|Yes, I'm a school teacher.|
I wore it with the Subway Stairs Skirt I bought from Anthropologie a couple years ago. I loved the skirt, but could never figure out what to wear with it. I think this blouse suits it beautifully.
|What's that over there?|
I did have a couple problems wearing the blouse. Because the skirt sits a little low on my waist, the blouse didn't want to stay tucked in. I think one more snap at the bottom will fix that. I also found that the snaps going up the back made it pretty uncomfortable to lean back on the chairs in the concert and restaurant. I don't really see any way to fix this - buttons would be even worse. I guess one must suffer for fashion . . .
Interestingly, I didn't have any discomfort at all from the neck. In fact, the longer I wore it, the looser the neck seemed to be. I think I just got used to it. I really like the look of the high neck, so I'm glad it's not as bothersome as I'd thought it would be.
And before we left, I painted my nails RED to complement my outfit:
Boy oh boy, do I love this color! And application was so much easier thanks to the tip from Gerry and SoKnitPicky about doing the right hand first! Thanks, girls!
Even despite the minor wardrobe malfunctions, I felt pretty in my new blouse, and I was even stopped by two different groups of ladies in the restaurant who wanted to compliment me on my ensemble! I definitely want to make this blouse again, so I'm going to check my wardrobe and see what else I have that will go with this style. I'd love to do one in silk . . .
