Sleek Blouse and Statement Necklace

Statement Necklace

Elegant. That’s how a shiny new black button-down and a statement necklace can make one feel. Black is sleek and a fantastic necklace gives any outfit a little extra punch. This specific button-down is one of the non-iron shirts that Banana has been advertising for several seasons now, and when I finally tried one on and found that it actually fit quite nicely, I decided to add it to my closet. It was a good choice! Now I just have to wait and see if this non-iron claim is for real. I am a lazy dresser and never remember to iron before going to bed, so as I stumble around in the morning getting ready for work, the last thing I want to do is pull out the ironing board to make my shirt presentable for the office.

Fabulous, right? There aren’t a lot of colors, but the intricate pattern and loose chain make for quite the eye-catching piece. I love the way it looks peaking out from the collar of the button-down, and I think that it could also work above the shirt when completely buttoned up. Next time!
