The Find: A Scalloped Blouse

Jan 24, 2019

We talked on Tuesday about how tough it is to find blazers with feminine details, but what about blouses?  In my experience most are too basic, and when they try to punch up the femininity, they often go too far.  (There is such a thing as too much ruffle.)  But this one from H&M is the perfect balance of feminine and basic.

This H&M scalloped-detail blouse ($35) would look great under a blazer or cardigan.  I would also wear it solo with a pair of colorful trousers.  And it would be nice with thicker, ponte leggings and a sweater on the plane.

My plan is to use it in a Two Ways post early next week.  I wanted to have it up today, but the week got away from me.

    Wow, I love this. I can see this going to my casual workplace with jeans too!

  2. Jessica says:

    I also love this! I wonder how thick it is, I hate having to wear camisole’s for the purpose of concealing my bra/body. At such a great price though I think I might pay to find out! Looking forward to the Two Ways post on it!

    FYI Aritzia has a (much more expensive) cropped scalloped sweater I’ve been wavering on purchasing. https://www.aritzia.com/us/en/product/sardou-sweater/60326.html

    1. I love this!
    2. The blog has been great lately! I know you’ve been slammed with your new job in the Montana legislature but I feel like I can tell how much more inspired you are recently. I’ve been reading your blog for 6-7 years and I feel like I could tell how much you struggled the past couple years. I’ve been depressed since mid-2016 and only recently have begun to feel better. I’m so excited to not feel totally apathetic and unmotivated and I hope you are experiencing some of the same even with all you are still juggling! I’m rooting for you!

    I love a scallop. I don’t really look good in very frilly pieces, but the scallop is a bit feminine while still structured.

    Love this blouse! I have searched 4 quite some time for an affordable feminine scalloped blouse to wear to work or on date night. Thanks
