A Week of Tops: The Best of Mango

Dec 13, 2021

I knew my wardrobe wasn’t ready to go back to the office, but I didn’t know just how unprepared it was.  The last two weeks have proven that I do not own enough tops to keep my looks fresh.  Many of my previous work horses no longer fit.  Others are showing their age.  And it’s time to restock my selection of shirts, blouses, and assorted tops.

My goal is to get to ten tops that fit, look good, and can be used to make multiple outfits.  (Right now, I have four.)  10 is a good number because even if I need to wear one every day, I’m still rotating on a two week schedule.  Often enough to re-wear pieces, not so often that anyone will notice or I’ll get bored.

So this week, I’m going to share a few of my favorite tops from the brands and retailers that can help me refresh my wardrobe without sending me into hock.  Let’s start with Mango.  Every blouse is under-$100.

    I’ve been looking for blouses here in Spokane, but it is hard to find anything that does not have puffy sleeves, voluminous amounts of fabric or ruffles that overwhelm my petite five foot frame. Are you able to offer any suggestions? I’d love to have a one or two blouses to wear under a blazer or cardigan.

      hear you on the puffed sleeve front; I’m also 5’0 and it’s NOT a good look for us, and hard to avoid since it’s a trend that’s everywhere right now!

This weekend, I got two hours to myself for the first time in months. Really to myself. My child was asleep. My dogs were asleep. Kyle was off playing cards with his friends. My house was clean, and there was nothing else to do but sit in my bed and scroll Instagram. It was glorious. […]

November AMA: You Asked, I Answered

Another month has come and gone, and between a busy work schedule, illness and the search for new childcare, I almost forgot to ask for questions for the AMA.  Luckily, I remembered late last night.  So here we go. I always think it’s funny when people send rude or overly personal questions when I put […]
