You can never go wrong with a button down shirt like this striped one from Shein.  The cool patches really appealed to me and they take the business feel of a button down away. I usually wear this grey blazer in the spring because of it’s light color and 3/4 sleeves, but when I put the two pieces together, I fell in love with how the striped sleeves peeked out.  It reminded me of the long bell sleeve trend that is all rage right now.  This look is great way to see how you can experiment with layering. Go ahead and try wearing a long sleeve knit under a short sleeve top or wear a turtleneck underneath a slip dress.  It takes a little getting used to but the effect is cool and modern. What do you think of my layered look here?

I’m going to see the musical Hamilton this Sunday and I’m so excited that I’m about to burst. (We just recently found out that Wayne Brady will be playing the part of Aaron Burr at our show. I am huge fan of “Who’s Line Is it Anyway?” Yay! ) I have been listening to the music all week and have been inspired by the events surrounding the beginning of our democracy which is so fitting since the inauguration is today.  I’m not a big fan of Donald Trump but I will say that we are a strong country and from listening to Hamilton’s music and story, I believe we can make it through.  I’m praying for all of us during this tumultuous time.  Enjoy your weekend!
