Long time readers know that an ivory blouse and jeans is my favorite transitional outfit. Now that spring is here, it’s time to update the look for the new season.

The cream ruffle-trim silk blouse on the left looks a little darker in the photo than reality but it’s the perfect option to tuck in or leave out. I bought the Lace Cuff Blouse on the right is the absolute perfect ivory blouse I’ve ever seen. I ended up buying it in ivory and praline but it’s also available in black.

These High-Rise Chain-Embellished Straight Jeans are the perfect pair for when you want to tuck in a blouse and look polished and pulled together.

The stitching on these Leather Pointed-Toe Flats take the flats from boring to beautiful.

This Saint Laurent Medium Chain Bag Carré Rive Gauche in Raffia is perfect for warmer weather.

One of my followers serendipitously messaged me yesterday asking for help finding pearl drop earrings for his wife. I told him he would be in luck today because I love pairing pearl earrings like these 14K Yellow Gold and Cubic Zirconia Freshwater Pearl Drop Earrings with ivory blouses.

This Estée Lauder Pure Color Creme Lipstick in rose tea is the perfect finishing touch.

The best part of this out fit is how many different ways in which it can be styled.

I also ordered this ivory Silk-Satin Blouse. It fits true to size but definitely needs a t-shirt bra. The white Split Neck Popover Top on the right is also available in black.

These Frame Le Super High high-rise straight-leg jeans are always a popular style.

These are the perfect luggage colored Ballerina Flat to pair with jeans.

I love pairing the color of this blush Flap Shoulder Bag with an ivory blouse and jeans.

These 14-karat gold, pearl and diamond earrings are another fabulous pearl earring option.

The Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait High-Intensity Lip Colour is another subtle shade for spring.

I love a tie neck blouse and dark jeans for a version of this outfit for the office.

The bow tie georgette blouse on the left is made of sustainable fabric. The tie-neck blouse on the right is from one of the most popular young designers.

These dark Boot-Cut Jeans are perfect for the office with a heel or a chic pair of flats.

These Raffia Flats are another great item for warmer weather.

This tan Shopper Bag with Buckle is a chic bag at a great price.

One of my guilty pleasures is the pale Hermes Nail Polish. The colors are perfect and it lasts too.

I love the uneven look of these 18K-Gold-Plated & Lab-Grown Baroque Pearl Drop Earrings.

You can also create this outfit with an embroidered cotton top.

The white cotton Ruffle and Lace Blouse on the left is a more casual style. The white Pintucked Cotton-Voile Blouse on the right is a slightly longer style.

These criss cross frayed high-rise straight-leg organic jeans are an updated take on a classic.

These grosgrain-trimmed raffia Mary Jane ballet flats make me excited for warmer weather.

This Leather-Trimmed Canvas Shoulder Bag is a great option to wear to work and on the weekend.

These 18K Gold-Plated, Lab-Grown Pearl and Cubic Zirconia Earrings are a great deal.

I wear the Westman Atelier Squeaky Clean Liquid Lip Hydrating Lip Balm in Garconne but the Chou Chou color would be perfect with this outfit.

I found a top that’s almost an exact match for the one that Lauren Santo Domingo wore to New York fashion week many years ago.

If you like a cropped top, this lace-trimmed pintucked cotton-voile top is for you.

These Straight Jeans are on sale and come in a wide range of inclusive sizes.

I love the look of these Crochet Raffia Ballet Flats but the first thing I would do is cut off the elastic strap that is distracting from the casual look.

If you want the look of a designer bag but without the designer bag, I recommend this Combined Bucket Bag.

These 18K Yellow Gold and Freshwater Pearl Drop Earrings are a simple yet chic style.

Pale spring skin calls out for this Hermès Plein Air H Trio Healthy Glow Mineral Powder bronzer.

Bon week-end!
