Tweed Jacket and Light Wash Jeans (+ Min Edition Contrast Placket Silk Button Down Blouse Review)

This is one of my foolproof weekend uniforms for Spring: colorful tweed jacket, lightweight silk blouse, and light wash jeans. It's neither overdone nor nonchalant as though to say: I exerted some effort, but only enough to look presentable.

A few words about the Min Edition Contrast Placket Silk Button Down Blouse, which is hardly an inexpensive investment but will fit someone who shares my constitution (sizes run XS-M) without alterations.

The blouse is more substantial and opaque than many white-silk-blouse options currently available in stores but if you, like me, are not accustomed to wearing camisoles with blouses, a flesh-colored bra will work effectively to conceal bra outlines. 

Min Edition caters specifically to a proportionally petite crowd; the blouses will fit most women under 5'4 with an average bust or taller women with shorter torsos/arms and narrower (for their height) shoulders.
Size XS
Shoulder: 13.5" | Sleeve Length: 21.75" | Total Length: 25" (front) / 27" (back) | Underarm to Underarm: 17"

  15. Cute outfit! :-)
    I like the shirt you have on best with the contrast pop of grey on the placket front--it's clean and sleek, would work well as a layering piece under many of my jackets + sweaters...I could see this becoming a go-to staple!

  16. Both the black dots and gray floral tie neck blouses are adorable but I like the idea of a thick opaque silk blouse. It is completely versatile. I have been searching for one just like it but most are too thin

  28. My favorite item is the Contrast Placket Silk Button Down Blouse featured in the post. I've been wanting to add a white/cream silk blouse to my wardrobe for a long time, but I haven't settled on which to buy. I've been avidly following all of your reviews of white/cream silk blouses. Although Min Edition's version would fit me much better, Everlane is the front runner thus far because of its combination of price and quality.

  30. I personally prefer the Contrast Silk Button Down Blouse because it's so versatile. However, this beautiful blue check dress on their Facebook page is absolutely gorgeous. It's feminine and simply designed. I really hope they put it on their website soon. https://scontent-a-lga.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/t1.0-9/q71/s720x720/1497692_620646801333490_134617184_n.jpg
