Striped Blouse For the Win & We Got a New Car!

I blogged about how much I love stripes last week and when I saw this gorgeous striped blouse on fellow blogger and teacher extraordinaire Tara from Mix and Match Fashion, I just had to have it...plus, it was 50% off!





Blouse- The Limited (on sale!)
Necklace- c/o Stella & Dot


I cannot wait for fall when I can layer my striped blouses! 


...And um, oh yeah, we got a new car on Monday!  


Yay!  It's a 2013 Ford Explorer.


H hasn't gotten a new car in 12 years so we are so excited for this new addition! It is his car but of course I will be able to drive it on weekends :)

  2. I've always loved that shirt. Yay for new cars! DH put in the order for his. It won't get here until NOVEMBER! And of course he ordered a manual which I don't know how to drive. Phooey. He said that it was smooth as butta so hopefully he'll have no problems teaching me how to drive it. ;-)

  5. First off, I saw that same Limited top on Tara (I think it was last week?) and just love it. It's classic yet fun...and a super great deal! I own something similar otherwise I would have been all over it.
    You look gorgeous and look at those leg muscles! :)
    And after 12 years, I would say H deserves a new car. Awesome pick!

    PS - Would you consider doing the 'pop up comment box' option? I just find it's easier for commenting as I don't loose my page and can continue to scroll through other posts without having to return to the main page :) Thoughts? :)

  8. What size did you get if you don't mind telling? Trying to decide between an XS and a S - does it run small in the bust? Thanks!

  23. Congrats on the new car! It's fun, isn't it? I'm about due for a new one and while I think shopping for them can be tedious/stressful, actually picking one and getting to enjoy it after the whole process makes it worth it. Love your outfit today, too--you rock pencil skirts so darn well!

  25. You look really gorgeous, Veronica. Congratulations on your new car! The 2013 Ford Explorer is quite a choice. It’s got really high tech features, it has incredible crash test safety records, and most importantly, it is perfect for a smooth and comfortable ride. You and your husband are will definitely enjoy driving this baby!

  26. Wow! You look magnificent in that striped blouse! Anyway, having a new car is certainly a thing to get excited about after not getting a new car in 12 years. And just like what Ivo said, the Ford Explorer is a good choice. It looks elegant and beautiful, just like you! Drive safely and always remember to put on your seat belt whenever you drive!

  27. That’s certainly a manly car that your partner bought, but I think a pretty girl like you can handle it just fine. I can already imagine people being amazed once they see you get off the car wearing your striped blouse and high heels! You'll definitely blow them away, just like how the two of you were blown away by this equally exquisite car. :)
