Finally got a dry enough day for me to wear my new sheer floral blouse purchased at the OC meetup last month. I'm not usually big on floral prints for myself, but this one has a painterly Renaissance feel to it which I just love; plus it's got ALL of "my" colors in it, and from far away it looks somewhat nebulous.

Pairing with black bottoms is the easy option, and it does look fab that way and I'll be wearing that plenty, but for today I felt like trying it with my white slouchy skinnies which I'm still enjoying for fall. Since I'm on Team High Contrast I chose my tall black boots, which also help to balance the dark top half. The bottom half's equestrian vibe made me want to button the blouse all the way up, so I did! Added my clutch because I can't seem to stop wearing it (Note To Self: get another clutch). I feel very Modern 70s in this, as is befitting of my royal title :}

What do we think of the white jeans here? Too jarring? Appropriately unexpected? Comments, critiques, thoughts and questions welcome!

EDIT: I promise this blouse is a proper length! These skinnies are all baggy and drop-crotched and whatnot. Also added a detail photo that better shows the floral, the cute little gold button at the top, and my copper stud stud earrings.
