Casual Winter Look

I found the cutest top last week!  Y'all know I stick to a pretty basic uniform so it's really not that surprising that it's a white top that I've paired with some basic neutrals.  But it's got a cute little key-hole detail and both work and mom-age appropriate plus it looks equally good with black work pants as it does with jeans!  Casual, work, and dressy.  I'm sold.  For someone with a slightly large bust for my frame I also love anything that doesn't look matronly while keeping me covered up.  Can you relate?

It's from the Nic + Zoe line at Nordstrom which was new to me.  I like how everything is just that side of appropriate so you can wear it to work or Church without being frumpy.  I've learned that I just want to look effortless and pretty and don't need every outfit I wear to be cutting edge.

The top is thick enough to be worn on it's own although I don't recommend it in crazy cold wintery conditions, I just bared it all to show you the lines!  But in reality I think the material is soft and thin so it looks really good under layers as well.

 Lots of really pretty stuff in the Nic + Zoe line.  Perfect for those occasions when you need to be a little more conservative.  I've rounded up my favorites for you!
