i am wearing: crochet embroidered top c/o lily boutique, h&m tank, blank nyc skinny cargos, jcrew studded ballet flats, michael kors watch, my diy bracelet along with a few other old bracelets, nordstrom chandelier earrings and the clutch is from shopbop.

my friends all know that i LOVE white shirts. i am sorta diane keaton-ish in that way…or maybe it is meryl streep? or wait…is it katharine hepburn? i don’t know but when i came across this blouse, i sent out a tweet saying “tell me this shirt does not look like me”. it was totally calling my name. and a few minutes later i received a message that lily boutique wanted me to have it! and you know what…it is even prettier in person!!! i love all the details…you would never believe that this is a $37 blouse! lily boutique is also giving stylish housewife readers 10% off using discount code SH0831 through august 31st! go.now.

p.s. i want you to know i risked my life again taking these pics in what appears to be a rattlesnake’s dream den. oh, and did you catch the HUGE spider web in the 1st pic that i almost walked through? no? well why don’t you go back and click on it once or twice. i do this all for you. =) ha ha

    You have seriously converted me to the white shirt – I have bought 3 lightweight summery ones since seeing you model them! 🙂

    That top is beautiful. I see the smallest size is a small. How does it run? I always wear an xs in Loft tops to give you an idea of my size. You look tiny too and it fits you great. What size is yours? Thanks!!

    I love white shirts/tops you can never have too many and this one is really really lovely, looks so pretty and love it with those trousers (pants!) I have some very similar from J Crew but they are too tight and you have inspired me to get off my lazy bottom and make them fit again!!xx

    I am swooning over your lovliness today — that top is amazing. And please, please use caution, especially with your precious little one and pets, we had a rattlesnake incident a few years ago when we lived next to Mission Trails Regional Park (San Diego) and a rattlesnake bit our dog on top of her head. Our vet bill was almost two grand (anti-venom was scarce at the time). Luckily our dog survived, but it was touch-and-go. So please be extra careful April through October — prime rattlesnake season.
