Blackbirds...

I have had this blackbird blouse for a couple months now and this is the first time wearing it.  I put it towards the back of my closet and forgot about it but now that we are reunited I plan on styling it lots of different ways.  Today was obviously casual with jeans and a little red cardigan but I can't wait to dress it up for work.
