Another packing note from my recent travels: in the past, I never tried bringing along anything silk, because I figured it would just wrinkle horribly in the suitcase. But I have a couple of silk Maria Cornejo tops that lately I’m very attached to, and I felt like they needed to come along. And here’s the thing I learned: silk does indeed wrinkle horribly, but all you have to do is hang the item in question up for a few hours—preferably in the bathroom, after a shower—and it’s good as new. I’m also just liking in general how effortlessly polished silk blouses are, and how they elevate a pair of jeans and some clogs. And I am digging the python print on this Anine Bing blouse.
I like the big pockets and wide-ish lapel here.
This oversized option seems destined for my closet.
This has a wrap silhouette in the front and a shirttail in the back, which is clever.
Such a retroishly fun squiggle print.
This boxy short-sleeved top comes in a ton of colors, but I’m really liking this bold magenta.
Just a very streamlined and sophisticated, rather perfect button-down option.
This boatneck is feminine without being the least bit prissy.
A very solid under $100 option.
This has a quite flattering shape and a sweet, spring-y print.
The shirred details at the shoulder make this one hang especially nicely.
