My Style List: A button down blouse for any day

Yesterday I had an appointment to get my hair done by my {awesome} sister in law… I was long overdue! She works in an upscale salon, so I wanted to dress up… I knew just the thing: the classic button down blouse I’d received courtesy of Foxcroft at their recent New York City 25th Anniversary Silver Soiree.

When I attended the Foxcroft event in the Garment District of Manhattan about a month ago, I hadn’t heard about the Foxcroft brand. After seeing the quality that goes into picking fabrics and detailing their signature non iron button down blouse, I was impressed.

This past spring, I cleaned out my closet completely in my #40bagsin40days project. I tried on each piece of clothing and if it didn’t fit or I didn’t love it – gone! After four years and two pregnancies… well, I was left with a slimmer wardrobe.

Adding a classic button down blouse to update your wardrobe is a great idea, because it won’t end up on the discard pile due to shifting style trends.

A button down blouse can fit a variety of looks. Tailored, untucked, open over a tank, with a skirt or with jeans. For the office, church, or for… looking great while running out to get your hair done!

So let me tell you: I put my Foxcroft Non-Iron Essential button down blouse on in the morning at 8:30. Then I had to feed the kids, do dinner prep, take the boys to the children’s museum, feed them lunch, drive an hour, and THEN go to the hair salon. Do you know that amazing Foxcroft blouse stood up to all of that with nary a wrinkle? I looked as fresh at 3 pm as I did at 9 am!

I have the Foxcroft Non Iron Fitted 3/4 sleeve blouse in Navy, and it’s quickly become a favorite. The best part is the navy color isn’t really a true dark navy, but more of a chambray color – I think it’s a color that lasts across many seasons and style trends. The fitted style was perfect for wearing untucked over a dressy pair of pants (hides things, you know?). And… 100% cotton for the win!

Did you notice the NO IRON feature?! Yes!! (says the mom who absolutely hates to iron clothing!).

And then… for more dynamic flair, I have the Foxcroft Wild Dot Print Roll Sleeve button down blouse. This blouse is delightful to wear. Soft fabric that moves with you. Lightweight. Sleeves full length or rolled and buttoned for a 3/4 length look. Plus the wild dot print is a blend between polka dots and animal prints – for those of us who can’t make up our minds! Now, this shirt DOES need to be ironed, however, little tip: if you take it right out of the dryer and hang dry, the wrinkles are so minimal the print virtually hides them. So… unless it’s a serious occasion, I’m not ironing this blouse either!

I’m working on keeping my closet down to only the pieces I feel great wearing, that fit a variety of looks, and coordinate with other items in my closet. A button down blouse from Foxcroft does that… and keeps me away from the ironing board!

Like the navy chambray color in the pic... white or a lighter shade blue would be cool also. Not sure if I'll be placing any orders online though, w/ or w/o the coupon.
