We Bought It, We Wore It, We Loved It: Equipment Sleeveless Silk Blouse

It’s no secret that we love our button down silk blouses the same way most people love their children.  We take them out for ice cream, we would do anything to protect them from the elements, and we’re constantly showing strangers pictures of them on our phones.  Plus, we know firsthand the financial strain of being a parent — our dry cleaning bills aren’t far off from some college tuition prices.

With summer only 18 bottles of whiskey away (wait, everyone doesn’t measure time in consumption of alcohol?), it’s high time we start planning our warm-weather wardrobes.  The combination of steamy subway stations and long walks to get from our offices to the nearest bar is a recipe for sweating through all of our clothes.  Nobody wins — except the antiperspirant-industrial complex.

Unfortunately, for a natural fiber, silk is surprisingly unforgiving (not unlike its biggest fans, us).  But, the thought of abandoning our favorite fabric and cut for an entire season is inconceivable.

The best way we know how to deal with this is to go sleeveless.  This option from Equipment is a great choice: we love the bright print, the breezy cut, and the price.  Plus, as long as we aren’t wearing our hearts on our sleeves (since we have none — hearts or sleeves), we might as well wear it on our blouses.

When it comes down to it, summer silk blouses should be like North Korea: unarmed.

  1. Sleeveless anything are nice for girls with non-cookiecutter figures (do any real life people have these?) – anything that eliminates a measurement to worry about it is a-okay in my book.

  2. Love sleeveless silk for summer – practical but still professional for work!
