So I’ve worn this outfit once before and got the best reaction from one of my coworkers. “You look some type of high-fashion nun.  Well that’s an interesting take on the ensemble. I can totally see how the buttoned up collar would conjure up images of Mother Superior but beyond the collar, my partial shirt offers up a whole lot of attitude (totally in a demure righteous kind of way of course).

I paired the sleeved creation with a plum-colored flare dress and there you have it, drama. The cotton dress gives great movement and its bold color ups the playful ante as the perfect combination to the dresses graceful flow when in motion.  I purchased the top some years ago so it was difficult to find something similar.  As usual, I’ve provided a couple of links to similar items below. If that doesn’t work you, you can always get creative with an old shirt and a pair of scissors. Have fun!
