Hi there friends! 

A couple glasses of wine deep (A. because I’m already celebrating the excitement that I’m about to share with you and B. because I can’t ever seem to stop multitasking, clearly) I bring you the second installation of the “1 piece, 2 ways” series! If you missed the first portion, you really ought to check out these fine pants

Shanna and I both instantly fell in love with this checked panel blouse from Asos. To show you the versatility of the top you can wear pretty much anywhere, I chose to take the business casual route- pairing it with a pencil skirt and a pair of punky gladiator booties for good measure. This look will get you from the office to happy hour and beyond. If your work environment is a little more straight-laced, you can easily pair this look with pumps or D’Orsay’s and change into your edgier shoes on the way to meet your friends after 5 o’clock.

Shanna’s twist is perfect for daytime or a casual night out with her leather coat and leggings. I love the way she paired her top with chunky blue heels, which are perfect for spring! Be sure to check out her full shoot over at Celebritized In Chicago
What do you think? How would you wear this top?
