Print Top for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Smart Version
We were gifted these shirts from NewChic, but I was not paid for writing my posts. All of our feelings are honest and true!

For some reason, I always imagine a collared, button down blouse as office wear. Maybe that’s because it’s what all the guys wear to work? So putting together these outfits took no stretch of the imagination. I added variety to our outfits by having us put on different items over our blouses: mom’s picture shows a cardigan over her blouse, Nancy put on a belt over her blouse, and I threw on a jacket over mine. You can see the exact same shirts styled for playtime (here). At the end of each post NewChic offers a discount for my readers and I have included my feedback of the items!
50’s Outfit: I’ve had these shoes for at least 4 years. I’m surprised every spring when the cut out heels are still in style! (Time to get the tootsies painted)
60’s Outfit: This necklace is a gold coin made into a necklace. My father worked at the Denver Mint for many years and so bought this for Nancy.
70’s Outfit: I realize many older women would only wear their black shoes with this outfit, but I love the trend of mixing it up with an unexpected color. As blogger, Tara, says “work doesn’t mean boring.”
Review of the 60’s model’s print top: I like Nancy’s shirt the best fit wise. It actually was plenty big and fit very nicely. Of course, I had to shorten it since it didn’t come in petites, but that’s to be expected. I consider it a wonderful transitional piece since the material is sheer! There were quite a few small threads on it that I had to trim off, but I find that with many brands!
