Do You Like My Pony?

Shirt:Old Navy; Jeans: BCBG; Scarf: Michael Stars; Hat: Hatter; Sunglasses: Ray Ban; Earrings: Forever21; Bracelets: ForLove and Anthropologie: Purse: Purchased at Sun Drops Nail Spot; Shoes: Macys
I've always been so fascinated by Greek mythology.  This steel horse kind of reminded me of the Trojan Horse from Virgil's epic poem, The Aeneid.  It's so large and masculine.  I felt that at any moment, a bunch of hot "Greek" men were going to run out (I'm channeling Gerard Butler in 300 and Eric Bana and Brad Pitt in Troy.)  Ok, so maybe my fantasy didn't come true.  But I did spend the night making wishes, breaking plates, dancing and screaming 'Opa!' at the Greek restaurant Bachannal.  And, I don't want to toot my own horn - but, toot.  This baby can kick!

On a more important note, a white blouse is one of the queen staples to any wardrobe because it's clean, crisp, simple and never goes out of style.  Buy one that is classically cut with a slight edge and that has a slim cut.  When the fabric is slightly drapey, the effect is immediately sexy.  You can tuck it in, leave it out, wear it with jeans or a black pencil skirt.  Really, the white top fulfills all of your style desires.

P.S. Happy Super Bowl Sunday.  If you're into that.
