Without question, one of my biggest pet peeves is gaping between buttons on a blouse. So of course, when I heard there was a shirt specifically designed to solve this problem I was eager to learn more.
Meet your new best friend – the No Peep Shirt from Marks & Spencer. This shirt has a hidden placket and concealed buttons at the fullest part of your bust, which together prevent gaping!!
Now onto the styling. It’s a common misperception that button down blouses are only good for work. So for today’s post I want to show two completely different looks (one for the office and one for the weekend) with the exact same button down blouse.
For the office look, I chose to pair this blouse with this pleated grey skirt. I love the color combination of the blush with the grey. As an aside, I would also wear this skirt in the winter with opaque tights and black booties and a turtleneck.
For the weekend look, I switched out the skirt for a pair of high waisted skinny jeans. To keep the look more casual, I also changed the high heels for flats.
So are you as excited as I am about the No Peep Shirt, which finally solves the problem of gaping between buttons?! Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks to Marks & Spencer and Shopping Links for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.
Both lovely. But outfit 1….oooh-la-la, it is subtle yet bold. This might be the first time i’ve EVER seen a lightweight pleated skirt like that in grey. Interesting combination of colours. It works. Now i’m left wondering what i would have thought if the trousers had been grey as well.
I can’t get over how much I love these looks!! So so cute!
You’re so sweet! Thank you!!! Hope you had a lovely Memorial Day weekend! xx yael
