Miranda Kerr took a daytime stroll with Orlando Bloom in Sydney wearing dark-blue skinny jeans with this floral Equipment blouse ($248), an orange bag, Miu Miu tortoise sunglasses ($367), and black suede flats. Floral blouses are all over these days, but what we love about this one in particular are its mocked collar and moody color palette. The black background is serious, while the blue and white flowers add just the right dash of color. Wear it with jeans like Miranda did, pair it with a black pencil skirt for work, or work it with a black leather skirt for a night out.
