Wearing //
J.Crew skirt (old)
J.Crew Factory Sandals



I love a classic button-down. It can be worn with practically everything, and it always looks clean and put-together. Express makes my favorite variety, and I own about six of them in different colors and prints. When Express had a sale a few weeks back, Gina kindly did us all a favor and wrote a post about it (otherwise I never would have known). I bought two, but this one is by far the one I reached for all weekend long. I wore it twice, that's how in love with it I am! I wore it first with a simple skirt, and then I wore it again the following day with distressed denim. 



Speaking of Gina, I am linking up with her and Carylee today :)

  1. Ahh! I love both ways you wore this top! It's so cute. And did you get your hair cut again? It looks great! That's such a current style. I replied back to your comment on my blog but I am also leaning towards returning the sheer plaid shirt. Like...75% return, 25% keep. The cami thing is just...ugh. I'm so bummed because the print is so cute.

    1. Thank you Gina, this blouse is just the next portofino I had been looking for! I like the dark blue stripes. It's very classic, almost nautical which I love.

      I did get my hair cut recently :) I think I'm going to begin the grow out process though. I don't want it as long as I had it before the big chop, because that was so much work to maintain. I'm not very good at hair styling. In fact, I'm terrible at it!

      And yes, I returned the plaid shirt today. I just couldn't take it! Way too sheer for me!

  2. Yay for a top that never quits! I love seeing other people style items I have to get inspiration.

    1. Versatility is key! If I can't come up with at least three or four other pieces in my existing wardrobe to wear a new item with, I try to pass. This one is great!

    1. Thank you Lorna, I'm sure everyone is sick of seeing this bag! I've literally carried it all Summer long, but it's such a great color and the shape is perfect. I can lug around all of my stuff in it without worry )
