Casual Chic in a White Button Down
Hi friends & happy Monday, or another start to a fantastic week! Today I'm stepping outside my typical style box and showcasing a basic white button down and how simple and chic it can make an outfit be. You heard me, this is something that I typically wouldn't be drawn to. Honestly because I don't really know how to style classic collard button downs, but this particular one I fell in love with!
Blouse: Shein | Bralette: Target | Jeans: AG via Nordstrom | Purse: Henri Bendel | Bracelets: The Styled Collection (cuff + nail), Henri Bendel (flower cuff) | Hair: T3 wand | Lips: Dose "Lazy Daisy" | Necklace: TSC | Shoes: Nordstrom | Sunnies: Henri Bendel
How pretty is this blouse, like for reals tho! I always love a nice white. It's just so clean, crisp, and bright. The floral design on this blouse with the sheer in-between won me over so hard. Love love love the detailing of this blouse, even this it's so simple. Ya know sometimes less is more.
Now, I styled it a little on the sassy side here wearing a blush bralette underneath. Not gonna lie, I was a little nervous at first that I was being a little too revealing, but I started adding my accessories and it came together. You most definitely could wear a tank underneath instead tho. I also think this top would look adorable tied up in the front with a pair of shorts. You could also rock it with wearing it open obvi with a shirt underneath, or even just tied around your waist... I do that all the time with button downs, and it just adds al little extra to your look.
The only down fall of the shirt is the elastic cuffs. I like the style of them, but they jut a little tight. My forearm started tingling at one point of the day from circulation loss, lol what we do for fashion ;) I'm being a little extreme right now, but if I could I would love to make them a little looser thats all. Everything else about this shirt I LOVE! Great quality and structure and so so cute... and guess what it's only $13.
Another steal, you're welcome!
I'm wearing this shirt in a L for reference. It seems to run a tad on the smaller more fitted side, but I wanted it to be a little more baggy, especially for my long arms.
Just to touch base on some of the beauty picks of this look too... I stayed pretty neutral in this look. Did my normal face, but honestly I put on a little mascara (which I know you can't see through my sunnys), some blush, and a lip. That's it! I have all my picks below as well, but these have been my go to lips and blush as of late! So pretty and natural, it's just a great flushed pink look. Ahh love.
