CHIC AND SIMPLE: STYLING THE WHITE BUTTON DOWN

Hi guys! I know I said expect a post Sunday, but I was inspired by an outfit I wore the other day and couldn’t wait to write about it. So a challenge for me at my new job has been what to wear-shocking right? I say that not because I don’t know but because the social dress code, meaning what everyone else wears, changes day to day. Some people wear like button ups and ties, others wear jeans and a blouse, some wear flats others heels etc. etc. It seems the overall consensus is casual unless you have a client meeting or something. In trying to stay away from to dressy and too casual the white button down shirt has been one of my faves!

I’ve styled it down with dark jeans or boyfriend jeans and up with a dark printed pants and wedges. I have a few of them that I got at H&M, Macy’s and Target , some long sleeved and one 3/4 length sleeve and each with different details, so that I can wear the look more than once but still kinda change it up. Every time I’ve worn a look like that I get a compliment on my outfit and who doesn’t love those. The style is super crisp and can be paired with so many different accessories- my favorites so far are a statement necklace or bangles! The next look I’m plotting is the shirt with a maybe royal blue or navy skirt- here’s an example. I haven’t decided if I like it better with a skater type skirt or a straight pencil type skirt yet but I’m working on it.

After wearing them to work, I was looking for ways to wear them on the weekends, so I turned to Pinterest, The like vault of fashion/styling ideas. I haven’t tried it out yet but I’ve seen it styled with cutoff shorts and like a badass pair of sunglasses or as a topper over a tank top with a pair of boyfriend jeans. I’m still looking for suggestions, so if you guys have them leave them down below! I also love when you guys tweet me so either follow me @ItsReallyKc or leave your Twitter so I can follow you!
