If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you’d know that I have a thing for button-downs. They have been a mainstay in my wardrobe for so many years, dating all the way back to my prep school days! There’s something comforting and undeniably polished about a white button-down, you can’t ever go wrong with wearing one.

This season, the white button down is getting re-worked. I’m always a fan of change and I love the unique interpretations I’m seeing for sale. I went ahead and snagged my fave style, the stretched, off-the-shoulder version. For this style, it looks as if the top is turned 180 degrees, and then the head hole was stretched, creating a unique, off-the-shoulder silhouette with structure. Simplicity compliments this look so well, so I went ahead and kept things easy in jeans and vintage accessories. read more

Is everything! And lucky for all of you, it’s still available online. I’m on a white blouse kick, and I think this open back top by Style Stalker might take the cake as my current favorite. I get so many compliments whenever I wear this top. I first wore it for a video shoot for Refinery 29, which hasn’t come out yet, and I got such positive feedback I decided to buy it (originally, I had pulled it from a showroom.)

It’s all about the details. The wave like piping across the front adds a structural intrigue to an otherwise bohemian silhouette. I decided to go totally baggy here and wear it with flared, cropped, raw denim. I know they say pair something loose with something fitted, but this combo – while not necessarily the most flattering – felt the freshest. I’m getting more and more comfortable with this jean style and have been wearing them a lot more often! read more
