Happy August, everyone! I can’t believe how quickly this summer has gone by, and I’m definitely not ready for it to be over. I’m not going to talk about depressing things like senior year today though. I haven’t blogged in about a week, but these pictures are actually from last week. It was a breezy and pleasant-enough day that layering up in chambray button-down seemed like a good idea.
I’ve had this button-down for ages, before it was even trendy – I featured it in my first-ever clothing haul on the blog. It’s a smidge too small though, and I’ve always struggled how to wear it. Some of my favorite bloggers do a really good job at it though – case in point Jenny in Jacquard, Style by Santina and Audrey from Putting Me Together.
To keep this look summery, I paired the button-down with my thrifted floral dress (last seen here). The thing about thrifting is that you have to keep an open mind. Take this dress – it’s maternity. I bought it when I was about to start college, obviously without having any intention to be a mom in the near future (still don’t, thanks for asking). But it’s a flattering fit, and the print is fun. And so this dress found a happy place in my closet.
