the classic button down

button down: gap // jeans: citizens of humanity // hat: gap (old) // flats: aldo // clutch: gap (recent) // necklace: james michelle // watch: michael kors 

There's a reason some things are classics. 
The white button down is definitely one of them. Admittedly, I have a hard time finding one that fits well and I finally found one recently from the Gap. If you don't own one of these, I highly suggest you do! Whether it's a more boyfriend fit or classic it's definitely something worth investing in. 
This week's Fashion Magazine Style Panel question asked us how we can take this classic and make it fresh. I thought it would be fun to pair it with some fall accessories. The clutch and hat give the shirt an updated look. Seriously though, how amazing is this clutch? I saw it online and literally gasped and had to have it. It's all leather and under $50! It's a little better on my wallet than the Clare Vivier one (as much as I really want that one). Fashion problems...haha

Hope you have a great start to your Monday!

  6. I love how classic and stylish your outfit is. The hat is perfect!

    I also have a very hard time finding button downs that fit me properly. A lot of the time, I have to wear them unbuttoned for a more casual look because they look funny on me.
