classic button down – a wardrobe essential

A classic white button down is one of those items that every woman should have in her closet. Extremely versatile and it goes with everything. One of my favorite ways to wear it is with jeans. I call it ‘instant chic’. 

What I love about this particular shirt is the length, which not only looks chic but is perfect for layering. 

Shirt: Ann Taylor – now on sale! / Jeans old – similar here and here  / Flats old – similar here -gets great reviews!  here and pointy toe option / Bag: Henri Bendel – love this option for less  /  Necklace: Bauble Bar – love this one too / Sunglasses: Ray-Ban / Watch: Daniel Wellington

Now, did you all have a great weekend?   How amazing was the Lunar Eclipse?!! Simply incredible!  I think I said ‘wow’ one too many times 🙂

Wishing you all a fantastic start to your week!

    Absolutely instantly chic! And I can see that it would be cute under a sweater or cardigan for sure! The eclipse was neat, I was afraid we wouldn't see it, but the moon peeked out from behind the clouds. Hope you are feeling better!

    I have a question about accessing the blog archives, is that still an option? From time to time I liked to look through specific months, but can't figure out how to do that anymore

      It's been gone since the new layout 🙁 I've tried to add it in gadgets but it shows as added (must be something messed up within the template). Hopefully it will get fixed soon as I use it too quite a bit. Thanks for the reminder 🙂
