Sometimes I feel as button downs are underestimated. Or perhaps I’m the one that underestimates them.  Especially white or light blue ones aka classics. They go with everything (why do I feel like I’m repeating myself? I think I went over this not to long ago).  If you don’t own one, you seriously need to reconsider getting one…like yesterday!

Thanks for stopping by today!

    These are gorgeous coated skinnies. I wanted a pair last year, so I should probably actually purchase a pair this year 🙂

    I have been DYING for a pair of coated skinnies.. They have them in Old Navy and I waited a little too long to get them, thinking they would go down in price, and I missed my size 🙁 I am in LOVE with this whole look though! Fabulous style, Lilly! Sprinkles&Sequins

    My basic white button down needs to be replaced… and I am desperate need of a nice classic light blue one too! Love the coated skinnies…I have my eye on a pair at Madewell. Hoping for a miracle (or an amazing sale!)

    Love! So cute. As always! 🙂 PS did you see my question on yesterday's blog about wrinkles? Am I the only one who hates them with a passion? I have that same skirt and it just drives me bananas that it wrinkles the second I sit down. :-/

      Thank you :). That seems to be the case with j crew skirts. It's annoying but I tend to ignore it after a while 🙂

    Beautiful!! You look so gorgeous in your pictures, girl!I love this look so much. Totally agree about the button downs. In fact, I'm certain my behavior with them could be qualified as hoarding.Great jeans, and I love black with cognac. XO, Gina

    Totally agree! I have to stop myself from wearing my chambray shirt once a week to work. It's the ultimate neutral.
