I LOVE this look! It is such a great look for a girl on the go! It is also a great spring look! The long sleeves keep me relatively warm in the cool, crisp mornings, but I can also take it off when it gets warm in the afternoon!
Plus, the button down itself is a staple! It is a great transitional piece that can be style all year round! I am so glad I found this one. This is a linen shirt -pros: it is very breathable! Cons: it wrinkles really easily! And I do mean REALLY easily! From just getting these pictures in alone and having it tied that way, it was already really wrinkled. I'll have to keep an iron handy for this one! xD
The red shorts have been in my closet for a little while now and I actually think I love them more now than I did when I first got them! BUT with that said, one thing I will never get over is that they do not have pockets! Grrr!
But I do love the overall fit and color!
Little bit of a funny story for this post!
When I was taking these pictures, apparently the businesses in this particular shopping center were not crazy about me doing that!
A police officer kindly asked me to leave, after getting just a few pictures in. He was very cordial for his part and asked about the blog a little! But ultimately he did ask me to leave that particular area.
That was a first for me!
But it made for a good story! And now I also know a place to avoid -which is a shame because it is a pretty space!
I am thinking about reviving the May Style Challenge this year! For a few reasons! For one thing I am really trying to be more conscious about sustainability vs fast fashion. I am big on doing what I can to protect the environment and it is not lost on me that the fashion industry is one of the biggest pollutants out there. As best I can, I do not want to contribute to that.
Additionally, I do want to save money as well as challenge myself creatively by finding new ways to restyle beloved pieces and get the most wear out of them!
So stay tuned for that!
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a great week! =)
