Button down

If I had to choose one piece to describe my summer style, it would be the button down shirt. Cuffed, knotted, a little bit slouchy.
White is definitely my favorite for summer, and I wont be happy until I've paired it with everything in my closet.

What a pretty skirt!

Alissa said...

The button down top is the sole reason I have looked somewhat decent on the weekends. They are so easy to wear and so darn comfortabl!

Lisa said...

Adorable! Love the colors and those bangles are precious.

I'm kinda in love with button-downs too this season and I'm pairing my yellow one with almost everything in my closet too! The skirt is made by you? I must say, you are so incredibly talented! Very pretty, dear, and love your green and turquoise accents!

I am starting to see why having to use my 31 for 31 capsule - the button-down has been a godsend.

Loooove this! I really need to get more button down shirts...I only have 2 and I can't wear one by itself because I sweat too much XDXD (TMI)

Lynne DeVenny said...

I am crazy about your pendant and bangles, both sophisticated and fun. I do love your button front shirts. You make me want to do more with the ones I own.

A white button-down is perfect for summer, and it does go with everything! I love it paired with these pretty summery colors!

Frannie Pantz said...

Funny you should say that because I was just thinking the same about myself this morning! I have worn a LOT of button downs this summer--I'm even wearing one now! I love this pink, white and turquoise look Lydia!

You really do have the best button downs. I have a hard time finding them slouchy enough, but you make me want to try harder. Love this look; perfectly summery.


The outfit is really pretty!

Lucky for you then that white goes with everything! Even white. How about that?

Pink and that sea-foam color... look so good together! You remind me of saltwater taffy, which is awesome since you're totally by some salt water (I'm assuming that's an ocean, which it may or may not be... we can pretend :D).

I love that skiiirt!

The Closet Shopper said...

Love it. It's such a breezy chic look. I just made up a new genre of style! Breezy chic! ha


Allie said...

Everything about your outfit is fantastic! I love love love the color of your skirt...and I'm a firm believer that a white shirt can cure any "I have nothing to wear" moments! Love this . Def. following!




Bonnie said...

I love your outfit and your blog!! I am all about affordable clothing but with the occasional splurge. =P

lovely look the teal is the perfect touch!

Terri said...

I'm a huge fan of button front shirts year round. I recently cleaned my closet and did an inventory. I had over 40 long-sleeved and 14 short sleeved!

christine said...

This definitely is a great warm weather look. I wish I could wear some of my button down/blouses but I'm not in AC the whole day sometimes.....I look forward to more button down weather in the upcoming weeks :)

Such a fun summer look - and I'm sure your challenge of wearing it with everything in your closet can be met!

atouchoflovely said...

these colors are so fab together! great job on the skirt!

also- those studded bracelets? killer!

Alex Elizabeth said...

This seriously is the best white shirt ever. I'd wear it with every bottom (and maybe dress) I had, too. I love that you sprinkled turquoise throughout this outfit. Turquoise and pink is so summery!

Lorena said...

The white button down.... it works with everything.
I am drawn to white button downs, I was looking for one to wear a few weeks back and realized that i have almost 15 of them. Half of them are tight.

Shawna said...

It is sad but I still haven't been able to find a reasonable button down top yet. i a jealous, it looks great.


Mrs. J said...

I just fell in love with your color combination pink with hints of turquoise. Simply beautiful!! Lovey blouse as well I usually for for dresses as my summer staple! :)
