The longest job I ever had was with a very conservative company with a very strict dress code where casual Friday was unheard of. My go-to outfit was usually a long sleeved button down shirt with slacks or a long sleeved button down shirt with a skirt, you get the picture. So when I resigned, I had myself a closet full of button down shirts.
Now that I don't have to dress up as much, I'm trying to incorporate my business-y shirts with my more casual outfits. Here are some of the looks I've come up with.
The Obvious Choice
Shirt: Old Navy
Shorts: GreenhillsShoes: SM
I know, it's such an obvious choice but I like the casual vibe going on here. This is my take on the boyfriend shirt look, the kind of boyfriend who's into flowery prints.
A Stripey Affair
Shirt: my closet
Red tank top: my closet
Denim skirt: People are People
I like the stripe on stripe detail here.
Belt: my closet
Sandals: People are People
An all white ensemble reminds me of a cool breeze in the heat of summer. It looks so calm, collected and put together.
Any more ideas on how to dress down a button down?
