The Button Down Returns
It has been quite a long while since I've worn a button down blouse. Until a few years ago I never even wore them at all. Then I discovered I liked using them as a layering piece or on their own...generally untucked. As I hadn't pulled one (of my many) out of my closet in a while I was wondering if I was over them. Another blog photo spurred me to layer one again with a cardigan and so I came up with this outfit. It felt nice to wear the button down again, I liked the look, and have realized I'm definitely not over them at all.
This particular blouse is a nice shade of yellow...which I don't wear a whole lot of. I can't believe it only cost 99 cents! I love this newish scarf and thought it worked well to complete the look. In a bit warmer weather I could wear the same outfit, but with a necklace to replace the scarf and a different pair of shoes to replace the ankle boots.
