And in today's episode of "Clothes I've Swapped That I Love", presenting, this button-up! Katy is on my short list of "people I work with that I'm not friends with but I wish I were" and has this really cool, effortless-bordering-outdoorsy style. Naturally I jumped at the chance to steal one of her button-ups, with no repercussions, at our recent office clothing swap.
I've already worn this button-up several times, and find myself wanting to pair it with everything: denim shorts, a floral skirt, there's nothing it can't do!
This outfit was completely inspired by this pin, by the incomparable Sydney (she may or may not have had a cameo in my dream last night :| the blogging is really getting to me, guys!) As soon as I got this button-up, I knew I had to do it! Honestly, it may be the exact same one. Anyway, how'd I do?
I have an entire pinboard of "Outfits To Try!", that I'm determined to build out of my own closet. Something about my recent re-declaration of style strategy has given me new vigor to actually put those pretty pins to work. If you have a similar thing going on Pinterest (or otherwise), share it with me! All the outfits I accomplish re-creating then go on the "A Pin For The Win" board, check that out too!
As you're reading this, I'm knee-deep in hosting my twin brothers for the weekend. I'm totally thrilled that they're here! We're making the most of the few days by going to Nashville's free music festival every night (tonight: Passion Pit!), checking off my last few Summer goals (#selfmotivated), and of course, plenty of Nashville eats.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend! And if not, it was only a four-day work week, so we didn't do much to earn it anyway!
