Fashion Therapy - One Shirt 7 Ways

 Happy Fourth of July and hello midsummer night dreams!

I'm starting to think more about different ways to wear every item in my closet.

I'm calling these looks "cruise" and "classic."
This is just for fun and much inspired by Chictopia, Lucky mag, and other bloggers like Le Quaintrelle. Just in time for July 4th, I picked the ubiquitous white button down shirt for my first "style it up" type post.

( outfit one: shorts - f21 via crossroads | belt - thrifted | shoes - ross )

I love the basic white button down shirt: it's crisp, clean (hopefully), and timeless, with endless potential.
Mine is an oversized New York & Co. blouse. I wore it with shorts to run errands yesterday, then pulled on some jeans & Vans for an evening walk at the dog park with Oreo. It's been a beautiful day, and I'm looking forward to getting off work early today!

( outfit two: jeans - element, via crossroads | shoes - van's )

 Here are more ways to style a white button-down shirt:

and, all glammed up:


  1. I love the white blouse tucked into the pinstriped green shorts. So cute and summery. Remember how I told you you resemble Baby from Dirty Dancing? Well now you REALLY do in that second outfit:

  3. White shirts like that are my absolute FAVOURITE. They are sooo versatile and can do anything in the world. They probably save lives too.. well, at least "bad-outfit" days.

    Nifty looks you've created!!!
