I start most days off with an Americano w/
Grand Abandon Vintage Cream Pleated Skirt
Grand Abandon Vintage Cream Scallop-Collared Blouse
Thrifted Black Ankle Lace-Up Boots
Grand Abandon Vintage Black Suede Handbag
Lots of bobby pins and nude-pink lipstick.
I’ve always been a collared shirt girl, but lately I’ve been liking the neck-hugging look of button-down collared shirts buttoned up all the way to the top. I think pairing these shirts with a high-waisted pleated skirt or tailored high-waisted ankle pant can add a girlish flare, cutting the androgyny of a collar and a button-down, especially one that is buttoned up all the way. I love the clean, modern effect of pairing monochromatic separates, and I think doing a different color shoe can give a really nice edge to this look. Plus, you can’t go wrong with a hard black and a soft cream. Finishing off the look with an asymmetrical ‘do helps the collar retain it’s youth instead of ushering it into grandma territory.
