What I Wore: Buttoned up

I finally got the memo...
Over sized button ups are more comfortable than sweatshirts.
For real!!!

I have never been a huge fan of button ups. I don't know why but they seemed to be too preppy for me. But since I bought the two plaid shirts and my over sized white button ups from Old Navy I cannot stop wearing (or buying) them. 

Do you wear button ups? Am I way behind on realizing their amazingness??

This outfit is from last week (I am officially out of outfit pics. I need to take some the next few days or my blog will be BORING). I found this blue color (hard to tell in the pics BUT it is NOT chambray OR light blue. It is more cornflower blue) after obsessing over a pic of Ashley Olsen in the same color. I loved pairing this shade of blue with my tomato red Missoni jellies. These shoes are SO comfy. I love designer sales :) One thing that I always try to do when wearing such a masculine piece is wear something really girly. The bows on my shoes weren't enough to bring out the girliness in the outfit. I added a neutral bib necklace that really made the outfit pop. I loved this combo. Pretty, girly and so comfortable!

  1. Cute look. I am not a huge fan of buttoned ups because of fit issues, but I think I need to try them again because they look so chic on you.
