|Hats off to you:)|
D had to work this past Sunday so we didn't get to have our Sunday to ourselves:( I decided to take the car do to some...you guessed it...errands (story of my life.)! However, because we live in Bergen County and it still has really outdated Blue Laws, it is really hard to do anything near where we live. I had to drive a bit, and since I am not so familiar with many of the surrounding counties, I got a bit lost.
For this outfit, I was inspired by the button-downs and slacks D wears every Shabbos for synagogue and our meals with friends. This shirt is another item that every woman should have in her fashion arsenal: a simple white cotton button-down. A white button-down is so versatile - from layering under sweaters when the weather is cooler, to providing a blank canvas for some awesome accessories in the warmer weather! I paired the shirt with a black flowy skirt that has some interesting eyelet embroidery detailing (yes, it's the same skirt from yesterday's post - only in black!) Again, I put a wide woven leather belt over where the shirt tucks into the skirt. It keeps the outfit look neat, polished and put together. In going with the menswear theme, I wore my oxfords (one of my best transition-to-fall purchases). The hat also goes with the theme. This cap is a more structured, feminized version of a newsie cap. I am loving this hat! The necklace is a piece I thrifted years ago and is definitely a go-to necklace when I have a blank canvas outfit. I am not sure what it is made out of, but it's a great conversation piece none-the-less.
White Button-down: Gap
Shoes: Steve Madden
What do you think about women wearing "menswear"??
