this shirt again. I know.

Saturday, September 29

   At this point, I'm sure you're about to disown me as a fashion blogger, because I present to you yet ANOTHER look with a stripey button-down. 
top- thrifted Ralph Lauren, cargos- A&F c/o Carina, flats- J.Crew c/o Carina
     The main drive of this outfit was the cargo pants, another circa 10th grade piece I stole from my sister (or rather, she gave to me, because I ripped a hole in the butt while jumping on a trampoline). My question? Are they still relevant as pants? Cargo pants are trendy right? But how are you actually supposed to wear them? Brynn suggested a button-down, which brings us to Friday's outfit. 
   Maybe I should make this a signature of my blog or do a "3 Ways To Wear This" feature. Scratch that, I've worn my two stripey button-ups way more than 3 times already. I could title this feature "The Piece You Can Do All Of Your Outfit Posts With, At The Fear Of Losing Credibility As A Fashion Blogger." Catchy?
    I think these shoes are awesome, but also rarely wear them because they also stump me. I chose them Friday as I was running out the door...they turned out to be pretty handy because it was rainy (as evidenced by puddly splotches on the ground).
   As I'm sure you've noticed by now (as I am emphasizing my tied-up shirt in nearly EVERY picture) I tied up my shirt! The scandal! Otherwise this beauty is just too long. I've only ever tied a shirt over a dress before, so this was new for me. It wasn't really that comfortable but I'll pretend it was for the sake of this outfit.

My jaunt at my old desk job, although lofty the aspirations, has primarily resulted in this blog post. 
And clean laundry. 
And a 1000th tweet.

I have a pair of old cargo pants in my closet that I never seem to wear because I dont know how! I actually LIKE how it looks with the button down shirt, so thanks for the inspiration. And hey, if the button down shirt works, why not wear it to death right? If it isn't broken, dont fix it, right? :)
