21 Day Challenge: Day 14

 Day 14

For this challenge, we were supposed to copy a style that we liked. We could find our inspiration in a magazine, a blog, Pinterest, just about anywhere! So, I'm not going to lie, I totally went on Pinterest, typed in white button down, and looked at my results. I actually found a lot of great ideas that I loved and repinned to use for later. {that Pinterest just never lets a girl down!}


I loved this look because it was so clean and simple and incorporated everything that I already owned {minus the trench because it's hot outside.}  I had just hit up Goodwill last week for scarves because I was feeling "scarvy" and didn't want to pay a ton for my new want so I was excited to wear one. I tried my scarf in many ways, but I finally went with this look, which I've NEVER done before. First, I don't tuck things in and second, I don't wear belts in my belt loops. But, this scarf just happened to be super long and thin so I tried and surprisingly I really liked it. So there you go, try something new and you'll surprise yourself!

Besides having the white button down and the scarf, this look also incorporates two other accessories that I wear everyday. My pearls and my Louis Vuitton purse I carry every day because it's monstrous and allows me to carry diapers, toys, burp cloths, etc. without having to carry a separate diaper bag.
A word on my purse. They're a great example of the cost per wear ratio at work. It's cheaper if you buy one great item that will last you then if you continually buy cheap and only use it a handful of times. I know, it's hard to grasp that concept since you'd have to dish out a lot of money up front, but if you know you're buying quality then I think it's a good route to take. {right here my Mother is shaking her head and telling me that I'm crazy for advocating for purses that cost more than $15.00...Hi Mom!}

Anyway....here's my look.

Have a great Sunday!

That's a really cute outfit! Definitely very functional. I haven't bought an investment piece that required that much investment, but I totally agree with you!
