Feminine Take on a Classic Men’s Shirt

When I want to wear a pattern, one of of my favorites is stripes, so I’ve been in Stripes Heaven the last two years. They are everywhere! I love them paired with solids, but they’re also easy to match with other patterns (like the subtle one of my pants).

The shirt I’m wearing is a take on a man’s classic pinstripe button up. What makes it a little different is that it has a banded rather than pointed collar and, of course, it has a ruffle. How I love ruffles.

Mine is from last summer, but if you’re interested I found an exact match at Talbots–plus, it’s on sale. So darn cute!

P.S. If you like my strawberry-pink lip gloss, it’s actually two by Zuzu Luxe blended together. They’re all natural, vegan, and gluten free. See them swatched on my arm individually and together–at the bottom of this page.
