Everybody should own a white button down shirt. Whether man or woman. Whether slouchy or tailored. I prefer a slouchy version more so, than a tailored blouse. As I can half tuck it in and it look relaxed. But a tailored version will give you a nipped in, waist defining look.

And as you can see, this Particular shirt is plaid jacquard. Which means, the pattern is woven into the fabric. Instead of stitched on or painted on. If you can find white shirts that have a lil somethin’ somethin’ extra to them, you’re winning. Because texture gives your outfit a step up to be great!

Do you own a white button down?

J.crew vs Oldnavy (Men’s Edition)

You know I love doing store vs store posts… And I love putting stores back to back, showcasing a high vs low pricing. And in this case, it’s all about men’s clothing. It’s J.crew vs Oldnavy. Both places are awesome with their clothing, I love bringing clients to each store. I also love the preppy/relaxed feel each have with their clothes. And I just saw some resemblances to the garments, that I had to share. Whether you’re on an oldnavy budget or a j.crew budget, you’ll be in style, none the less! Let’s get to it!

J.crew will be on the left. Old Navy on the right.
