Copycat

A few months ago when browsing through a J.Crew catalog, I dog-eared this adorable look to copycat for work one day. If you look closely, you can see the oxford is pinstriped and looked a little too Uncle Sam when trying it myself. With the different textures and accessories, it worked for the catalog look, but those particular pieces were not in my closet. It's no secret, I am all about Independence Day, but I wanted to tone it down just a bit.

So I swapped the top for a chambray button up and added a chunky necklace.
Here is my version of the look!
[Button up: Banana Republic, Necklace: Target, Bracelets: Assortment, Skirt: Forever 21, Shoes: Target]

  2. The necklace is so cute! I love chunky, long necklaces. They are fun and give chance to tie in any color with another part of the outfit. You look adorable!
