button-down love.

merona dress   ·   chaps blazer {thrifted}
gap button-down {thrifted}   ·   dexter wedges

i haven't worn this dress very often, but i think about it often and was trying to come up with a different way to wear it aside from just with a cardigan layered over it since i wore a cardigan yesterday.  i like layering button-downs underneath just about everything and thought the printed collar peaking out underneath the dress worked, but something was just off... it needed one more layer!  enter the navy blazer (sorry it looks black; my tights are also navy).  since i love layering so much, i didn't mind the cuffs showing past the bracelet length sleeve of the blazer and of course you can never go wrong with a basic cognac colored shoe. 

here's a spread of different ways i like to layer button-downs:

short sleeves / a cardigan / a knit tee / 3/4 sleeves / a sleeveless dress

was wearing the same necklace in three of these five pictures, oops!}

how else do you think i can layer a button-down?
