Outfit of the Day: How To Button Up.

Before I get started with another underwhelming outfit, I just want to thank you all for your comments yesterday! I love that you all are invested in my non-wedding dress and will keep you posted. (The Shoshanna is definitely a front-runner.)  Now, I have another thrifting find, an item that everyone else in the world seems to wear without issue but I struggle with:



THE SILK BUTTON UP. So lovely! So sleek! So f'ing gape-y. This particular beautiful silk blouse is by Equipment and I love everything about it except that it's a button up because I hate the boob gape. I do have dress tape (magical stuff as long as you remember to remove it before washing) but for a blouse this nice, I wish they'd design it to fit actual human bodies. I'm just holding real still in these photos. 


Here I am fully tucking it in because I"m not sure I'm pulling off that half-tuck. Also, I'm going to stop complaining because I paid $7 for this blouse. If you want something similarly fancy, this is a gorgeous green Equipment blouse. For something similar but much less expensive, you know I'm going to recommend this Quince blouse and of course there's Everlane. For a non-silk option, I love this one at J.Crew


I'm wearing a pair of Madewell Perfect Vintage jeans in a good black wash from a few years ago. The current version in Lunar wash is probably the most similar! I'm also wearing my new M.Gemi Greta Clogs even though it's still too hot for them. They just looked so perfect with this, I couldn't resist. For something similar, this pair by Dolce Vita look very promising and of course, Madewell has a beautiful pair. Details:


I just piled on a bunch of Gorjana necklaces - my Parker wrap, Compass Coin and my herringbone chain. I am getting the most I can out of this layering trend! 


My little quilted Marc Jacobs Single bag is still one of my favorite Poshmark steals of all time. It's just a perfect, classic thing and, honestly, I'm just never going to spend the cash on a Chanel bag. For something similar, you have so many options! I always recommend Rebecca Minkoff for a quality, fashionable quilted bag but there is also this affordable option at TJ Maxx or have some fun and get a crazy Kurt Geiger bag

That's it for today! TL;DR working title: Blogger Confounded By Button Up Shirt.

  1. First, congrats. Your ring is beautiful. Also, when it comes to clogs (those Greta's are talking to me!) I would like to apply the n+1 to clog purchases. Cheers!

  4. Your ring is lovely and classic yet modern. It is all good things. I feel I should enable you by telling you that Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn has a variety of clog and clog adjacent new styles for the fall. Have fun looking!

  5. Silk shirt boob gap - I have the drycleaner sew a tiny snap in where it gaps. Done and done.

  6. Another fan of your ring, it’s gorgeous! Also, how do you find M.Gemi sizing to run, versus typical Euro sizing?

    1. Thanks! I find M.Gemi to run true to size. They recommend sizing down half a size but my size 38 clogs *just* fit my size 8 feet and I think a 38.5 would be better.

  7. The RING!!! Love it. As for button up shirt gaps, my only hack is I just do not wear button up shirts. Ever. I am not exactly chesty either but they ALL gap for me, so I quit. Also, I can no longer comment using my Blogger account which is super annoying.
