Perfect Oversized White Button-Up

J Brand “Maria” skinny jeans (on sale!)
Céline “Phantom Cabas”bicolor tote
Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses (on sale!)

The lifelong (cue melodrama) search for the perfect oversized white button-up shirt is finally over. I own a couple white button-ups for different occasions: one in classic silk and one tailored for work, but I wanted a slouchy, boyfriend-fit one for casual, everyday wear. I love this Madewell one because the cotton is thick and not see through, the length is long enough, and the side-buttons are a unique touch! You can bet I’ll be overwearing this shirt…

    This outfit is so classic but it's such a nice twist on the classic black/white look! You are right–that is the perfect oversized white button up! I need to get my hands on one! Love your sandals too 🙂

    Love! I feel like I've been hunting for the perfect white shirt for forever too and have yet to find the perfect one. This one is amazing and I love the buttons on the side, I definitely need to check out Madewell. Plus I love your Vince slides, it's a nice touch.

    I have had an obsession with buying blouses lately. I don't know what it is, but there is something about a plain blouse and skinny jeans with flats that I love. It's so timeless and chic, and you feel great while wearing it! And you look gorgeous, my dear!
