As December wound quietly to a close the weather turned warm and golden during the week between Christmas and the New Year. I wore this for work on one of my half days, even though the office was more casual than usual, I opted for something a little more dressed up. I can’t help myself, especially around the holidays.
I recently bought this white button down from H&M and have worn it constantly since then. It is the perfect staple blouse, made of sheer, crisp white cotton and plenty of length to tuck it in but not bulky at the shoulders. The slight overlap of the collar is my favorite feature, I’m not even sure that is supposed to happen, but I love that it resembles origami at my throat.
Paired with basic black felt a little too much like a uniform, but with red-brown oxfords and an autumnal green cardigan with gold button detail it was just right for the transition from the office to afternoon shopping in SoHo.
