Gettin’ down with the button down

I’ve loved the reinvention and evolution of the classic button-down trend over the last five or so years. (Ah yes, suspend disbelief with me and let’s pretend for a time that I’m truly an expert in the broad field of Fashion, dear reader. Am I fooling anyone? And now collectively, let’s L-O-L, because we all really know I’m just a girl who likes buying clothes and talking about them with you. Just a friendly reminder that the only credentials I have were self-endowed given years of retail styling and a slight bent toward shopaholicism.)

Truly, though, from basic button-up work blouses, to shirt dresses, to skirts, to rompers, classic button-up styles have really evolved, and this summer, are trending hard. (By June of 2018, I’m sure the news that front buttons are in is not surprising.)

What is surprising? Let’s be honest, probably nothing about this post. I just found a dang great, on-trend, comfy as all get out skirt that I’d love for all my friends to know about.

It caught my eye pretty immediately because the front snaps are the exact shade of some of my most commonly adorned, brushed-gold jewelry, and I felt it would make a great summer staple-with-a-twist. Given my height and build, as much as  I love them, full top to bottom seam front-buttons can be precariously PG-13 if the buttons aren’t placed strategically. I’ve had quite a few dressing room nopes due to wide gapping, and was elated that this was a resounding fitting room YEP.

Front buttons/snaps, midi-length, fully lined, tie waist, soft/non-cripsy fabric: an ultimate 3-trends-with-1-stone skirt. You know the kind. (Oh? You don’t? Maybe give this a shot if you fancy a midi.)

Happy Sunday, and happy styling, friends. (PSA, as of today June 24, it’s also 40% off!)
