Grey Beach

Shirt: H&M, Pants: Jolt (purchased at Nordstrom Rack), Belt: H&M, Shoes: Lia Bi Jou (purchased at Nordstrom years ago)

I've grown to really enjoy and appreciate the button-down shirt. It is definitely a wardrobe staple. As a tall girl with long arms and a long torso, I always had the hardest time finding a button-down shirt that fit right. It seems that major retailers finally understand this dilemma and no longer aim to make the perfect fit shirt for one body type. Instead, styles have become a bit more flowy with sleeves that roll up to the elbow...a much more flattering option for these long arms than the awkward mid-wrist length I used to battle with. 

*This shirt is actually one of my few new clothing items this year. I purchased it with some store credit I received for my birthday, which was last week.

I love the simplicity of this outfit. And the colors are fabulous! I have a problem finding button-down shirts as well. My problem, however, is finding ones that go over my chest :(

Love the combination of colours in this outfit. I would never think to put the grey with the dusky pinky peach but it works so well!!! Super cute outfit.

I agree, great colour combination you've got going on there! And I can totally relate to having trouble finding shirts that fit as I am also tall with long arms/legs...finding pants that are long enough are also a big issue!
