I'm pretty sure every girl has struggled with finding the perfect white button down shirt.  If you are a tall girl like me who struggles to find shirts that will cover up your backside, this one is just perfect. So perfect that I actually bought it at full price. I almost never do that. It was one of those thing you put on and know that it's exactly what you were looking for. When it finally went on sale (I actually returned the first one) I ordered two, just to have a back-up in case this one ever got spilled on, dingy or ruined, which are all bound to happen sooner or later with a white shirt.

And while we're at it, these Valentino knock-off flats are super comfortable, super high quality and come in a bunch of different colors! Both this shirt and flats pair so effortlessly and make for a chic yet simple combo.

By the way, The pictures this week are all taken with my new camera lens that was bough after a tragic in home accident. Oops!

 Can you tell the difference? Is the quality better? Hope you like it.

Have a great weekend!

What can I say, black and white combinations will always be my favorite easy go-to, especially when a pop of hot pink is mixed in. This ASOS scuba dress is so comfortable and on sale for under $30 right now! And for all you Bachelor fans out there, this hot pink lipstick is the same shade Kaytlin wore all season. I loved how it looked on camera so naturally I had to pick some up for myself. which leads me to the fact that I own about a million different shades of hot pink lipstick. Oops.

Sometimes you walk into a store and find exactly what you were NOT looking for. An item speaks to you, and what it says is "game over, I'm coming home with you."

This is exactly what happened with these sun glasses. It took me about a half second to realize they needed to be mine. I found them in the Bloomingdales outlet on a shopping field trip to the Chicago Fashion Outlets with Sam and Shaheen. They were even having a sale where the whole store was buy one item, get the second half off. I left with Prada sunglasses and Coach loafers for under $200!!

I had been dreaming of wearing this combination just as soon as the weather became more spring-like. So naturally on the first day I felt naked legs was acceptable, I threw this on. And just so you know, this look was absolutely ruined Immediately after this shoot on a hot yoga (where blowouts go to die) date with my boo Lauren. She even took an after picture to prove what disarray I was in. Blogging ain't always pretty everyone.
