Three ways to style a white button up

One Item, Three Ways – Style it Saturday

Welcome back to another edition of Style it Saturdays!

This week I am showing three examples of how you can take one piece of clothing and style it three ways. It’s a great way to stretch your clothing budget and get the most out of one classic piece. As always, if you want to find these exact pieces, you can click the photos to be taken to the commissionable links.

First, I want to show you three ways that you can style a classic houndstooth blazer. As you can see below, this coordinates well over a dress, a skirt (or dress slacks), and even a casual pair of jeans. Sometimes we can overthink when it would be an appropriate time to wear a blazer. However, if you think of it as just a jacket or outerwear, you can wear it almost anytime you’d wear a regular jacket.

Next, I am sharing three suggestions on how to style a white button-up shirt. This particular shirt is a little oversized, but you could certainly wear a more fitted white shirt in these same ways.

Lastly, this week I am sharing three ways to style a fun, autumn piece – a vest. Vests are great for fall, when temperatures fluctuate wildly during the day. They’re an easy way to keep comfortable by adding or removing layers quickly. I’m showing a vest in a rich autumn color, but any neutrally colored vest is a great addition to your wardrobe.

Style it Saturday, October 16, 2021

Welcome back to another edition of Style it Saturday, where I share a round-up of outfits from the week before. Today I am changing things up a little bit and sharing pictures of me wearing the outfits, so that you can see what they look like on. Let me know in the comments which way you prefer to see my outfits. As always, you can click any photo to be taken to the commissionable links to find those exact pieces.

You may recognize this shirt and bag from a previous Style it Saturday post! Here I am wearing it with some cute boots and pumpkin colored pants. The shirt is made by Ralph Lauren, and costs a little bit more than other denim shirts. But it’s very well made, and the attention to detail makes it worth the price. The sleeves are very feminine, and the mother-of-pearl snaps have a faint RL logo. This is not your run of the mill boxy shirt. *I recommend going up one size in the shirt.* My bag is made of woven wool, and comes in multiple colors and patterns. The top of the bag zips closed, and it is perfect for carrying everything you need.

Here’s another outfit you may recognize from last week’s SIS post. I wanted to show you some different ways that you could style this dress. Either black or brown shoes look great with it, and sneakers would look great, too! On the right I added a leather belt that I thrifted. On the left I just added a basic jean jacket. This dress has pockets, and the bottom is lined. It’s under $50, and it’s super cute on!

Remember this outfit? The whole outfit is super affordable, and I love it! It’s a little hard to tell from the picture, but there is smocking and peplum waist on this shirt. Combined with the V-neck, it’s a very flattering and feminine look.

Yep, you’ll recognize this outfit from last week, too. Here’s what it looks like on! This vintage fit sweatshirt has slits – so cozy. I wear it with leggings, jeans, and even to sleep! I love it so much that I bought it in several colors.

Lastly for this week, here’s Sam wearing a cute outfit! It would also look cute with some suede knee boots and a jean jacket.

That’s all for this week! See you next time.

Style it Saturday – October 9, 2021

Welcome back to another edition of Style it Saturday, where I share a round up of outfits from the week before. This week I am sharing a mix of outfits for cooler fall temps, as well as some transitional outfits for areas still experiencing warmer temps…like mine! As always, you can click any of the photos featured to be taken directly to the commissionable links to find the exact pieces.

First up is an outfit that I think would be PERFECT for fall family pictures, Thanksgiving dinner, or any other fall event that calls for a gorgeous, timeless dress! I’m showing how simply changing the jacket choice will make this either casual or formal.

Just like the dress above, here I am wearing a shirt that shows how good brown and black can be together! This shirt is very affordable, and I found the tailoring of it to be very thoughtful and flattering. (Sometimes more affordable button up shirts can be “boxy” and unflattering, but not this one!) I am wearing the small. If you’re in between sizes, size down.

Okay, I just got these pieces in the mail yesterday, and I *love* this shirt! I can’t wait to share with you a picture of it on. It’s hard to tell here, but the neckline is v-neck, there is smocking under the bust line, and transitions to a peplum hem. Ladies, this creates a flattering waistline. No waist = not flattering. Even if you aren’t happy with what your waistline looks line, it is essential to create the illusion of one!

Below I wanted to show you how this olive green sweater can be an amazing neutral pieces in your fall wardrobe. Here are five different ways to style it! Dress it up, or dress it down, it’s a great pieces to layer with this fall.

I wanted to share this little black flutter dress with you! This is a 3 season piece – just add a jean jacket, sweater, or blazer to get the most wear out of it. I am wearing a size small, and could easily have gone up to a medium.

Okay, okay…so can you tell I’m a little obsessed with the brown/black combo this season? I am *in love* with this dress. It’s sophisticated, classy, and yet a little flirty if you ask me! As usual, I LOVE the attention to the seaming and tailoring. It makes all the difference in quality, well made pieces. (Notice around the shoulder and cuffs – to die for.)

Am I the only one completely over jeans with stretch?? Over.It. So I am on the quest for 100% cotton jeans to replace all my loosey-goosey ones with. Here’s what I’ve learned: when you purchase your normal size, you’re going to feel like they’re too small. But 100% cotton jeans mold to YOUR BODY. After wearing them in, your 100% cotton jeans will fit your body perfectly, even after washing. Here are some affordable pieces I found on Amazon. A couple of these are name brands, which you’ll find much more expensive elsewhere.

I admit it, I should’ve just titled this post “Brown and Black.” And ten years from now you’ll find me wearing the exact same pieces. Why? Because #1 They’re classic pieces that never go out of style. #2 They’re quality materials that don’t wear out.

That’s all for this week! See you next time!

Style it Saturday: September 25, 2021

Welcome back to Style it Saturday, where I share a recap of outfits from the week before. Fall officially began this past week, so today I have a few more fall inspired outfits to share with you. As always, to find these exact pieces you can click on any photo to be taken to the commissionable links on my LTK.

First up is this sharp look for work. By now you know that I love classic pieces that you can add to your wardrobe and will last for years. Everything pictured here falls into that category! This is a look that keeps up that polished, sophisticated style for the office.

Another look for this office! You may recognize both this skirt and the denim shirt, since I have shared each of them before separately. I wanted to show you how amazing they look TOGETHER! Ralph Lauren tops tend to run small, so I recommend that you order up one size. (I just exchanged my small for a medium, which I hope to show you soon!) Be sure to follow the link to this outfit, because I have also added some shoes and accessories that would go perfectly with it.

Here is a look that is definitely more casual than the two above. This vintage fit sweatshirt is SO GOOD that I ordered myself a second one. Layer a denim shirt underneath, add some distressed black denim, a cute hat, and comfy shoes…you’re ready to take on lunch, errands, or ball games. This sweatshirt comes in multiple colors, and I’ve also linked several hat options.

This week I am only sharing four outfits, so below is the last one. This one comes with a style tip! If you find a dress that is “mini” and you’re not comfortable with the length…see if you can order it in a “tall” version! That may solve the length problem for you!

If you want to save any of these looks or keep current with the new ones I post, be sure to follow my blog or find my Style it Saturdays board on Pinterest. (see below)

Style it Saturday – September 18, 2021

Welcome Back to Style it Saturday, where I share a round up of outfits from the week before. With the first official day of fall quickly approaching, I am sharing more outfits for cooler weather. As always, you can click any photo or highlighted caption to find my commissionable links for these exact pieces. Never miss an outfit by following me on LiketoKnow.it.

The first outfit I want to share with you is this cute dress. The tailored seaming on the top, along with the flouncy skirt on the bottom makes this flattering for women of all shapes. I’m layering it with a jean jacket and finishing it off with these fun boots and a hat.

You can find my commissionable links for these exact pieces by either clicking the photo above or HERE.

This next outfit can take you from the office and then out to dinner. Although it’s hard to see in this picture, there is a vertical seam on the front of the jean, which elongates the legs. The sheer sleeves with the ruffle are a detail that you won’t want to miss. And don’t miss the intertwined snake on the purse.

This next look is pretty much my fall go-to look. Jeans + button up + crewneck sweater. Add in a classic loafer and you’ve got an outfit that truly never goes out of style.

Here’s an outfit perfect for the pumpkin patch or apple picking! Shackets (shirt + jacket) are very on trend this year, and this one is more my style than others that I’ve seen. Since it is a solid denim material, you can wear it with more outfit combinations than a plaid one. (Which would also be cute, btw.) This fanny pack holds your phone, keys, and wallet – which frees up your hands to hold all of the pumpkins, apples, and PSLs.

Have an office holiday party or wedding coming up? This outfit is the one! This jewel-toned dress is flattering on all skin tones!

Here are the fall accessories I’m using! Sometimes all a basic outfit needs in order to be elevated is the perfect accessory.

Who knew that Amazon had high quality purses at amazing prices?! Am I the last person to get this secret memo? Some of these are hand-made and leather…what???

Finally, is anyone else LOVING the Yellowstone TV series? Ken and I love watching it together. Here are a few pieces inspired by the show!

Spring capsule wardrobe

Style It Saturdays, April 17, 2021

Hi! It’s time for Style it Saturdays, where I show you a round-up of outfits from the week before. As always, you can shop any of these looks through my commissionable links. Just click any of the photos, and you will be taken directly to the outfit on my LiketoKnow.it page.

First up I want to show you a spring capsule wardrobe. Just in case you aren’t familiar with what a capsule wardrobe is, it’s a wardrobe where you only use a few basic pieces for the entire season. Throughout the season you will mix and match them to create hundreds of possible outfits. Check out this one that I’ve created below. Layers are important in spring when daily temperatures can fluctuate drastically. These layers also make it possible to create quite a few different looks. Depending on which combinations you use, there are many dressy or casual styles that you can create with these pieces.

For this next look I have used classic black and white with a pop of color. A lot of businesses will allow their employees to wear denim as long as there are no rips. These white denim pants, combined with the black shirt, are great from going from work to dinner. It would also be a great date night look.

Memorial Day will be here in a few weeks, so I’m sharing an outfit that you can wear to your BBQ or picnic. This look can work for Fourth of July and casual weddings, too.

Today I am throwing in a look for the guys. Sometimes when it gets warm my husband and I want to go eat dinner on a restaurant patio. My husband want to look nice, but doesn’t want to spend the evening sweating. This is a great look that he’ll be wearing this summer.
