The title of this post may seem to be a bit of a bold statement, but it is 100% how I feel about this top!  I love the look of a button down shirt, but sometimes they can be a bit stiff. I sit at a desk all day.  I want my clothes to be comfortable AND professional.  That’s what I love about this top.  The fabric is this comfy semi-sheer crepe like material which is soft and moves.  I also like that it has two buttons on the arm.  You can wear the sleeves long on cold days or roll them up to 3/4 or a little higher on warmer days.   I mean come on, it’s like the versatility king of work shirts!  It also comes in a wide array of colors and patterns, so I have a feeling I will be buying more.  I decided to start with the striped version, because it’s a classic print that works well both for work and play.  Outside of work, I love to pair button down tops with denim and riding boots to create a bit of dressed up look for a Saturday evening dinner or a Friday Happy Hour.  By the way, these tops are buy one get the second 50% off right now!  I definitely want to get this one and probably a solid one.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by the blog today!!
