Today’s prompt was to wear something I hadn’t worn in five months. When sifting through my closet I found this linen shirt. I thrifted it at the end of the summer, but by the time I had it aired out and read to wear the temperature had dropped.

Boxy blouses—and button-down blouses in general—have become a staple in my closet the last two years. As I mentioned in my last post, it is a surprising change considering how long I struggled to find pieces that fit. In modern to warmer seasons they are my comfy shirts and what I reach for when I need to look and feel good.

I decided to go for a completely neutral look, focusing on black and brown. What I’ve loved about using these prompts are the new options I find in my closet. I love these pants, but I had never styled them with a belt. Belts are on my list of future investment pieces, partly because I’ve discovered new ways to wear them recently.

The look is rather simple, but I think it all came together quite nicely.

What do you think?
