Beach Stripes

Fashion Staple Used: Chambray Shirt
I love bringing a lightweight button-down to the beach. You can wear it as a coverup over a bikini. And then tie it over a dress when the sun starts to set. I did just that this past weekend for a fun day in Venice with friends. One of my favorite parts of the outfit was my new charm necklace from Stella & Dot: I got a paw (for Bunny), an Aquamarine stone for my birth month, a Pisces symbol (I’m so obviously a water sign) and an infinity sign for forever style.

Levi’s Skimmer shirt, Forever 21 bodycon dress, Charm Necklace and Luna Wrap Bracelet c/o Stella & Dot, Botkier bag, Michael Stars sunglasses, Mackenzie bikini c/o Adore Me, Steve Madden sandals

    Hey Sydne,

    Quick question for ya. Do you typically go up a size when you wear button down shirts? (like this one for example, or your J Crew fav). Are they supposed to fit a little on the baggier side?

      Great question Hudsyn. I personally like them fitted, so I always order true to size. But I also have a smaller chest. If you’re a C or above, I’d recommend going one size larger so you don’t have to worry about your shirt gaping between the buttons.
