White Flares and Menswear

I'm back!  My computer is up and running and I couldn't be HAPPIER!  I really thought I was going to have to buy a new one, but lucky I was able to get my baby running again.  Although, I have to admit my computer is four years old, so I will probably be upgrading it soon.  In the mean time I made sure to back up all of my work, so I'll be ready if anything like this happens again.  Thank you everyone for your kind words, and being patient while I fixed the problem.

Now about this look.  Sometimes when I don't want to wear anything from my closet, I venture over to my husband's.  What a lot of people may not know, is that Mike loves clothes as much as I do, and he has the closet to show it.  My favorite things to borrow are his button down shirts, and luckily for me his shirt collection is pretty on point.  I find pairing an large button down with jeans to be such an easy and chic outfit, and although I mostly pair his shirts with my skinny jeans, I decided this time to try one knotted with flares.  To add a little Parisian flare, I finished the look with a vintage scarf .  However, since it was 90 degrees with humidity that made my hair curl the second I stepped outside,  I transferred the scarf to accessorize my bag instead.  Perhaps a better look for the cooler days ahead.
