The whole time I was wearing this outfit, I wished I had worn white jeans instead. I think the green and navy would have really popped against the white! But it was still kind of rainy, and I have a horror of getting my white jeans dirty.
Merona navy short-sleeve buttondown (previously loved by E.I.)
green sweater, Old Navy
enamel necklace, eBay
I wore this with the collar buttoned, and was surprised that it wasn't uncomfortable -- I always thought it would be. I added the necklace because I kind of remembered that Elaine of Clothed Much had dressed up a buttondown with a necklace and it looked fantastic. I looked up the post after I wore this outfit and realized, oops -- she recommends belting a sweater/cardigan to avoid a manly look! Just call me sir, I suppose ...
