This may look like a normal outfit, but really this ensemble is all about my family. It all started when my bro left for college and left all his shirts. Like any good sister, I went shopping… in his closet! This men’s J. Crew button down is literally one of the most comfortable shirts I own. In the spring and summer it goes with almost every outfit. To make it a little more feminine for summer, I tied it up.
To keep a lightweight feel to look, I added three chain necklaces which are all meaningful. I have lived in many different parts of the USA, so my cousin got me this Pennsylvania chain, from Brooklyn Charm, so I’d never forget where I come from. The faith, hope, and love chain was my Granny’s, and the cross was from my parents. To celebrate an important day in my life, my mother got me the Prism Light ring by Moonstone Magic. You will rarely see me without it on. All together, they make the outfit so special.
Lastly, I paired this outfit with a cool pair of blue slacks from H&M and I added some neutral accents including a belt (featuring a cute belt knot to spice it up), bangles from New York & Co. and tan heels from Target (similar here). It’s a simple outfit with a lot of meaning.
