Okay, really, it could be button-down any day. But I agree with the writers over at ShopBop, that this is a great casual Spring look. Here’s what she writes:
In the summer, most of my Saturday afternoons are spent on a sunny coffee shop patio with a cup and a book. An oversized chambray button-down thrown on over a print skirt is just the kind of effortless style this laid-back activity deserves.
I, of course, would wear this to work, but hey, that’s what happens at Midwest start-ups.

Large prints seem to be a big trend for Spring. I’m especially loving the yellow and pink dress with those shoes! Ah, it’s always the shoes.

I just loved this photo and Sartorialist’s description:

Such swagger. Such intrigue.
This isn’t about fashion or even style but about creating an impact on the viewer.
A visual seduction.
I’m pretty sure that’s how we should decide to dress each day – with swagger, intrigue and seduction.
Elastic bands and yet totally mod. Loving these.

I’m particularly coveting the outfit in the middle.

“Fashion in some people’s eyes is very untouchable and super-indulgent,” he said. “For me, it’s just clothes to be worn. And at the end of the day, the point is to sell the product.”
