“New York is strange in the summer. Life goes on as usual but it’s not, it’s like everyone is just pretending, as if everyone has been cast as the star in a movie about their life, so they’re one step removed from it. And then in September it all gets normal again.” -Peter Cameron
I found myself shopping in the Kids' section of Target over the summer more times than I would care to admit. I found adorable plaids, vests and even a polka chambray. I fell in love with the colors in this plaid shirt and couldn't wait to pair it with my favorite ripped jeans.
Since it was summer I paired it with a bright statement necklace and a floral foldover clutch. A neon yellow belt helped to make the whole outfit summery and bright.
This week I've teamed up with my fabulous friend Ashley from Twenties Girl Style to show you some ways to take a casual summer piece more work-friendly.
It's amazing how such a casual shirt can look clean and polished paired with the right pieces.
