white button down: b&w

{ What I Wore: J.Crew white button down // Urban Outfitters blazer // Target leopard skinnies // ShoeDazzle silver pumps // vintage clutch // Nars "Heat Wave" lipstick }

{ Get the Look }
white button down {$39.50} + black blazer {$49, exact} + leopard skinnies {exact pair, on sale for $8!!| + silver pumps {$23.97, exact} + red lippy {$26.00, exact} + silver clutch {$16.99}
White button-downs are not only for corporate meetings - in fact, they can be totally transformed for date night outings.... the perfect blank slate in your closet!
I like to loosen up a few buttons & pair this basic with a sleek blazer, printed skinnies & pumps that POP! (boy approved too!)
Mini moment caught in the action of my self-timer, checking a message from my man!
Have you rocked your white button-down for a night out?
How do you take this wardrobe staple from work to play?

Today I am linking up with MarionBerry Style for her Trend of the Month Challenge: Black & White. See the other fab b&w looks here.

  1. What a great outfit! I have been wanting a pair of heels like that but think they will be too bold for my office and I don't wear heels on the weekends.

  6. Hello Jessica, I'm a new follower here, nice to meet you! I love your outfit and the unexpected turn you gave it with the leopard print trousers. Actually I only wear white shirts at work: I like to wear them under sheathe dresses or asymmetric sweaters. Hope you'll get the chance to stop by some time!
    love Coco

  35. Yes - you will definitely be needed a couple for your "professional" med school outfits! I like this one from J.Crew Factory because it actually stays tucked - with just the right about of "stretch" http://bit.ly/15zmhr2
