Summer Capsule Wardrobe: the sleeveless button down

For those of you just tuning in (welcome!), I have been trying to shed my overpacking ways & for my Summer travels, I challenged myself to stick to a minimalistic "capsule" wardrobe. See what I packed in my Summer capsule wardrobe (10 foundation pieces that fit in a carry on!) & check out all of the Summer capsule wardrobe outfits here. Today I am focusing on a trendy piece that I wanted to experiment with on vacation: the sleeveless button down.

How to remix a sleeveless button down
I had seen this type of sleeveless button down shirt popping up a lot at super hip places like Madewell (exhibit A), so I was thankful when I spotted this similar style at Old Navy for a price that fit well within my budget (low risk is my motto!).

For a person on the more petite side (5'3" here), I liked it just ok when it was worn long - it kind of become a tunic dress with jeans, which is apparently in style right now, so I went with it. But I really fell in love when I tied the shirt up! The linen cotton fabric & classic stripes made it feel modern, but a retro twist!

Because I was trying to maximize the style bang I packed with minimum pieces, I really appreciated what a chameleon this shirt proved itself to be! Casual & comfy for day, but cute & playful for evening adventures!
