c/o Potomac Mills: Loft Chambray Shirt // Nordstrom Rack Tank // Loft Outlet Skirt (not online) // Nordstrom Rack Heels (not online - by 14th & Union)
Growing up I was always the girl that could spend hours at the mall. Not always shopping, sometimes just browsing around and watching my Mimi and Great Grandmother, Num Num, pick things up, look at them, analyze it, and then put it back or add it to the large stack of things they were going to try on. I remember being amazed at how easily they could pick something out and know what to wear it with that they already owned at home. I think it was at that point that I learned to memorize my closet and learn to have a staple item that you can wear multiple ways.
One of my "go-to items" has always been a chambray shirt. I probably have 4 in my closet right now (well, 5 including this dark wash one) and they all get shown equal amounts of love. The dark wash of this shirt makes it perfect to get away with at work... not that I haven't before ;) When Potomac Mills approached me about their "Work the Shirt" challenge to help promote their accessories sale (until May 31!!!) I was instantly in. We're talking up to 70% off accessories throughout the whole mall.
Fun fact: Potomac Mills is Virginia's largest outlet mall. I grew up having a mall a couple of minutes from me so having a wide variety of stores and the amazing prices (hello Nordstrom Rack, Neiman's Last Call, Bloomingdales, Loft Outlet, Kate Spade, J.Crew, Express, Francesca's... okay, you get my point) close to DC makes my heart happy! The best part had to be how clean and uncrowded the mall is - it's like nobody knows how easy it is to shop there! No lines! All sizes! I found this entire outfit (minus my clutch) at Potomac Mills last Friday!
So let's talk about my outfit quickly shall we? Tie the shirt at the waist to give it a laid-back vibe and bring up the sophistication with easy, suede heels. Add in a bright yellow punch of color in a fun summery print and then add turquoise earrings to top it all off! Grown up enough for the office but still showing some spunk with color.
PS. I have another way to style this shirt (just in time for MDW) coming to Southern Anchors Thursday! Can't wait to see which style y'all like more :)
