A Repurposed Button-Down & Walk in the Park

Head to Toe: Top and button-down, thrifted // Jeans, 3x1 (via Buffalo Exchange) // Bag, Joules // Booties, Musse & Cloud // Shades, Vera Wang // Earrings, Nina

Did you hear that? I'm talking about the collective sigh of relief among New Yorkers now that spring has actually sprung. I've been spending my lunch breaks in the park to get a little sun, and Daniela joined me yesterday to take a walk and snap some pics.

Since I'm moving in (eek!) exactly 10 days, shopping is out of the question, so I've been repurposing old things as much as possible. Why not turn a basic button-down into a tube top? I just put it on without putting my arms through the sleeves, folded the collar underneath in the back, tied the sleeves at my waist and secured with a little sticky tape at the chest. Even though Sean's response was, "why," I'll definitely be redoing this in the summer without a shirt underneath. Have a lovely holiday weekend, fashionistas!
