Colorblock Shirt

Photos by Deeana Kourtney Photography 

Polo Ralph Lauren outlet button down (not online, similar here, here, and here) | Eyelet skirt c/o via ThredUp (very similar here and here) | Jack Rogers Navajo sandals | Stella and Dot Parker sunglasses c/o | Kendra Scott Elle earrings | Similar pearl necklace | Similar Kate Spade bag

I found this fun colorblock button down while Annaliese of Southern Belle in Training and I were shopping at the outlets in Blowing Rock a few weeks ago.  After seeing shirts like this in men's sizes from places like Brooks Brothers and Vineyard Vines, I've been looking for a women's version for quite a while. I found this one, that I like to call my "frat shirt" for only $40 at the Polo Ralph Lauren outlet, and I just love it. I have several similar shirts in the solid color version, and I wear them to work quite often. And I have had those since high school, making some of them 5 or 6 years old, so I know I'll be wearing this one for a long time!

You may notice that this set of photos looks a little different than my usual outfit post. I went to visit Annaliese a few weeks ago, and she has been working with Deeana Kourtney Photography on her blog recently. Annaliese had to re-schedule her shoot with Deeana that week, which worked out for when I was coming to stay with her, so we shot some outfits together. It was so much fun, and Deeana is so talented! If you're in the Charlotte area, she does events, weddings, senior photos, engagement photos, family photos, and events!

Thanks for reading!

  4. This is such a cute look! I came across the shorts version of that shirt a couple summers ago and low key kicking myself in the butt for not picking them up. Also, how fun are these photos of you and Annaliese? So cute!
