Today's Everyday Fashion: The Camp Shirt


I bought this cotton camp shirt in the day-after-Christmas sales two years ago and it has been a great addition to my closet ever since. It goes with just about anything (ex: distressed denim and sandals for a casual look) and camp shirts are definitely one of my biggest staples. A couple years ago I only wore them to work, but now I wear them constantly with shorts and skinny jeans on weekends, too. Do you ever wear button downs casually?

    Gorgeous outfit. I love the pops of teal, and they go surprisingly well with the fall palette!

  3. Definitely! I think they're button downs are such a great way to wear a casual look while still looking completely classy and put together.

  4. I haven't been able to find too many that fit correctly in the bust area so I'm looking for the perfect shirt to come along some day!

  5. I think a camp shirt makes everything look polished and put together without trying too hard. I also love that you can dress it up or down and either way you look very chic! I have recently added a couple more camp shirts to my closet and am now on the hunt for some good oxford shirts! You look amazing as always!

  7. Someday.  I have always had the issue with button pulling over the bust so I usually stay away from button downs (I don't want to alter every blouse I buy) I would have to get two sizes too big and then alter it back down.  Maybe if I found something I really loved...My bust is one of my big fashion issues. Maybe come spring!

  9. Does jcrew sell that shirt in your inspiration photo?  Also, can you show us outfits with leggings?  I just bought a few and have no inspiration with how to wear them.

  10. Allyson, yep that shirt is J.Crew. I think I saved this photo a long time ago, can't remember for sure!! I've done two outfits with legging so far - they are both under Table of Contents -> Europe Posts because I wore them on the plane ride! :-)

  11. I love to wear button downs for a casual look. I think it helps make a weekend look too sloppy. I also lve them for layering during fall/winter under sweater, cardigans and blazers. It can be a little tough to find the right fit (I'm a busty girl), but love a great button up

  19. I wear button downs with jeans and shorts sometimes. A good chambray shirt looks great dressed down.

  20. Love your look and the colour pairing.  I totally subscribe to the idea of mixing silky button down blouses with jeans like here: http://coverupchic.blogspot.ca/2012/09/summer-attire-labour-day-white.html and here:
    http://coverupchic.blogspot.ca/2012/09/fall-suiting-blush-and-olive.htmlIt is by far the most worn look for me outside of work.  I love how it adds an air of sophistication and feminine flare to a casual outfit.  coverupchic.blogspot.ca

  23. So that's what that shirt style is called-- haha thank you!
    Love wearing THE CAMP SHIRT casually. I think it's such a glam sophisticated look. I like how you tucked it in- I never think to do that.

  26. Wow, if that's a camp shirt then I would most definitely want one. It's pretty sexy! I can just imagine how many other things that I can pair up with it.
