While I might not technically own an OCBD (oxford cloth button down), I am obsessed with button downs in any variety. I scour the thrift stores and little boys departments looking for the perfect variations to add into my wardrobe. I love how classic that they make any outfit look. A button up with a full skirt is so quintessentially retro and a look I replicate quite often. For guys, it's a quick and simple solution to add a little bit of polish to an otherwise casual look.

This outfit made me want to traipse around in a quaint downtown, stopping in to sample treats at bakeries and cafes while out running my errands. We don't quite have anything like that in Maryville, but I loved the way the outfit looked against one of my favorite chipped white walls in the city. I started off wearing my long tulle skirt from Modcloth and oxfords, but the warmer weather beckoned me to show a bit more leg than I usually do. My nude wedges are absolutely perfect for lengthened my legs. While this is a pretty simple outfit, I felt cute and a bit sassy all day.

Once again, Patrick tends to go a bit more preppy when we are styling the basics. I thought the color combination here was spot on for the coming months. That green color just keeps sneaking out of our closets and making reappearances. And just as a note, the film camera isn't just a prop- when you see it in my photos, we've taken pictures on film that day!
Both of us really heavily on button up shirts. This basic blue color gets a lot of rotation in our outfits, so I'm happy to show you guys how we've both been styling it lately. I hope you've enjoyed this round of His & Hers and be sure to tune in next week for a couple of special posts with me and my beau!
