If you are going to invest in anything new in your wardrobe each season, it must be a new white button down shirt. I found one at Ann Taylor. This really is the perfect white shirt.
It’s semi fitted, with a great fabric that’s crisp — a blend of cotton, nylon and spandex. The collar will stay up and it’s fitted enough that you could wear it tucked in or out with a belt. You must own at least one fitted button down. It’s slimming and looks great on everyone. Plus, they have other colors — like the color “rose petal” which is really in this spring.
As my stylish friend Holley says, “when you add something new to your closet it must be clothing you can wear at least three different ways.” This white shirt will go with a pencil skirt, jeans, or under a spring sweater. Three. Bam.
If $69.50 is more than you want to spend on a shirt (remember it’s quality you are after), then wait. Ann Taylor runs great sales and you can catch a deal. That way you can purchase two, so you always have one that is clean.
Go forth, and be stylish.
Melissa means honey bee in Greek. When I find something that speaks bee, I pick it up. Every once in a while someone treats me to a bee bauble. Like yesterday, my Lolly and my Goddaughter Annie treated me to the pink bee confection on my wrist above (yikes, my skin looks old!).
It’s from Brighton’s newest collection My Flat in London.
Their catalog is darling with all kinds of things I love. Handbags, baubles, scarves. Here are a few images from their wallpaper you can save to your computer..
And this pretty much sums up the scene at breakfast with Cindy yesterday. I’m in black. Cindy got eaten by the Cheetah while I was getting her more hazelnut coffee. Nice handbags, by the way.
For the story on how my name came to bee…check out a vintage blog segment. Have a fab Friday, darling!
Here’s my summer time outfit I sported today…
Started with my new “M” initial earrings from Sister Bee. Love them!
Add polka dot shorts from Old Navy. I stocked up on
new shorts back at the first of spring when they
were on sale. Trying to keep jogging shorts for
exercise and not running errands.
Mix in a Vera Bradley paisley reversible belt.
I scored several of these a few years back on clearance.
I love them. Add a bright yellow Isaac Mizrahi t-shirt
from QVC…and Miss Bee’s toes.
Finish with my fun slip-on tennis shoes from
This spells a fun day.
