I'm super excited to be linking up with Franziska and Whitney this week for
These two are a couple of my favorite style bloggers because they have such a similar sense of style, shop on a budget, and are about the same age. (And, even better, Whitney is also a teacher!)
Today's theme was tops... Since I don't have a very good way to take outfit photos, I've decided to go the Polyvore route, but I tried to use mostly items that I actually own (or very similar).
I decided to go with my J.Crew colorblock tee for today for several reasons... I love this shirt and own a few variations of it. Plus, I feel like if you don't have this one yourself there are a lot of "knock offs" of it popping up in stores all over now. I missed out on getting it at the retail J.Crew store last year, so I was quick to snatch it up when I arrived at the J.Crew Factory a couple months ago.
This shirt is super versatile, which is why I wanted it so much. I saw a lot of cute styling ideas online and knew it would get a lot of good use! My 5 ways include 2 dressier options, 1 in the middle, and 2 casual ideas. (I've also paired mine with my black blazer and denim jacket for additional layering.)
