H&M White Button Down – $29.99

I am a preppy girl to the core – I love wine, clean shaven men, traditional home design, and I have a special place in my heart for a crisp white button down.

Style to me is wearing what you like and feel beautiful in. Living in LaLa Land the past 4 years has helped me embrace the lastest trends, while staying true to my preppy style. I believe that pairing classic pieces with the latest trends takes a look from trendy to chic.

I picked up this white button down at H&M a couple weeks ago and I have to say I am totally in love. The scoop neck and cap sleeves make this shirt a casual summer take on the classic button down. I can wear it untucked with leggings and a cropped leather jacket or tucked in with high waisted shorts and skirts.

While I am willing to pay more for classic pieces because they can stand the test of time, stores like H&M remind me that there is really no need to.
