On a recent visit with my mom, I ventured out in an ombre linen button-down shirt for a day of shopping. I was so proud that she successfully snapped these pictures! And yes, my head and feet made it into every frame, so if you don’t see my head it’s because I myself chose to crop it off during editing.
This is one of my favorite go-to, casual looks. I often choose button-down shirts because they add instant structure to my look. Linen is a natural fabric, so it still breaths in the summer when temperatures are still high.
I was especially drawn to the lovely ombre color of this shirt.
If you are short-waisted like me, make sure to purchase your button-down shirts in the Petite section. This length of this shirt is perfect and balances out my proportions. Also, check out these tips for wearing bermuda shorts.
As always, I like to add a little icing to every outfit, even when it’s a casual one. I chose some of my favorite stainless/silver jewelry and then a cut pair of Lucky Brand mint sandals.
I picked up this ombre linen shirt on clearance at Belk. Unfortunately, they don’t have this style anymore, but I did find a similar linen shirt on sale for $5.49 if any of you wear a size small!

Great tips. I have a not so white button up that I may try ombre with some dye. Thanks for the inpiration.
