One Shirt, Three Ways
With not much else on my plate right now, I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time thinking about my chaplaincy internship, set to start later in the month.
Tradlands reached out a couple months ago to ask if I’d like to review an item from their spring collection, and almost without thinking about its practicality, I selected the 101 Margot Button-up in Indigo Stripe. But, of course, it is really practical for the stage of life I find myself in.
In case you haven’t heard me talk about it, I typically don’t like button-up blouses. I almost always find them constricting in the shoulders, and that makes me feel anxious. But what I like about this Tradlands top is that it’s made ever-so-slightly oversized with plenty of rotation room in the shoulder.
It’s a linen/cotton blend, which makes it breathable and less stiff than a typical cotton shirt.
I decided to style it in three ways:
- Casual, for school or a lunch date (above)
- Business Casual, for my internship
- Business, for interviews and more formal events
Style Notes: I love how warm rust and yellow tones offset blue. I feel like I’m channeling Audrey Hepburn in this outfit.
Style Notes: This secondhand blazer has a light blue stripe running through the pattern, and I like the way the subtle stripe of the Margot blouse complements it.
In other news, I’m growing out my hair. I mean, I don’t have much choice, but it seems like a good opportunity to assert agency in letting it grow out. All the cute hair accessory trends are inaccessible to those of us with pixie cuts!
The Tradlands 101 Margot shirt is currently on sale for $137. I’m wearing a Medium with a 34″ bust, 29″ waist, and 40″ hips. I recommend carefully checking the size chart. I normally have to size up at Tradlands.
