The other morning I went out for brunch with my fiancé and parents. Afterwards, I wasn’t ready to go home so I decided to share with my fiancé one of my favorite spots in the east bay. I go to this garden to get away from the noise and gather my thoughts for inspiration. It is like my little sanctuary outside of the busy city. I love it here!
About this outfit in the photos, I have been on a mission to find the perfect white, button down shirt for quite some time. My fiancé was the first to point out that I did not have any quality white button downs for work. I took note of his criticism and decided to invest a nice white, button down shirt.
Throughout my search, I was surprised to learn that even the women’s section in almost every department store did not carry quality button down shirts. After extensive research online, I came across Claridge + King from an article about the perfect white button downs on Refinery29. I ordered a few shirts and had my fiancé examine the quality (since I would consider the man an expert with his 1000+ button down shirts in his closet). We both agreed that the quality was outstanding. Crisp collars, beautiful mother of pearl buttons, it’s absolutely the perfect shirt to dress up with a midi skirt, wear to work under a blazer or even just with jeans.
