Quick Hit: Perfect White Shirt Outfit

As you know, I’m very into Canadian Living magazine, and this magazine has had surprisingly good styling the past few years.

I spotted the outfit above in their April 2017 issue and thought it was perfect–the silver jewelry, strappy flats and cropped jeans — artsy, and appropriate for casual/creative work environments. I think I might be doing riffs on this outfit all Spring long…
