I always said, “August is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
For some of August, you actually do know what you’re gonna get: the end of summer, the closing of pools, and the return of school, but let’s be real, when I say you never know what you’re gonna get, I am referring to good old MOTHER NATURE!
Growing up in the Midwest, Rachel and I have experienced Augusts that reach up to 100 degrees, and others that get as low as 60 degrees. So how’s a girl supposed to dress for this?! That’s easy…button-ups!!
Quick confession: I honestly have 0 clue if it’s “button-ups” or “button-downs” and not sure I ever will, so bear with me!
Button-ups have been a part of our wardrobes ever since we got our first debit card, and they aren’t leaving anytime soon. They are SO versatile, lightweight, and we recently realized how perfect they are for transitioning your summer pieces to fall!
All we did was take this cute & colorful tank crop top, throw on some flare jeans (which are great for basically any season), and add a simple button-up under it all to keep the look interesting AND comfortable! Easy as pie!! Another cute way you could transition your clothes is by rolling up the sleeves and tying a button-up over a mini dress.
So stop thinking only businesswomen can wear button-ups and start shopping! And you have no excuses for not owning a button-up because I’ve included a TON of different options for you below all for under $100! #ballinonabudget
