I can't seem to control myself recently. I've been wearing collared shirts under pretty much everything this season. Other than the pure I-get-cold-so-I-like-to-be-cozy aspect, there is something preppy to it that speaks to my inner tomboy (I refuse to call it "borrowed from the boys," you hear me, J.Crew?) aesthetic. Plus, I quite like to pop my collar now and again.
Now there's nothing wrong to having a formula for a great go-to outfit at the ready, but I feel like I am doing it every day now. Plus, I threw on a plaid button-down under a sweatshirt with jeans this weekend to grab a casual bite with the BF and we ended up staring at each other, as he was wearing a plaid button-down under a pullover ... with jeans. Sigh - does this mean that I am dressing up like my other half now, or does it just mean I am dressing like a dude?
So even though I grabbed myself three new collared shirts this past week thank you too much super sales - I wore this outfit last week so it doesn't count anymore, right - I will try to refrain from button-down layering this week to get myself out of a big collared style rut.
Have you all found a trend or two that you can't get enough of? When do you think an go-to outfit formula can become a style rut?

Sorry , I messed up on my giveaway end date - I wrote "Sunday, November 29" which doesn't exist this year. So my Shopbop giveaway will end on the correct Tuesday, November 29 - which means you still have time to enter here!
