If you take one peek into my closet, one thing becomes abundantly apparent: I love a good button up. Over the years I have honed in a few great ones. (My favorite is one from Joe Fresh, which apparently is no longer in the United States.) I have a bunch of different styles depending on how I’m planning on wearing it– slim for tucking in, cute collars for layering under sweaters, etc.
I kept getting ads for AYR on Facebook. I kept clicking on them and admiring the shirts and then they’d follow me around the internet essentially taunting me. These button downs intrigued me. (Even Oprah was spotting wearing one.) I finally broke down and ordered a white and a blue kind of hoping I’d hate it so I could stop obsessing over it online and get my money back after returning. Well, spoiler alert: I LOVE THE BUTTON UPS.
They are definitely designed for an oversized fit… but like oversized in a *just right* kind of way. I’ve been wearing them a bunch while at home. They look great with skinny jeans as a tunic… and would even be cute with leggings. The shirts are long enough to fully cover your butt. And there’s something so flattering about how the side swoops up. I also plan on wearing mine over bathing suits as a coverup too.
I got a ton of questions about these when I posted about it on my Story. I’m wearing an XS… and if you’re in between sizes I’d go down, not up. A few people said it reminded them of Elizabeth James from The Parent Trap, which I loved 😉
