Summer Work Style: A Peter Pan Collar Shirt

Last week, I layered a peter pan collar shirt from The Limited under a shirt dress.  This shirt is too chic to be covered up though.  So, today, it gets the attention it deserves.

I purchased the top during a recent sale at The Limited for about $8 (orig. $42.90).  I’m wearing the shirt in “strawberry sorbet” and I believe it comes in at least one other color.  For today’s summer work look, the top is paired with a red pencil skirt.

Top—The Limited
Skirt—The Limited (red Loft skirt on sale)
Shoes—H&M ballet flats
Earrings—Kendra Scott Elle (lilac onyx)
Bag—Michael Kors Hamilton tote via Macy’s

Watch—Michael Kors via TJ Maxx (similar)

Here are a few super chic and cheap peter pan collar shirts:

    Very nice. I have the same blouse in white/beige.

      Thanks! That other color is fantastic. I actually purchased that one first, but it was too tight. When I tried to exchange it, the store only had this strawberry color.

      I heard that. This recent sale got me in there a few times.

      Thanks! The peter pan collar is gorgeous, right? I'm now eying a few dresses with that style collar.

      Indeed. The Limited has several fabulous tops that I'm loving right now.

    I'm coveting that bag! Love all the red. Wonderin' if I could remove the sleeves from a thrifted top to get a similar look…

      Ooh. Ha. I've been getting my money's worth out of this Hamilton..wearing every chance I get. I think your plan to transform the thrifted top sounds fantastic. Do it! I wish I had those skills.

    You got a great deal on the top. The Limited always has some great buys on the clearance rack in the back of the store too! I love their clothing.

      So true. When I enter, I walk straight to the back. I don't even look at anything else. Lol.
