Boring old white button downs…no more! Our Week 3 Challenge was a wild success and you all have brought new life to those white shirts. Some of you went for the belted look, others accessorized like champs and a few of you even rocked my personal favorite: layers. As always, we LOVE seeing what our readers come up with and how you shop your closets. We hope this has been as inspiring for you as it was for us. Keep it UP, readers!

This Week’s Winner Is…

Klaudia (IG: @fitserbmama)

Simple and classic…. love!

Saki (IG: @sakitaylor

YES to the idea of a shirt under a dress. So many creativity points, girl!

Jessie (IG: @mountaineer_chick)

The overalls, the floppy hat, those FRAMES!! Girl, we love.

Elizabeth (IG: @elizabethrafter)

The pop of color is to die for (and so is that head scarf)… but we love a good all black outfit too!

Sara (IG: @saraekeller)

Sara killed it with that lacey top.. absolutely beautiful!

Deirdre (IG: @deirdremichelle11)

A jumpsuit and cheetah shoes?! AMAZING, Deirdre.

Jess (IG: @jessthurbergould)

The double cuffs go perfectly with the button up… and so does that glass of wine.

Alastar (IG: @ozncocosmama)

Complete with a cool belt!! Cutest chef ever.

Janice (IG: @janicepersico)

Everything about this works so well!

Erin (IG: @the_lemonista)

Erin really made this look come alive with those amazing pants. Such a fun print!

Andrea (IG: @adavis13)

A belted button-down = a whole lotta YES.

Melissa (IG: @stahlabouttheoutfit)

We’re loving how you dressed up your camo, Melissa!

(IG: @hanpeining)

This is such an easy everyday look.

Krista (IG: @kjkauff)

Next style challenge…rock a TIE!? I think yes. We’re taking notes, Krista

Tiarra (IG: @beingtiarra)

Impossible to choose which outfit we like better. They’re both styled perfectly.


Shana (IG: @shanachristine)

Try having your pretty, lacey bra pop out from underneath your white button-up like, S!

Julieta (IG: @theunbosom)

When in doubt, throw on a sweater like Julieta’s cropped, sporty number!

Scotti (IG: @scottiliz)

Ripped jeans work great with white button-ups, but bring it up a notch with a military style jacket.

Cams (IG: @camilledipaola)

Cam’s outfit is all about the details. Try a fun jean to spruce up your plain white button-up. LOVE the stars.

Laura (IG: @elletrain)

We love that Laura decided to button it all the way up. It gives it an entire new shape!!


Team TME


  1. Love! This was a fun challenge! CNt wait to see what everyone does with their white jeans this week! Will the challenges continue after next week? I’m really enjoying them! Also, my head scarf is from Lush. They have tons of them in fun colors and patterns! They’re a nice sturdy cotton and pretty much stay in place when I’m wearing them.

  2. Love seeing all the ideas. So amazing to see how even though several people wore their shirts with jeans, each look was truly different. Great challenge and thanks to all the participants!
