The iconic button up every closet needs!

Even now and then, you get a little treat in a bag with a bow 🤍 I remember several years ago, while I was working at Nordstrom, everyone in the department received a white shirt. Little did we know it would become the iconic button up every closet needs! Frank & Eileen was launching, and the brand wanted all of us to experience first hand the quality and fit of these amazing shirts. To be honest, mine sat around for a few months. Then, when the world stopped and my wardrobe completely changed, I pulled it out. And, from that day until now, I’ve worn that same shirt EVERY WEEK — I’m not exaggerating. And, I’ve written about it for three years!

So, a few weeks ago when Frank & Eileen reached out to work together, I immediately said yes! This incredible company is woman-owned and woman-led. And, it uses the best Italian fabric to create modern staples that build comfortable, wearable wardrobes. Headquartered in sunny California, Frank & Eileen has “partnered exclusively with ethical and sustainable manufacturers to craft pieces using the finest raw materials found in nature.”

Today’s post is about my favorite F&E pieces that I’ll be wearing all spring long — and into summer. This includes the button up shirts that create so many outfits and the fleece, which is super soft and comfortable. Oh, and the shirtdress, of course … now one of my favorites. Keep reading for a little style board inspo and the stylish pieces I’m certain you’ll love as much as I do!

The Joedy button up is the cotton shirt I’ve been sharing for years. It’s made of the best Italian fabric, and it’s really lightweight. Basically, it’s perfect for layering or tying over a dress, wearing open like a jacket, or just tucking in! I can’t say enough good things about this wardrobe staple. It’s incredibly versatile, and everyone should try one 😌 Also, I recently received the “Barry” cotton shirt in black, and it’s thin, loose and perfect for warm weather climates.


Shirt Dresses


Frank & Eileen “Mary” Shirt dress

A shirtdress is pretty much the perfect dress to wear on warm summer days. The Frank & Eileen “Mary” style is their best-seller. It has a frayed hem, and the length is perfect. I opted for the white one, and now I’m considering this striped version. In fact, I highly recommend this one — it was perfect for my recent Palm Springs vacation! In fact, I really can’t imagine traveling without one of these in my suitcase. It’s also super easy to style — check out the inspo below.

Probably the number one thing I wore on our recent vacation was this fleece sweatshirt — super soft, comfortable and versatile. I wore it with these white chino pants, my favorite faded denim and over my shoulders for extra warmth (it was freezing in Joshua Tree and pretty cool at night in Palm Springs). Also, someone messaged me asking if I’ve tried this matching set, and I haven’t but am considering it. I also have my eye on this fleece dress. So many choices, and they’re all good!
