I’ve always been weary of button-up shirts because of their conservative nature. They often make me think of corporate work settings or a structured lifestyle. However, with the right design elements and in the right fabric, they can be relaxed, comfortable, and versatile.
The Pomelo shirt is our boxy short sleeve button-up shirt that has two oversized pockets. The sleeves are long enough to either been worn down or cuffed for a more feminine look. The Granada is our long sleeve shirt that features one pocket and has a scoop hem.
Both the Granada and Pomelo are extremely versatile and can be worn with almost everything. They are the perfect addition to our work-from-home lifestyle because it instantly elevates your outfit to the right amount of business.
Below are four outfits with our two button-up shirts:
Outfit 1: The New Pantsuit
Nothing makes me feel more empowered and like a boss than a matching set. The short sleeve Pomelo makes the outfit casual and breezy while the Lena pants add the right flare (ha, get it? They are wide-leg and therefore flared). This pantsuit would look equally good with the Papaya shorts, which I plan to add soon!

Outfit 2: Get in Them Jeans
Sometimes you need pants with a button and zipper closure to feel productive, right? Add a long sleeve button-up shirt and you’ll be ready to tackle work and life. I don’t particularly love wearing jeans at home, but they sure did make me feel good.

Outfit 3: No Pants Party
Who wants to join the no pants party? There are days when I don’t want anything near my waistline. A long dress that feels almost like a pajama slip does the trick when I want pure comfort. *Fun fact: I actually made the Avery slip in sample fabric and wear it as my pajamas.* In case I need some shoulder coverage, I’ll add the Pomelo shirt on top. It can be worn untied and unbuttoned for a casual look or tied at the waist for some definition.

Outfit 4: Business Casual
Say hello to the new business casual. There’s a little bit of business and a whole lot of casual with this outfit. Hang out in your super comfy sports bra like this Free Label Andie Bra and pair it with the Granada and Lena for a put-together look.
