This is my first time doing this challenge ...and I…

The look for less: my J. Crew inspired classic button down

Hey friends! How are you in hanging in there? I know some states are lifting restrictions but I know a lot of us are still being really cautious. I’ve had a lot of time (like most of us) to really sink my teeth into a project that I’ve been itching to do for quite some…
