All remixed except shirt
Shirt: Old Navy
Skirt: Ann Taylor
Wedges: gift from parents
This outfit was inspired by Kendi of Kendi Everyday. The last time I wore a men's shirt with a skirt (on Monday), Elaine of clothed much told me the outfit looked like something Kendi would wear. That was an accident, but this is on purpose.
I got this shirt about a year ago on clearance in the men's department at Old Navy for a whopping $6. I have no problem buying men's clothes for my own use, though I am glad that I am no longer wearing men's jeans the way I did in high school (don't ask - it was NOT a good look).
I like to think that I won't look back on these button up shirts and think, "WHAT was going through my head?!" That said, I'm not sure I'm totally sold on this outfit. I think the paper bag waist and the big shirt might be too much fabric where I don't want it, but I think I've got just the skirt to make this right at a later time.
Here's a detail shot of the waistband as promised. It's kind of subtly pleated. Also, did I just post a picture of my waist? Yipes!
I love these shoes and Kiku's thoughtful face. How cute is she?!
Flying puppy! Hehehe
