The Shirt Factor

Monday, April 16, 2012

Boyfriend's shirt (preferably in white or oxford blue) with rolled up sleeves, foxy underwear (it's a must), skinnies, messy hair and a bit of red lipstick - my uniform of choice. I've been coming back to that combination a lot in the past few weeks as it oozes simplicity, makes me feel pretty and it's extremely comfortable. Also, a plain shirt gives a great canvas to play around if you feel a bit friskier.

My darlings, do you wear shirts or you'd rather stay away from them? Do you ever nick one or two from your boyfriend's/husband's closet? Fancy any of the combinations above? xo

P.S: Also, mix don't match trend and all about white tees.

The husband's shirt - a must have in a girl's wardrobe;-)

Oh, I love shirts like these!

I didn't in the past but have fallen back in love with them over the past year. So easy going yet chic. :)

My man is a giant, so I would drown in his shirts, but I love love a soft button down with skinnies! I am in a chambray phase and love pairing that hue with bright bottoms :)

little t, that is Gemma Arterton but she totally looks like Hanelli from the side:)

Wore one yesterday! Almost exactly like the 2nd to last one, wrangler denim. I bought two to sell in my shop and kept them both :)

Very cute. I recently bought a boyfriend shirt and had only worn it once but wore it last week and a stranger came up and complimented it. :)

I adore a good button down but I hate the ironing that comes along with one :)
They are great to pair with shorts in the spring
My problem is finding a good fit with my boy like body, girls shirts are too short and boys shirts are too wide. I need to find a good tailor
Have a sweet day

A classic, you can't go wrong with a traditional oxford/boyfriend style shirt.

I love this look but not on me. Something just looks funny when I where something like this. My daughter on the other hand would look adorable in any of these. It's very fresh and stylish! I'm ring to have to send it to her:) Have a great week!

I love those shirts! But why call them boyfriend's? A woman can easily own one in every way!

Diana Mieczan said...

You totally should try them out, Chic 'n Cheap Living. They are perfect for rolling up sleeves:)

Love, Love, Love this look! It's so cute!

laurenjeanallece said...

Yes! I love this look... I tend to buy only men's button downs, for some reason they just make a girl feel so sexy when she does it up right!

Totally, Lauren!!!
