really like the flowery “corsage” detail of this LOFT
top, so much so, that I spent quite a bit getting it altered as you can see in this post
. I decided to invest in this shirt because when worn by itself, it is so much more interesting than just a boring button down.I also really like the idea of wearing a button down collared shirt as casual wear. It is such a sophisticated look don’t ya think? Not to mention a great way to assert that yes, I may be small, but I am indeed a full grown adult thankyouverymuch.
I’ll note here that I hate tucking in shirts. As anyone who has a short torso can attest, tucking in shirts only makes your torso look even shorter…which looks super awkward. It just gives me what I call “spider body”…i.e… no body and all legs. So, I left it hanging out for these pics. I also like to style my button downs (and jackets) with rolled sleeves, as I feel like the more skin I show in tops, the more presence I have. Any one else feel this way?
So…here go a few casual outfits I put together with the freshly tailored LOFT corsage button down. As you can see, I’m still rockin’ the skinny jeans…I’m slowly starting to really like them. Paige jeans are seriously the best thing ever!
With long layered necklaces and grey suede Cole Haans:
Switching it up with the Manolo Blahniks:
Adding a Banana Republic sweater, and short pearls:
I like how the shirt can be layered, hiding the shoulder detail, making it look like a whole new shirt! I call the last one my “country club wife” look. All I need is a tennis racket and a Bloody Mary. =PHave a good weekend everyone!
