Look of the Day: gingham & denim

My husband didn't want this shirt anymore, so I snatched it up and cut the sleeves off. I've really been wanting a gingham shirt, and even though it's not quite the fit I was looking for, it will do for now. It looks good belted and there's enough material to tie a knot in the front. Thanks for the donation, husband!

Speaking of husbands, Trevor and I have been married for nearly a year! I can't believe it's been that long already! We are planning on going to Tutta Bella for our anniversary, since it's where we went for our wedding lunch. They have award-winning Neapolitan-style pizza and this amazing salad with beats, pistachios, and goat cheese. The salad is so good we ordered two that last time we were there.


Here's that lovely little bag from Mochi Beaucoup again. I just love it with anything blue, but especially navy. It goes nicely since this shade of orange is closer to a neutral than a bright.

J. Crew men's gingham shirt - J. Crew jersey cardigan - Vintage belt and bracelets - Mochi Beaucoup mini bag - American Eagle jeggings - thrifted shoes (similar) and sunglasses (similar)

Awesome idea to steal hubby's shirts. My hubby is tiny though and with my increased bust, his shirts are pretty form fitting on me now. LOL. But gingham always seems to be a "guy" shirt fabric, so I should check for some at the thrift stores and make them more girly. :) That bag is so cute too! <3

i love husband clothes! i actually borrowed my husbands dress pants and belted them to make a paper bag waist - it was cute, except i wore them to the airport, and once i had to take my belt off, and stand with my arms and legs apart for 7 seconds... well, lets just say, if i had to hold the pose for 8 seconds, hundreds of weary travelers would have seen my hot box...yikes! anyways, great outfit and airport safe! ;)
