The Man Shirt

After standing in my closet this morning, as usual, I decided that there was nothing I wanted to wear. I go through this battle daily - I'm pathetic. I don't think anything annoys my husband more and he laughs in my face anytime I tell him that I "need" something new. Nevertheless, my clothes just were not interesting me. So, when I gave up on my hangers, I moved into my husband's section of our big walk-in. Yes, we share a closet now...he's thrilled, for obvious reasons. After glancing through his collection, I decided that he had way too many fun button-down shirts and I was entirely too jealous. Of course, his are big and masculine and were not purchased for my benefit, but sometimes designers make men's shirts with some fun prints and styles that you just can't find in the women's section. So, as they say in marriage, what's his is mine :) I decided to grab one of my favorites he wears and put my own little girly spin on it for a cute, oversized, and unexpected look. No worries, he definitely still looks much cuter in it than I do. All that being said, I need you to trust me girls, because with some girly jewels, cropped pants, high heels, maybe a fitted vest to slim the shirt down some, you too could make your man's shirt look like a put together outfit! Finally, a way to wear an oversized man shirt without looking like you're in college doing the walk of shame early one morning! It's hard to make big button-downs look presentable and intentional. So, here's the look I put together. The best part? The shirt I decided to wear is actually my husband's great grandpa's shirt..so it's vintage AND it's back in style..win win.
