Recently I have been feeling the whole slouchy Olsen/ Hudgens button down boyfriend shirt look- that casual messy je ne sais quoi- that “I rolled out of bed and grabbed what my man wore the night before and am just going to go grab a latte or some super hip of the moment drink before I hit the stores for some inspiration on this lazy Sunday afternoon and I am so cool I may just belt that shirt for my evening cocktails with the ladies” look.
You see what I am trying to say?
I know I am not the only one feeling this look- there are many a female I cross paths with in Montreal who rock the laid back style (sleeves rolled up the the elbows, few buttons undone, maybe paired with a braided belt, possible worn with short shorts or jeans). In any case (I wanted to purchase myself a shirt, slightly oversized which would make it flexible to my outfit modifications and preferably in a light blue prep school color. I also wanted it cheap because paying even $25 for one seemed unreasonable. This is one trend I’ll be done and over with in about 2 weeks.
I checked out Old Navy Women’s section which offered a variety that I found too expensive ($24.50 yikes!) and too fitted (how can I pull off a boyfriend look if the shirt is not baggy??). I was on the brink of giving up when lo and behold the Boy’s (not Men’s) section answered my calling: not only was the shirt that perfect oversized-ness I coveted, but the price was a tad ridiculous- $10 ON SALE! I am not going to lie- it felt a bit odd browsing the section, looking for my size (a large I guess??) and trying it on. But was exactly what I was looking for. Ok, cheesy line to end this posting coming up, wait for it: Sometimes you find exactly what you are looking for in the most unexpected places- awwwwwwww.
Do you like this shirt? Have you ever bought any clothes from the boy’s/men’s department?
