The Shirt, Day 1: Winter Flashback

Once upon a time, I bought this shirt.  And I said to myself, "This would be a great shirt to remix."  So I wore it.  Over and over and over again.  It seemed that nearly every time I wore it, something would prevent me from photographing it.  Which is why this picture is from so very long ago.  It's taken me this long to acquire just 5 measly photos, one for every day (M-F) this week.


I might not have thought to wear these pieces together if I hadn't purchased them on the same day.  My husband said he "didn't get it".  Which is fine.  He doesn't have to get it.  Heck, I don't really get it either.  It just worked somehow.

Ooooh, it totally works, it's like opposite prints almost. I don't really get what I just said but I get the outfit. And I also love the pop of color in the shoe! You look fantastic!

Well I 'get' it. haha I think it works because it's two crazy patterns/textures, but they are both black and white. Just my take on it. Either way, you look great!

Sometimes men just don't get it. Who cares! I get it, and I think you look beautiful!

the prints are close enough...but different enough...that they build off each other into something fabulous. honestly, i LOVE this. and i love that your husband admits he doesn't "get it." for some reason, that makes me all "awwww"ish inside. cute.
