How to: the oversized boyfriend shirt.

As a really petite person I try and stay away from oversized items. Maxi skirts/dresses, oversized sweaters, etc all tend to swallow me up. But I found this oversized pinstriped shirt from a yardsale for 50c. and for some reason I felt compelled to try it out. It was actually labeled a large but I decided to go for it because it didn't look too long for me.

 I believe this shirt is a women's shirt but it reminded me of all the posts and trends going around about wearing your boyfriend's clothes (which I don't have) so here is my take on it!

I'm not going to lie - I felt a bit like Ellen Degeneres wearing this outfit (but what's wrong with that?).I'm a big fan of menswear and I thought this shirt would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe. I also thought it would be nice to be able to make it a bit more casual with jeans. I paired the shirt with my dark wash skinny jeans from American Eagle that I've had for quite a long time. But you could easily wear this shirt tucked into a skirt. 

I also paired the oversized top with a more fitted red vest I thrifted forever ago. It's a lightweight wool vest so it's perfect for the changing seasons and keeping me a little bit warmer. I also just went with my classic black booties from Nordstrom as I love how they look with cuffed jeans!

That's it for my super casual oversized button-down look! I guess I tend to post more casual looks on the weekend if that is okay with everyone. 

As always - please let me know what you think in the comments.
