Daily Threads: Knotted Up


Let's just go ahead and address the elephant in room on the blog - yes, my very first outfit of this challenge was very similar, but still different. I love them both. Husband loved this outfit today too. I know it's good when he speaks up about it. 

I tied the bottom pieces of my shirt in a knot and felt like 'elementary school Linley'. I was such a bit fan of knotting my shirt. Even t-shirts - they were knotted without fail. I feel a bit summery too. And a bit like a 1950s teenager. And just for the record - I love it.

As a kid, did you ever have those neon plastic clips specifically for pulling your t shirt through for the same effect? Oh man, give me some white leggings, a hypercolor t shirt and a lime green little shirt clip and I was STYLIN.

This, however, is a much better alternative to that look :)

This is a great outfit, I can see why your hubby likes it too! And actually, I don't really think it looks like your first outfit that much.

I've been tying my shirts lately too. There's something fresh about it. . . I think that's the right word. :)

Your hubs is right - that outfit looks great on you.

I love the outfit too--I can never get tired of gingham button ups, seriously. And I am so envious of those red pumps!

I'm a huge fan of knotted shirts...and I totally wear them whenever the opportunity presents itself. ;)

Allison said...

Adorable look. I forgot about how much we knotted our shirts back in the 90's! I could never figure out how to knot t-shirts just right so I always just used a hair tie haha. You must have always been gifted in the fashion arena :)

LiLi said...

Looking fabulously 50ies! I wish I could pull this off without looking like a housewife/milkmaid. You absolutely don't look that way and you do it so effortlessly! Big thumbs up!
Ah, must be my Eastern European genes. I somehow have a distinct farmer aura to me, LOL.

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

You're right this definitely has a 50s vibe. It looks great and quite different from the other look (although they share the greatness).
