green gingham

As you all are probably aware by now, I really love all things gingham. I recently acquired a green gingham button-up from Twice*, and I was really excited when it arrived. It wasn’t until I tried it on that I realized that it was a “tall” size and also quite big + boxy, almost as if it were a men’s size. It was just $8, so I figured it wasn’t worth spending the money to send it back.



I attempted to “make it work” (thank you, Tim Gunn) today by belting it and pairing it with skinny jeans. I’m not totally dissatisfied with the final result, but I really think the shirt just needs to be altered. I do like that the longer length of the shirt covers my butt though 🙂

  1. You definitely made it work, but I bet it would be even more versatile and you’d feel more comfortable if you took the sides in a little bit. I love the color, though, and the addition of leopard was a great choice! 🙂
