Something Old, Something New

Floral Tent Dress - Balenciaga Inspired

Hey guys,  I am back with a new blog post.  Here I am featuring a blouse that I received from my boyfriend's grandmother a while ago.  However, after viewing the recent AW17 Balenciaga collection, I was halted at Look 31 because it was so similar to the vintage piece I own.  I immediately went to find my floral oversized shirt, so that I could style it up and feature it here on the blog.

As I have expressed here on the blog several times, I tend to go for clothing that is a bit oversized.  Although I have a smaller frame, I don't like to show it off at all.  So both my shirt and the Balenciaga dress would be pieces that I would grab almost daily.  This shirt would definitely make more than one appearance on the blog because I can already tell it's a favorite.

To create my perfect "grannie chic" look I paired my floral shirt with denim stretch blue jean with minimal distressing, and my absolute favorite pair of blue suede ankle boots that I scored during the winter sales at H&M.
