The Winter Blue Hues
I’ve got a bit of the blues. It’s January in Alberta and I’m starting to yearn for the warmer temperatures and flip-flops. As much as I love the beauty of the snow, it’s a long winter and the amount of sunshine we get in a day is pretty limited. When I leave to work in the morning, it’s completely dark outside, and when I come home, the sun has almost set. So to express my sadness, I’m wearing blue in this post: from sunglasses to shoes. But there’s nothing like a little shopping spree at my favourite store Express to chase those blues away.
My favourite new item? This super soft denim, boyfriend shirt. Why I like it? Because it can be worn so many different ways. It could be weekend casual or dressed up for a work day. The more versatile pieces you have in your closet, the easier it is to get dressed in the morning. And if you’re on a budget, I find it easier to justify spending my dollars on something that I know I will get a lot of wear out of. I am a big fan of the “boyfriend” look these days. Boyfriend watches, boyfriend shirts. It’s that over-sized comfy casual.
Great ways to wear this shirt:
*Tucked in with skinny jeans or bell bottoms. Add a belt!
*Buttoned up with a statement necklace or open with a more delicate necklace.
*Worn untucked over leggings.
*Tie the bottom ends together for a causal look over shorts, jeans or a skirt.
*Wear unbuttoned with a tank.
*Try the sleeves long or button them up to three-quarter length.
I promise, this will be a shirt that gets lots of wear until summer.
