Made You Look: Let’s Get Shirty

So excited for today’s blog event. For this month’s Made You Look, I wanted to challenge us to wear a closet staple – the button down shirt – in various different ways. For fall, I like to wear mine under sweaters and with dress shorts & booties. I did come across a way to wear it as a tube top – which is so approps since it’s still 80 degrees here in Atlanta – and tried wearing it as a skirt. I used the original shirt I turned into a tube top here. And remember Hubs’ shirt I wore in this post? I decided to get myself one in pink and turned it into a strapless top for this post. I was wondering what I could wear the makeshift strapless top with and I realized you can wear it with almost anything – pants, jeans, a skirt, whatever you’d like.

As far as the skirt’s concerned, the larger the shirt the better – mine’s a large. It’s better looking and more comfortable. Oh, and when you tuck the sleeves in, you get makeshift pockets!! My absolute favorite part. So I managed to truly utilize my button down shirts as a strapless top and skirt. How do you wear your button down shirt?
