Yeah the colors on this bardot like top got me – sleeves too.  Would take a long sleeved version of it though any day.

Until I find a skirt that interests me, this old striped shirt is filling the void.   Any long oversized men’s shirt does the job!

ps.  The Net-A-Porter 50% off sale is on.  As if we needed more temptations.  Not going to lie though: these See by Chloe clogs are tempting.

.  .  .

Top: Zara.  Try similars from Topshop or NastyGal. Skirt: H&M shirt.  Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell Belan Mules. Saw these while looking for similars – holy crap.  Try David Tate or Jeffrey Campbell Apfel mules. Bag: Bao Bao Issey Miyake Prism Tote. The gold tote and the white one are on sale.  Shades: Ray-Ban Clubmaster

    Karen! I saw that you’re selling your Gucci loafers! I was LITERALLY going to purchase it online today and headed to your blog to ask you your thoughts on it but I saw that you’re selling it! Did you end up not liking them?

    How did you make the shirt into the skirt? That looks so cool!

    • Karen Blanchard says:

      I should maybe do a quick how to demo on here or on snap chat? I basically take a BIG SHIRT and button it around the lower waist but starting from like the middle buttons. The top part you sort of fold over and tie the sleeves around the waist.

    Hi karen would love if you could do a youtube tutorial on how to turn a shirt into a skirt? A blog post would do, too. Worried some might miss out on Snapchat as it only lasts 24hrs. Dying to try this look! Keep up the fab work! x
