I Like Big Florals and I Cannot Lie

My closet never has enough tops. I buy tons of skirts in funky prints from yesteryear but never quite get around to filling up on shirts. I have a substantial tee and blazer selection too but blouses are lacking which is how I came to thrift this floral shirt.

I like how simple yet well constructed this one is. The big tropical floral prints caught my eye first. It's comfortable and soft. I loved the small shoulder pads. I think they add a unique look to the top and a nice straight line to my rounded shoulder / back area.

My first thought was to cut some of the bottom off and turn it into a boxy crop top. That could still happen but I decided not to let it take up space in my closet waiting. I'm wearing it as is.

floral top style ideas

Shell tops are a thrift store regular. They're a nice way to build a closet cheaply as they are in the $3 range. I see them all the time and I think it's time for me to grab a few more for my closet. Nice and easy for quick dressing but still adding some visual interest. I just need to find the baby shoulder pads and good fit all over again. 

I love a good thrift challenge.

how to wear vintage

I struggled with how to wear this top without looking like I'm wearing a costume. I wanted a florals and stripes repeat but I think a pencil skirt would take this look totally 90s. Skinny jeans turned out to be a better choice.  A modern cut jean or shoes will work every time to cut the vintage and make old clothes look less dated.
