FASHION FRIDAY —OOTD: A Vintage Flashback

Hello lovelies & happy Friday. It’s been a while since I posted a OOTD post, so I thought it would be fun to share a new outfit post!

Recently, I’ve been going through my closet rediscovering old clothing all over again. I have the worst habit of wearing the same favourites over & over again, so I’ve been making an effort to grab shirts I haven’t worn in a long time. & today’s look is featuring a very old shirt I’ve had since my university days, & was actually my Mom’s in the 80s!

Shirt: Vintage

Jeans: Ardene High Waisted Flare Cut ( Similar ones from the Gap here)

Shoes: Ardene Strappy Sandals (similar ones here)

Earrings: Claire’s Lace Cut Gold Earrings (Similar ones here)

Not even lying, slipping into this shirt was a serious trip back to my University years (click here to see baby Shannon rocking this shirt circa 2009). This shirt used to be one of my go to shirts during those years, & I feel like I haven’t worn it nearly enough in the last 10ish years. The shirt was actually found deep in my Mom’s old clothing stash, & I think technically it was a PJ shirt. But I think it makes the most boho blouse ever, & it’s so much fun to wear!

& I think pairing it was my favourite flare jeans & gladiator sandals really completes the look. Also I’m glad flare jeans are making a comeback, because man I love them so much. They’re definitely my favourite jean style!

What do you think about this look? What item of clothing from your closet have you not grabbed in a while? Let me know in the comments! I

definitely encourage you to grab that shirt/dress/whatever from the recesses of your closet & give it a spin! It’s fun talking a trip down outfits past for sure!

FASHION FRIDAY — Jeans & T-shirt OOTD

Hello lovelies & happy Friday. Today I’ve got another OOTD post for you!

While I’d love to say that every time I leave the house I feel put together & channel my inner fashion blogger, most of the time if I’m going out for a reason — groceries, coffee run, etc– I tend to go for simplicity over high fashion. But that’s not to say I don’t want to look & feel cute! So one of my favourite looks to pull together for those errand kind of days is a jeans & t-shirt & cardigan combo.

Vintage Suzuki t-shirt. Black DYI ripped skinny jeans {Ardene — similar pair here}. Grey oversized knit Cardigan {Garage}. Not pictured: Black studded knee high boots {Ardene}

So true story: this tee has been in my possession since my University days (circa 2005}, when I used to channel Mary Kate Olsen during the mid to late 2000s. Originally it was my Father’s, & I’m not exactly sure how it came to be in my possession, but I’m going to assume it had something to do with shrinking in the dryer. Haha.

Suffice to say, it’s well lived in & well loved.
