STYLE / 50

photos by angela + ithyle

floral top, bright pants. you’ve seen it before. but this look has been going through normal rotation over here. i mean look how amazing taylor t looks doing it.

when angela and i went out to shoot these she said the shirt looked kinda like something her grandma would wear. which made me laugh. and it’s true, those boxy patterned button ups aren’t the most flattering…but i just love them. this one kinda looks like a cheesy painting but somehow isn’t cheesy in shirt form. or maybe it is. maybe i’m cheesy.

anyways! here’s how you can achieve this grandma chic look yourself, ladies…

shop tops: yellow tank / silk top / corset
shop pants: purple / red / pink
