Buttoned Backwards

I’ve been seeing a lot of people wearing their button ups backwards lately, so I figured I’d try it out. I thought that the typical fitted, cotton button down looked forced though, like it was obvious I was trying to make something work that wasn’t meant to. This button down, however, is a size large and is made of silk. I  typically don’t wear this shirt because when it wear it normally I think it looks too over-sized, but flipped backwards I love it. Worn backwards, you would actually think it is a typical high-necked, silk blouse. I would definitely wear this shirt backwards again.

Because I was on my way to class, and wearing a shirt backwards is sort of an odd concept, I kept the rest of this look simple. Maybe for next shoot I’ll go all out or something. I paired the top with some simple, dark wash skinny jeans and I added a rose gold loafer to finish it off. The trench coat was because it was cold out, and the jacket had the same preppy vibe as the button down and loafers, plus it just happens to be my favorite.

Because this outfit was mostly simple, I added a silver earring and some eyeliner to finish it off. I also slicked back my hair so I would (hopefully) look a little more polished. Honestly though, there’s not much I can do to make this awkward mop presentable. I’ve been letting it grow without a trim for about a month, and I’m just try to keep it tame until it’s long enough that I can get it shaped into a bob. I keep thinking I’m so close, but then somehow it’s two months later and my hair seems to have barely grown.

My last tidbit of news is that finals are coming up, so I may not be posting as regularly for a couple of weeks, but I’ll try to. And after that I fly back to New Hampshire and I may be there for the rest of the summer, so I’ll have a bunch of cute coffee shops and parks and beaches to post pictures of.

Thanks for reading, see you in a week or so,
