My dad gave me his old, vintage bolo tie quite some time ago. However, I've struggled with the styling. I recently came to the conclusion that the look is just too buttoned up with full length sleeves. In order to make a casual button-down look youthful and flattering, I can't cover both my arms and neck. Therefore, if I'm wearing my tie, I need roll up my sleeves. I've never actually worn this shirt with the sleeves rolled up, and I love it! It almost has a boy-scout kind of feel to it.
I have recently become a whole lot more adventurous with my mismatched patterns. I have four patterns in this outfit! When I first starting mixing prints, I thought a striped tee under a floral dress was adventurous! Oh boy, the times have changed!
Also, I got some new geeky glasses at Claire's the other day! The light pink is a graceful alternative to the boldness of black.Bolo Tie, Dad's closet. Shirt, vintage from Goodwill.
