my fav outfit ever: vintage dior & shimmer pants

Happy Tuesday! Today’s super lowkey – we have Japanese tomorrow – so basically getting my ducks in a row before that. Think lots of practice as well as some blog housekeeping. I like these posts as a daily “what I did” today post.

Not only is it helpful to see what I’m {re}wearing & how, but it’s a fun peek on the day to day. Kind of like instagram but here on my blog. A big point of these too is to encourage you to shop your closet and try rewearing your clothes vs buying more.

Since I do so much vintage shopping & on shopping ban, I’m not telling you to buy exactly this but maybe it can lead to some inspiration?

Both this shirt & these pants are my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITES. I love them so much that I have the pants in both colours & trying to get as many of these shirts that I possibly can {I have 3 so far}

The shirt is a vintage men’s dior chemise that I got on depop & fwiw, I buy predominately men’s vintage clothes. I like the oversized fit and it’s super customizeable. You can wear them as cover ups, wear them belted, play with the cuffs & they pair with ANYTHING: shorts, skirts, slip dresses, jeans, pants.

THESE PANTS from Express are my favourite in the world. They just scream lazy luxury to me, right? I love that they are wide leg, have a retro shimmer {so 80s/90s} & an elastic band. You’ve seen them here & here.

To recreate this outfit, try finding an inexpensive men’s shirt {seriously the thrift or vintage shops are a gold mine} or steal one that your boyfriend never wears & pair it with breezy pants! I like to keep the bottom buttons unbuttoned & either tuck in one end, tie it in a knot or let it all just hang for that long silhouette!

This is probably my go to outfit & the most “Shannon” we can get with it!
