{Lookbook} Bird War

 HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
{Ok, now that that's out of the way...}

So I bought this bird shirt from Old Navy the other day.  As you know, I don't buy a lot of prints.  But there was something about this bird print that I really liked.  So I excitedly bought it, brought it home and showed the Fiance.  And then there were crickets.  WHAAAA????  He told me that the shirt either looks far too old, or far too young, but definitely not like something for a 28 (almost 29) year old.  Booo. So then I put a picture up on my Facebook page and got mixed responses.  

Hmpf.

Now, I want your opinion...

Love this post! Very endearing! I'm on the fence about the shirt. I love birds and prints...but...not sure about the shirt. You look fantastic in the pants!

Oh Brandon! She looks FABULOUS! Though I have a feeling my hubby would say the same thing as he did! I looked at this top last weekend as well...

Happy Valentine Day! You two are so adorable. I like the blouse. I think how you style the blouse that make the difference.

You know, I think you look stunning in that shirt! And ultimately it is the confidence you have while wearing it that decides how young or old or perfect it is on you. You love it! And you pulled it off! Don't let your fiance completely rule your wardrobe ;) he'll have different taste than you at times, but he fell in love with you for a reason!

I think you look great in the shirt and it perfect. But on the other hand, I wouldn't wear it, because my great-grandmother always wore parrot print. Thus I find it an old style. Buuuuut...... thing come back in! And that's why we love vintage!

I think this comment explains why I didn't vote hehe :) I kind of have multiple view points!

Luvv, Leigh B

I just got a blouse 100% polyester a bit like that, except it had a red/yellow pattern! It was from the salvation army- so I got it for under $3! I love great deals! And thank you for the congrats!


God bless always

Screw everyone else. I LOVE this on you! Prints are tough to buy, and I applaud you for going outside your comfort zone, BBF! Think of how cute this would be under a blazer!!

chillairandperfume said...

Um, I don't know what people are thinking because I LOVE THIS BLOUSE. The pattern is adorable, and it's so nice to see you rocking a pattern! I'm going to have to check out an ON soon, apparently because their stuff you bought is fab!

I think the bird print is really cute, I think since you styled it in a great way, it looks just right :) haha and yes I did change my header :) I like your new header too!

Bravoe Runway said...

Hmmmm I don't Sarah about this blouse...I think my initial fb comment was tweet tweet :) But this is coming from a person who doesn't really buy prints so I'm torn...
