One of the elements I listed out in my first Anthropologie Style Plus Size Clothing post was whimsical. It was for that very reason I decided to give this button down shirt with elephants on it a try when I was shopping at Forever 21. It is so similar to the Daytrip Buttondown that Anthropologie used to carry a few years ago.
Button down shirts and I have not had the best of relationships in the past so I was hesitant to even put another one on my body. And when I did I discovered that it was the relaxed, flowy fabric that made all the difference in the world. It had been the stiffer, more structured shirts that made me feel like I needed to be heading to a corporate setting.
To style this white & black shirt, I kept it pretty simple and laid back by rolling up the sleeves and front tucking it into a pair of lightly distressed girlfriend jeans.
The new aviators are a bargain buy from Big Lots of all places. Mix all of this together along with my Louis Vuitton handbag and I truly have a “high-low” outfit. I love mixing brands from all price points like this to create a unique look.
I was a bit shocked to see that this elephant print shirt was already sold out online since I first showed it here on my Shop With Me video post a few weeks ago, but I have listed a few whimsical options below. And if you have a Forever 21 store with a plus size section in it near you, I would check there too.
And true to my “Designing From My Closet” nature, I have an elephant in my living room as well. I love the whimsy this pillow brings to this little corner of the room.
