Tori and I are having such fun with our series, One Trend, Two Generations, that she’s jumping for joy!
Okay, she’s not really this excited. But we are having lots of fun selecting one trend at a time and styling it for our generation.
For our fourth post in the series, we each selected our favorite floral top and styled it for a summery look.
Tori found this cropped top with a red poppy pattern and little buttons up the front at Forever 21 a couple of summers ago.
She wore it here with black jeans that she bought last week at Goodwill, then made into cut-offs and a pair of Cole Haan sunglasses from Marshalls she found for just $20.00! Tori loves a bargain, just like me!
Her flip flops are Havianas. We bought them in Paris last spring at the Haviana boutique in le Marais.
My floral shirt is a recent thrift store score for $4.00. It was a rather surprising find because this shirt is part of Gap’s Spring/Summer 2013 line. In fact, I bought shorts in this very same pattern a couple of months ago.
It’s a size XL and I usually take a medium in Gap clothes. But I knew I could make it work somehow. I buttoned the shirt all the way up, then added a pearl statement necklace I bought almost two years ago.
I tied the shirt at the waist, rolled the sleeves up and wore it with pleated navy blue shorts I bought at H & M in Las Vegas last summer.
I notice there is a tiny bit of flesh showing at the waist in the photo below. Though that was not my intention, I am not concerned if it’s just a tiny glimpse. For me, at 45-years-old, I keep midriff baring to beaches and pools. I’ll leave the crop tops for Tori and her friends!
I also carried my Louis Vuitton Beverly GM, a 43rd birthday gift from my husband, cat eye sunglasses I wore for the last HIWM, and a pair of blue suede wedges to complete my look.
