A $100 shine on a $3 pair of boots

That's a quote from Bill Murray in Stripes, a fine '80s Army flick, FYI...
Glasses - Prada
Shirt - thrifted vintage
Skirt - ? No tags and it's from high school
Ballet flats - Mudd

The VERY IMPORTANT back of the shirt... it's glorious!
I LOVE this shirt. An insanely large amount. It's kinda difficult to figure out how to wear though... last time I wore it's with black cropped pants, but now it's was too cold for that! Today is my first day back at work, so I decided to wear this shirt because it's the softest and most comfortable thing on Earth, it seriously must have been washed a million times by it's previous owner because Army shirts are STIFF when they are new. Throw in a jersey skirt and it's like I'm secretly still in pajamas! OK, one more picture of the back... look at all the cute fabrics that are hand-sewn on!
I think this shirt is one of the first things I would try to save in a fire... I love it that much!  I just wish I knew who owned it before me... I can just barely make out his name on the pocket, it says "GARBER."

I hope you're feeling better today. A pajama-esque outfit will surely help. :)

That shirt is supremely badass. I'd love to meet this Garber fellow...

I'd love to see it with jeans, or cut offs in the Spring, or cut off and tights right now. Or over a realllllly feminine lacy tulle-y dress. Or in my own closet. ;)

Looks great both ways you've worn it so far!

This top is clearly an amazing find and I like all of WWWYG's suggestions. I also think maybe belted and open over a black tank dress.
Glad you're feeling better.

What a crazy shirt! When you wear thrifted items, do you sometimes wonder if a previous owner has ever seen you and recognized it, either in person or on this blog? I live in a small town, and that's my one fear with thrifting things that are somewhat distinct. I'm paranoid that I'll wear something that used to belong to my boss's daughter, for instance! :)

That shirt is fantastic. I always wear sweater dresses when i want secret pajamas.
