Outfit of the Day | Reasons I Should Hate This Shirt

Top: TJMaxx I think | Jeans: Victoria's Secret | Sandals: Sam Edelman | Monogram necklace: eBay | Bracelet: J.Crew | Watch: Fossil

This shirt is literally all of my least favorite things in a shirt combined.
Dolman sleeves. I hate the baggy shirt/tight sleeve thing because it makes layering hard and I am pretty much always wearing a jacket of some type.
The color orange. I hate orange. I don't know why. When I'm shopping, if I see something orange, it's like a 99.8% no.
It has giant oversized horizontal stripes. Because that's slimming.
The neckline. It's just wide enough to make layering awkward but not wide enough to be a one-shoulder thing.

But for whatever reason, it's never even touched the donation pile in my every-other-weekly closet cleanouts. I love this shirt. I would go so far as to call it my favorite shirt, except I don't really wear it as much as I wear my other shirts because it's not really as versatile. Do you guys have clothes like this or is it strictly a Sam thing?

  1. I finally got rid of all my dolman shirts recently. I hate the way they look on me and I am the same way with layering, Always have a jacket or sweater on. I don;t know why I kept buying them(good prices? cute patterns? they were in every store and about the only option in stores for awhile)But after holding onto them for awhile I decided they needed to go! haha. I do that with other items as well! HA

    1. I sometimes get in these giant purging moods - you definitely have to strike while the iron's hot! this is the only dolman-sleeved offender that survived.

  2. I'm not a big fan of dolman sleeves, but the shirt looks cute on you!

  3. I used to LOVE dolman shirts and as soon as they hit the market two years ago I went a little cray with them. They are definitely (although often secretly) my favorite shirts. They're just so comfortable! I like to tuck them into a skirt and wear them with a scarf. But I'm 100% behind this outfit! Dolmans4ever.

  4. I totally have shirts like that. Everything about them should be awful, but for some reason I keep reaching for them. Some things just don't need to make sense, I guess.

    I really love how the stripes go in different directions. Super, super cute.
