Hello hello lovely people! Happy Thursday. I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week so far. Only one more day to the weekend! Does anyone have anything fun planned for this weekend? Charlie and I have been planning to go to Longwood Gardens this weekend so we’re hoping the weather holds up for us. It’s been a pretty productive week so far but today and tomorrow are gonna be nuts (in a good way!) so who knows, maybe we’ll be too tired to want to go, haha.

I snagged this plaid boyfriend shirt way back in August at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’m not sure why it took me so long to style this for you guys but I’m sorry that it did because it’s long gone now. :/ I did however share 2 very similar ones with you above! Anyways this is a super laid back and classic looking shirt. It’s a blue, plaid button down, how much more classic does it get? So, I wanted to style it in a super casual, laid back, and timeless way for you guys.
I decided to pair the shirt with a pair of high waisted and (overly) distressed jeans to keep it casual. The jeans may not be “timeless” per say, but swap them out for any light wash high waisted jeans and it’s the same concept. 🙂 I still wanted to feel somewhat put together despite the excess of rips in my jeans 😉 so I wore a pair of taupe mules and carried a slouchy taupe tote bag to compliment.
I loved that the jeans and bag had silver hardware and, it’s difficult to tell in the photos, but the shoes had very subtle silver detailing on them as well. I rarely wear silver and I love getting to play around with it so this was a great excuse to break out some silver accessories for a change. I wore a silver square face watch, a simple silver charm necklace, and a very dainty pair of silver earrings.
The earrings are from my current Rocksbox and I love all of the pieces in this box! If you haven’t tried Rocksbox out yet, you’re missing out! 😉 It’s a great jewelry subscriptions service where you get 3 pieces of jewelry to wear each month. If you don’t like them, just send them back for 3 new pieces. If you do like them, your entire monthly fee can be added towards any purchase. ANDDD, you can get your first month completely FREE if you use the code “thesavvycamelxoxo“ when you sign up.
So there ya have it, folks. A simple, timeless way to style a plaid boyfriend shirt. Like I said, if the jeans are too much or the shoes feel too trendy, swap them out for simpler items. But, in general, you really can’t go wrong with a button down, jeans, and cute flats of any sort. 🙂 Hope you enjoyed this simpler look today! Thanks for reading!
