New Polkadot Gap 1969 Shirt!! red scarf with pom poms?

Hi Lovely YLFRS,
Just got my new shirt the other day and wore it for the first time today. It is a small and seems to fit ok. Can't wear blue jeans to work so I just paired it with motorcycle boots and my black denim jeans. Added a red scarf for color but I am not sure I won't be cutting the pom poms off. I really want to find some nice colored jeans (maybe red or white). This is a pretty casual look but very comfy. Hope it looks ok.

    Beautiful! Love the color and the pattern mix. I checked out this shirt but it looked awful on me. You are ROCKING it! I kind of like the pom-poms, actually.

    That shirt is perfect on you Meredith - fits fabulously and I love you in navy and white. Like Una, I actually like the pom-poms - makes the outfit more whimsical. And your best accessory? That gorgeous smile!

    Hi shirt twin! I love this shirt on you! And the red scarf with pom poms is the perfect accessory to liven it up! You've got a beautiful smile!

    Meredith, you're an inspiration --- thank you, especially as I'm taking notes on 'comfy casual' this week! That scarf just makes the outfit, which starts out so calm and collected, and brings it to double-take-worthy. And I too like the whimsy of those tassels --- fantastic in their very frivolity.

    Meredith,I love this shirt on you! I ad tried it on, and lije Unan it jusr didn't work for me, butlooks great on you. I really like the red scarf, also. It has a touch of blue in the flowers which brings out the denim. Way to go!

    I bet you do TOO long nice in this shirt!
    Thanks for appreciating the whimsey since it isn't something I do much of.
    I forgot you own this shirt. Please post the link to you wearing it as I can't find it. I think Kirti owns it too.

    Thanks lovely ladies for liking the shirt and scarf. I'm working on nicer pants!
    I feel flattered to be anyone's inspiration! You have made me feel very special!
    Western style shirts are difficult for me to wear too. This one just happened to be a little more tailored in the shoulder (I have whimpy shoulders!) so it didn't feel like it was just hanging there. Thanks for noticing the blue in the scarf!

    Hi Meridith,
    Here's me wearing the polka dot shirt with red skinny jeans and red Converse:
    I love having clothing twins/triplets!

  • Claudia replied 9 years ago

    I like the pom poms -- a very french detail. I'd leave them on this scarf.

  • Queen Mum replied 9 years ago

    I love these 2 together. You look great.
    How does that shirt wear? I was looking at it,but the fabrication seemed to me that it might not hang as nicely as I like, and that it could wrinkle easily. What was your experience?

    Great shirt, great scarf! You really look fab.

    Save the pom-poms! Sorry I just had to say that first. I've been looking for a good pom-pom scarf for a while. Is is square? The red looks great on you, as does the Gap shirt. Way to branch out!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Now I remember that outfit you wore! I thought it was so cute it helped push me into buying mine. Now I want the red pants to go with it. The converse look so cute also! Waving at clothing polka-dot twin.

    It's funny because I really questioned the pom poms but I'm glad you both think they look fine with the scarf!
    The pom pom's shall be saved as the fab YLFRS have dicated it shall be so. The scarf is from AE and it is a long rectangle.
    I found the wearing of it pretty comfortable. I think it might wrinkle a little but that doesn't bother me. It seems to hang pretty well and as soon as I drop the extra 5 lbs I picked up after summer it will hang even better.
