My Style: Vintage Floral



Growing up in Arizona, I was part of the middle school generation who loved everything Hollister.  We carried Hollister bags, we wore Hollister camis, we sprayed on Hollister perfume--you name it, we had to show the seagull emblem.  Having matured and expanded my horizons, I have continued to admire the brand, especially the consistent product quality and the company's ability to update its product line while staying true to its California beach aesthetics.  I couldn't have been happier when the company contacted me to select a few outfits for styling.  This outfit is a dream--the crop top with high-waisted, skinny jeans paired with black ankle boots helps the legs look longer.  The top has a lovely vintage-inspired floral print with a peplum silhouette and crossover back strap detailing. The pants are high-waisted jean leggings, or what many companies shorten to "jeggings," and are a deep black with the signature back pocket Hollister stitching.  To accessorize, I added a wide-brimmed, black fedora, round sunnies, and some of my fave jewelry pieces.  I know school is starting for most students this month. To you, I wish you the best and I'm sorry.  My classes start on the 31st.  Good luck to us all.  Xoxo, Shelly

  1. Shelly! You are so gorgeous!
    I love this outfit - and absolutely believe you should use your sway with Hollister to tell them to stock in Australia!
    I am particularly in love with this top, and endlessly jealous of your hair!
    I am so glad you came and commented on my Blog because I am just so in love with yours now!!

    1. Kelsey, you are amazing, straight up, girl! I will definitely use my clout to get Hollister to stock everything Down Under :) They offer online but I'm not sure how expensive that overseas shipping gets. Thanks for the kind words & I love yours too!

  2. I love the pattern of that top.

    Hollister has definitely improved since many years ago. I remember it only being worn by middle schoolers full of clothes with their branding, but I think now they produce many nice 'classic' pieces (that still fit their beachy aesthetic!).

  14. I remember when I purchased my first Hollister item and I felt so in with the crowd and like you, I shopped there and only there for about a year, I am now expanding my horizons to other brands, most which are cheaper:)
