grandpa chic

{Hollister cardigan, J. Crew top, high waisted jeans c/o Gap, vintage Coach satchel, SM boots, glass c/o Bonlook}

As much as I love sequins, suede and all things over the top sometimes it's nice to dress down, and there's nothing better than a comfortable and easy to put together look. This outfit took me from campus to retail therapy in no time- hence the school boy meets grandpa theme. I concluded a grandpa chic look was incomplete without a great pair of faux lenses, so I pulled out these two toned stunners from Bonlook that I scored at a Wikifashion meetup, and they obvi brought it to a whole new level.  
 Grandpa chic at it's finest! How do you guys do the GCL (Grandpa Chic Look)?


  1. I really love this actually. I think the casual, understated looks don't get enough love. I would totally wear this!

  2. hey girl:) your bag is pretty awesome!

  3. Grandpa chic is perfect for describing this outfit! You are too cute, and I honestly dress like this when I'm lazing around at home (except my hair is super disheveled)
