Elbow patches

Elbow patches top c/o Lovely Wholesale / Denim shorts from Forever 21

The half-tucked shirt look is kind of strange, isn't it. I mean, I'm actively trying to look a bit sloppy. And there's a very thin line between "effortlessly chic" and "I just rushed out of the washroom and forgot to fully tuck in my shirt". Elbow patches on a casual shirt are a weird pair too. Since when did elbow patches, which are typically associated with dorky academics, become a style accent? Next thing you know, they're gonna be telling us that tops with pocket protectors are trendy. Aren't we done with this obsession with "geek-chic" yet?

  4. Half-tucked shirts remind me of Kate Moss and her perfectly imperfect vibe. Totally feeling that from this outfit - very cute but chic! I really like how casual-cool this look is. The elbow patches are a cute detail :]

  21. Love the elbow patches! They remind me of mens outfits in the 50's, with the oversized sweater and button down top.

  22. Hi Sabrina,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! Yes I agree with the half-tucked look looking semi-sloppy. I find it looks so cute on models but not so much on me. It only looks good when I stand up and don't move.

  23. Haha, loved that last paragraph! Too true. I am a huge fan of elbow patches, especially the love heart ones (you know, the wearing your heart on your sleeve thing?) it's a bit corny, I know. Still cute ;P You always look so flawless! and your ponytail is perfect x

  29. Gorgeous casual summertime look! I adore elbow patches, there's just something about being sorta old-fashioned/geeky that makes you feel a little more sophisticated (in a paradoxical way)! Love the shorts as well!
