OOTD: Too Legit To Quit

ootd_too legit to quit7

As an 11 year old I received some sage advice from my uncle Stanley, or as most people know him, MC Hammer! In his wise words he rapped said I’m goin’ for all that I can get, kickin’ at the top cause I’m too legit to quit…sing!  With his dope rhymes a seed was sown and to this day when I’m doubting myself either at work, on the blog or life in general I turn to his fabulous genius and remember that I am indeed too legit to quit!

All jokes aside I saw this top online and I knew being a ‘tween when bad 90s rap was at it’s peak I just had to get it. After some hacking away on the neckline to bring it from the 90s all the way back into the 80s, with a touch of the Jennifer Beale’s, I’m in lurrrrve!

I initially bought it with the intention of wearing it to the gym but once I adjusted the neckline I feel like this is way too good to just sweat in and it needs to be seen in a proper ensemble. I kinda like the look of a dressed up sweater – dare I say am I starting to accept “sport luxe”? I doubt it! I think the 80s vibe definitely helps!

So tell me, what wise words from former rappers to you live by?

  1. See now this outfit is everything I’ve ever needed in life! Hammer-effing-time! Looove the slogan and the slouchy neckline too- how did you cut it boo? Every time I try and do it to my tees it doesn’t hang right! Did you cut straight across or in a slant? ♥
