Mixing Trends: Fancy + Grunge

I know, I know. SF, Cincy. SF, Cincy. Where am I really?! I'm still in San Francisco, but these posts are coming to you from the good ole Heartland. This is the last set we took before I left. 

Last week I showed you this sheer open blouse in a Fancy Friday Fashion. Today, we're returning so we can explore another, 150% different look. 

Everyone values comfort. As I've told you before, comfort is what I'm striving for at all times. & in the hot summer months, nothing is more comfortable than jean shorts & a muscle tee. However, there is also nothing more grungy. So, I decided to have a hand at mixing these two trends. My outfit is a total grunge ensemble (in fact, I wore the same thing - without the blouse - to go canoeing last week). I love how adding just one staple piece can bring up my classiness level.

What do you think? Is it so confusing that people just won't question it? Does it work? Does it not? Have other ideas? How would you style this blouse? As always, I'm sending you love. & PS, right after we took these photos, I donated 8 inches of my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths! Surprise! If I can sucker someone into taking pictures for me out here in SF I'll show ya :D
