I’ve been borrowing from the boys more than I would care to admit lately. This act of rebellion is a bit out of character for me, seeing as I’ve been twirling since age two – well despite my tragic tom-boy phase, read all about my youthful lapse of judgement here. So for today’s inspiration, I paired boyish charm with menswear silhouette and the essence of Queen B (Blaire Waldorf) for a classic look that straddles gender lines.
Booties: C.wonder (similar here or splurge on these) // Skort: Zara (similar under $25) // Top&Bow: Asos (similar top here or just the bow here) Bag: Coach (with silver hardware here) // Coat: Zara // Sunnies: Karen Walker (similar here) // Lips: Ruby Woo by Mac // Rings: H&M
I don’t know what I did before the Zara skort. I thought this obsession would die when summer ended, but I have just found myself wearing it more and more… and more. It’s the middle of February, yet I still wore my white one over black tights this weekend…. what’s wrong with me? The only reasonable explanation is love, I am head-over-heels for the sassy skort – in black, white or blue. But since I was sick of feeling sporty, (my boyfriend does a cheer & makes fun of me when I wear it) I married my skirt-obsession with tailored pieces and a tuxedo vest to dress it up! What do you think, menswear-chic? Images by Claire Eliza
