menswear

{thrifted blazer, H&M button up shirt, M+O shorts, GAP clutch, Chinese Laundry pumps}

Ever since I started this blog- mostly showcasing my daily outfit selections- I have become one of those bloggers who never does smile, in pictures at least. And when I do crack a smile it seems weird and looks unnatural- to me (as opposed to mean mugging the cameraman I guess?!). Can you tell I'm not happy with the full body pics??!!

Anyways- rant over- I did love the closeup shots of this bf inspired outfit pick! I am in awe of the menswear trend and this little take on it definitely has my girly influence injected- pink shorts, leopard pumps and loads of gold jewelry, not to mention fun mint nails

  1. Love this menswear look...I have tried it before and feel like I failed miserably...it ended up being really girlie looking, go figure.
    You have mastered it perfectly here...very adrogynous (sp?) but still beautiful and fem.
    LOVE those pumps.

  12. I love this look! I'm so obsessed with menswear recently. You look great. I'm also one of those people who never smile. I just look incredibly awkward.
