borrowed from the boys

{J.Crew blazer (this version on super sale!), Hollister button-up (chic look-a-like here), Zara denim, J.Crew Valentina heels, ASOS tie (girly version here), SEE sunglasses c/o, J. Crew corsage (on my lust list)}

I'm a sucker for menswear- there I said it- if ever I'm at an outfit loss menswear is an interesting and fun way for me to play with fashion, not to mention easy. The key is incorporating small feminine touches like a red pout, a matching corsage on your blazer lapel or even a bright yellow manicure! A severe Scott Disick-y hair part, bold mirrored sunglasses and a mismatched set of plaid and polka dots bring this look together and dare I say- one of my favorite 'borrowed from the boys' look to date. 

So give it to me straight- love it or leave it?

  6. I love menswear inspired looks and that blazer could not have fit you more perfectly! Loving the flower and the bright manicure to keep things somewhat girly. :)
