23: Macho man

Bowler hat: Goorin. Vest: Old Navy. Coat: Tulle. Newsboy hat, shirt, and jeans: Urban. Earrings: Haute Keys. Tie: Belt from dress. Boots: Frye.

This began as a, “Let’s pair two plaids together again!” moment and evolved from there. I took the tie from my dress because I’ve been wanting to wear a tie for days and for some reason Andy only has a bright red striped one? I could’ve sworn he had more. Anyway. I’ve always had a penchant for menswear and the structure that it adds to an outfit. Also, it’s fun to dress like a dude. When I was in high school I would sometimes wear a dress shirt, slacks and suspenders to school. There was this one girl that it always got a reaction from, she would slap her forehead and shout, “Where do you SHOP?” and I’d laugh and say the thrift store (which is where I did most of my shopping as I had no money). I wasn’t always so inspired though, sometimes I would wear a CK shirt and jeans all week.

I love Jess of Stylepint’s adorable take on menswear inspired outfits, she also cued me in to this great post by The Style Blogger.

Oh, and I made a bow tie out of a scarf my Mom gave me:

The things I do while my kids nap…
