Menswear My Way

I am a girly girl at heart and is always drawn to feminine style.  When I saw this Pin, I really like the colors and the preppy look.  I love how it used menswear pieces but still looks so feminine at the same time.  I could never pull off wearing one of my husband ties' but here's my take of the outfit.

Paisley and Stripes

I have come to realize that I am addicted to pencil skirts in every color and pattern.  I am not even sure how many I own.  I love how they instantly make any of my outfits professional and yet I can still have fun with prints.  

Do you have a prefer cut for skirts?

Graphic Tee

 I wanted to wear this graphic tee but wasn't in the mood to wear jeans.  I liked how the print of this tee sort of mirror these pants.  I have worn these pants only to work and figure by cuffing them and throwing on a denim jacket will make it look more casual.  I really liked how this outfit came together.  

What are some of your tips to make more dressier clothing more casual?

Pink Tweed Jacket 2.0

I talked about in this post about how I totally scored a $20 tweed jacket and then it ripped the first time I wore it.  I wasn't really looking for a new one to replace it but this pretty blazer from White House Black Market really caught my eye.  I liked the pretty fuchsia pink details and the gold threading throughout the blazer.  The blazer has a very classic styling that I can see myself wearing for many years.

Have a great Monday!

Orange Scarf

I don't wear much scarves on this blog but I just adore them.  I just love that they add another level of interest to an outfit.  Take this outfit, if I just wore it plain with the sweater and jeans I think it would've been kind of boring.  You throw on the scarf it just makes it a little more interesting. 

The downside of scarves for me is: 1. I am horrible at tying them.  I know there are some great youtbue videos out there but I can never get them to look as effortlessly as they do on the videos.  2. I have always take them off when I eat and 3. I start to get really hot in about 5 minutes after I put them on.

Are you a fan of scarves?

Mint and Coral

This outfit sort of happened by accident.  I was wearing the sweater and it was a bit chilly so in a haste, I grabbed the blazer.  I wasn't even planning to take an outfit photo but I really like how the colors work together.  I don't use my blazers much on the weekend and I am glad I did in this outfit.

As for the odd angles of the photos, these were taken by my son (who is turning 6 today!).  I can not believe my little boy is no longer little.  I am amazed at how much he has grown and I have learned so much from this little guy.

Happy Thursday!

Patterned Pants

I have been slowly dipping my toes into patterned pants.  Most of the pattern pants I have purchased are pretty basic with 2 colors.  I finally took the plunge and purchased these pattern pants.  They are very comfortable and I have had fun pairing it with safe colors that are in the pants.  I may be a little more daring in the future ...who knows.

True story...I did not even realize my phone cover was the same pattern as my pants until my girlfriend pointed out to me at dinner.  I guess I must really like the pattern.
