Here’s a little secret – I love wearing men’s shirts and jeans! Not all of their shirts and jeans, just some of them. When I was younger I used to wear my brother’s shirts sometimes, and I would wear my daddy’s jeans quite often. The fit was more comfortable and the baggy look was popular during those days. Then I went through a stage where I didn’t want to wear anything but women’s clothing. Now I’m back in my menswear stage, but I mix and match it with women’s clothing to give it a more feminine feel.
I’m wearing a men’s H&M collar shirt and it is currently on sale for $9.99! Of course the black and white colors attracted me to the shirt, but the pattern of the shirt is what stood out the most.
I paired my H&M button up shirt with some homemade shorts. I have literally been cutting off every pair of jeans in my closet. I’m obsessed with cutting, and I’m running out of jeans…someone schedule an intervention for me soon, please! For my shoes, I am wearing my Aldo off-white pumps (currently sold-out). I wanted to wear an ankle bracelet (haven’t owned one in years but now I want one again) so I turned one of my thick, chain necklaces into one. It’s over-the-top and gaudy – just what I was going for. My purse is an old accessory I picked up from Forever 21 years ago.
This fashion thing is not only limited to clothing that is made for your gender. If you see a fashion item that wasn’t made for you but you like it, make it work.
Have a safe Memorial Day weekend! And while you’re eating barbecue or whatever, tell a friend to check out my blog….it would make me blush! LOL
