BOYISH CHARM

February 25, 2012




{thrifted GAP denim jacket, thrifted leopard button up, thrifted striped top, H&M faux suede overalls, 
f21 thigh high socks, brown boots via Taiwan, leather bag via Korea, jade & leopard bracelets via Grandma}

Thank goodness for the sun, it reminds me that there are other things to wear besides jeans, leggings and plaid (oh my oh!) The surge of good weather matches my newfound surge of good energy! Well, the sun and sleep, lots and lots of good ol' fashioned sleep. It seems that things that start with S makes me happy like summer, singing, sunrise and sunset, Scandinavia, Santa Clause, Scramble with Friends, the list goes on and on.

Anyways, when I do menswear it's really more like "little 5-year-old boyswear," as exemplifies by this outfit. Firstly, the overalls, no matter how soft the faux suede is, automatically takes 10 years off my age, making me 9 years old. I actually bought the burgundy+gray striped top because it reminded me of what toddlers wear, but why that would make me run towards the register is something I continue to question myself even to this day. So that downgrades me to the 3-4 year old age group, so let's round that to 3.5 years old. With the addition of the thrifted GAP denim jacket, a classic staple no matter your age group, it adds about a good 1.5 years making me at an estimated age of 5. Thank god for my boots, my bracelets and my obsessive addiction to leopard, my only saving girly graces in this outfit. Although I wouldn't mind being 5 years old again...and a boy.
