Shirt: H&M (borrowed from my boyfriend)
Shoes: Mossimo Supply Co. (Target)
Sunglasses: Ray Ban (borrowed from my boyfriend)
It’s no secret that I love looks with a touch of boyish charm, but this time I didn’t just look to the boys for inspiration. I actually reached into the closet of my favorite man (my boyfriend) as I got dressed before setting out to pick up a few ingredients for dinner. When it comes to button downs, I don’t like anything too proper (or ironed for that matter), so I stick to those with a relaxed fit, which makes borrowing from the boyfriend a perfect option. I can’t lie; I’ve had my eye on this shirt for a while. The sleeves were a little long for me, but once I rolled them up the shirt fit exactly as I hoped. The rest of the look came together in about two minutes. I immediately reached for this fitted denim skirt, which balanced out the roomy top. This necklace would have been a perfect addition to this basic look, but with it safely stowed away in Portland, I decided to add another pint with striped espadrilles. I think my recent interest in mixing prints is an effort to compensate for my lack of accessories…a different way to add interest. To finish it off, I turned to my boyfriend again and borrowed these olive green and tortoise sunglasses.
