If I Were a Boy

Lately I've been absolutely enamoured by menswear inspired clothing. I've been increasingly inspired by those really cool girls who pull off the androgynous look so well. The key: masculine pieces, tempered by very feminine accents.

I've been known to wear men's watches (complete with plenty of links removed), my dad's old-timey Dobbs hats (complete with feather), and the more masculine shoe, but here's what it has been coming together to look like lately.

Jeans: Levi's, Shirt: Gap, Sweater: thrifted, Shoes: Macy's

Plus, I've been obsessively looking for the perfect penny loafer, and now need to craft ways to wear them... a lot. My twitter followers know I was handed dimes to stuff in them at a family party!
