boyish charm.

Tibi singlet, J Brand chinos, Superga sneakers, Kate Sylvester cap, Roc Eyewear sunglasses, Andeol backpack.

So it turns out after all these years of exposure to fashion, I'm still a tomboy at heart. I purchased the original Tibi staple cami (the cut looks awfully similar to Camilla & Marc and Nicholas) for its absolute easy and simplicity and wore it for the first time with high waisted shorts. Walking down Botany Road and having trucks horn you isn't really the most flattering experience and did little for my self esteem (contrary to what some men may think). Surprisingly I felt a little exposed and found myself hiking up the straps countless times, though this would probably explain why I feel most comfortable in muscle singlets and boxy tees. For my second wear I decided to mix it back with more boyish pieces - navy chinos, sneakers and a baseball cap (the same one I eyed at the Kate Sylvester runway earlier this year) and transforming it into a look that feels quintessentially me. You know how I said you'd have to bear with me until I started sharing looks that were closer to what I wear on a daily basis? Well here I am, in my element.

  1. Girl, you pull of the tomboy look so well. And, you put me to shame with my own KS cap (I got the pale grey) - you own it! x
