one of the boys.

Thank god for menswear because without it we wouldn't have menswear inspired womenswear. After finally realised that I never truly outgrew my inner tomboy at the age of 10 I've noticing just how much of my wardrobe is pulled from menswear - the button up shirts, loafers, aviators, oversized sweaters, chinos, caps. Having a revelation about my personal style and my collection of menswear inspired womenswear (which also explains why I'm allergic to heels). Maybe Jack and I have more in common style wise than I initially thought. Over the last few months I've been bombarded with terms like wingtip, break/ no break, ticket pocket, unstructured, peak/ notched lapels that I feel like when Jack talks about his tailored suits he's speaking a foreign language. Who would have thought menswear could be so complicated? 

For your first foray into menswear inspired womenswear, you can always count on J Crew to deliver. Impeccable tailoring, luxe fabrics, styles taken from the boys but with feminine sensibility. I can't rave on enough about my boy shirt which is one of the best purchases I've made all year and cost me all of $85. As far as shoes goes, I'm currently obsessed with Tom Gunn. I've always had a thing for petrol green (in my opinion the most underrated colour) and I love seeing someone putting this hue to good use. And in other breaking news, here I am finding myself attracted to yet another leopard print accessory. Something's happening to me!
