Menswear Inspired

Just about every individual has a certain pattern of dressing, what I like to think of as ‘dressing norms’. I love my dressing norms, but every now and then I like to spice up my fashion palette by wearing an ensemble that is completely different, outside the box.
I generally gravitate toward feminine looks, vibrant colors, and delicate details. But that only represents one facet of my persona ;) I’m a woman of many facets!
I wore this look on a date night this past week, it felt amazing to step outside 'my box'. 
This looks is total menswear inspiration, I enjoyed mixing it up immensely.
Side note: I combed out my mane and rolled and tucked it with hair pins to achieve this improvised faux bob ;)
Please share, how often do you create opportunities to step outside of your dressing norms, and do you enjoy it as much as I do?

  5. It's nice to change (your personal style) up once in a while. I tend to wear menswear inspired pieces sometimes. Love that jacket and the grey boots are gorgeous! <3 Happy weekend!
