boyish charms

I am known to smuggle clothes out of boys’ closets or peruse the racks of collared shirts and quirky bowties for something to incorporate among my girly possessions. Often times I find myself favoring the boy version of a wardrobe staple over the girls – tops, sweaters ect – and it is so fun to make it my own. I bought this floral number from the men’s section at TJ Maxx and there are a million ways I could wear this thing. I fell for the bold color and prairie style flowers that, although it isn’t the manliest choice, it fits my taste. Just tie the longer ends, add a high-waist pair of shorts, some bold accessories plus snail pin and this top is transformed (in the best way possible!).










{Ralph Lauren shirt; UO shorts; Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes; J Crew belt and bracelet; vintage cuff and bangle; Moschino snail pin}
