i dig menswear on women.
clean lines, masculine sexiness…it makes a statement and it’s oddly feminine if done correctly.
as much as i push my love for long skirts, a great pair of trousers or well-fitting jeans always wins my heart.
i cannot wait until the fall weather descends upon us.
this heat is killing me. i don’t like hot weather at all.
it’s even making my wardrobe choices difficult! work is hard enough to dress for, now i gotta deal with the heat?!
so i continue to wear skirts or dresses, even though i’d rather be wrapped up and cozy in a pair of navy blue, high waist, wool pants. maybe a lovely vintage blouse and a chunky, cable knit sweater.
summer is so rude.
besides the heat, there are other reasons i don’t care for skirts (usually shorter ones)…
1. i don’t like my legs. i think i have cankles and people/pop culture make them seem so disgusting. i’m super self-conscious about showing my legs in public. so much so, that i just started wearing skirts and dresses, more often, this year. bah!
2. i’m the kind of girl who would leave the bathroom with her skirt tucked into the back of her undies.
3. i stood up the other day, while wearing a skirt, and the skirt was lodged in between my butt cheeks. (that’s almost as bad as skirt tucked into undies. almost.)
4. by the end of the day, i just can’t wait to get out of a skirt or dress, throw on a pair of pants and not worry about flashing someone.
bottom line: the man in me loathes skirts and dresses.
blouse – vintage, for sale in the shop!
vest – thrifted, h&m
trousers – anthropologie
