I love the menswear trend but find that it often doesn't mix well with me. Don't get me wrong, I think it looks great on everyone else but I never feel like "me" when I try to replicate a similar look that has inspired me. That's when I realized I was going it all wrong - I needed to add in some color. I'm good with black and white and I'm not too shabby with color but neutrals (which I feel a lot of menswear looks are composed of) have never been my thing. So, I added in a jolt of hot pink and I was ready to go!
Do you ever have a hard time getting rid of a certain item of clothing even though it doesn't fit very well? I am so in love with these pants but they're about two sizes big for me... I guess I don't really think about it when I wear them as they just feel flowy and comfortable. The truth became painfully obvious in these photos. I guess they just don't photograph well? I'm making excuses here but I'm really just not ready to give them up. I shall make them work!
I decided that I'm embracing messy hair from here on out. I'm determined to grow my hair out - still on the fence about continuing to grow my bangs out - and I feel like I need to give myself a pep talk about that "inbetween" stage and thereafter. I don't do messy hair well but I'm trying to go with the flow.
And just for fun...
Can you tell I didn't take my own photos? That guy of mine is always making me giggle!
