HEY darlings!!! Happy hump day to you all!! I hope your week has been off to a great start. It seems like this week has been flying by, or maybe it’s because I extended my weekend a bit :-). I didn’t go out on the town or party in the club for my birthday, but the weekend did wear me out a bit (guess I am getting old, lol). Sunday was a crazy busy day, as I started the day trying to get my dead battery replaced in my car 🙁 so that I could get to church on time, went to church, and then had some of my favorite ladies over to just laugh talk, eat, and have a good time. Let’s just say I am still recovering, but feeling very full from the love I received from my loved ones (and y’all too!) through out the weekend!
I won’t bore y’all with my long story of car troubles and battery replacement, but let me just say that by the time I got a new battery and my car working again, it was 9:10 and church starts at 9:30! lol I don’t know the last time I got dressed in 10 minutes, if ever!!
(taking blog photos while talking to my boyfriend on the phone…multitasking, lol)
I bought these pants from the men’s section of a thrift store a few weeks ago, got them dry cleaned, but hadn’t wore them yet. They were perfect for throwing on in my hurried state; I’m completely smitten!! I haven’t worn this shirt since this post, which was well over a year ago, and of course what birthday weekend is complete without new birthday shoes :-). I was in so much of hurry that day that I left the house without any rings on :-(. I felt almost naked (y’all know I love a ring party!). Is there an item(s) that you feel you must leave the house wearing or you feel naked?
I LOVE baggy/loose-fitting jeans and pants and adore the boyfriend style jean and pants! However, when I try on women’s bottoms that are supposed to have a loose fit, they still fit my hips and derriere pretty tight, which defeats the purpose, which is when I love menswear most. I’ve been buying shorts from the men’s department for years, but have recently been drawn to trying on pants and jeans from the mens department as well, and they give me just the right amount of looseness that I want, and these pants do just that! They are a light linen/cotton blend so I shall definitely be wearing them a lot this Summer.
I’ve found that the key to my wearing men’s pieces is mixing them with feminine items, fabrics, and silhouettes, as I am not a fan of walking around looking like a dude. Do you shop in the men’s (or boy’s) department? If so, what are your favorite things to buy, and how do you make menswear work for your style?
