From My Boyfriend's Closet- Hugo Boss Shirt

While life here has been a little hectic, as it seems to be for many of you, it hasn't been all work and no play. I really had a great week meeting a few of the local bloggers from around town. On Wednesday, I met up with Diya from the blog In Her Stilettos for a local swimsuit fashion show. After the show we headed downtown to Halcyon for make your own s'mores and chit chat. Unfortunately, I somehow lost the pictures from that night and have nothing to show you...sorry! I'm going to try to convince her to go back with me so I can snap a few photos of the indoor s'mores set up. (And to eat them too!) It was brilliant!

On Thursday, Diya took me to the Ladies Who Lunch which was set up by Grechen from the New to ATX blog. It was here I also met Sandhya from Livin Wide, Ashley from Hello Hauteness and Anslee, a local designer, singer and photographer. (And once again, no pictures as to living proof I was there...oh well, I had fun anyway!) I loved meeting all the lovely ladies and hopefully will have lunch with them again. So busy, yes, but enjoying my summer so far as well.

Now onto the outfit...
I was getting ready to take a bag of donations to Goodwill and was adding to the sack the shirts I know my boyfriend wasn't interested in for whatever reason and decided that this Hugo Boss that he rejected would be a lovely addition to my side of our shared closet...

I love the print! Sort of a graphic leaf, it's quite mesmerizing. It's big of course, but not quite long enough to use as a shirt dress, or at least I'm not that brave.
(Note to self...find more interesting background.)
A black mini solves this problem, and really, it pairs well with most things in my closet. The addition of the belt and boots gave the whole look a bit of edge, and I stayed with the contrasting color scheme by adding my favorite (and only) white bag and bracelet.

Ladies, how do you wear your men's wear? Men, how do you like sharing your clothes? Just wondering...

Ah, I envy you for indulging in so many blogger meetups in such a short amount of time - it sounds like a blast!

Loving the way you did menswear. I like to choose one piece of menswear and surround it with all sorts of femininity to really glam it up. By the way, I kind of need your shoes - tres fab!! :)

This looks great on you! I wear my husband's socks. That's about it haha.

And I was in Sacramento, CA. Have fun in New Orleans!

yay you're finally making use of that camera and tripod i see. love the outfit! the leaf print looks great against the simple black skirt. and i know what you mean, a black skirt is a life saver for tops/tunics that aren't quite long enough to cover the goods haha. and i prefer a skirt to having to wear leggings because it's more dressy. yay for olive pants! i agree, they can be worn with everything. they are a neutral colour after all :)

Marz said...

Wow, I wish I could share my bf's clothes! His are just wayyyyy too big on me to ever look fashionable. I love the shirt though, it looks great on you!

gleenn said...

no problem about the background. Honestly, I prefer more white backgrounds, it brings the focus on the outfit. And I love this look! :)

What a great outfit, especially with the shoes. I am just as bad with my background, how much do you love my brick wall! I have tried to be a bit more creative lately but I just dont have the time!
