Monday

38. embrace the men's department

after hearing from a friend that my darling róisín was featured in the now month old january issue of elle uk giving out some of her very own personal style tips, i immediately planned my whole weekend around a visit to the bookstore for a chai & the hopes that they might
still have a copy left.

of course, i took the opportunity to test out one of the many menswear inspired looks that have been mulling about in my head as of late, only to read that one of róisín's tips was just about that - incorporating menswear looks into your everyday wardrobe for a
"really avant-garde daywear look".

i do love how róisín & i are seemingly always on the same page...

black boyfriend blazer, aa winter leggings, prada inspired nude lace blouse, crown vintage heeled oxfords, bowler hat found in the drama closet at school, handmade bow ring, mum's vintage watch & beyond retro tote from stevie.

for the rest of róisín's tips click.
