Featuring my new oxfords! When I got them, I had a hard time figuring out what to wear with them. And then I remembered this picture from The Sartorialist. I loved the simplicity of a blazer, sweater, boyfriend jeans, and oxfords. Since everything was baggy and a bit too boyfriendy, I wanted to add a feminine touch -- a big in-your-face flower! If you didn't know by now, I love loose, baggy clothes. Sometimes it can look too messy or too boyish so I usually make sure to add a little something feminine in case I get mistaken for a guy, which is highly possible if I ever got a pixie cut because I look just like my dad... :/

  9. I love your hair styled this way. Combined with the flower, you definitely offset any masculine elements of this outfit. Just the right balance :)

  15. I don't understand how you could possibly look not-feminine with that ravishing smile! At any rate, I love the simplicity of boyfriend-y outfits and how they look on a woman's body. Great look!
