Happy weekend, my friends! Today I am taking some fashion risks, so don’t write me off if this one is not your cup of tea. ;D
Since my zodiac sign says I should be adventurous, I naturally inclined to try explore and try new things, from food to clothing. I am that friend you have who doesn’t like to watch the same movie again, or ordering the same thing from the same restaurant all the time, or wearing the same outfit twice in a week…fine, we do order the same food again and again, but that is because the boys won’t try others!
Back to outfit! You’ve probably heard of the term “unisex” dressing one too many times, but have you seen hybrid dressing much besides the carnival costume? When I saw this shirt online, I was intrigued! When I tried it on, it looked even better than I had expected: on one side it is a boyish shirt; on the other side, it looks like a tennis skirt with awesome pleats.
There are infinite ways to style this shirt, with shorts, shirts, culotte, skinny pants, long skirts…all depends on the bottoms and accessories, it can be very boy-like, or super feminine. For today’s look, I paired with tweed shorts and a pair of clogs to enhance the boyish side. Heathered camp sock echoes with the short, also creates an illusion of short boots. A butterfly collar and jewel-tone bag are added to get some balance, and here we are, a pretty androgynous look, no?
A little story about the photo shoot: as we were scouting out a nice spot along the canal, a girl approached me wanting to take a photo of my outfit. That was a first! She looked like she was going to have her picture taken as well, so I asked what was she doing? Can you guess what she said? She turned out to be a fellow style blogger from the DC area! Meet sweet and stylish Tasha from the Glossier, folks! That girl knows her way around camera! 🙂
Thank you so much for reading! Wish you a wonderful weekend and see you in my next post!
