One of the Boys | Thrift Style Thursday

September 3, 2015

Hello, friends, Happy Thursday!  And hip-hip-hooray for Thursday, too, because it has already been a long week!  Phew!  Is it just me or are things getting a little crazy already??  At least the weather has finally started to cool down around here!

Today’s theme is “Menswear” brought to us by Brittany of The B Life.  Her idea was to either wear a menswear inspired look OR thrift for a man in our life.  I totally think it would have been fun to pick an outfit out for Derek, but he doesn’t let me shop for him, and we have both been so busy lately, it wasn’t in the cards either way.  BUT I do love mixing in the occasional men’s or boy’s pieces in my wardrobe, so I knew I had that covered!

For today’s look, I chose a “Jurassic Park” shirt from the men’s section at Target and my favorite thrifted plaid shirt from the men’s section at a thrift store in Utah.  The jeans are also boyfriend style jeans with a more relaxed fit, though definitely not actual men’s jeans (too much junk in the trunk for that)!

I do love mixing masculine and feminine elements, though, so I chose to add some fun oxford heels to the look.  Oh, and the ultra girly band-aid helps, too!  ;)

      Thank you, thank you!! I couldn’t NOT get this shirt when I saw it in the men’s section at Target, it’s one of my fave 90’s movies, too! I even went and saw it in 3D for the 30th anniversary!! ;)
      I do love mixing masculine and feminine trends, especially with my short hair, it just feels extra fun to me! Thanks so much!! :)

    There is just something about an oversized flannel that feels amazing doesn’t it? It reminds me of my teen years and stealing my boyfriend’s (now husband’s) shirts! I LOVE the shoes too. So cute!

      Yes, there is nothing as comfortable/comforting as an oversized flannel shirt!! I hope the trend never completely goes away haha! Thanks!! :)
