One of the guys

I was thinking of my childhood when I put together today's outfit. I was a tomboy growing up, always running around and playing sports with the boys. Anything they can do, I can do better. No false modesty here =P

Today's outfit is inspired by the quintessential country club outfit for guys -- sports coat with khakis, but with a girly twist of course. I'm loving my new Banana Republic wrap, but I find myself having trouble concentrating at work because I just want to lean back and take a nap haha. How do you like to tone down masculine looks?
blazer: theory
belt: Express
pants: Express
bag: Chanel
flats: Mossimo

  1. I am more like a girly girl. My Mom always put skirt/dress on me when I was a little girl. I do like your outfit (especially the Theory blazer). I am drooling over your Chanel bag :)

  2. I was a total tomboy too growing up but I had to wear skirts and dresses as a uniform. When it comes to masculine style clothing, I add a feminine touch with color, ruffles, or other little details to soften the look. I'm recently loving adding brooches to blazers for some extra zing! =)

  5. LOVE the wide legged look in your pants!! I too, love toning down the manly look with a splash of feminine color.

    You remind me of a Ralph Lauren model!
