Let’s hear it for the boysssssssss… Section… For clothes…

Honestly the only place that I’ve been shopping lately is the Men’s section of Target and Thrift Stores (all sections – cause I’m a Thrift-Whore)(I really like the term Thrift-Whore).  I don’t know if it’s the present state of women’s apparel or if I’m just really getting into the men’s wear trend?  All I know is that I constantly want to wear a button-up, oxfords, and a bow-tie.

/-/ Costume For The Day \-\

– Thrifted navy button-up shirt from the men’s department – buttoned all the way up

– Thrifted cotton-knit over-sized boyfriend cardigan with actual wooden buttons (It’s missing one button – I still have it – I just have yet to re-sew it on).  This sweater is amazing – unfortunately it kept throwing up little cotton-pills onto my black pants all day.  I used a lint roller like 18 times that day.

– Black skinny Levis that are a bit too big and gap in the waist, or show off my butt-crack when I bend over.

– Maroon/black buffalo check scarf

– Gold bar stud-earrings

– Antique suede oxford shoes that I assume were brown once (Though, I never had them when they were) and have now turned an olivey-green with sun-exposure

– Stripey ankle socks that you could see between my pants & shoes

/-/ Not Pictured \-\

– Beautiful new jacket from the men’s department of Target.  It’s a twofer: green canvas body with black faux-leather arms.  It also has a sherpa-lined hood for extra soft-i-tude ^_^
