Tomboy

November 21, 2012

 
Blazer c/o Shoppalu, Old Navy flares, Rebecca Minkoff bag,
bracelets & necklaces c/o KV BIJOU, earrings c/o Poshlocket
All my life, I’ve always swung between being an extreme tomboy or being a complete girly-girl. I was applying mascara and Lip Smackers lip gloss under my desk in Grade 3, then in Grade 4 I went through this weird phase when I dressed like a particularly schlumpy version of Vanilla Ice. It’s really only been in the past two years that I’ve found a happy medium between the two – I’ve accepted that while I’ll never be one of those girls who will be perfectly coiffed, manicured and done-up, I’ll also always have a soft spot for femme details and silhouettes too. Knowing my happy balance also helps me feel more like myself no matter what I’m wearing, even while channeling a more extreme version of either style. 
This look, of course, is tomboy-heavy. Very ’70s, very menswear-inspired. Touches of always-lovely and elegant jewelry from KV BIJOU, including this stunning rose quartz Pink Lemonade piece, help femme the look up and keep it from toeing full-on manly territory.

    Love it. I'm still working on finding that balance, I guess its all about trial and error until you find what you feel comfortable wearing.

    Your blazer and jeans, I just love them! Your jeans seem to be incredibly comfortable. I heard old navy has some great fit, I should give it a try!

    Absolutely LOVE this look. I have always been so conflicted with my laid-back style and a love for everything girly. My fall wardrobe hunt has been a tweed/menswear style blazer, with elbow patches of course. I haven't been successful as of yet but I'm hopeful!

    I have been a proud jockey tomboy my entire life. I would totally wear this entire outfit. Most people seem to have lost the art in dressing up jeans. I'm glad you have not!
