Menswear inspired…or just actual menswear?

 I have been in search of the perfect “boyfriend” jeans.  I have a couple that I like ok, but mainly it’s because they are so darn comfortable it’s hard not to like them!  But flattering?  Not so much.  I snagged this pair at a thrift store for $7, and really wasn’t sure what they were.  Boyfriend jeans?  No, they say “relaxed”.  Finally, it hit me why I couldn’t figure it out.  They are mens jeans, that were accidentally marked and put in the women’s section.  So, they are quite literally “boyfriend” jeans.  That is…if I had a tiny boyfriend.  Thankfully, I don’t 🙂

Then, these ADORABLE little oxfords came in the mail from Zulily the other day for Maya, so it was a menswear kind of day 🙂Blog 7FAM Boyfriend Zara Striped Tee Timberland Loafers-1 Blog 7FAM Boyfriend Zara Striped Tee Timberland Loafers-2 Blog 7FAM Boyfriend Zara Striped Tee Timberland Loafers-3Thought I’d add a little femininity with this vintage flower lariat necklace.
