The Stripey Shirt Dress

I think men’s wear on women was cool, is cool, and always will be cool. I love a shirt dress because there is something effortlessly chic about it. You literally just throw it on! I like the bowler hat because it adds to the menswear theme and I feel like Charlie Chaplin, or Winston Churchill #winwin. These lacey biker shorts add some grunge along with the cherry Docs. This ensemble is ideal for a lazy weekend. Cheers!

The more Gilmore Girls I binge, the more I want to be an Ivy League blue-blood. The risks of mutation, however, brought on by incest is a bit unappealing. I can safely say my Revolutionary War ancestors were not related to the Croatians. Phew! This Tuesday, I was feeling exceptionally preppy, so I wore my gingham banana republic button up and a smart blazer. Tell me I am not the vision of respectableness.

Who says you can’t bring baseball to the office? I actually don’t think anyone has ever said that, but here’s my tribute to the WORLD CHAMPION SF GIANTS while still remaining chic, comfortable, and office apro-pro. This outfit is idiot proof. Ingredients: Billowy tee, midi-skirt, boyfriend blazer – 3 colors, 3 pieces, hashtag: cake.  Each piece is a cotton/spandex blend, making this look almost as comfy as your jammies. I think people think that sweats are the only “comfy” clothes around. This is a lie. This outfit is just as comfy as a hoodie + pair of yoga pants, and it’s redonkulously cool. #saynotosweats #gogiants

First time wearing this color blocked Tuxedo style blazer from the Peter Pilotto collection at Target. I did get quite a few compliments on it! Good stuff compliments are. These tuxedo striped pants were from Old Navy last spring and I quite like the stripe detailing with the style of the jacket – my take on “men’s wear.” I live in these booties by Sam Edelman! I wear them with goodness knows everything! Good news, these blouses are currently available at Old Navy and they are mighty comfy, inexpensive but quite classy. I snatched up 3. I need 10.
