Nothing beats a crisp boyfriend shirt for a casual summer outfit. The comfort and the abundant amount of room to breathe in this staple makes it an impossibility for me to not reach into his closet and grab one to wear for a day of spending time outside. I have been stealing shirts out of my boyfriend’s wardrobe for a while now, but nothing ever seems to fit the way I want it to (seeing that he is about 7 inches taller than me and quite a bit wider). When I saw this shirt at Zara, I knew that my days of closet-scavenging were over: this shirt has all the breezy goodness of his, but the fit in the shoulder and around the middle is much more flattering for the female physique.
And as for the shoes: I couldn’t really bring myself to go full out with the army trend in the form of army surplus jackets or shorts because I know that my style is too girly for a piece like that to have any kind of longevity in my closet, but once I spotted these shoes at Zara I immediately thought it would be a bit of a more feminine way to incorporate it into my wardrobe. Lace-up, peep-toe and canvas, I think they are a fun and subtle take on it. I also really like that the heels are mid-height: I walked around downtown all night in them and my feet did not get sore at all.
P.S. Isn’t my boyfriend getting good at the photo-taking? So proud of him!
