So, this post is my waaaay overdue contribution to last week’s style challenge: Borrowed from the Boys. Better late than never, right? I think its pretty safe to say that my general style is about as far away from menswear as one can get. Let’s face it, I’m girly. I had no idea how to pull off this week’s last week’s challenge so I decided to go for a literal interpretation and actually borrow something from my boyfriend’s closet. I helped myself to a classic white button down and pieced things together from there. Not quite sure if I pulled it off, but it was certainly fun to try!

Be sure to check out the other gals that participated in the challenge: Meghan, Angie, Santina, Adiel, Nic, Jade, Kristian, and Kate!

    I love this look! I never feel sure if I can pull this off either, I’m always in girly dresses/skirts 🙂 But you did it fabulously!! I always love seeing how you put an outfit together…

    Rebecca this may not e your thing but you look great! I bag is perfect because of it’s structure and you should keep that shirt… just sayin 😉

    Love the shirt on you, pal! Looks so chic! It’s cool to see you in something that is such a divergence from your well defined feminine style.
