Hi everyone! I hope you're all having a fabulous week of chilly fall weather :) So I'm not sure if many of you know, but I love the whole "borrowed from the boys" look, and I often find myself drawn to many menswear inspired pieces. Well, today I literally borrowed from the boys with this adorable t-shirt from the boys section at Aéropostale. I literally died when I saw it and had to have it because who doesn't love a shirt with a bow-tie printed on it? I gave it my own feminine twist by adding the bejeweled collar from the sweater I wore in this post last week, but didn't want to lose the tuxedo look so I added a black and gray blazer. And of course, the perfect addition to a borrowed from the boys look is a good pair of ripped up boyfriend jeans accessorized with some girly pumps and a pop of pink to complete the look. Who else is still internally squealing over how cute this t-shirt is? Good thing it comes in extra small :) Thanks for reading!

  8. I like the pink touch you have added to this look. and yes, children's section often rocks ;) plus usually it's quite cheap too! anyway, this looks like a warm autumn ensemble but your heels give away that the weather over there is not too cold ;)

  11. Thanks Lamey! You should definitely try them out and get a pair :) Great closet staple! xx

  12. Thanks Maiken :) Haha, yes and the prices are always great! It's not terribly cold...can still get away with wearing heels though my toes do get a bit cold! xx

  13. Thanks Debbie :) I took some old jeans I have that are a bit outdated because the cut isn't as slim (and also too big on me now) and just cuffed them up for some make-shift boyfriend jeans! Not sure if you hoard your old clothes like I do, but if so it's totally a trick that works and won't break the bank! xx
