'yes i thought so'


<borrowed from the boys>

when it comes to inspiration, it’s fun to take our cue from menswear. classic and polished there’s nothing more refined than a two-piece suit. isn’t it fun to see how men mix and match a basic navy or black suit? the core pieces stay the same, but the shirts and ties change the overall look. and pattern mixing? yes, the men have that going on too. so today, i thought i’d borrow from the boys since i’m trotting out one of my favorite blazers last seen here and here. today, i’ve paired it with a striped shirt and olive green denim. of course, i’m always happy to slip into ballet flats, especially if i have a busy day planned. add a classic handbag and belt and this ootd is complete. don’t you love it when you can steal some style from the fellas?

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

You claim to love her, inside and out, but the only time you call her beautiful is when it’s 3 in the morning and I’ve already turned you down.
