Tomboy Chic

oxford (Gap Men's), shorts (J.Crew shocking pink), belt (J.Crew), hat (HM, just bought THIS in Natural and L O V E ), chucks (Converse with a side of my daughter's beads), watch (Tag Heuer), bracelets (Jennifer Zeuner, Crewcuts how cute is THISStella & Dot), shades (Ray Ban), ring (Anna Beck)
Sorry I'm a little late to the party today gang; however, last night was spent with NKOTB, Boyz to Men, and 98 Degrees...having distinct memories of leaning against the Murray Middle School gym wall with Brooke and Tiff hoping to get asked to dance to, "The End of the Road."  Alas, it ultimately ended up in a trip to the concession stand for hot dogs while the more advanced gals made out on the dance floor!  Needless to say, my girlfriends and I had an absolute blast last night and it's amazing how those lyrics are like riding a bike--come back to you even when you haven't sang to them in ages--as did the dance moves! 
Now onto the rig.  I posted this one while in the dressing room at Gap on Instagram and I gotta say, since swiping this men's Oxford from Gap, I have been more inclined to shop the men's sections lately (if you remember, I already make it a habit to tackle the Kid's Section, too).   Just a little reminder to broaden your horizons a little while shopping and maybe break out of your normal routine--you never know what gems you may find (and more often than not, mens/boys are less expensive)!  Alright gang, make it a good one!

  1. You know, I saw a men's button up shirt as I was walking by The Gap that I liked, but didn't have time to stop in. Imma going to have to do so now, because that shirt is dang cute.

  2. Super jealous of your concert, that sounds so fun!! Loving your pink shirts.

  4. I love this look and holy smokes am I jealous of you! NKOTB! 98 Degrees! I'm glad you had so much fun!!

  5. Sounds like we had exactly the same experience at middle school dances-haha! I love this look...and now I need to track down your hat and ring :)

  6. LOVING how preppy this is! I've been so impressed and surprised by how trendy and absolutely AMAZING white converse look in so many outfits - you really pulled it off here. Who would have known Converse would come back? And they totally work for both a more preppy look AND a more punky one if you wanted to. Clearly I need to go out and get myself a pair...

  7. I love your casual style & outfits & how you combine them with your Converse...

    Have a great day!!!
