Just like one of the boys

I'm such fan of the girl meets boy look.  I wouldn't go as far as to call it cross dressing but I can understand how blurry the lines get with certain pieces or entire looks.  The one thing I love about fashion is the opportunity to experiment. To mix things up.  It's like playing adult dress ups!  You can even feel like you take on another identity or life just by pushing the boundaries and dressing differently to your standard day to day.  A personally created alternate reality if you will.  A little bit of effort, creativeness and outside of the box dressing can be a lot of fun don't you think? 

Below are a few of my favourite urban cover ups with a masculine edge.

  7. Loving all the textures. And the skirt - oh I really like that skirt. Aren't you grateful for the cool temperatures so you can still wear such beautiful clothes?

  12. That coat looks super snuggly- it must still be quite cold in Melbourne? Things are starting to cool dramatically here- I am only half looking forward to it!

    1. Yes still cold unfortunately with a few warm(ish) days every now and then. Few and far between for this time of year though :( At least you'll get to break out your gorgeous coats soon! x
