This month, the Fab40s are getting together to style the theme, borrowed from the boys (last month we styled an outfit channeling our childhood pop idols). It was Shelbee’s idea and I think it’s brilliant! Who’d have thought that I would love coming up with an outfit based on boy’s style?! As soon as I knew what the theme would be, I knew I had to borrow Michael’s braces and hat. I had considered wearing one of his shirts too, but after putting on my own red shirt, I knew this one was right.
My other idea was to wear skinny jeans but first, I decided to try these trousers and I just loved the way they looked with the red shirt and braces—not to mention the hat, of course! However, I reckon I’ll be testing out the braces again in a couple of weeks with the skinny jeans and Michael’s shirt lol. Stay tuned for that.
This outfit however, consists of trousers from Jigsaw (bought from John Lewis a few years ago) which are distinctly tighter than this time last year! My red shirt and Michael’s braces are from Massimo Dutti, and my fabulous new tan boots are from Timberland (aren’t they gorgeous?!). Michael bought the hat a few years ago from an amazing little hat shop in Charleston, South Carolina. I added a few little girlie details, like the pearl bracelet, some sparkly earrings and handbag. Oh, and I’m also wearing one of Michael’s watches. I think men’s watches love super cool on women.
Would you wear an outfit borrowed from the boys? Wanna see how the other Fab40s did it. Keep reading…
Ada is back with us after enjoying some family time YAY, and here she is looking fresh and super relaxed and ready7 for Halloween! Good to have you back, Ada!
Daenel’s colourful outfit was inspired by a picture of a guy she spotted on Pinterest. Check out her post to find out more! I’m heading right on over because I’m dying to see it!
Shelbee has styled a super quirky outfit that I ADORE! I mean…those velvet boots with that long jacket is gorgeous. And I love that we both decided to don hats. I thought about adding a tie or a dicky bow but decided against it, so I think it’s so cool that she wore a tie beneath her jacket.
Mireille’s gone for a fabulous boyish western look and I presume the shirt belongs to her husband! Aren’t those tan cowboy boots fabulous?!
