Hello boys and girls, say hello to my friend Eddie! Band t-shirts are making a huge comeback and while most people probably just wear them as a fashion statement, rest assured I am not a poser. I actually used to listen to Iron Maiden quite a lot in high school, and I've already seen them live in concert twice. I do admit though that the t-shirt is not mine, I borrowed it from my husband who is also a huge fan. It has become quite a habit for me to borrow stuff from his closet and in a recent conversation with a friend of mine who apparently does the same, I admitted that my strategy sometimes is to buy clothes for my husband with the intention of borrowing them from time to time. This way I score points for the gift, I don't have to use my own closet space but I make sure I don't borrow stuff too often.
You've already seen my fabulous two toned boots in a previous post (here) where I mixed them in an elegant outfit. This time I wanted to put them in a more laid back, casual but still stylish context. I thought this pair of cropped jeans would look great with the boots. I was a bit skeptical about the length of the jeans at first, but they do look great with the boots and I love that you can see a teeny tiny bit of skin as well. I was getting a bit tired of the same old skinny and boyfriend jeans everybody is wearing, and these are surely a breath of fresh air. Of course not everyone is a fan - talk about a man repeller, but I am for sure!
I don't normally mix black and brown together, it's the kind of combination that is hard to pull off, and honestly quite hard to digest. But luckily I found this beautiful checkered coat that ties the whole ensemble together and gives the outfit more structure. And did I mention it's made in Romania? #buylocal Having second thoughts right now about the belt, but all in all I am very pleased with this look.
