Boy Meets Girl (and a bun)




Do you know what happens when it rains for 2 days and then the sun comes up? A humidity so intense that any rational person with troubled hair must simply give up and go for a bun. I didn't expect this situation to happen the day I go for a boyish look but I am thinking the heels serve as a friendly reminder that I am a girl wearing a men-inspired look? 
 In any case, here's some food for thought... When you try to pull of a boyish look, it is extremely necessary to use as many girly things as possible. In my case, I think the only girly thing in my outfit is the pink and the rhinestones (because I was expecting wavy hair in my shoulders) but next time, I will be sure to measure the humidity level before stepping out of the apartment. I have to admit, I am having a serious trouble getting over my lack of hair, cleavage and leg show-off, is that terrible? What do you think? How do you best pull off this look?

  10. hate humid days too! I agree, buns are perfect for that kind of sticky weather although my buns never stay perfectly in place. the bronze necklace looks great underneath the collar! :)

  42. Haha I totally agree with you, sometimes when an outfit is too masculine, you need something womanly to balance it out. For me, its either a pair of heels or some feminine jewelry.

  57. When I saw your photos, the only words that popped into my mind were "chic, beautiful, and inspirational." never once did i think "boy." I love the look, WITH the bun! I think your long, thin legs, high heels, girly jewelry, and clutch look super feminine. You look wonderful!!
