It feels like forever since I’ve done a menswear thing! Something about summer makes it really difficult to imagine adding another layer, and casual menswear really doesn’t read menswear in the same way as a vest or a button front do.
If I didn’t love skirts so much, and if I had the money to reshape my wardrobe, I could be so comfortable dressing in menswear inspired outfits forever. I just feel so “me” in them. (Don’t mind my blank stare in this picture, my glasses had something on them, I got it off, and then the timer went. Whoops.)
I’m thinking I might dye these shorts a different color, despite how pleased I am with how this outfit came together. The khaki is just a touch too close to my skin color, and I like a bit more contrast. Besides, khaki is so grown-up. Married I maybe, but as long as I’m a grad student, I am determined to dress like a fashionable non-grown-up-person.
Maybe I’ll dye them green…they would certainly get enough use that way! Oh, and I just scheduled this post for independence day, so happy July 4th Americans! While I may not be a very nationalistic person, I love fireworks, so I know where I’ll be!
