  1. I love menswear inspired outfits! I love that you added feminity with the hat but then had the sleek and sexy mens inspiration.

  2. So cute! I had that shirt in my clutches before it went on sale, and returned it. Now I can't find my size anymore and I'm bummed. It's becoming clear to me how versatile it is!

    1. Despair not, I'd imagine that it wouldn't be that difficult to DIY with a white silk shirt, black trim, and a good tailor!

  3. i love this.. i tend to go too girly whenever I do menswear.. or black and white.. i suppose i just have girly style! I like the dark pants, i wore shorts!

  4. I love how sophisticated yet simple/chic this outfit looks. Great purse!

  5. love the b+w look. especially with the one little black stripe down the front of the blouse!
    the hat is perfect way to top off this look {pun intended :D}

  8. Stop it with this tam! I love love love this look from head to toe. You look so chic!

  9. I love your outfit and the bag -- it's gorgeous! I just received the same top in the mail today, but I find that my regular white tank top doesn't look great with it! The top is quite sheer. Any suggestions? Thank you!

    1. Yes--with sheer tops, I always go with nude-colored bras or camis. Just find one that matches your skin tone well! That way it can *look* sheer without actually being too revealing.
