I have some articles of clothing in my closet that get me made fun of every time I wear them. Its inevitable! hahaha! And these jeans overalls are one of those articles. I literally walked into work today and got called a plumber! And it’s a little bit understandable: it’s got an elastic waist and it’s made of light blue jeans, similar do the color of a plumber’s uniform!
And to top it off, I stopped at this little shop with all of the umbrellas and all of a sudden I became a Mary Poppins/plumber hybrid. Awesome.
My Boy always tells me that one of the things he loved about me right away was the fact that I’m a feminist and yet still very feminine. And I always answer that one thing doesn’t cancel the other – in fact, it’s quite the opposite. I think every woman is (or should be!) a feminist, because being a feminist simply means being a woman who believes that women should have the same rights as men: respect, opportunities, equal pay, etc.
But this is not a post about feminism. It’s a post about men’s pants which I, as an empowered woman, feel very good about wearing. In fact, I love wearing men’s clothes in general and never ever do I feel less feminine because of that. And it’s a question of feminism: if they can wear it, so can I! LOL.
And these masculine pants from American Apparel make me feel very, very powerful, particularly when I wear them with ultra-feminine pieces to create an interesting look:
Is there anything better than rolling around in bed with the Boy? If there is, I am not aware!
And today while we did just that, my Boy decided to get all cozy with my tattoo, which he hasn’t done since I came home with it! He touched it, looked at it, talked about and when I reminded him that today was Boy at the OutFIGHT day he said, “well then, we shall make this tattoo the start of the whole thing!”
Long weekends are the absolute best, but even though I was very, very happy to have had one this past weekend, I’m pretty sure everyone can agree that they kind of mess up our routine, right?
By the time Tuesday rolled around I had so much work to catch up on that looking at my To-Do list kind of made me want to cry! Among other things, I had one day crammed tight with meetings and decided to use this day to try and wear my new snake print super high-waisted pencil skirt that I got as a gift from A.Brand. Since stature is not my forte, the skirt’s super high waist and tight fit is perfect for creating the illusion of a longer body, so shall we do this?
I nearly died laughing with my Boy picking out my outfit this morning!
He started out with no great adventures – went over to my closet and, as is becoming routine for him, picked out a skirt. In fact, I was very happy with the skirt he picked out, which happened to be one I had made a few years ago.
Once that was done, he went over to the shirts section of my closet and took out a gray t-shirt with a skull printed on it, but placed it next to the skirt and sighed, “doesn’t work”. I couldn’t argue – it really made no sense! So he started to take out my tops, one by one, until he came upon a nude little piece. He opened it up and said, “Is this clothes?! It’s ridiculously tiny!”
We’re all well aware that body chains are all the rage amongst celebrities and fashionistas alike, right?
Well, I bought mine recently and now I want to wear it all the time – with a bikini, over a dress and under a cropped top, which was today’s choice for the OutFIGHT of the Day. The occasion? A chill weekend in the country with my Boy, which included an antique car show, long walks along the old colonial buildings and of course, some good drinks once the sun went down! 😛🍹 So let’s get started and see how to wear a body chain with a crop top!
Who has never taken a look at their closet and thought, “I’ve got nothing to wear?”
This moment of tiny desperation was my main inspiration for creating the OutFIGHT of the day because I knew that just like me, women all over felt that they had nothing to wear. But I never imagined that men felt this way too, much less when picking out an outfit for their girlfriend! After all, the Boy at the OutFIGHT was a product of one of those days when, being late to go out, I cried that I had nothing to wear and he went into my closed and seconds later came out with a full outfit picked out.
This all changed, of course, this morning, when it came time for him once again to choose my look. He looked around for several minutes and sighed: “there’s nothing here that you haven’t work already.
HA! How things change!
Last week, right in the middle of a cold front, I was invited to a dinner party to celebrate the Pink October edition of Lounge magazine. It was going to be a laid back night with some fun girls, so I decided that a dress was the perfect fit for the occasion. Except I’ve been feeling very dress-deprived lately, and when I realized all my options were exhausted I had a brilliant ideia: why not wear a beach dress, one of those we put on over a bikini, smack in the middle of the city? A challenge, sure, but I love challenges and that’s what the OutFIGHT of the Day is all about after all!
This is how things work around here: you ask, I make it happen. And you asked for the return of the Boy at the OutFIGHT, that glorious day of the week when my boyfriend dresses me and I’m at the mercy of this good (or bad) sense of style!
So now it’s official: my boyfriend will pick out my outfit once a week, and since we’re all familiar with the OutFIGHT of the Day, this is gonna be the Boy at the OutFIGHT.

My Boy and I have been wanting to do something cute and different, just the two of us, since forever! I mentioned I’d really like a Paris-style picnic in the park #becausei’msuperchic and with that, we decided what our Saturday afternoon would look like.
