Boyfriend Style

After a full on run out west with the boy and his band mates I've been holed up over here in Nashville catching up a bit. On the oh maybe 3 occasions I've ventured out I've been wearing one of two things: the good ol' classic Canadian tuxedo, or in the case that I'm going for the off-duty rock girl thing a little pairing of leather and denim is working wonders.

Here's the other part of the story: I left New Orleans on February 4th on a one way ticket. Wasn't quite sure where the road would wind to, so I packed a single bag and thanked my lucky stars that Ben's clothing doubles perfectly as mine.

I'm a firm believer in boyfriend denim, the boyfriend coat, the boyfriend tee, pattern behavior here...

On the first sunny day we've had here in Nashville, I grabbed a vintage tee scored in Portland (rockin' Schlitz circa 1982, the favorite beer of James Booker circa 1976) and the first suede jacket the boyfriend didn't happen to already have on his person and headed out. As a sucker for real deal fringe, of course I pulled the hand-stitched 50's version found in a Tucson, AZ vintage shop. That old fringe is so much better than the new school factory made stuff, and I think the wear gives it some serious character.

With the weekend on the horizon I suggest creating your own boyfriend style (boy or no boy ... that part's your call).

While every piece of clothing I'm wearing is vintage you can get your own version with these recs below. Btw that J.O.A. faux suede drape jacket is major (without a major price tag). My bag is c/o Galian, the Frida turquoise collar is c/o Rockbox (jewelry subscription service, oui oui! use my code ouiwegirlxoxo to get your first month free); I've linked to the rest of my boyfriend style game below.
