Boyfriend style is officially a thing. I first heard about it with boyfriend jeans a few years ago. But I'm really really not a fan.
But there are a ton of ways to get this look without looking like you forgot to wash your clothes or got dressed in the dark.
First, let's talk watches. If you google boyfriend style watch, you'll get a ton of hits, but I love ASOS's tortoiseshell take for 30 GBP (which is what, $50? I should know this). But for my money the best way to get the boyfriend look is with a men's watch. I wear the Timex for J. Crew Vintage Field Army Watch, seen below and in tons of my OOTD posts.

While we're at J. Crew, let's talk about clothing. This is one of my favorite source's for men's clothing, both for my husband and for me. In fact, they used to have a size converter on their size chart for women's to men's sizing, but I don't see it now. But I'm a L or XL in women's depending on fit at J. Crew, and I'm ususally safe with a M in men's.
Take this shirt, one of the washed favorite shirts. This large scale gingham in a classic navy would be perfect for layering under a bright sweater or topping off a skirt. Compare the women's perfect shirt in gingham and you'll find a price difference of almost $10.

Another company that's great with boyfriend style is J. Crew's little sister company, Madewell. I love their ex-boyfriend sweater along with all of the looser fit tees and shirts. I picked up with purple version on Cyber Monday (I know, I know, I said no shopping).

But the first time she cut my hair really short, I didn't show her a picture of Mia Farrow or Carey Mulligan. I showed her this little boy, from the Crewcuts section of the J. Crew catalog.

Dude, it was COLD yesterday! But I needed a spa appropriate outfit so I was not dressed for it and my legs were freezing. All my cold weather clothes are packed and here we are with a three day freeze happening! Anyone else having trouble dressing for the weather?
