It’s A Man’s World

Ok, maybe it really isn’t a man’s world out there, but the men like to think so. The role that the men have in the household are beginning to be what the women did(  ie. cook, clean, take care of the kids) This give the woman of the household the chance to support the family. This is staring to transcend into fashion as well.  Men’s inspired fashion for women is increasingly popular. It is a trend that I like follow as well. If you would like to catch on too, then check out these easy pieces. They are feminine and masculine. You get the best of both worlds.

I love this shirt with the rolled up leaves. It is masculine, but it looks equally chic with white jeans. It is also available in red and purple. It is $54.50 at Gap.com 

 

This Corey Lynn Calter dress is great for the spring and summer. The lapels make it look masculine, but the dress itself is very feminine. The dress is on SALE for $125 at Luvcharlie.com

Earth Week Wrap Up

Since today is Earth Day, I think that we should all do something to help the environment. Today, I took a shower without blow drying my hair (like I normally do), I took the bus to class, and at lunch, I got a reusable to-go box from my local dining hall. There is so much we can do, we can plant a tree every year, recycle more, use public transportation, and so much more. Here are some fun items to help you feel more green.

My dad has one of these and I think it is so smart. It is a porcelain coffee cup. It is dishwasher and microwave safe too. It is $14 at Fredflare.com 

I just love this adorable jumper by Elroy. It is made 100% out of tencel, an organic fabric. It also available in a darker denim shade. It is $95 at Shopelroy.com
