What I Wore: Tomboy Style

 My style definitely leans toward the tomboy side of things, with feminine pieces mixed in to keep it from being all man.  Overly provocative is something you will never see here, and I am careful not to show too much skin at any one time.  Revealing skirts and shorts are always countered with more conservative tops, and vice versa.

Case in point: the outfit I wore today.  My skirt is made from a pair of Seven Jeans I bought in 2001 and have had a hard time letting go of!  They have taken me out and about in my early 20's while paired with heels and flouncy tops; I wore them until I was almost seven  months pregnant with Henry; and once the holes in the knees were so bad I couldn't deal anymore I made them into a skirt.  That was five years ago!  Here I have them paired with a super soft old man's button down, my rugged short boots (another wardrobe staple), and a simple necklace made with chartreuse tshirt yarn and beads made from scraps of my dad's copper pipe.
 The more worn and beat up my boots become the more I love them.
Whether I wear it up or down I keep my hair casual and messy.  Styling here includes blowing it dry, spraying it with Aquage Sea Salt Spray (a product I learned about from Brandi of Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno), and back combing it a bit before pulling it into a low ponytail.
Makeup is kept simple and mostly natural.  On my face I use Alba Botanica Sea Plus Renewal Night Cream and bare Minerals Makeup.  The main statement I make is with my eyes, where I almost always wear black liquid eyeliner.  It is something I have done for five years or so, and feel it helps my eyes to not get lost behind my heavy black glasses.

Boots: Nine West (no longer available)
