Borrowed from the Boyfriend

Button up Lacoste (Thomas's), Jeans Hudson, Heels Banana Republic (on sale!), Belt Urban Outfitters, Watch Michael Kors, Sunnies Replay

Somedays when I'm feeling like I have nothing to wear, I like to go and raid Thomas's closet. He has quite the collection of Lacoste polos, button-ups, and t-shirts. Since they are are pretty over-sized on me, I like to pair them with skinny jeans or something that that is more fitting. I love the overall look of wearing menswear but adding feminine touches. 
For those of you that want to go and try on some of your boyfriend's (or guys friends!) clothes, here are a few tricks to avoid looking like your drowning in them:
-Roll up the sleeves & then push them up 
-Add a belt around the waist to get some shape back
-Tuck in the front so it's not hanging down, but leave the back out so it still looks casual
-Pin it in the back with a brooch to again, get some shape back
-Pop the collar a bit to add some style :)

Thomas's shirt (in the last pic) is one that I really love to wear often with some skinny jeans to class.

The guy I'm in a relationship with is into the fashion industry, and makes a lot of his own clothes - sometimes boyfriends just have the nicest clothes ;)

I know the feeling when you don't feel like you have anything to wear and want to raid the boys closet! Only problem is my boy has ridiculously big shoulders for his age and i look pretty stupid in his shirts!

His mums closet is pretty good though!!
You look gorgeous as always! Loving those sunnies too!

I love the menswear look. I however could never fit into my fiance's clothing. I'm 5'2" and a size 2 and he's 6'3" with very broad shoulders.

These are such great tips for making men's clothing wearable. I'm such a shortie that I've always avoided it. The sleeves would just be ridiculous on me... but some of these could definitely help!
