Borrowing from the boys

This week’s IFB project challenge is all about celebrating menswear. And if you’ve been a regular reader, you know I’m no stranger to menswear-inspired style and accessories… as well as literally borrowing from the boys. 😉

Here are some of my menswear-inspired faves:

Librarian for Life + Style | Adoring the fedora collage

Hats are a classic way to incorporate menswear, and I do love me a fedora! I’ve borrowed my husband’s navy blue straw fedora on more than one occasion… and he’s been known to borrow my blue-banded straw fedora, as well. 😀

Librarian for Life + Style | All tied up collage

I find repurposing ties a fun way to incorporate menswear into my wardrobe. I’m always on the lookout for wide, vintage men’s tie to make into more obi-style belts.

Librarian for Life + Style | Mad for plaid collage

Equal opportunity plaid! I borrowed that dark blue scarf above from my sweetie, and I often wear Fraser tartan scarves to celebrate my husband’s Scottish heritage.

Librarian for Life + Style | Double take collage

There’s a saying that long-term couples begin to resemble each other. I give you Exhibit A. And I think we’re both ok with that. ♥

And for readers in the States, Happy MLK, Jr. Day!

    I love these looks! Is your husband Scottish? I ask because of the kilt, but mostly because my husband’s family came to the US from Scotland and I’ve been looking for a good tartan to get them some gifts and I still have a great deal to learn. I love the matching looks!
