Soccer jerseys

Heyyyyyy everyone. It’s been a while… I’ve gone through some big changes with my job, location, housing, pets, everything! Soccer can be fun to follow and is easy to look good while doing it. Football jerseys are pretty oversized and basketball jerseys can look a little baggy too. Soccer jerseys look sharp and are pretty gender neutral, which is what I like.

If you are going out to watch the game, I recommend pairing a jersey with some jeans or cloth shorts. Anything else and it will look either too formal or too much like you are heading to practice yourself.

 

Here’s me in an old Greece jersey and some new J. Crew shorts.

 

 

 

I’m wearing cans but you could definitely sport some clean looking tennis shoes.

Let me know what you think!

Workout Post #1

My advice on workout clothes is simple: don’t spend a lot of money on them. The more money you spend on workout clothes, the more it looks like you are there to look cute and not be serious. You can make an effort to look cute everywhere and all the time, but if you do it in the gym you honestly look silly. Everyone can argue with me and say you can look cute and work hard- and its true, but why? The gym is where you are supposed to show the side of you that is hard core and no nonsense. That’s why you are there in the first place: to do work, not to impress people.

What I recommend is definitely the casual “I’m not going out of my way to look great while I sweat through these clothes” look. This entails not being dressed head-to-toe in the most flashy or logo bearing items. The people best dressed in the gym are the regulars, and they are not wearing $100 flashy gimmicky items. They are typically wearing shirts from fun runs, hard core runs, old softball club shirts, swimming finals shirts, charity event shirts, volunteer event shirts, and other free t shirts. Why? Because you are going to sweat through it and get pit stains within the year. You’re going to get the rust from the bar on the shoulders while doing squats, and the dirt from the floor on your back while doing sit-ups. The number one way to look like you never go to the gym and don’t belong there is to wear head to toe brand names. The best way to look like you fit in the environment is to wear shirts you don’t mind messing up and show proof you are active in some way.

If you get this, then let me add that you should add some color. There are in colors in workout clothes right now it’s highlighter type stuff and don’t be afraid to add it. Seasonal colors do not apply to workout clothes and adding a bright color makes you look fun. You can really not go wrong. This rule applies to working out, skiing, and swim suits all year round.

Shorts/yoga pants and shoes can all be fancy if you want but, my advice, don’t piece together the fanciest outfit.

Holiday outfits from “Art of Manliess” blog

The more formal the occasion is, the more gender specific the clothing is. For example something really informal events call for a t shirt and jeans. Then as you go down the line to more formal events, the harder it is to look androgynous without looking out of place. When it gets super formal, I give up and get a dress that covers everything easily.

The art of manliness website is a place I go get some inspiration for the androgynous look. I look at that and some other men’s fashion posts in order to see how I can mix it up for my own taste and body type. I hope I’m giving them enough credit because this entire post is adding some commentary on their post. They created this great holiday outfit guide seen here.

Dressing-for-Holidays-2

Alright, so my edits:

Thanksgiving outfit: No changes you should know by now this is my favorite fall look.

Office holiday party outfit: While this look can work for a lot of people really well, it doesn’t work for me. Personally, the sportcoat over the sweater look is a little too masculine and bulky. That being said, wool pants and oxfords are a great holiday look. I would pair this bottom look with women’s pants and with a more feminine sweater.. like a Cambridge cable. Also, I will go ahead and say I really do not like the argyle style. I think it’s VERY overdone and is very 10 years ago… if not 20 years ago. I remember thinking I was cool wearing it in middle school.

Christmas party: I definitely agree with the whole look. I am not a tie wearer but this would be an occasion to wear a fun one. If it is more of an informal party I would also suggest wearing some sort of Christmas sweater. Not the ugly sweater top, really, but ….similar and hopefully cute. It’s the holiday season -get into the spirit by not wearing a plain v neck that you wear any other chilly night. To clarify… not this:

I do not own these photos I stole them from a google image search. I’ll post my own soon. Probably a whole sweater inspiration album -I love them so much.

Definitely love the Christmas day look. Every single last part of it. Wear the hat, wear the moccasins, definitely wear the sweater! Jeans are fine but if you are more casual joggers are good too.

Hope you like-y. Comment with your thoughts or message me with some similar looks on women I would love to see them. Also let me know if I’m doing this whole giving credit to the sources thing alright. Thanks!

Basic Lesbian in the Fall

Let me caveat this post by saying: We have all seen the “basic” lists. The original target was not the women, really, but the consumer culture associated with fall. Some are meant to be funny, some are meant to be insulting. The below list is meant to be funny and, yes, it’s based off stereotypes and has nothing to do with fashion but, whatever, just grab a drink and lighten up.

List of basic lesbians favorite fall activities

#1. Wearing plaid and beanies

#2. Falling in love with a straight girl that confused you because she, too, was wearing plaid and a beanie

#3. Getting way excited for Oktoberfest activities

#4. Not shaving because you’ll be wearing pants all winter… unless you think you are going to get laid.

#5. Carving a pumpkin into something clever (to you anyway) and saying shit 100 times

#6. HUNGER GAMES

#7. Taking a crush to a haunted house maze and realize you keep throwing her at the monsters and this was probably not the best move

#8. Taking on a DIY project

#9. Having a bonfire get together and feeling like the queen of the fire

#10. When everything is done, we love the sense that it’s time to hibernate with our old pal Netflix

Comment with your additions to the list!

Ok before I say too much… just look at this and decide if you think this is a good look for a lesbian.

Alright, now that you have decided let me tell you more about it. I started with this base layer,

image

Just a cream colored shirt, black levi jeans, and a beautiful necklace courtesy of my girlfriend.

image

For accessories I have a bulova watch with a hairband and cat scratch. Hairbands are the universal lesbian club bracelet and cat scratches mean VIP member.

Now… my grey Clark’s desert boots and a $5 thrift shop sweater. What?? A thrift shop find post? Yes. Stuff you find in thrift shops can be very similar to the stuff you find in Urban Outfitters. The main difference is about $80.

What made this item stand out to me was it’s shades of blue pattern. It kind of looks like a grandma sweater with how it’s woven pattern. On the other hand, it’s cut is like a motorcycle jacket. I can’t do leather motorcycle jackets, personally. It’s too over the top butch for me, especially because I’ve never so much as rode on a moped. But having that style as a sweater? Let’s try it out. Here are some more pics so you be the judge and let me know if this was a good look or a total flop.

Dare I say I’m ready for it?

I dare say I am.

I’ll be giving my two cents on what I think every lesbian should be wearing this fall! I’ll go more in depth and put outfits together throughout the season but here are the basics of what I’m working with.

I’ll start with the bottoms, which (surprise) are all pants. I suggest 2 in every category.

image

3 levi’s: black, dark blue, and regular blue

image

Fun pants:
Joggers
Corduroys
Biker pants

image

Various pants of fall colors

image

Jeans I’ve accumulated from the past 10 years and, in the further pile, patagonia and Columbia “adventure pants.” These piles are pants I don’t mind messing up.

Next tops. Winter and fall are great because you can wear loud tops and put a jacket over it to mute it a little. I know it’s October but it’s still tee shirt weather here so I’ve included those as well.

image

On the left short sleeve tees, next long sleeve tees, then flannels/plaids, and on the right “fun shirts.” I suggest 2 of these at least too.

image

A few solid seasonal colored shirts.

image

The first two piles are striped and spotted and patterned and solid color sweaters in no order. The pile on the right is strictly reserved for exceptionally fun sweaters. I have a ton but you honestly need just a few.

image

These are just sweats but I had to include them for good measure.

Now for the footwear:

image

Basic navy vans, my “Peter Pan boots”, tallish black boots, wine colored monk straps, grey Clark’s and brown leather ones.

I left out a few extra tops (that would get ruined on a hanger), polos, tees, shorts (for now), and old shoes to get super dirty:

I already bought a couple more shirts that I’ll have some fun tailoring/customizing that I’ll post more about later. Hopefully that piques your interest, thanks for reading 🙂

Men’s Shirt Alert: Native Youth

I call this my perfect pride shirt.

About the fit: I have some hips going on but I actually make a conscious effort to try to keep my waist to shoulder ratio as small as possible. I’m 5’3 and usually get the sleeves shortened, bottom hemmed, and sides taken in every shirt I wear. This shirt, however, needed no hemming. It was another slim fitting shirt from Urban Outfitters. I have referenced this store previously, as men who shop here typically wear their shirts shorter and slimmer than most.

I like the short collar.

It is from Native Youth and has a cool pocket.
