What NYC Recessionista Wears: menswear with a twist

Friday was such a gloomy day here in NYC … so I broke out the blue and decided to give my outfit a menswear-ish twist.

Earrings by NansGlam on Etsy (similar) / J. Crew shirt / Bauble Bar necklace (similar) / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova / moon and star bangle (similar) / J. Crew minnie pant / Dansko sandals

The simple act of buttoning up your button down (ha!) all the way can totally change your look.

At some point I’d love to try accessorizing with a bow tie as I’ve seen in the J. Crew Style Guides lately … but for now I added a statement necklace to give this menswear-inspired outfit a ladylike twist.

As always, I strive to be comfortable but polished on Casual Friday. This outfit just works for me!  Makes me feel sassy.
