Tomboy

I’m aware of how ironic it is that I chose a tomboy outfit for a painting called “Woman of Substance“, but I didn’t plan it. I just looked at the painting and thought, “OK, white shirt, my teal pants (because it’s just been raining and I didn’t want to turn into a mosquitoes’ buffet, so no skirt), those oxfords because there’s a bit of brownish orange in the lilies…” When I put all the pieces together, I realized it kinda looks like those 1950’s tomboy outfits, so I added a scarf to complete the look. Of course a true 1950’s tomboy outfit would be a button-up shirt and straight-legged jeans instead of a blouse and skinny jeans, but I feel this is a good interpretation. Like a slightly more modern update on a vintage look. Which of course describes my style perfectly, so I’m happy with it.

  1. So can I just say . . . your style is FABULOUS. This is the most beautiful outfit ever. I’m partial to any that include oxfords, but the scarf, plain tee, and blue pants pulls it all together into a beautiful, classy, preppie look.
