I'm not sure when I started drifting away from wearing dress pants. I think it might have been when I discovered Anthropologie and all the wonderful things dresses and skirt could do. But when I want a good menswear inspired look, really the only way to go with bottoms are pants. For extra flair, I even decided to forgo the normal bow on my top and tie it in a more dude kind of way. Well, as dude-like as I could manage with a floral shirt. I've recently picked up a boyfriend watch so that I could stop banging my BFs on walls and scratching it up and whatnot, so maybe that's why I keep going for more streamlined than ruffled outfits as of late.
