Do you like raiding your boyfriend’s or hubby’s closet for stuff to wear?
I confess, I do. I’ve done it many many times. While my husband’s jeans are a tad too big to be called “boyfriend jeans”, his button down shirts (in white and denim) are the ones I love using. Now it looks like I’ll be adding one more item to the list of stuff I borrow from him – sweaters. This idea came up after seeing Hallie of Hallie Daily wear a men’s J.Crew sweater with a cute and short girly skirt and patterned pointy boots. Check her out below:

Doesn’t she look super chic?!
I’ll definitely be taking a cue from this style of hers. And that sweater is truly gorgeous, yes? Who’d have thought she got that from the men’s department!? I love the bits of red on the pattern. I also like how fresh the pattern looks; there’s none of the traditional reindeer stuff. It’s a piece from J. Crew if you’re interested. The Deep Navy is currently on sale on their website:
J. Crew Lambswool Seaspey Fair Isle Sweater, USD70 (was USD128)
Now I’m not sure yet if my guy has a similar topper in his closet, but just in case I don’t find one in there, I might just grab this really preppy number from Topman that is currently on sale at Nordstrom. I’ll pair it with a black pleated mini skirt and tights, then finish it with boots:
