Fashion Over Reason: She's a Lady (Sometimes)

She's a Lady (Sometimes)

She's a lady, fashion over reason, street style, on the street, late summer look

I know that I always blab on and on about my tomboy nature and natural inclination for less than feminine garb, but I do get the odd moments where I have this inexplicable desire to unleash the girl inside of me and break out of my own mold. And when that happens, I get all femme and don some out-of-character pieces... But in an unexpected twist, I strangely usually still feel entirely comfortable, at ease, and more importantly, like myself. Does that mean I have a split sartorial personality?

Moving along, this outfit works as well for a summer night as it does for the current transitional weather: throw a leather jacket over your shoulders and you have an ideal getup for a beautiful fall evening. How's that for feminine versatility?
