Outfit Post: Linen and Llamas

Saturday was a glorious Seattle day - and I didn't have class! - so Lumberjack and I went on an adventure to the Ballard locks.  And I figured that I hadn't done an outfit post in a while, so I persuaded him to take some pictures while families and dudes with bikes walked by and stared.  Sorry, everybody.

I got dressed with the intention of trying out the casual-menswear-inspired look that I've seen and admired on others, but never done before myself.  I went overboard a little and ended up feeling a little like a cliché - oversized shirt, tight pants, long necklace, and oxfords, complete with a DSLR slung over my shoulder - but a fun cliché, at least!

By the end of the walk, my feet had gone on strike... turns out, I need to break these shoes in a lot more before I can wear them to walk 2-3 miles at a time!  Good thing I brought band-aids with me.

I got to turn the camera around on Lumberjack.

That's a great color on him! Glad to see he's bold in his choices. Or is that your influence? :)

I definitely encourage him to try bold colors, but he's super open-minded about style and willing to try non-stereotypically "manly" colors. He gives a fair shake to whatever I bring him or help him pick out, which is pretty cool!
