i am a man

i love this incredible mural in downtown Memphis. it’s located on Main Street, the vibrant colors make it hard to miss. It was designed by Marcellous Lovelace and you can read more about it here.

 the breakdown:
i hesitate to wear dark denim with navy because it can look too matchy matchy. that is why i chose to wear these grayish blue jeans with these pumps. i could have worn my light boyfriend jeans but i wear them all the time. 
the jeans have a little distressing in the knees and the pumps are feminine with a floral pattern, i didn’t want to add another element of style so i kept my top simple. but it does have a little surprise detail in the back 🙂 isn’t the long mesh so cool! i love an interesting and unexpected detail. this shirt is part of the ‘shred collection’ by Benjamin Jay. i got my top from a boutique in Memphis call Lavish.
i was going back in forth between wearing this navy bag or a pink cross body. i went with this navy bag because i couldn’t fit all my things that day into the pink. problem solved.

* Lavish. this is a great boutique in Collierville which is a suburb of Memphis. this store has a variety of great designers. people of all ages can find something here too, that is probably my favorite thing about this store. it’s not too old or too young but has something for everyone. i really enjoy shopping at local boutiques, regardless of what city i’m in, and supporting small business owners. Lavish, get ready to see more of me!
