Despite my obsession with breezy florals and feminine everything, as we move from Fall into Winter I find myself coveting some of the more masculine things in life. Just as I love a good floral print and plush sheepskin throw pillows, I also love chopping wood, snuggling with cute puppies, aggressively shooting arrows, and, most importantly, drinking wine out of baby bottles. Men, just like the ones shown below, are who inspired my recent (and not so recent) everyday masculine essentials. Here are five of them:
1. The perfect riding jacket
I have a few vintage (and a few non-vintage) riding jackets and they’ve been my go to’s season after season. They have a close structured cut, and they aren’t bulky. But, my favorite thing about them is that they look great over flowy dresses AND with jeans and a simple T-shirt. Etsy and Ebay both have an ample supply of vintage riding jackets, or you can order new from an online tack shop such as Mary’s Tack or Dover Saddlery. These things are classic, and as long as they fit will, they don’t go out of style. Period.
Here’s a few of my favorites:
2. A Rustic Cowhide Rug
Cowhide rugs are stylish and versatile. They basically look good with every type of decor and in pretty much any room.
These are a few “must haves”
3. Super Structured Statement Jewelry
The geometric patterns on these pieces scream masculine, but they are such amazing statement pieces for everyday. Plus, the clean lines make them so versatile.
Here are some of my favorites:
4. Cut-out loafers:
I’ve been pretty much terrified of these shoes since they became trendy a few years back, until I saw my mom try on a pair a couple weeks age. OMG these shoes are sooo cuuuttteee!!! Even if you have the ugliest feet in the world, if that’s a thing, these shoes will make them look so good! My mom took the last pair in our size, but luckily we’re heading back to visit her next week and my grand plan is to wear them EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
5. Wild Geometirc Wallpaper
I’ve been crushing on this funky wallpaper for a while now, and I’m thinking it would make for the perfect accent wall. It’s masculine, modern, and versatile enough to work with a variety of decor.
As always, goodbye for now! I hope you have the BEST Thanksgiving!!
