From the Boyfriend's Closet // OOTD

Boyfriends. They are great people. They give nice hugs. They warm your hands when they're frozen. Sometimes they make you breakfast in bed. But one thing I like about boyfriends is that you can raid their closet. I got this really cool skeleton tunic from my boyfriend's closet. Well, actually he gave it to me prior to us dating. Hehe.


I like the oversized natured of borrowing from boyfriends. No matter what, you get that cozy, enveloping effect. Most women's tunics are very short on me & don't cover the bum area. I love me some leggings, so I like my butt to be covered. Luckily this tunic is long enough. 



I have a few pairs of go to Christmas socks. I wear them all the time when the season is right. It just makes me feel holly & jolly. Oxblood creepers & Christmas socks make a nice combination, I'd say. I paired it with a vest I snagged from my grandma's closet.


Tunic: Buffalo Exchange // Vest: Grandma // Leggings: Forever 21 // Socks: Unknown // Shoes: H&M

I had a really nice low key Christmas with my boyfriend -- our first one together versus with our families. Pizza. Beer. Gifts. Love. It was nice & happy. Here's hoping you had a merry Christmas. What did you do for the holiday? Anything special? Do you ever borrow from your boyfriend's closet or grandma's closet?

  7. I also can associate with finding ladies' tunics way too short. Why?!

    Anyway, love it. Thanks for sharing the idea. My boyfriend's closet is now in peril. :)

  10. I've always stolen and still steal my now husband's band shirts too. They're way more cozy than most girl's clothing and he has a ton, so he never seems to mind. :) (P.S. I love the socks! I'm constantly buying seasonal socks from Target's $3 section, so I'll never run out.)

  12. I've always wanted to have outfit photos using my boyfriends shirts. He's got a great taste in shirts, and it's always making me mad that I can't wear them that often because some are too large for me.

  25. I'm sooooo envious of ladies who can raid their boyfriend/husband's wardrobe because I can't. My hubby wear XL and I wear XS so I look like I'm drowning in his clothes. LOL!
