i completely forgot to mention in my last post that i got a haircut! though i suppose that’s probably a bit obvious from looking at the photos… as much as i wish i could be a girl with long, messy hair, i just don’t think it’s for me! i really only truly feel like myself when my hair is short. long hair just feels too feminine for me, being the type of woman who doesn’t necessarily fall squarely on the girly side of the spectrum. so i suppose it’s fitting that today’s post is featuring a menswear-inspired shirt from the new power of my people fall 2016 collection. this season, they focused a lot on their textiles, which is obviously very exciting for me being a bit obsessed with fabrics. it’s also a bold move for an online retailer because you don’t really have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the fabrics like you would in a store. but luckily, you can order free fabric samples to get a better look and feel for the textiles. which is actually how i picked out this shirt. it’s made of a cotton linen blend with a very subtle vertical rhythm in the weave. it’s a bit hard to describe, but it’s those details that really elevate a simple everyday shirt into something that feels more special.
i also really love the slightly relaxed “wayward” fit, but if you prefer something a bit more tailored, they also make a “proper fit” style as well. but you really should just click over to the site to see their selection to get a better idea for yourself! and if you spot something you fancy, we are very pleased to offer you a coupon code for the month of november:
