Growing up, my sister was the bigger tomboy in our family, but I also enjoyed lots of pursuits more typically associated with boys: building things with power tools, racing matchbox cars, collecting snails in my pockets and pretend-shaving my 'beard' next to my dad. I was also the only kid in the neighbourhood who ever wanted to play with our croquet set, so maybe I've got a posh elderly lady living in me too.
This outfit has some subtle hints of menswear: a neutral brown/grey palette, a fabric that's reminiscent of a suit, a slightly androgynous watch. The dangly earrings and bow-tied belt reflect the girly side that's an equally big part of my identity. Tell me: Where do you fall on the tomboy/girlie girl spectrum?
