Tomboy Style and the Older, Larger Woman

The Lucky Community asked us to blog about the Tomboy look.
Is it possible to be old, overweight, wear mens clothing, and not look like a slob?
A challenge! Let's see what I can come up with!

What do you think of when you hear the word "tomboy"?
This perhaps:
that's me between my brothers, 1962
Not this:
I think to pull off a tomboy look, one needs to have a "boyish" figure: slim, athletic.
And for me, those days are long gone (despite what my mind says).
I certainly wear mens garments, however, as you already know.
And with a little effort, I can wear them out and about and not look too schlubby.

I found the boxers in the sample giveaway box at work and pounced on them. A rare 3-pack of XL [sample size is usually S] -- one even had my print design on it! Score!
Severo's embroidered shirt: Cubavera, Ross [borrowed]
mens boxers: Michael Morgan, Fred Meyer [free sample from work]
leggings: BJ's [bought]
socks: Ross? [bought]
mary jane clogs: White Mountain [gift from Leslie]

Have you worn a tomboy look lately?
