SLIDER

smells like teen spirit

varsity jacket: borrowed from little brother, plaid top: nautica borrowed from father, shorts: citizens of humanity, comfiest black tights ever: hue, shoes: zara

Officially on spring break and back east (I feel like Nick Carraway whenever I talk about "going back east")!! I literally packed and got ready to leave for the airport in a total of 20 minutes. I'm usually a chronic over-packer, but all I brought clothing wise with me this time were some beanies, 2 black bottoms, this pair of shorts, and what I wore to the airport. I've been realllly loving guys clothes so this was the perfect opportunity to borrow some from the fam. 

I feel like time and time again, I say how I used to absolutely hate certain pairings and now, have kind of given in. Red + green were always too christmas-y for me, and denim shorts + tights were a no-no. I think it's safe to say my change of heart and openness to trying things can be thanked to the blogosphere.





Ended up wearing converse cause these shoes are the biggest disappointment. I loved them in the zara lookbook shots, but in person, they just don't hold up. The fake leather is super cheapo, and the zipper is a bitch. Loved the idea of them, but sadly they are going back :(

  1. I do get why you like the shoes though, but you should try out the ones at Asos. I believe the model is called fiction and they are from asks self and made of real leather!

  2. I love this varsity trend so this look is awesome. Shame about the shoes, it sucks when something you are in love with isn't quite what you were expecting.

  3. I totally get what you mean by some things just shouldn't be paired together, but all of that has definitely mad me change my mind too all thanks to the blogging world. Although I haven't done the whole red + green thing it stills gives me the feeling that it's Christmas but together they look great on you! :D

  7. Haha, isn't that awesome how things can change? I used to think tights + shorts just didn't work, but I am loving it now! I've tried it as well and need to debut it on the blog sometime haha :)

  11. tell me about wearing men's clothes. lately I have bought/thrifted stuff from little boys' section, men's section.. and I love what I have found from there. yesterday I even got a pair of colourful skinny jeans from men's section since it was super cheap and fitted perfectly (how odd, right?). anyway, what I wanted to say was that your "manly" outfit rocks! and I'm sorry about those shoes. I hope you will find another pair from somewhere else.

  22. Yeah, I've totally swayed my old no-no standards as a result of compulsive blog reading. Tights and denim shorts were a no-no too, but I've at least succumbed to leggings underneath, which is enough of a violation of my old rules to be notable.

    Really love this retro bomber jacket. Wish I had a letterman jacket comme ca to rock on a daily basis. Should be fun to play around with guys clothes and I'm sure you're gonna come up with some awesome stuff.

    Bumsville when the shoes don't work like they're promised. Cool Wang-esque style, but if they're cheapo, they've got to go-o.
