Combat Winter

I know these boots are called after military wear but don’t you think there was a little, just a little nuance in it that implied people should wear these while combating winter? The minute it snowed (which is now doomsday in my world, despite some people that still get as happy as a kid when the land turns white) I knew for a fact that for the next – oh I don’t know – 4 months, these are all I’ll be wearing but I was determined to make the outfit a little more me, a little more fashionable at least. Here’s to the first of many, many snowy, slushy, icy outfit photos! . Camel sweater COS (similar here & here) . Light brown teddy coat Front Row Shop (similar here & here) .

Not So Subtle

I know no one will believe me when I tell that I’ve always worn my button down shirts one part tucked in and the other part out ever since high school and it has nothing to do with Vetements – especially when I’m head to toe Vetements styling overdose – but it’s true. It’s like telling you always knew your team will score or how the movie will end after it happened, you have to make the declarations beforehand to be credible, but if I spend enough time in old photo albums I may find a couple of “rebellious” high school looks with my oversized shirts and super mini skirt (only time in history I wore mini skirts) to prove my point. Though I can’t deny the not so subtle Vetements references appearing in every single outfit of mine lately. . Black oversized leather jacket Zara (similar here & here) .

Big Fish

No surprises here, of course I hopped on board with the fishnet tight thing (I actually have a regular fishnet pair from years ago in my drawer, never been used, don’t remember why I bought, not questioning) but I needed something more special, something weirder, like the whole body thing I saw at the Proenza Schouler show last season. A fishnet but for big fish only, because that’s how I do (and can eat, actually). . Dark grey wool blazer H&M (similar here & here) . Ivory Parker jeans Citizens of Humanity (similar here & here) .

Connect The Dots

Look ma I’m wearing a dress, a maxi one with polka dots and frills no less! And the weird thing is, I’m not feeling girly at all. I’m wearing metallic, heeled boots with my ruffled dress and I’m not feeling girly. Is it the oversized trench? Is it the Vetements effect? I know I’m not that cool, what is it that makes sloppy girlish look this cool? I don’t know the answers but I know I’m more comfortable than I’ve ever been. .

Ruffle Up, Hoodie Down

I don’t know what fashion is doing to me but this skirt is not the first or the last ruffled item I bought this season and even though it still feels weird to me to wear anything this girly, it’s weirdly not weird enough. The oversized hoodie and sneakers do help of course, I can’t imagine myself in a high heel-sexy blouse combo but I still applaud myself for getting in an out of this style challenge alive. Even though I seem a bit angry about it. . Ivory cropped hoodie H&M (similar here & here) . Navy ruffled skirt Zara (similar here & here) . Black sneakers Vans (or get them here & here)
