Several things that have been occupying my mind lately: distressed muscle tees (for optimum gratuitous body ventilation), legitimately walkable ankle boots (because sometimes 6 inches just feels a little ridiculous), and knit in any application but especially those related to the lower half of the body. I have a couple pairs of vintage sweater shorts that I’m waiting on breaking out until the chill gets noticeable enough that I won’t look too awkwardly out of place wearing fair isle. Plan on pairing them many more flimsily distressed t-shirts just for the contradiction and because putting an unreasonable effort into looking scruffy yet fit-conscious can be kind of fun sometimes.
On the docket for the upcoming week: some serious embroidering over the weekend to catch up on a project I’ve been putting off, a day-trip to Santa Monica to explore some free music listening opportunities, and the Lookbook.nu Holiday Party, for which I have a pretty bleak case of outfit-block. When I received the invitation clothing coordination was put off to a later date, and now that the decision is really coming down to the wire I’m pretty much drawing a blank, mostly because I think showing up in a dress would be too easy. Not ruling the option out though. Really, ridiculously surreal how fast time seems to be going by.
