Godamn Kids of Summer

Surprised to see me?  Honestly - me too.  After a hella hectic quarter (read: a lot of work, a couple of fun nights, more work, changing majors and very little sleep) which definitely paid off, this poor little blog has been a bit sadly neglected.  Well, that's all going to change because this little blog is coming back to life especially now that I'll have a bit more time on my hands thanks to being on winter break and back home in NZ!  Not to mention, I have a couple of very exciting collaborations I'm getting ready to announce and...two giveaways coming your way as a little bribe-apology for being a bit of crap blogger.  Ever since a growing love for everything Mad Men, menswear, and a extremely fun gender-bender ball, menswear inspired looks have been my default for the last month or so.  Late fall = crisp white shirts with rolled up sleeves, cuffed jeans and car coats, like a boss dapper gent.  Now hopping on a plane to the other side of the world has dumped me on the verges of summer and I still can't quite let go of the menswear look, so I suppose I'm regressing from all polished back down to high school punk.  Forget men, summer is for the boys.

I'm going to be honest - I love my Glassons letterman I scored last year but there has always been something kind of awkward about wearing it in the US where kids actually wear these for non-fashion related purposes.  So whenever I hit NZ soil, letterman jacket...holla!  I threw this on for day of discount bin diving at Dressmart (hello Ladakh sample dresses for $10!).  Went for a little acid-punk with some screenprinted snakeprint, leopard spotted highwaisted shorts and black sheer tights, topped it off with my favorite letterman layered over a longer black basic cardigan and leather walking booties for a mix of classic prep and best-night-ever-trashy....ahh the anthem of summer ;)

By the way, now that I've got a little more time and experimenting more with my cam - what do you think of this shoot?  This is the first shoot I've ever done where I've deliberately messed with the settings to really emphasize the vibe of the outfit. Love it/Hate it? Drop me a comment and I guess I'll find out.  :)  

letterman jacket - Glassons
snakeprint tank - Charlotte Russe
leopard print shorts - BDG cheeky cut, UO

  22. I LOVE those shorts!The balance of a bold pattern on shorts with a neutral color and a more solid jacket with a bold color is too cool!
