Working class boys dreaming of girls







Outfit Details:
Threadless Select patchwork wolf shirt - courtesy of Threadless and Lookbook.nu
vintage skirt - thrifted and hemmed
tights - I have no idea
socks - Forever 21
vintage hat - Bobby's; we got it in Cape Cod
Madison Brynne bag - courtesy of Coach
Jeffrey Campbell shoes - courtesy of LuLu*s

I have a confession: I wore this top three times in the past...three days. I know, it's gross. But I shower twice a day (I have minor OC tendencies) and I mainly just changed into it while sitting around, save for today. I just wore it with shorts and jeans (and pajama pants) around the house. A little bit of menswear inspiration in an otherwise girlie getup changed it up enough to go out. Of course, I ended up switching out the skirt for some menswear inspired shorts when the wind picked up, so call me Fickle Fanny.

This story is going nowhere. Let's just end on this note: I'm gross. I'll wear something different tomorrow.



p.s. Is anyone else excited about the Further Seems Forever reunion?
p.p.s. Anyone selling tickets for Weezer at Roseland (Blue Album night)? Kicking myself for not paying attention to the sale date:(

    Gah. That was one of my favourite songs back in HS. <3
    And and and! What a cute semi-schoolgirly outfit! I adore the pattern on the skirt, and the hi desert boots with the red knee socks is genius.

  8. Fickle Fanny you may be, this outfit is still inspirational to me. :) In the simplest and best way, too. I love the colors and how casual yet pulled together this look is. I do covet those socks!

  13. i usually don't ever leave comments on blogs that i read because i am lazy, but for some reason i am hooked on your blog! i think it is just because my life seems so similar to yours... growing up in florida, going to college at ucf, and falling in love with nyc. although i for some reason find myself in nicaragua, don't ask. anyway, i absolutely love your style, i love that you shop in all of the same thrift stores i went to when i lived in bushwick, i love that you live in brooklyn and i think all of the photos of you are great. it is also insanely fascinating that you make your own clothes. anyway, keep creating! i will keep reading! if you are bored (which it seems like you never are) you can read my not-as-fashionable blog... steffysprosandcons.blogspot.com

  14. sigh fall colors! how I miss the north...although living near the beach almost ties with the colors of fall...no not really...oh and I'm Karla by the way, I've read your blog, and I fell in love with your style :D

  15. that shirt looks amazingly soft :D
    i wore a postlapsaria original this weekend :) and just posted the photos tonight!

  16. can't wait for the further seems forever reunion, for real.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Very cute! I don't think it's so gross..if you're just sitting around the house, you don't have to wash a shirt right away.

    Oh, and I often shower twice a day too. Not always, but I always take a morning shower & will sometimes take a night one - if I got sweaty or sometimes just to feel more refreshed (when you're tired, getting into a hot shower for a few minutes can really revive you)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love the knee highs with the skirt! I am knee high obsessed this year!

    How do you go about picking out knee highs? Do you usually buy ones you like and work them into an outfit or shop for ones you know would finish a look?

  20. Love this outfit - that skirt is so pretty! And it looks great with those wedges.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm always drawn to colorful outfits with different textures and patterns that I wouldn't have thought to put together. Love this charming look!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Absolutely no judgement on multi-day wears! I think we're all guilty! LOVING these socks - such a pretty color - and the wedges are really cute!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love those wedges, but they are kind of heavy aren't they? I feel like I get a full workout when I walk around in my rust-colored ones. Love the colors in this outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm totally guilty of multiple wears in one week, too! I change my outfit a few times a day, though. Love your blog! :)

  32. Wearing a favourite top a few times in a few days isn't gross, it is normal :) The skirt is lovely, I never know what to do with madras but it looks great here, and I love the muted colours.

  35. First time I've commented here, just because I love this outfit so much! It's perfectly quirky and colourful. Those knee high socks with tights look so cosy but sexy at the same time. Inspiring!

  38. Great look! I really love that skirt

    ReplyDelete
  39. Do those socks stay up well? I always want to wear over-the-knee socks but it seems like I was constantly having to pull up the ones I've bought in the past...I saw that Forever21 had some cute ones the other day...

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is such a perfect fall look! i love the matching socks and tights!

    ReplyDelete
  41. i LOVE this outfit!!! the skirt, the hat, the socks over tights..amazing :) x

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm terrible about finding a garment that I attach to for a few days, but I too am an avid fan of personal hygiene, so I don't consider it to be too gross.

    Love the way you've styled it here!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I really like how you combined tights with knee high socks. I'm not daring enough to wear knee highs alone (not crazy about drawing attention to my thighs) but I would wear them like this. Also, you are not gross. Even if you wear the same shirt multiple times throughout 3 days you shower 2x a day so you never really get the clothes dirty. That's my thinking anyway :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love this outfit. The tights and socks together is cute. I really love your shirt. Who cares if you wore three time in three days. lol. I've been wearing the same cardi everyday this week too. It's just too comfy to take off.

    ReplyDelete
  45. looking good, love the combo!! xoxo http://www.fashionablenotebook.blogspot.com

  46. one of my favourite outfits :D You look really beautiful & the combination's great! :D Love the last picture :]

  47. Erin vs. Paris: I know what you mean about the socks not staying up. I have an issue with some that I got from Urban Outfitters, which stinks because they're really cute. These stay up really well. They're also $4 or something, so you really can't lose.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I saw your halloween look on lookbook. that is a really nice look. but this one too(:

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ooooh I love that skirt! And naw... not gross to wear the same shirt three days in a row. I've definitely done it.

  51. Love this outfit! Also, what is the name of the lipstick you're wearing? I normally just stick to my Burt's Bees tinted balm, but it's such a pretty color!

  55. Hi Keiko!

    I love this shirt! I am buying one from Threadless (in the "summer's passing" design), but I am unsure what size to get. Would you be so kind as to tell me what size you are wearing? It looks great on you!

    Thank you!

    Much love.

  59. I'm in love with this look - especially the skirt, and the socks/tights are one of my favorite colors for fall. I want a new plaid skirt so badly now - everyone is rocking them at all sorts of lengths! I just saw that wolf tee on Threadless today :) Oh, and I don't think you're gross.

    ReplyDelete
  60. love the sock and shoes, great colors for fall! and i love further seems forever!

    ReplyDelete
  61. this is a beautifully artistic outfit I think! you look great, and who cares if you used that shirt three days in a row, if it looks and smells good that's just fine. and I can tell it looks good. don't know about the smell though from here, haha!

  62. I can't seem to find this shirt and as I am in love with Wolves--a very hard pattern to find--and blog under the name Wolves in Lace, I was wondering if they were still selling this shirt? Maybe I just don't see it?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks!
