Confession: I may or may not have yet to unpack all my college stuff…still. And by may or may not have, I mean all my clothes are most definitely still in space bags shoved in the back of my closet.
I know that as a fashion student I should, theoretically, love my clothes so much that I actually care to unpack them within three weeks of leaving school but…it’s just so much easier to use that time I could spend unpacking doing more productive things. (read: sleeping till 3 pm each day, binge eating a container of Nutella/hour, and watching Law & Order: SVU in one season sittings in my pajamas at my kitchen table like the social pariah that I truly am.)
So without my regular wardrobe, I’ve had the following two wardrobe choices:
- Residual tween abercrombie kids separates found in my attic (I at least rest easy at night knowing that I am still a children’s size 14)
- Rummaging through my parents’ closets while they are at work.
And since low rider, ‘distressed’ short shorts only take you so far in life, I’ve grown quite fond of the latter choice…
…I found my Dad’s old Army T shirt and immediately fell in love with it because a.) super comfy and huge and neutral colored, and b.) FUTURA EXTRA BOLD HELLO NEED I SAY MORE I DIDN’T THINK SO. (For those of you who don’t know, Futura extra bold is used in lots of chic things like Wes Anderson films and Vampire Weekend album covers.)
Anyways, I paired the shirt with these studded Urban Outfitters shorts I got recently. (I actually can’t resist anything with hardware/spikes/studs though I swear.) I really like how the soft worn in look of the shirt balances out the edgy and trendier feel of the shorts. I finished up the look with my JC Litas which go with everything and since I didn’t want to dilute the feel of the statement shorts, I just wore one ring with this outfit.
