I have a confession to make, I have literally worn this outfit, or a very slight variation (and by slight I mean simply throwing on a different sweater), for several days now. Who would’ve thought I’d be wearing shorts more frequently in the winter than I do in the summer? But it’s hard to say no to these leather Helmut Lang beauties (they’re no longer available in stores, but you can still check them out here), a great last minute score at the end of a long day at work. Who says clothes can’t buy you happiness? I was in a state of utter euphoria before I even tried them on, haha!
Urban Outfitters Leopard Sweater (love this Wildfox Couture version) / Helmut Lang Cracked Leather Shorts / BDG Coat / Audrey Brooke Riding Boots / Thrifted Bag / Gifted Fedora (want Rag & Bone’s fedora)
In addition, I’ve been trying out a new trend of wearing a cuff or bangle over my sweater sleeve. I’m really liking the look it creates, something about the metal hardware overtop a knubby knit is unintentionally (yet intentionally) chic. I’ve officially decided I need to invest in more cuffs before winter is through (and yes, I’m already counting down the days to warmer weather).
On a side note, it’s almost time to say adieu to my long locks. It’s been fun having them, but I’m starting to miss my curly fro. I’ve liked the different look it’s given me and I would definitely look into getting them again, maybe actual box braids the next time around. For now though I’ll be happy to get back to my regular wash-n-go’s and chunky twist-outs!
Lots of random thoughts this Monday, thanks for reading them all. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
