happy new year

12-27-2010
Gap mens parka, Gap gingham shirt, Theory shorts, vintage lace up boots

This post is actually almost a week old and has nothing to do with the title, but HAPPY NEW YEAR nevertheless! Wore this on my last day in LA to meet with high school friends for ramen and milk tea then met with my cousin and brother to watch Somewhere. I look silly wearing a parka and shorts but I STILL can't wear jeans because of my knees. I had a little mishap in the rain when I first got to LA and fell down some steps (completely sober, btw).

Expect more regular posting starting now. Vacation is over and it's time to find a full time job! I'm excited and scared at the same time but hopefully everything will work out. Fingers still crossed.

How weird is being "free" from school? I'm freaking out about not being able to get student discounts and finding full time work and "growing up". Hello real world!

You look lovely in the checkered shirt and I like the shorts-and-parka-look! Sorry to hear about your wounded knees, must be bad if you can't wear jeans.

Emilie said...

It's a very military-esque parka though so with shorts it totally works. I love everything about this haha so my style. I also find it hilarious that you included the sober disclaimer. I trip up all the time/am a klutz so I feel like me intoxicated would be flat-out mortifying.

Kimmiepooh said...

This is such a simple, chic look. Where I am it's freezing right now, lol, but this would be the perfect outfit to wear in early spring when it's warm enough to wear shorts but you still feel a breeze.

Glad I found your blog!

xoxo,
Kim

I love how casual yet chic your style is! Good luck w/ job finding!! Really. You should find a job in fashion, writing, or social media work - you have a lot of personal, entrepreneurial experience w/ it already.

Happy 2011!
