It’s baaaaaaaaack! Threads is back! I’ve missed doing these posts but the past 6 months have been so up in the air filled with insanity that the threads sabbatical has been quite nice. It’s usually easier for me to get on board with Fall as opposed to Summer fashion any way. It’s been fun to look back at last year’s posts and see how much my wardrobe has changed. I can say with confidence that I’m super please with my clothes these days. Nearly all of them I’ve purchased specifically to clothe myself in my new life–this life. This wonderful crazy, somewhat, ok very stressful graduate school life I’m now living.
It’s so funny how much my wardrobe will fluctuate in terms of colors patterns etc and then return to it’s resting state: black. Yes, black is my favorite color. Not in a morbid, goth, or I-hate-the-world way but in a… comfortable state of self kind of way. Good gravy, I really do love the monochrome.
On this particular day, (last Sunday to be exact) it actually felt like Fall in sunny Florida. There was a touch of cool in the air, and the light had that beautiful autumn paleness to it. My favorite. I went to campus to study with some colleagues in the art library. So I was going for comfort and a slight deviation from my day to day. (I don’t wear jeans when I’m working or in class)
Jeans- Levi Strauss
Pleather jacket- thrifted
Not pictured-some vegan pleather biker boots, origins unknown (meaning I forgot where I got them…)
I’ve taken to wearing a knife in recent months. I honestly consider it just as much of an accessory as a scarf or bangle. A good friend gave it to me as a going away gift and I can’t even begin to list the ways it’s been incredibly useful to me since. Slicing up my snack fruit plums or apples is a cinch and opening all the boxes and packages I need to in my admin job couldn’t be easier. My mom always carried a Swiss army knife with her in her purse when I was a kid and it helped out so often with all the little things I’d need opened or sliced here and there. If you’re looking for a solid little pocket knife, I highly highly recommend this one. Also makes a great gift.
The cat who matches my wardrobe…
Assembled, in an Instagrammed car selfie. New cut too! I’m loving it. And I loved wearing this outfit. The perfect combination of cute and comfortable, campus and weather appropriate while fitting into my current style aesthetic. Who says that vegans can’t be edgy and fashion forward?!
Can’t wait for more days like this one. It’s been around 90 degrees here lately, but is going to get down into the upper 70’s this week. I can’t believe that’s “cool” for me now! :)
