Leonard Cohen Afterworld


I bet you're probably wondering why I'm not wearing pants. Have I gone insane? Do I desperately want to be featured on the next installment of "Don't Show-cha Your Chocha"? Nay nay, friends. Jean shorts are here to save the day, not to mention my dignity.

It's not much of an outfit (literally), but who needs one when you're busy reading The Great Gatsby, knitting, eating pie and just being a bum in general.

I love this look "Bringing Nirvana into the home" (I am so TMing that).
Love the leopard pumps, they add glmaour to your informal look. Hope your pie is good.

I think the shirt looks cool and vintage. I wish I knew how to knit, I'd definitely make a hat.

That looks like a perfect lazy summer outfit. The Great Gatsby is a really good summer read.

Super comfy outfit - something I would totally wear. And it's so perfect for a reading and knitting day.

I'm pretty much living in an oversized band tee so I'm glad to see bloggers dressing for comfort sometimes too!

The Six Six Sick Girls said...

Adorable outfit---now lets so the results of all that knitting!

Amelia said...

Re your comment: I actually just skipped over high school entirely. There's an early entrance program at my university, so I could get in without a high school diploma.
