It's the warmest it's been in months (not like that's saying much, though) and it appears I'm finally ready to make the transition from mom jeans into MOM SHORTS! I know a lot of people are really anti-shorts-with-tights, but I don't really consider it a taboo. Shorts make my legs look long and I'm not ready for bare legs yet, so rules be damned!
The best part of this outfit is hands down the massive, hole-y, grunge as fuck mohair cardigan that I bought while in Baltimore (I should probably write about that, huh?). It looks exactly like the nubbly cardigan Kurt Cobain wore for Nirvana's MTV Unplugged show in 1993. How many times have I posted this image as inspiring my style? Probably countless.
Anyways, the mohair on my cardigan is so long and stringy that one adorably clueless boy at work asked if my cardigan was made out of sloth hair. Sloths! It was a joke but I think he was kind of spot on.
I think it looks especially awesome with my vintage Nirvana 'Come as You Are' shirt, which was the kindliest gift from Elizabeth of White Lightning.
The purpose of this post is to tell you that mohair, sloths and Nirvana are awesome. This is a FASHION BLOG after all.
