What better day to post these scholarly photographs than the first day back to school? Summer may be coming to an end but there’s a promise of better outfit days in the Autumn – a crisp blazer never harmed nobody. My outfit here is sophisticated prep school meets transgressive student – fashionably – out of uniform; a look I am all too familiar with. I was forever altering my high school uniform to add some chic to my everyday as a 17 year old. Do I ever wish I could’ve worn these soft jersey sweat shorts back then; rope detail adds a touch of the nautical nose-snub. I colour-blocked with a grey cotton tank from Club Monaco, white blazer from H&M, and Dodo la Parisienne ballet flats (that have been through the ringer this summer). Double band chain ring by Made Her Think available at Kavut.com. What’s a bougie outfit without a Gucci bag? The token stripe means access to the cool kid’s lunch table in the cafeteria. Duh. Speaking of cool kids, big thanks to Alexander Liang for shooting and inspiring these photographs!
