Stripes & Corduroy

Im writing this post from a place of confusion and intramural emotions. I gotta give myself an entirety mind, body & soul reset while keeping my eye on the prize and rolling w/ the punches amongst a shitty situation because fuck it – the show must go on.  Im taking deep gasps and exhales reminding myself when you feel lost and tangled, distinguish each sound. And when there is none, let the rhythm of your own breath bring you back to state of peace & presence. 

With that being said, moving on – –  I am an admirer of patterned stripes anything as it furthermore grabs my attention. For a bit, I have been eyeballing a sweatshirt online by Nike throw on and go crewneck w/ dropped shoulders, stripped design, Nike swoosh logo and relaxed fit for a slouchy silhouette. At first, I wasn’t so quick to buying the sweater being too pricey for my liking. I figured, if its meant to be I’ll catch it on sale which eventually I did for 50% off few weeks later.

I instantly knew the crewneck would work well w/ my classic high top Chuck Taylors from Converse that features a vintage inspired wale wide corduroy fabric and topped w/ the iconic All Star patch and insole for maximum comfort. I mingled in wearing thrifted light washed jeans w/ my tan-ish brown corduroy fanny pack with zippered front pockets and a top closure, grosgrain waist belt strap, and a release buckle closure which I picked up from Forever21 on a whim during the fall. Although, both corduroy items both have different shades of brown, it still all mixes well. To finish off the look, I threw my hair up in faux bangs w/ a sheer white thrifted head scarf to channel my inner love for the 50’s & 60’s era as mixing it w/ modern times. Added some blue eye shadow, my signature cat eye, lip gloss & gold hoop earrings.
