Fashion Over Reason: There's a Hole in my Knee

There's a Hole in my Knee

Long coat Club Monaco chunky All Saints knit scarf

My mother would not approve, but to hell with that, i like a good rip in my knee and I'm not going to apologize for that. I am an adult, after all. In fact, this particular pair is so old, the holes keep getting bigger and bigger, which makes these jeans better and better. Took some scissors to them for a little length update and that's the story.

And speaking of history, I also have a long-time love affair with the sneakers I'm wearing: Adidas Gazelles. You see, I had a pair in the early 90s when I was in fifth grade, blue and white ones, as they were the coolest shoes to have. Sadly, they were eventually outgrown (although I'm not quite sure that my feet have actually grown since my childhood, they are ridiculously small) and I moved on to things like Doc Martens. So when this whole sneaker trend resurfaced, there was only one pair on my mind: the Gazelles. My initial plan was to go back to my roots and nab the blues once more -- full circle style. But my heart kind of skipped a beat when I laid eyes on this aubergine pair and the rest is... history, ha!

I've definitely been hesitant about trying the sneaker trend-you know, sneakers with skirts, jeans, etc. It used to be a no-no, but seeing your outfit, I don't see any reason why I shouldn't jump in head first! I love your gazelles-the color suits you!
