Adidas track jacket: (I think) Urban Outfitters
Coral silk button up: thrift store
Vintage tweed trousers: The Loved One (checked out the Pasadena store in February and I'm in love! Definitely a must stop if you're in old town Pasadena)
A few weeks ago I was contacted by Flare Magazine, a cool fashion publication out of Canada asking if I was up for a "styling challenge". Not one to back down from a challenge (especially a fashion related one) I gladly accepted. Boy was I in for a surprise when I read that the challenge involved working a sporty/ athletic piece of clothing into an outfit.
Let's get one thing straight, the terms"sporty" and "athletic" are two words that pretty much mean nothing to me. As a general rule, I don't like, care, or even know the basic rules and premises behind many sports. I have no team affiliations, I have (had) zero school spirit--the whole sports thing just doesn't do it for me. Unfortunately, this general apathy towards athleticism and the sporting world translates directly into my wardrobe.
I thought it was curtains for me.
THANKFULLY, I had remembered that for a bit of time during high school I was heavily into everything The Royal Tenenbaums and because of this, I had amassed quite the Adidas track jacket collection. Over time I grew out of it and gave most of my jackets away but lucky for me I unearthed this single jacket from the depths of my closet. Whew! So thanks Chas Tenenbaum, you really saved the day this time.
