I actually brought this band jacket home with me from Utah in December, but with LA being so LA, and the jacket being so very wool-y, I couldn’t break it out until the freezing temps of NY.  My mom was out vintage hunting one day and sent me a picture of it with a big (???).  I was like (!!!).  And here we are, months later with patches/pins a blazin’.  

I felt like these over-the-knee boots from Valas Los Angeles were a shoo-in with the jacket, something about the military inspired look of the band jacket and the laces of the boots just screamed “PUT ME TOGETHER!”  So I did, and it works!   The shorts on the other hand, were more of a mistake than anything else.  I was like, I need shorts with these boots! So I went to find shorts in the mess of an apartment that was my life post-move/pre-New York, and these were all that I could dig up.  In order to find out if shorts were going to work with the outfit, I tried them on before searching longer and harder for more shorts.  Et voilá!  Not only would shorts be G-R-E-A-T, this very pair was just right!  

Kind of silly in the cold, I know, but don’t worry!  I had thermals on under all of my clothing, and big snuggy socks under my boots!  I was still freezing, I’m not going to lie to you, it was COLD.  Oh the things we do in the name of fashion…
