Façade

Boy. by Band of Outsiders shirt, Anthropologie sweat shorts, Topshop tights, I.T booties

These shorts are made from the most comfortable lounging sweat material yet the waistline is like dress pants, they dress down the the outfit while still remaining tailored, which works with this button up that is just so perfectly constructed and fitted I didn't even have to bring it to my tailor to chop up. Juxtaposed in front of this long-abandoned factory that is now just a façade, I have a fascination with desolate lots and lonely places no one frequents anymore.

  2. That's really interesting pair of shorts! Love the background of these photos. It really gives the photos a whole lot of darker mood.

  12. The sweat shorts looks so dressy! I love that you paired it with a simple white blouse! I love going to abandoned buildings too but it's always important to have someone with you because it might not be safe. xoxoxoo
