my stuff

hat:UnitedArrows, vest:Ciaopanic, shirt:Obey, denim:APC, boots:Ciaopanic, rucksack:Fjallraven

Remember when I said that all I needed were the perfect pair of boots and I'd be set for a fall uniform? Well I found them. Ciaopanic to the rescue! If you come to Detroit, or I'm around your parts, this is probably what you'll see me wearing. Substitute a flannel and I'm pretty sure this will work for all but the coldest days.

I've had my eye on Fjallraven's kanken rucksack for awhile now and when I saw them at Opening Ceremony in Shibuya, I couldn't resist. Can you tell I like the color green?

The boots in a little more detail. I love crepe souls, so obviously when I saw these, I was sold. The thick sole is super comfortable and I like the sand suede. I may switch the laces to red, but other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.


These bags are really versatile and have been around forever. My favorite feature is how the shoulder straps can be cinched tight and snapped in place, making the bag a tote rather than a rucksack. Perfect for running around the city, a day hike in the bamboo forest, or packing lunch for that picnic you've been meaning to take her on. Don't want to fly to New York or Tokyo to buy it? Get it at Context Clothing.

Oh I've been eying those bags for a while, hoping that just maybe they would go down in price- but I think it looks much better on you than it would on me (my girlie-ness kills a lot of the awesome trends these days).
Ooo and I love those boots too! Though I have to say, sitting in the heat and humidity of New Orleans, I can't imagine wearing layers ever again. Less layers and less moving around is the only way to kinda sorta stay cool. Hopefully it's more fall like back in the ATL.
ps- we love your photo safaris btw! they inspired our NOLA rundowns ;)

Kudos on the outfit! And I dig those boots. The red laces would look good too.
