After coming to the conclusion that I was running out of shoes [yes — really], I decided to unearth an old, mud-covered favourite. After considerable scrubbing, I remembered why these trainers received such a beating. My obsession with these Supergas partially stemmed from their status as “those shoes from the Blonde Salad collaboration.” Chiara Ferragni (AKA The Blonde Salad), usually designs shoes for her own line, but this collaboration with Superga makes her style (slightly) more accessible. The pony hair camouflage print is cool enough to incite envy, yet subdued enough to be worn anytime, anywhere. Unfortunately, I didn’t understand their versatility, and I instead relegated them to the status of “going out shoes.”Why did they receive this unfortunate fate? Well, the problem I faced [back then and now], was styling these trainers in an original yet practical way.

Thankfully, H&M has proven to be a wealth of trendy yet somewhat affordable/practical clothes to work with. This lingerie inspired camisole is a smart contrast against the thicker sweater. Emphasizing this contrast, the light body chain is a unique yet subtle addition (yes — I know what some people say they mean. And honestly, I don’t care ;). The trench coat overtop not only adds necessary warmth, but it also keeps the look more “styled” and less “boring.” To finish this look, I rocked a matching camouflage backpack [not shown], as a rebellion against subtlety.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and the photos by Yelim Lee!

    Working contrasts! Nicely done.
    Camo and Christianity.
    Silky and chunky textures
    Opposites on the color wheel
    Very sophisticated ‘ensam’
