Happy New Year to everyone! If you follow me on Snapchat and Instagram, you know that I spent Xmas in Oslo. Oslo was wonderful, albeit bitter cold and mostly shut down due to the holidays, and I came back with a renewed interest in Scandinavian minimalism. Right before I left, I received this amazing jacket and pants from I Love Ugly and was so excited to shoot in them. I love a pair of pants with tons of bells and whistles and pockets and zippers, and the Zespy pants offers all that in a sleek, bad boy profile. I always shy away from cargo pants because they just bulk up my legs, but these offer flush pockets that any athlete can wear without doubling the size of their calves. The jacket, well… I play for Team Nonsense on most days, as most people my age do when we have to deal with jobs we don’t like, teachers who are on a mission to make our lives miserable or frenemy dramas that defy explanation. So we might as well call it like we see it. By the way, the fact that we shot this in front of the Louvre in no way reflects my feelings toward the Museum or I.M. Pei’s pyramid 😉
If you’re feeling the love for this style as much as I am, let @iloveugly know on Instagram!
