I Have Wanted To Do This For Years
The first time that I wanted to wear wool shorts in cool/cold weather (I think that it was Winter at the time), I was still in university. I can't be sure, but I think that I may have bought a pair of wool shorts to wear, either that year or the following year. I hung onto them for a couple of years. I never wore them and, eventually, I gave them away. A couple of years ago, I bought another pair of wool shorts. I guess that I never let go of the idea of wearing wool shorts in cool/cold weather. Today, I finally got around to wearing the wool shorts. I know exactly the shot from the fashion editorial that I wanted to mimic when I put today's outfit, including the shorts, together. I have no idea, though, what made me, after so many years, put wool shorts on.
I am trying to decide between buying a certain cropped winter coat and a certain jacket. Part of the reason it is so hard to decide is that I am fairly sure that, whatever item I decide not to buy, it will be lost to me forever. I have no idea whether that will matter to me. At the moment, I find both items equally attractive.
I am wearing an old shawl collar pullover sweater by JCrew, old wool shorts by Zara, an old leather belt from the Gap, an old vest from LLBean and a cropped duffle coat from Old Navy. My tights are old from H&M and my boots are old by Fluevog.
