On days when I have a lot of errands, I just want to be casual and comfortable. Though I'd still like to look cute and dolly if I can help it! Inspired by BJD schoolboys, I created this outfit: casual, comfortable, cute, and innocent. (Because students are innocent, right?)
Sailor collar: handmade by me (it was my first project ><)
Oxford shirt: Dongdaemun Migliore, 10,000KRW
Pleated shorts: Tokyo Fashion
Thigh high socks: Gmarket, 2,500KRW
Shoes: Payless, ~$27
The student-feeling with this outfit also makes me want to go to the library and study~
Haha! Coincidentally, this makes my nickname 작은번 (Little Bun) all the more befitting. My boyfriend is 큰번 (Big Bun) while I am Little Bun. And we mean bread buns, not butt buns!
- High pigtails keep my hair from getting in the way. It does wonders to keep me stay focused on my work, while looking oh-so- cute as well. I actually didn’t do a great job on my hair, but oh well, you get the point!
- The shorts are very airy and roomy thanks to their outward flare. This extra leg room is priceless for days where I have to walk a lot!
- The oxford shirt actually has a collar of its own, which my sailor collar is merely sitting ontop of. This double-layering creates a very round shoulder line, which I think is cute and child-like. Sharp and broad shoulders look more grown-up, I think. And in the future I will pin the collar to my shirt so that it doesn’t bounce around ><
I will definitely be tweaking this general formula to create more outfits! I currently have two ideas in mind:
Preppy boy: If I swap the collar for a sweater tied around my shoulders, it’ll be like preppy guy style. I’ll also have to change the socks and shoes for lighter colors and leathery loafers.
- Pretty and feminine: Instead of my sailor collar, I can instead use a simple brown ribbon tied into a bow. The sailor collar is a bit cartoonish. A simple brown bow would look more feminine and even older. In that case, I would let my hair down instead.
What’s your comfortable errand combination?
