OOTD: layered hoodies and gold sneakers - an exploration

i love these shoes! they're totally over the top. these shoes have taken the wedge-sneaker-with-big-tongue trend and just barfed disco steroids all over it...my kinda shoe! they're also ridiculously comfortable and not $400 - they're Steve Madden from the mall, yeehaw!

normally i wouldn't wear a hoodie by it's lonesome - unless i was going to the gym or having a super schlubby weekend day and picking up some overnight ultra thin maxi pads with wings from the drugstore - yup, that's how i roll, i don't like tampons at night! anywaaaays, i do dig a hoodie layered under a jacket, it really shows that you're embracing the layered look by having a giant hood hanging out from your collar...there's something Boston college student chic about it.

this outfit was actually what i wore for my 3:30AM wake-up to shoot pumpkin DIYs on KTLA news - check out the videos here! nothing says "hello, i'm awake and ready to craft!" like some high-waisted, mint corduroy pants! duuuh.
