What Became of the Likely Lads

Denim has been growing on me recently. I used to despise it, because of the sea of blue jeans you see every time you look at a Czech street. I'm nowhere near wearing the typical jeans and a T-shirt uniform though, it still needs to be something high-waisted, oversized, and a bit awkward.
I ordered these shorts, because I wanted something basic that I could lie around in forever, which is exactly what I've been doing, and that would work with many other things. In this (Monday's) outfit, I was inspired mainly by Korean street menswear, which has been flooding my Tumblr, mainly Kim Won Joong, a model and designer, whose off-duty style is great and quirky. It's something very basic, tomboy-ish, and comfortable. The atmosphere of the photos reminds me of The Libertines' 'What Became of the Likely Lads'... A socialist-looking kitchen, an urban flat, ennui, and bubbles that pop when they reach the ground.

HIGH-WAISTED DENIM SHORTS - C/O CHICNOVA, METRIC T-SHIRT - C/O 15TH LANE, CITY PRINT SOCKS - C/O CHICNOVA, BLACK CREEPERS - MONKI, ROUND GLASSES - OXFORD VINTAGE FAIR

I swear my 'obsession' with rulers is just a coincidence. Metric = 'An adjective that describes something as making more sense, better, and/or more awesome than any other possibility.' Urban Dictionary

    Then..I didn't recognize the kitchen at first !!!
    + I have it absolutely the same...My closet is so filled with denim I used to despite so much... I guess I blame Key though XD

    1. Thank you, dear. (I'd never noticed how photogenic the kitchen was before!)
      As for denim, I'm not entirely sure who it is to blame, but I'm a bit amazed, wearing denim shorts as I write this. :D
