Mori Boy Guide

I discovered this interesting “guide” for Mori Boys :)
I hope you like it!         


  • Enjoys looking comfortable yet eccentric, through use of eclectic patterns & textures
  •  While colors range from light to dark, they are likely to be unsaturated, seemingly bleached by the sun or having a worn-in look
  • Likes to wear interesting fibers, like: fur, leather&suede, wool, linen, bamboo
  • Prefer more detailed fabrics to simple ones, like a textured knit to stockingette, or herringbone or tweed to plain weave.
  • Shoes are rugged and utilitarian, but can also be a bit stylish.
  • Worn in leather boots and wool topsiders are popular, but mocassins. traditional japanese sandals and even battered western sneakers like New Balances also work, as long as the color coordinates.
  •  Wants to look like wanderer, may accessorize with tools like binoculars or compass’
  • Will usually carry a bag, backpacks and large leather or canvas satchels are roomy and sturdy
  • Hair can be short to long, but has a unstyled tousled look, bed head is ok, especially if its curly (LOL)
  • Loves scarves of the thick and chunky variety, can be knit, felted, or even a fur stole
  • Often wears a statement cardigan or jacket, what it is is totally up to personal preference, but is often a major element of the outfit. Common examples are large gauge sweaters, cardigans with pattern or large buttons, or haori with a large printed pattern.
  • Likes vintage style, but stays away from the fussier elements of western clothing


  • Enjoys working with hands, hobbies like gardening, crafting, cooking, etc.
  • Loves to read, and maybe write, may daydream about vintage typewriters (Not necessarily, that’s a little antiquated hehe, seems too much stereotyped, or hipster -_-) 
  • Likes animals, and may even look to specific ones for outfit inspiration
  • Prefer to appear quiet and wild, mysterious. (just calmed, haha)
  • Enjoys outings that allow for discovery, like wandering in the country or a new part of town.
  • Might settle down in a coffee shop for longer than average.
  • Likes to take photos of adventures, but may lack for photos of themselves (they are behind the camera!)
  • Whether openly or not, may believe in fairies and other folkloric characters or spirits.
  • Has an interest in music, whether playing or listening, especially unusual instruments like harpsichord or ocarina. (lol, I like sax, or guitar…)
  • Is a collector of objects, usually small things they think are under appreciated
  • Often found in thrift, vintage shops, flea markets
  • Enjoys museums, especially ones with dioramas
  • If the choice is present, prefers rustic and wholesome food & drink, not necessarily veg/vegan (you don’t have to be vegan, gosh)
  •  Hot drink connoisseur

         Wardrobe Basics:

  • Try to stick with mostly unsaturated colors like ecru, deep navy or cadet blue, khaki green, burgundy, charcoal, chambray blue, sage, etc. most colors have a place, as long as they can be described as “rustic” or “earthy”
  • Bright colors can be included too, but can be more difficult to stay distinctly “mori”(I’m not agree)
  • Patterned or lightly textured button down shirts. chambray, flannel, and printed cotton are easy to find.
  • T-shirts with henley neck detailing or waffle texture
  • Bold & simple patterned sweater that can go with many outfits, ecru and navy dot or stripe is prefect.
  • Bottoms can be most any type of rugged pant, even trousers if they are worn. even wide culotte pants or  wrap skirts are fine, just try to keep the forest wanderer element here.
  • Good starter bottoms would be straight legged corduroy or denim pants in a khaki or faded blue.
  • This style is not for minimalists, it usually requires layering, even in summer, for the right look (You can do it as you wish). Thats not to say you have to wear long pants, socks, cardigan, button down etc when its sweltering, but wearing a lot of items at once is almost essential.
  • Good starter shoes might be leather boots for cool weather and short desert boots or Birkenstocks for warm weather.

Since summer is a difficult topic in all mori styles, a nice mori boy summer outfit might be:

  1. Khaki shorts with a leather belt
  2. Interesting crew length socks (to show color or pattern)
  3. Short sleeve button down, with a flower or other brooch
  4. Talisman style necklace worn over shirt
  5. Backpack & watch
  6. Hat (lots of options: straw boater, vintage felt, twill newsboy, etc, again color is important)

So, you can wear a lot of things but not be all covered up!


ottersandotherstuff  asked:

For that latest list of prompts, can you have Bellamy be the food blogger?

Sure! Full prompt here: “I can’t cook for shit and my mother keeps telling me i’ll never become anything if i can’t even make a proper meal and i somehow stumbled upon your food blog and it has now saved me so many times i just wanted to let you know about my gratitude in this oddly long, ridiculously personal email’ au


The strange part is, she doesn’t so much as find his blog as much as she stumbles upon it.

Someone had left his page up on one of the library computers without logging off, and she found herself skimming the page with little interest at first. Clarke had never gotten the hang of the whole cooking thing anyway- having subsisted on takeout and ramen throughout her college years- and had bristled at the exaggerations of how easy his recipes were. Honestly, it seemed a little presumptuous to assume that someone with entirely no cooking experience could whip up something like rugelach, so.

She had tried out the first recipe out of spite and spite alone, the second because she was bored and, well. Needless to say, she was pretty much a convert by the time his blog started gaining traction. (It didn’t hurt that he- or Blake, as stated on his blog- was handsome too, all tanned skin and wide smiles in the few selfies he posted up. So Clarke might have a small crush on her favorite blogger, and may have possibly left a few long, rambly comments on his posts, shut up)

A tiny part of her recognized that he was based in her area, too, but she had never even considered running into him. It was pretty unlikely, considering how many people actually lived here, so it’s not like she ever dwelled on it.

Which is why she’s not exactly sure how to react when she realises he’s standing just two feet away from her.

He catches her staring, grins. “Sorry, did you need to get by?”

Salvatore Ferragamo Men's RTW Spring 2015

This ultrasophisticated Salvatore Ferragamo collection was aimed squarely at the city dweller — rather than his seaside counterpart — and steered clear of summer wardrobe clichés.

Creative director Massimiliano Giornetti worked a color palette that included petrol, cinnamon, burgundy, and mellow yellow into soft and subtly patterned tailoring, textured knitwear and edgy footwear. He put a focus on outerwear, especially long, fluid coats so lightweight they were almost transparent. Some had hoods, while others were worn with rolled-up cuffs lined with a jaunty giraffe print.
Suits had a sporty, workwear feel with zip-front or belted, safarilike jackets, while trousers were loose-fitting and cuffed. Giornetti also made a powerful statement with knitwear, turning out sweaters with open V-neck collars or magnified waffle textures, while footwear had a utilitarian feel, with thick soles and fringes. This collection was not for every man, but the Ferragamo man will no doubt cut quite a figure on the asphalt beaches of Milan or Manhattan.


alive. [707/MC] [MINOR SPOILERS]

You couldn’t afford to take a jab at how it was seemingly okay for you spill all your dreams while his were still vacuum-sealed.

Because someone had to write the obligatory “there’s only one bed in this abandoned cabin so we’re gonna have to share it” fic. Also I finished this game last night and I don’t know who I am anymore. [WARNING: Minor spoilers up to Day 10 of 707’s Route!]

All things considered, this was probably no different from what happened, and yet what should have happened, when you were still at Rika’s apartment. A little less than Zen’s expectations, a little more than Seven’s.

No, Luciel—

No, Saeyoung. He was Saeyoung. He always was, but now he actually let himself be.
