So how does one do trousers on casual Friday?
Why, with a pair of trouser jeans, of course!
Okay, these aren’t technically trouser jeans, but the bootcut leg gives the illusion of such. Also, the dark wash elevates it from your normal informal denim so I’m dubbing them trousers.
I’d toyed with the idea of pairing these with a fun graphic tee, but I’m a bit bloaty this week and I didn’t want to subject you to my lovely muffin, so flowy top it is. Also, I think I’ve had my fill of neutrals.
(Yesterday’s outfit left me feeling a bit blah – what with the white walls, gray floors and an inadvertent monochromatic look. In retrospect, I shoulda worn bright red lipstick or a vibrant scarf for a pop of color.)
Anyhoo, I always feel best when I wear black up close to my face, and this polka dot number is one of the few flowy black tops I own. Choosing it was a total no-brainer. And because I’d alluded to rocker chic-ness earlier this week, I give you a moto jacket and boots. Boots! Ah, fall! Thank goodness you’ve arrived!
In other news…
I wonder if my loyal readers care about shopping links. Frankly, finding the links to similar items – especially ones that are seasons old – adds an extra hour or three to my blogging time, and if no one really bothers clicking on them, then I wouldn’t be averse to getting rid of them altogether. I sure would appreciate replies to this question; I hate spinning my wheels if I’m going nowhere.
