I’m still in a “Holy crackers, it’s too hot and I can’t find anything to wear” sort of mood, in spite of the fact that we had a lovely thunderstorm last night which relieved at least a little of the heat. When I’m in this mood, I’m completely dissatisfied with most of the clothes I usually love (except for these shoes, apparently) and find myself looking more towards my closet’s orphans. Yesterday I wore an orphaned yellow skirt. And today I’m wearing orphaned grey pants:
Yesterday’s orphan acquitted itself rather well, and I think today’s orphan is too. These pants are years old and, like yesterday’s skirt, I think I’ve only worn them once. Today though, I decided to pair the pants (Gap) with what appears to be my favorite white tank (Design History via Ross) and my increasingly ubiquitous blue platforms (MRKT via DSW). I finished the look with some blue and white jewelry, including these earrings:
|I didn't notice the rust before I posted this, but, I still like them.|
I have no idea why I never wear these pants. I even have a khaki version that I never wear either. I think that they maybe used to be a little big for me? Or I thought they did funny things to my thighs? I don’t know. They seem to be okay today though, so maybe I’ll give this pair another shot and maybe even try the khakis (maybe; they are khaki, after all).
I’ll end with my usual Friday advice: have a good weekend! And also, try to stay cool and if you’re on the East Coast, stay safe!
Happy Friday, All!
