Casual Friday | Double Stripes
So, as you’ve probably worked out by now, for this ‘Casual Friday’ series (now into its third week in a row, people: go, me!), I’m choosing to interpret “casual” as simply “outfits in which I’m wearing trousers”. By doing that, I can totally get away with wearing stilettos and whatever else I fancy, because trousers = casual as far as I’m concerned. Sometimes I may choose to interpret “causal” as “outfits in which I’m wearing flats”, and THAT way I’ll be able to wear fancy prom dresses, because FLATS. You follow the logic, I’m sure.
These trousers are the Collectif ‘Bonnie’ cigarette pants, which I bought for £10 in the sale a few weeks ago, and have been wearing to death ever since. As well as the length, though, I also really like the high waist on these, which helps balance out my stumpy legs a bit, and also allows me to wear them with my growing collection of little cropped sweaters and cardigans.
Speaking of cropped sweaters, this one is from Miss Selfridge, and although it looks yellow and black on their website, it’s actually tan and black in real life, which was a bit of a relief: yellow and black might have made me look a bit like a bee, but these colours just made me look like a cartoon bank robber – all I need is an eye mask and a knit cap, and I’m good to go. Oh, and this time around, I’ve matched my shoes to my top. Had to be done…[separator type=”thin”]
