I sometimes scroll through my own Instagram feed and think ‘do I only wear denim?’. And 90% of the time it’s true. So I’ve made a conscious effort to ditch the jeans and wear proper trousers. Or ‘slacks’ as my mum likes to describe them.
And actually, it’s quite liberating, not to mention comfortable. Khaki trousers are my new best friend, I wear my Madewell ones so often that I got these Gap ones as a back-up – they’re super soft and the wide leg fray keeps them looking modern. I like wearing them with lace-up shoes to elongate the leg as cropped wide-leg trousers can leave you legs looking a bit stumpy.
In terms of colour, khaki is the shade to buy into – it looks so good with denim, stripes, leather – well, most things really. I am pairing it with red as well for a stronger clash. Here, I’ve kept it pretty basic with a quirky tee (is there any other type of tee, right now?!) and my trusty leather jacket which is perfect for this spring weather.
I bought this kitten tee back in January so think it has sold out – it’s definitely a conversation starter! I’m allergic to fur so not really a cat person, but on my tee? That I can do…
So thank you to my Blog, for forcing me to address my recent style rut – sometimes a self imposed deadline is just what I needed…
Long may the slack continue (and may we switch those for shorts and sundresses soon!).
