While this outfit wasn’t nearly as far out of my comfort zone as yesterday’s, it still pushed my boundaries in other ways. A combination of sore feet and a relative lack of creativity yesterday morning landed me with an unexpected conundrum: given the options available, could I wear pants and flats at the same time, and do so in a manner that felt as soft and comfortable as I was hoping to be?
I ended up with this combination, which includes some new-ish proportions for me: with my long-ish torso, relatively short overall height and relatively short legs, I tend not to wear long-waisted tops, particularly not with pants, and I rarely wear non-skinny pants with flats. I’ve tried to bring the visual focus back up with the belted scarf, which reclaims my waist from the expanse of white tee-shirt, while adding some visual interest with the bold scarf print and unconventional pattern mix. It violates the Stacey and Clinton proviso of always dressing to create the tallest, leanest hourglass figure possible, but wins bonus points for enabling me to look like I really wanted to get dressed today…even though I felt like I went to class (and my marathon of subsequent meetings) in my pyjamas.
What do you wear when you don’t feel like getting dressed? How has this evolved over time as your style has evolved and grown?
