This Summer I’ve been all about trousers. The wide-legged variety in silky fabrics and juicy shades. The kind that billow as you walk, keeping your legs deliciously cool. Trousers that look glamorous dressed up with heels or take on a bohemian edge when paired with sandals.
Back in June I found two pairs of delightful vintage palazzo pants in the op shop. One pair was gunmetal grey and the other a rich green. Both were pleated in the most yummy satiny fabric. At a mere $3 apiece I knew I had to have them. As I walked home in sleeting rain, I imagined how often I would wear such trousers once the weather warmed up. And I was totally right.
These trousers have become a staple in my Summer wardrobe. This past Sunday I slipped on a pair to wear while reading my book on the lawn, eating dinner with my parents and then doing a spot of yoga.
I am wearing:
- Green satin palazzo pants (vintage)
- White butterfly studded tank top from Jeans West
- Tan sandals from Rubi Shoes
- Art deco earrings from Lovisa
As simple as this outfit was, I felt so comfortable and cool as I relaxed and dined with my family. I like unfussy Summer fashion, preferring to stick to a few striking pieces and leave the layering for the cooler months.
What item have you been wearing non-stop this Summer? Or this Winter, for my Northern-hemisphere-dwelling readers?
Such a fun top! The sparkly butterfly on it reminds me of those wee pronged butterfly hair clips that were all the rage in the late 90s. When I look back on that time frame, they were definitely one of my favourite fashion elements. I’d probably still wear them if I had any kicking around. 🙂
How are you as we head towards the end of March, my sweet friend? It’s hard to believe we’re this far into the year already.
Spring is slowwwwwlllllyyyyyy inching its way out here, though the last few mornings + nights have been more wintry feeling an we almost wondered if it was going to snow (thankfully, not yet). That said my wardrobe mind set is very much towards the new season and I’ve already started busting out the pastels, straw accessories and sundresses. In particular, I’m super feeling the colour purple right now, so it will most likely appear in some upcoming outfit posts.
I hope that you’re doing well and having a splendid holiday weekend!
I’m doing very well indeed! I definitely get a 90’s vibe from this butterfly tank top. Butterflies were on everything in the 90’s, huh? I had so many of those hair clips, as well as butterfly earrings, rings, tee shirts and even a pencil case that was covered in glittering butterflies. I still own many of the rings and earrings, and even a few brooches in the shape of butterflies. I don’t think I’ll ever outgrow them.
Ooooh, I’m so excited to see your Spring outfits. I was overjoyed at the purple and lime green ensemble you were sporting earlier in the month, and I look forward to living vicariously through you as you enjoy the warmer change in the weather, as things are finally beginning to cool down here.
