Late Navy

Navy swing cardigan, Mossimo or Merona or something with an “M” from Target. Orange sweater vest, Cherokee. Lace blouse, H&M (via swap). Red and orange tweed pants, Moda International. Orange brooch, thrifted. Brown booties, Style & Co. Gold watch, Raymond Weil.

I woke up two hours late this morning. I guess I haven’t really figured out how my new alarm works. Thank goodness my outfit was preselected. I’ve got greasy hair and minimal make-up, though, so be kind in the comments. By skipping a shower and my usual, lengthy make-up routine, I made up enough time to only be one hour late to work.

It’s nearly impossible to get a flattering photograph of myself in these pants. No matter my weight or the pose, they put my lower half in the spotlight. Honestly, the trousers don’t seem quite so attention-grabbing in person.

Kasmira, I love you swing cardigan. The colour is great, but the shape is fabulous. I wanted one for myself, but I am a bit afraid of being too bulky on the breast part and spoiling the effect.

Navy and orange. Great! I have to try it someday.

God, I love the colour of the trousers!

Oh, love this one. I think I'm always worried about swing silhouettes with wide leg trousers but you look absolutely fantastic.

This cardigan is so lovely. It's the first times I comment, but i'm visiting your blog since november or something like that.
