What I Wore: Warms with White


I know I just said last week that I was thinking about not doing these anymore. But then it warmed up outside and was sunny, and I had an outfit I liked the colors of and wanted to capture. So here you have it. Not quite done with the style posts just yet. 🙂

These are not the first white pants I’ve owned (ok, they’re the second) but they’re the first ones I’ve actually felt comfortable wearing. The material is sturdy corduroy, so there’s no see-thru factor in the hindquarters region, which you know is sometimes a problem with light-colored pants. The whole point of putting on pants is so your underwear doesn’t show, so it’s always seemed odd to me that companies make pants so thin and light-colored that others can still see your underwear anyway. But anyway, not an issue with these, thankfully. And they are soft, which is always a plus. Actually, everything in this outfit is extremely soft and comfortable. It’s amazing I got anything done when I wore this on Monday.

I originally was wearing this cardigan over top, but it just wasn’t working. Then I switched to this burgundy one, and instantly loved it. Also, this cardigan in general is awesome. Four ways to wear it: open, draped (there’s a magnet that holds one side up), partially zipped (like below) or fully zipped. And it has pockets. And the asymmetric zipper just adds some interest, I think. Confession: I own this cardigan in four different colors, I love it that much: charcoal, oatmeal, burgundy, and forest green. I don’t know how they haven’t turned up on the blog before now, because I wear them all the time.

What I Wore: Winter Mint

I know, I know. You guys were probably at least expecting snow on the ground with that title. But hey, I live in Austin. It was chilly out for these parts (I wore this on Sunday). And if it makes you northerners feel better, there was hail in the forecast when I checked the weather for the week. Admittedly, that was also on Sunday and it doesn’t look like that’s in the cards (or the clouds, rather) anymore. But it was cold enough I didn’t feel like taking off my coat, so there’s that. This is my version of taking […]
