Annnnnd I'm basically living in wide legged crops right now. They kinda feel like a boyfriend jean, kinda lay like a trouser, and kinda feel completely fresh for spring. On colder days I pair them with ankle boots and a wrap (which also happens to be perfect for weekend dressing). On warmer days I break out my red pumps and a healthy swath of lipstick (which makes for wonderful weekday dressing).
Being able to wear a piece of clothing more than one way is so important to me. If a piece looks good with only one kind of shoe or for one specific scenario I won't often make the purchase. If it doesn't make me feel attractive AND cool AND comfortable what's the point of having it? Does it serve my highest self? Does it tell the world exactly who I am? Or does it show only a charicature of me? These are things I ask myself when I stand in front of the mirror evaluating an outfit. I want my wardrobe to be fully integrated and dresing to be easy and fun. But more than that, I want my spirit and smarts to be the first thing people notice when I enter a room, and I think this happens when I can 'forget' what I'm wearing by selecting outfits from my beloved collection of worn-in multitaskers. Like these cropped wide legs I'm wearing all the time. Ok. Done preaching.
And yes, I'm hosting Friday Finds Link-Up today. Have a great weekend!
