Slouch

Somewhere in this personal style diary of mine, I clearly remember stating that I wasn’t particularly fond of the “pyjama dressing” trend…well, just look at what I’m wearing today!!

I’d been yearning to create another outfit around these slouchy printed pants for a little while now (remember them from my “Style 3-Play: Denim Jacket Look Two” post?) and as I was experimenting, I surprised myself – in a very pleasant way! – with this blue-on-blue combination!!

My lightweight tunic top has such an easy silhouette that I really didn’t think it would work well with the equally relaxed feel of the pants; after all, contrast is usually the name of the game when creating an interesting look, right??

But rules are meant to be broken (in more ways than one, apparently!) and I just kept coming back to this particular pairing…although how would I keep things “street-style chic” and not “sleep-over slovenly??” By adding my brown Nine West heels and some long, layered necklaces to the mix, of course!!

Ta da!!  My very own interpretation of a trend that I thought I didn’t like!!  But in the end, dear readers, shouldn’t that truly be our ultimate goal?!  After all, that’s what turns plain old “fashion” into “style!!”

      Breezy pants like this are amazing for hot days, dearest Veronika…much better than shorts, in my opinion!! And all I can think about right now is my new blog look debuting tomorrow; excited is an understatement!! 😀

    I can understand you very well. I have also said, such pair of pants I will never wear. For the reason, because I am not sure how to wear it best. Heels are a very good option. You look so adorable in it. Like this outfit very much 🙂

    I'm not a fan of "pyjama dressing" either, but these pants look nothing like pyjamas dear Monika! 🙂 I really like the print and that you wore the with super high heels. Great look!

      Lovely Anett…I remember your own hesitation about wearing a similar pair of soft pants like this a few weeks ago!! Of course, you styled them up beautifully…and now we BOTH know that "pyjama" isn't necessarily a bad word when it comes to daytime dressing!! 😉
