Here is what I have been wearing for an entire week, with a few subtle variations. Truth be told, I’m such a creature of habit. Once I get engrossed in a new style-formula discovery, I neglect to wear anything else. Also, I tend wear a certain item day in, day out – in this case these tapered trousers and the Kooples boots. Especially when it comes to bags, I wear only one for months at a time. As for this particular silhouette, I designed it when I was putting together an ensemble for a night out last weekend – probably my go-to outfit for nights out as of now (but swap the breton top for an unbuttoned silk button-down shirt).
That said, I have to be honest… I haven’t worn these trousers since January, but due to weight gain they fit like a glove now, so far as I can tell. As you can see from this post, these trousers made my legs look a tad skeletal and I wasn’t mentally comfortable sporting them back then. And all of a sudden, I’ve become relatively self-conscious about wearing completely fitted pants such as skinny jeans. I suppose it takes time to get used to my body’s physical changes. Nonetheless, it’s just a shame that the pictures don’t do the trousers justice at all. The fit is ultimately impeccable!
Incidentally, I must admit I haven’t been an avid advocate of posting photos of this nature since I reincarnated this blog roughly a year ago. I just recently started to include many outfit shots, perhaps out of habit. I like the idea of curating a style blog that incorporates visual pictures of the curator’s style – after all, that’s what I love seeing on the style blogs I frequent. My Mommy Style and Garderoben are two great examples. Regardless, I dress rather simple, basic and probably boring according to people. Nothing extraordinary or innovative. Sometimes it strikes me that my outfit photos are beyond basic, and I also start wondering if they are blog-worthy at all. Despite that, I am partial to seeing outfits of this nature on other style blog curators (for reference, check out the aforementioned blogs). Anyway, do I post too many photos? Too many details and so on…? Any thoughts and feedback are appreciated. (I wish to cater to my readers because, at the end of the day, you are the visitors of this blog…)
