I almost titled this post "Joe Cool" because that's how I feel in this pose. I need sunglasses and a wall to lean against...anyway.
I love these pants - the color and shape are just perfect, and I have to make a conscious effort not to wear them every day. They’re actually ankle pants, which I’ve always felt is a weird length, but I think because these pants are so slim, it works.
I feel very WASP-y in this outfit (hence the pearls) - it’s actually something that I don’t usually wear. You may have noticed that I tend towards dresses, ethnic prints, and flowy silhouettes, so I’m outside of my box, even though I feel very conservative. I still really like it, though. And the pearl earrings were a gift from my aunt that she got in the Philippines, so they're still kind of ethnic, even if you can't really tell.
I felt like this was a nice mix of structured and soft – the striped button-down (I know it’s hard to tell), vest, and straight pants feel very structured to me, but then the light, pastel colors softened the whole thing.
Overall, I really like this outfit, despite the fact that it’s so different from the things I normally wear. I can do preppy too! Yay!
