Here's what I wore to work and to teach sewing classes the last few days--a few gray-leaning outfits.
1-3: dark gray-green wool-linen cargo pants (made by me); mixed print gray, dark olive, and mauve print high-low t-shirt (made by me); piano-wire necklace and bracelet; pewter metallic high-top sneakers (Paul Green); taupe trench (Calvin Klein); taupe shoulder bag (Aunts & Uncles).
A bold move for me: No Third Piece! I felt pretty good in this outfit. It was comfortable, which was key for a day of being constantly on my feet and "on."
4-6: black slouchy skinny pants with zipper pockets and bling (MosMosh); gray, sage, ivory and black blurry-starry print tee (made by me); gray leather collarless jacket (Halogen); black belt with studs, rhinestones, and ornate buckle (BedStu); gray shimmer oxfords (Naot, Kedma); black packable raincoat (Cole Haan); taupe shoulder bag as above. High happiness outfit.
7-9: stone wool tuck-front trousers (made by me); gray silk blouse (Vince) under gray and taupe open-weave high-low hem sweater (Hinge); taupe wedge oxfords (Born); green trench (Gallery); taupe shoulder bag as above. I can see I need a longer or shorter coat with these wide-legged trousers. . . . Fortunately, I think the effect looks less odd in movement.
I'm not loving these trousers, as much as I want to. But I like this outfit with them best of all I've tried so far.
Your thoughts? Thanks for looking!
