I spent some of Monday hanging out with Peta of Trainee Mama, and I managed to get her to take a couple of quick outfit snaps for Styling You’s Everyday Style while we were cruising the Plaza looking for Winter fashion inspiration and icy-cold air conditioning.
These printed pants were probably the fourth or fifth pair of cotton printed pants that I bought from Katies over Summer (and I ended up with about seven pairs – I got addicted). I snapped them up from a sale rack for under $20, and have worn them so much that I think they work out to have cost less than $1 per wear so far. That’s how I like to think. Cost per wear is so much more important than saving money on something you’ll actually never wear.
The print on these was a little too patchworky for me when I first saw them, but the next time I popped instore, I was wearing a coral tank (of course) and tried them on together. Wearing a strong colour on top certainly takes some of the boho style away from these, but wearing them with cream and white has grown on me.
And these wedges. Wow, what a bargain. These little tan and red babies were a mid-year sale purchase last Winter, and I snapped up a brown and black pair at the same time, two pairs for a little less than $45, and again, I’ve had a stack of wear out of them! Normally I prefer an all-leather shoe, but these are really well-made, and have a sturdy heel and don’t give me blisters anywhere.
Well, it’s Wednesday, which means hump-day-wine, and also (and slightly more exciting and less anti-social) it means it’s Wardrobe Wednesday over at Kimba Likes.
