Floral Pants and Robin’s Egg Blue

I’m wearing the wide floral pants I bought in Savannah last year. I’ve already styled them on this blog (with denim and orange) and this time I tried something different.

Sweater: Goodwill
Necklace: The Vegan Woman
Pants: Terra Cotta
Sandals: Bamboo

I like how there are so many colors in these pants. I can pick any of them and wear a top in that shade. A deep green would look good. I can even veer into pinks and yellows. Today, though, I tried it with a robin’s egg blue shade.

I found this sweater at Goodwill. It’s cropped, but cropped is back again. I wore a tank top underneath though. I don’t think flashes of midriff are work appropriate. A pair of high-waisted shorts with a crop top would work for weekend wear though. Just no belly buttons unless you’re at the beach! The 90s midriff look seems to be gone and a more subtle version is in.

Of course, as with all trends, choose the ones you like and skip the rest. Heck, wide pants weren’t technically “in” for a few years–but I wore them anyway!

Do you follow trends or wear what you like? Any trends that you love or hate right now?

Thrifty Thursday: Girls’ Night Out

I decided to try a more polished, less quirky look for dinner and drinks with a few of my friends. I also wanted to try another red and brown outfit, like I tried last week. So I put together this ensemble. I have to admit, I felt very sophisticated in it.

I wore red shoes and paired them with-wide leg brown pants that I found in Ragamoffyn’s, a high-end consignment shop in Kirkland. Then I thought I’d wear something else I don’t usually wear with brown: black. I added a funky silver and red pendant necklace from Macy’s.

And, as National Poetry month wraps up, I give you:

Jabberwocky
by Lewis Carroll

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
