oh well…

Although it may be chic to wear pyjama style tops I have to admit that it is one of those style trends that I am hesitant about. I mean who isn’t right? It is one of those hit-or-miss kind of things. It can be very chic or it could look like you just rolled out of bed and said “oh well, this is what I’m wearing today…don’t feel like changing.” It is also one of those trends that if you want to try (and why not) you have to proceed with caution. Let’s be honest, you can’t just put on any pyjama-look top and walk out the door. As always, I have a budget to think about and it is challenging to find the right one for me. Here is the simplest of tops that can be worn over jeans or perhaps as below (my preference). Or this one worn the exact same way.

black pants…

I personally think a classic pair of black pants are (should be) a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Especially a great fitting pair like the ones pictured above recommended by Marliene Rentmeester by Taylor StitchThey are just the kind of tailored versatility I look for and at $138 USD they fall within my price range. Here are a couple more suggestions: Free People and Anthropologie

When a trend comes along that I love and feel good wearing I get very excited. I love the off shoulder tops and dresses (I may have posted this before). I especially love that this is a look that almost every woman can wear. There are so many variations of the look that there really is no excuse for you not to find the perfect one for you. I love the one above from chicwish.com or this one from asos.com or this from topshop.com or this floral beauty from farfetch.com

I just love yellow. Something about it is just so cheerful and comforting. Admittedly, it isn’t a colour that I can easily wear but I do love the punch it gives in unexpected places. Like yellow boots. What a great idea…time to scout out yellow boots.
