When I picked up this sweater, I honestly figured it was fairly ordinary, but I liked the color and the overall style. But when I tried it on, I realized it was pretty dramatic (those sleeves!). And things just kind of snowballed from there.
I am really trying to get behind the current move away from skinny pants ... but it's hard. I feel awkward in wide-leg styles, so I'm kind of playing around with them to try to get my groove back. (Savvy readers will recognize these trousers from this thrift outing and no, I didn't keep them — they went to the thrift store right after I took these photos!)
Mostly the thing that bums me out about wide-leg pants is the need to wear heels — and not just any heels, but just the right kind. These oxford heels are one of the few pairs of shoes I have that are a good fit for wider trousers.
What about you — wide legs or skinny pants? I think that, despite this experiment, I'm still firmly on Team Skinny for now.
All thrifted (cardigan available in my shop)
Total cost to me: About $15
