How now, brown cow?
I have no idea why that came to mind.
But when I learned Dani had these pants on her sale-watch list,
I no longer had to think about it, my OOTD was thus determined.
So now you know why the name of the post.
Oh sure. If I was another six or ten inches taller.
And had somebody pin everything to shape and slender.
But alas, no. Such is how it is in real life.
Let's start at the top: that's the perfect shirt in chambray polka dot.
lounge pants trousers are the café capri in silky dot.
The substitute Valentina mirror metallic pumps are Daniele Ancarani
I got from shoescribe before they took down the sale section.
I think they're pretty. With leather uppers, leather lining, leather sole
and a dainty 2.25 inch heel, they are very, very comfortable.
And they were substantially less money than the metallic Valentina.
Back to the trousers ... Gigi said I had to get them.
And she was right, they are like wearing fancy jammies.
I'm surprised it's a 66% silk, 34% wool blend; they just feel like silk charmeuse on your legs. They're unlined so I don't know how they'd be in heat and
high humidity (thank goodness that is rarely a problem in my neck of the woods).
They wouldn't be good with static cling either.
No matter. That's not usually a problem either where I am.
Being comfy is a big plus.
The lounging pajamas brought me to think of ...
The ballet flats of yore.
Not only were they darned cute.
They were carefully constructed for cushy comfort.
Even the quality and softness of the leather lining made me sigh.
