There are two things I learned in my outfit I rocked this day:
- I love a good tailored denim short
- A backup pair of flats is most desirable
Most times when I head out, it’s usually for some sort of event, and I have told myself, that I need to get out more- the non work related to let my hair down and enjoy life! (Thank you sister for the fabulous reminder) So, when I was invited to grab some drinks and peruse around downtown Pasadena, I was a little amped!
I met up with my girls in Old Pasadena this day, to hang with a friend who was in from out of town- but it was HOT. Or at least in my neck of the woods! So, I wanted to give my outfit (sent to me from Forever 21) a go in this heat wave. A lightweight blazer, denim trouser shorts, and a strapless tube top was the plan.
I had to share this outfit, especially as we talked about shorts and the plus size woman, and I had to share with you my excitement.
Denim trouser shorts.
I love them.
I am all about “How many times I can wear X item with X amount of pieces in my closet” when choosing which items to buy. I love fashion and style but my balance comes from longevity. I LOATHE falling in love with something that I can ONLY wear once, or feel that I can only wear once. (As much as I loathe this, I have MANY a outfits sitting in my closet now because of this)
These denim trouser shorts (which I ordered in a size bigger for the thighs) are going to be a staple for me as long as they will survive. Blazer, tank top, t-shirt, dressier blouse- this for me is a new fave in this Southern California heat.
Four Inch Wedges + Drinks= Superwoman wardrobe change into flats.
I’ll be damned if I stumble on my face post cocktails in wedges. A broken or sprained ankle is NOT the business for me. Especially after teetering in these really cute Matiko wedges of mine.
So I ask you fellow Curvy Fashionistas:
Do you have a Summer Staple that you will wear into oblivion? An new piece of clothing that happily surprised you? Do you fashion a back up pair of flats when you are out and about?
