Well, isn’t that an imaginative post title? But sometimes, you just gotta tell it like it is… Anyway, I’m not sure the star of this show is these cigarette pants, but the scenery. It doesn’t get much more perfectly autumnal than this – blogger done good.
Oh ok, back to the clothes. Well, these cigarette pants I spent months looking for… and then Collectif brought them back anyway (last year) and I snapped them up. So I apologise because if you want them you’re probably going to be back where I was trying to find them forever. The reason I couldn’t feature them right away, though, was because they were such an odd fit on me. My usual size 8 just didn’t fit well at all – it was baggy in the hips and waist, oh and of course approximately two feet too long but that’s standard. So a tailor basically cut enough material out of them to make another pair, but it took me an awful long time to get round to sorting it.
I do really love how high-waisted these are – I think they’re the most high-waisted thing I own, in fact. So much so that I can tuck crop tops like this one into them and they don’t even end up falling out. It’s just a shame that they’re not as fitted as I wanted them to be – you’ll see in these shots they’re still a bit loose in places. It kinda looks like that’s the intention, so I think I just about get away with it…
Anyway, this is an outfit I might very well wear to work (perhaps minus the accessories as I’m too lazy for all that on weekdays), and I feel like it’s good to share one of those every once in a while. I also like sharing more casual outfits here and there, and that’s just what I’ve got coming in my next outfit post…
