Completely simple and low key as this outfit may be, I always feel particularly fabulous when I wear it. This may be to do with the freedom of movement that wearing swishy pants like these allows, or it could be the cheeky, cropped midriff top. The fact that both pieces are extremely comfortable to wear is of course, an added bonus.
Fellow bloggers are often to blame for my shopping addiction, or rather should I call it inspiration, and this particular outfit was inspired by Ellen who made me realize that an elegant off-shoulder black top is an essential wardrobe staple. I stopped buying fashion magazines around the same time I started reading blogs and I feel that this is no coincidence. I love blogs and my favorite ones are those that show realistic every day looks, that show what clothing looks like on various body types.
As you can see, I've really been enjoying wearing trousers lately, but that is not to say that I have gotten over my love of dresses! I love the way that high waisted 1940s style trousers have a powerful, masculine cut but at the same time compliment the female figure; thus creating a strong look that is also feminine.
