This post may be coming out of left field as someone representing herself as a style blogger. But, I am still a real person, with a real regular job aside from blogging, with a real budget. I have also become a minimalist in my age, which may also be ironic for a style blogger. Nevertheless, I want to represent myself as authentic as possible, and hope to connect my style and theories behind my wardrobe with like-minded girls, because at the end of the day, we do like to wear our favorite sweater or favorite pair of jeans over and over. Am I right?
With that being said, I understand that trends come and go, and quickly, and I have to be honest, I don’t love every trend that comes out. I have to ask myself if I can see myself wearing it the following year, 2-3 years, etc. I also have to be mindful of what I would be paying for said item, and if I would get enough wear out of it to justify the cost. And frankly, I like every day looks more than representing a style and wardrobe that is truly not who I am, very trendy, just to make a sale or keep my Instagram feed “interesting.”
I could go on and on about this subject, really, but I hope that wasn’t too much real talk for you! Let’s talk about this outfit now! Do you recognize these pants? Did you read this blog post? I hope so, because this is sort of an “in addition to” blog post, showing you yet another way to style an item in your closet: these trousers.
They are just as neutral and basic and comfy as your favorite pair of jeans, and literally can take you everywhere from the weekend to date night to work! They fit TTS, I’m in a small, and they are just $55. Getting lots of wear out of them like I mentioned above makes this price doable, in my opinion.
Have you tried trousers yet? I’d love to hear your favorite way to style them! Thank you for stopping by and reading! xoxo
