Hello, my friends! Before we know it, it is the weekend again! Couldn’t be happier about the raising temperature, which means there will be lots of blossom and less layers of clothing! It also prompted me to wear my new favorite wide-leg pants more before it gets too warm to wear such thick fabric.
Have to admit, I have a thing for wide-leg pants. Perhaps it was because my mom used to wear those long, flowing ones that looked almost like skirts, I perceive them as being feminine and elegant. When the world was taken over by the skinnies and the super skinnies, I still wear my wide-leg pants occasionally. This summer, they are having a full come back, in cropped style, with a new name “culotte“. This is really great news for us moms, for we always enjoy styles that are both chic and agile.
The biggest challenge of my pants is, the length. For the vertically challenged, i.e. moi, it is the awkward length that appeared to be too long for culotte but not-long enough as regular pants. As much as I admire the way it is presented on the runway, or how Michelle Harper wore it, I need to find ways to make my legs look long enough. 🙂 So, my solution is to move the focal point up by wearing a cropped top. The horizontal line of the breton top also visually broadened my upper body so it is more balanced against the width of the pants.
My last touch was a head scarf. Why? I don’t know. It must be I’ve been watching “My Love From the Star“, the female lead always wear a head scarf. 😀
Thank you so much for reading! See you in my next post!
