No Pants: day 16-18.

April 18, 2011 in Fashion, Style, What I Wore by alliemcc

The No Pants Saga continues.

In response to reader demand, I agreed to compromise, and will do my level best to post compilation-outfit posts every 3 days or so. You guys owe me… ; )

Wear something your gentleman-friend can't.

Contact me to get reacquainted with your leg-less garments, and learn some styling strategies.


Day 16

Activities: working from home, chilling, eating Korean food

Weather: low 50s, rain

: gray jersey shrug – handmade

: black turtleneck – possibly H&M, years ago

: black tunic/dress with pleated ribbon detail – Target/Merona, thrifted

: bi-color leggings – Babooshka

: black suede & leather boots – Simple


Day 17

Activities: frolicking, picking forsythia, chilling with the fam'.

Weather: around 60?, sunny. Totally acceptable.

: black and white gingham cowgirl shirt – via Annie Sez, 2 years ago

: black cotton dress – Gap, thrifted

: black suede & leather boots – Simple (see above)

You might call this look, Goth Weekend in the Country?


Day 18

Activities: working from home, laundry

Weather: somewhere in the 50s, mostly sunny

: pink argyle (wow, someone needs caffeine) houndstooth cardigan – Liz Claiborne, thrifted. Also seen here.

: bright green with white dots polo-shirtdress – Talbots, thrifted

: vintage metallic gold belt – thrifted

: coral open toe flats – H&M*, right now.

I call this my Preppy Raver look. It reminds me a lot of Parker Posey's character in Party Girl (love that movie! <3 '90s).

* worn as house shoes. I've been dying for some girly, warm-weather slippers to wear around the house. Something in between a high heeled sandal with marabou feathers, and the woolly clogs I wear to stave off hypothermia in the winter… These are sold as "real" shoes, but they'll do just fine as summer slippers – and they're washable!
