Brown plaid wide-legged trousers (Vero Moda, The Bay), violet cashmere sleeveless mock turtleneck sweater (consignment), denim jacket (Ann Taylor Loft, NYC), gold leather T-strap shoes (Aerosoles, NYC), wood elastic cuff & wood "frame" earrings (Oscar & Libby's).
As I had to go to my surgeon today for my post-op examination, I wanted to wear pants (easy to slip down). These are one of my favourite pairs: they're washable, they fit really well, they're super comfortable and they were not expensive (around $35, regular price, although I'm pretty sure they were on an extra 30% off).
The Vero Moda line is European sizing, which I am just starting to figure out. Usually, I wear a 36 or 38 (a size 4 or 6 in Canada - Euro sizing is a bit smaller), but the pants are a 28. Go figure. I think that might correspond to my waist size - that would be stunning, a size number that actually has meaning, instead of the arbitrary North American numbers. What is a 6 anyway? 6 what? Inches? Feet? Pounds? It's just a stupid number.
I love these shoes. I got them in NYC with Mom last spring (I can't believe it's almost a year since we were there!). They are super comfy and have a great 1920s retro vibe to them. I usually wear them with pants, as they make my legs look a little on the short side due to the T-strap. A close up:
