It was a hot, sunny day today! I love when summer lingers into September.
However, I wasn't really dressed for super-hot weather. Nope.here with sky-high heels!). It's by Twelve Layers (an offshoot of Forever 21). I love the industrial zipper, the taupe ruffles and the orange leopard print (yay!).
I've previously worn it here in July 2011 (with a casual skirt and leopard shoes) and before that in June 2011 (3rd outfit here, with more orange).
here in January 2011). They are made in Canada! They have a very high waist too, which I love - it gives them a nice vintage vibe.
I last wore them October 2012 for a "menswear or oversized pants" challenge put on by Megan Mae at MMD. Of course I did both in one item, ha! That's how I roll.
But I've only worn them twice. That's it! Only two wears out of these great classic trousers. For shame, Sheila.
I console myself by looking at my shoes.
|Oh, the shoes|
If they look familiar to some newer readers (hello!), that's because they were in one of my Wild Card outfits: this one in May. I've also worn them here (2nd outfit), in August 2011, with a jumpsuit (!) for a friend's party. I ended up walking most of the way home (about 3 km) in them after the party. Ouch.
I also wore them earlier in August 2011 with my skull cardigan, and again in June 2011 with black and my silk paisley blouse.
The shoes are a really high platform (just over an inch), so I'm pretty tall in these! Good thing, as the pants are really long. So long that they presented a challenge for walking to work. I don't relish destroying the hems of my pants by having them drag on the ground, so I came up with a temporary solution.
I included these shoes deliberately this month so that if the weather turned cold, I'll still be able to wear them with tights.
Cardigan (Twelve Layers, thrifted), trousers (Tobias), belt/bracelet (Plum), shoes (Locale), earrings (The Cobbler), ring (Oscar & Libby's, gift from Cindy).
Anyway, I've been slacking quite a bit with my physical activity in the last while, and have been feeling slack and soft. Yeah, I walk to and from work (and take the stairs to the top floor), and yeah, I play Ultimate, and yeah, I do my push-ups, but I can't seem to shake the few pounds I want to lose.
So I signed up for a boot camp! It's outdoors, and you just pick the location and day you want and go. I'm excited! I'll be starting next week. I expect to get my ass kicked.
