A pair of trousers and a t-shirt
That’s what I wear most of the time, whatever the season (in winter I just swap the t-shirt for a cashmere top). A bit boring, maybe, but it suits my lifestyle. I’m a casual girl, both on and off duty.
Yes, I could wear this to work (the dress code is very relaxed, at best, or non-existent in Finland). Besides, a teacher in a very formal outfit would scare the students away…
However, I didn’t wear this to work. I’m on ‘holiday’ (= that period in summer when freelance teachers don’t get paid). So, let’s call this ‘holiday attire’ now.
And as you can see, I’m wearing the same trousers I was wearing in my previous post. I’ve had these silk-linen trousers for a couple of years. They’re really comfortable and fit me well. But I never know how to style them.
It’s the colour. No, don’t tell me ‘but black goes with anything‘. It doesn’t. Black really only looks good with white or gold or leopard print. It makes any other colour look dull and muted.
However, I didn’t want to wear something black and white here. Mainly the because black and white combo makes me look dull and muted. And pale. And a bit sickly. You get the idea: my face needs colour. Or I need colour. Today, anyway.
So, this is an experiment of sorts. And I’m not completely happy with the results. Basically, I wish I had these trousers in brown, they would look so much nicer with this t-shirt. And I have so many other t-shirts I could wear with brown trousers, too. I need brown trousers!!!
In the meantime, I have these totally fab black trousers that fit me so well, are so comfortable, and that I hardly ever wear. What should I do with them?

How do you wear black?
