You knew this was going to happen, right? How could I post a dressed-up version of the kimono without posting a dressed-down version? So, here we are…
I’m back to my old tricks: lazy styling: no jewellery, a graphic t-shirt…
But I wanted to put together a minimalist, dressed-down outfit using the same key elements as in the dressed-up kimono look: the same pair of black trousers and the same bag.
By the way, I love these trousers! They’re high-waisted! And cut for a woman with a big bum and thighs! Made of thick but soft viscose, so they don’t need ironing! Perfect!
OK, I had to shorten them, so not perfect, but you get my drift. Besides, I always need to shorten my trousers; I’m short (162 cm, in case you want to know).
Did I mention the trousers are high-waisted?!? In my book, that’s the holy grail of trousers. Something that actually fits my body. And doesn’t need to be yanked up all the time.
I bought the trousers at the Marimekko outlet sale months ago (September? October? Oh, who cares…), but I only started wearing them during my trip to Madeira. Because, you know, they had to be shortened. And yes, I shortened them myself. I’m perfectly capable of doing that; I just have no time, and even less patience, for stuff like that.
