OOTD: Old world glamour

I got this shirt at the Big Thrifty last year, and it’s become one of my workweek wardrobe staples. I love the bright, colorful poppies. The pants are also a work staple. I don’t love how they look, but finding soft, stretchy, short-length pants that fit me properly is hard enough, so whenever I find a pair, I don’t care much about the aesthetics.

I’ve got my eye on these scuba-jersey flare pants from Eurostyle Plus, but I’m wary of buying pants from sites that don’t have free returns, because the likelihood that they’ll fit me is so low. Most of the time, I don’t mind buying clothing online–but when it comes to pants, I really wish I had lots of options to try on in-store.

I love the vintage look of this shrug. It’s a bit tight, though, so I rarely button it.

    • Poppies are the best! I only wear elastic-waist pants, and even then, it’s hard to find ones that fit me (especially since I have short legs, a big stomach, and small hips). Leggings are definitely easier.
