Humph. This fashion journey I’ve decided to go on is a bit of a bumpy ride. I mean, I guess I knew it would be when I decided that I needed to overhaul both my style and my wardrobe, but still.
Today, as I was walking into work in what had previously been one of my favourite summery outfits (pictured here), all I could think of is: I hate this outfit. What happened? I used to love this outfit (look at the pose I’ve struck – I’m thinking I look soooo cool – you can just tell). The fit of the linen trousers, so cool and summery.
And as I was walking, I saw a girl dressed sort of like this:
And all I could think was – why am I not wearing something cute like that? As an side, that outfit is from a blog post from 2 years ago. Um, how did I get so out of touch where I wish I was wearing a style from 2 years ago? I mean, lets be honest, I still don’t own anything chambray. By the time I do, that trend will probably be over.
In all seriousness though, what happened? My bright chic summery linen trousers felt like clown trousers. 😦
I’m trying to decide if I attempt to over-dye them a more neutral colour, or if it’s not even worth it? I think possibly not – they don’t seem to fit me as well as I remember. So why keep something in your wardrobe that doesn’t fit, right? I try very hard not to.
I mean, these have been in my wardrobe for nearly 5 years. Pretty amazing for yellow pants, I would say. How long do you typically keep something you love in your wardrobe? What sort of lifespan seems reasonable for an item of clothing?
