Bumming around


Tank - vintage, thrifted
Belt - gifted
Trousers - Express, thrifted
Flats - Sam and Libby, thrifted
Today's a rest day. Finally. D and I are bumming around the house. I'm planning on cooking dinner and watching marathons of How Do I Look. I picked out comfy pieces to sit around the house, but still okay in case we do have to go somewhere. Red linen pants, a thrifted black tank, and basic flats. I added the pop of yellow belt, with thanks to Heather. The sweet belt buckle was nice to play down the harness-look of the tank. I snatched this up super fast at Super Saturday. I knew it would mostly be a house-clothes piece, but it's so cute (and I'm pretty sure 80s to early 90s due to the tag).

I finally cut off about an inch from these trousers. They were really long. And yes, filled with wrinkles. When I wear linen I just accept the wrinkles and go ahead and let them be as wrinkled as they want. I just pretend it's my 'texture' for the day. (Color, Pattern, Texture, Shine, Remember that!)

  1. I know, linen drives me crazy, but it's oh so comfy! I like this look for a casual day and the belt is the perfect addition to tie it all together!

  5. I tend to just let linen be wrinkled too. It is too hard to keep neat!

  7. I love the pants, wrinkles and all. My linen clothes are always wrinkled; I've learned to accept it.

  8. I love those red linen pants!! I have a few linen dresses and I swear, every time I wear them, if I sit down for even 3 minutes, I have a jillion wrinkles for the rest of the day. But the comfort and summery feel of linen makes wearing it worth the wrinkles!

  13. This looks like such a comfortable outfit for a relaxing day. I still adore the color of those pants - so fun. And that belt is a great little touch. Even if it was a "day of rest," you still look wonderfully put together.

  14. I am loving linen these days, wrinkles or no. I wore linen bloomers at Faire this weekend, when it was a bazillion degrees out, and they were WONDERFUL. So cool, comfy, and moisture-wicking!
