It’s always an exciting day when red pants are worn. Always. But that day can be made even better when the red-pant-outfit becomes immortalized in photos. This day was also the day of our work photo shoot. So check, check…
Not only do I get to wear red pants, but everyone who receives a copy of next year’s season brochure will get to see them as well. Yes, I feel the narcissism of that statement. Just now though.
Today’s Photographer: Cassy… I’m 80% sure it was Cassy.
Red Pants: The Sequel
The last time I posted these pants (which was also the first time that I had worn them), I received more re-blogs and likes than ever before. Which I suppose makes sense, given the awesomeness of the pants. So who knows what’ll happen this time as I think this is an even better use of them…
Either way, I put together this bright outfit to defend myself against the dull, dreary, rainy day. I was thankful for the rain because it took the humidity out of the air, but ultimately, it didn’t make for a very fun day overall.
Today’s Photographer: The wonderful Emily, who used to do these photos regularly, but then moved far far away. She was back for a visit, and didn’t disappoint with yet another FANTASTIC photoset.
Last Sunday I was invited to a “high tea”. With cucumber sandwiches, scones and delightful teacups in mind, I opted for a contemporary twist on English poshery. In other words, I gave a nod to a style which I cannot afford to have by wearing a bowtie and brightly-coloured jacket. Either way, I was happy with my sartorial decision, and it was a great excuse to get just a little bit dressed up. Nothing crazy, but I rarely bust out dress pants in my day job, so here we go I guess. I will say that this outfit represents almost all of my most-visited mall stores for cheap buys. It’s rare for me to wear an outfit without one vintage piece, especially when the style is so vintage, but I’m okay with it.

Red Red Jacket
Apparently I only know how to exist in opposites. One day I’m obsessed with green, and today it’s red. It feels so rudimentary. Tomorrow I will attempt to return to a time when I wore more than one colour at a time. Sheesh.
This outfit came together surprisingly this morning. I love this jacket and am constantly in search of new ways to wear it (beyond a black or white shirt option). As soon as you have something as intense as a red jacket, you have to be careful to offset it with more neutral clothing partners. Or maybe I’m just limiting myself. Today I pulled out the red plaid, and though it’s a bit matchy-matchy, I think the end result was pretty successful… if I do say so myself.
Today’s Photographer: Karen, my work colleague and eager-to-be-a-photographer friend. Or maybe I just ask her all the time. Thanks for not saying no, Karen!
