Grey and I are not a match made in heaven... or anywhere else for that matter. However I like how it looks with white and some other colors like yellow or pink.This was the reason why I got these Gap grey skinny jeans several months ago. So when Angie posted this ensemble this outfit was already swimming in my head...but alas! a week ago I was just 2 days recovering from a surgery and could not tolerate anything except PJ around my midsection... :-)
This week I went to work and used this opportunity to sport this outfit at last - pic #1. Unfortunately these jeans stretch like crazy
after several hours of wear
and fit like BF jeans rather than skinnies (and not even slim BFs )- not fab! I think I will be purging them quite soon - too bad because I love this grey color :-(
The shirt is new - a lucky find on the clearance rack in Winners. It is by Adrianne Papell and cost me around $20. The quality is very nice, I like the hi-lo hem and look at the length on the back! I rest my case :-) One cannot have too many white shirts, right?
Pic #2 was what I wore to work the next day. Everything in this outfit is old. I am trying to wear my culottes while it is not too hot for them yet.
I have some inspirational pictures on my Pinterest board for culottes with flats - here, here and here so I tried to experiment a bit. The shoes are lower vamp and not complete flats - about 1.5" wedge.
I tucked the top in but these culottes are not high-waisted.
Last time I tried to wear these culottes with flats it was a disaster - how is it this time?
Thank you for looking and as usual all comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.
Have a great weekend!
