Elizabeth Suzann Florence Pants in silk crepe (gift from ES to review) | size large, short – OLD SIZING
Organic by John Patrick Potato Sweater (several years old) | medium
Women by Common Projects Achilles low sneakers
Admonish custom leather tote (several years old)
As you can see, my silk florence pants arrived from Elizabeth Suzann (they sent me this pair to review). Woohoo!! This time I asked for a large, short, since the medium short I had before were too small for me (at the hips/waist). These are from the previous collection, so I have no idea how the sizing compares to the new, but I’m much happier with the large. I do wish they were a little shorter, which it seems was adjusted for with the new sizing.
Of course, I’d be happy living in these, which as far as I can tell, those of you who have silk florence pants do. The challenge for me, as a slightly wide, short person, is that these pants are in no way conventionally flattering on me at all. And as you can see here IDGAF. And paired them with a slightly oversized sweater FTW 😉
If I cared, I could wear a fitted top (the Rhodes sweater is perfect with them) and make them a little shorter, so I’m showing a little ankle, helping the proportions a bit. To be honest, I did stress a little about that yesterday as I put this outfit on and was photographing it. I thought, whoa, I’m a shapeless blob, I should do something about that. Then, I spent an awful lot of time trying to come up with another look, but ended up with this one again, because I LIKE it, and was comfortable in it. I literally felt like I was in pajamas all day, and couldn’t have been happier.
How do you wear your silk florence pants?
Yes, I have another new pair of sneakers. I’ve been in a silent sneaker hunt for weeks now, and have ended up buying/returning/selling quite a few pairs. I’ll write more about that next week, but these Common Projects sneakers are a definite win. I had some birthday money and was desperate, so I ordered them, not having very high hopes to like them at all (the sizing is supposed to be challenging with this brand), but I do like them. And they’re ALL GRAY. C’mon.
I also received the oversized wool blazer from Everlane this week and it’s okay. I’m sending it back, but I’m glad I ordered it to try, so that now I can get the idea that I’d wear an oversized wool blazer out of my head LOL. The blazer is nicely done, if a little thin. And the size 6 fit me okay, but – and yes, I know it’s supposed to be oversized – it’s too wide in the shoulders for me, not “straight” enough, and just not a good look in general.
Not too much interesting right now, to be honest. I am really enjoying reading through your answers to my Five Questions about Waste post yesterday though, please keep them coming!!
So busy with slowre…and I’m popping up this weekend at a local market, which is always fun, because I really love interacting with humans in person, but also very tiring.
On Monday we’re heading to Denver for a few days and I’m super-excited! The weather looks like it will be BEAUTIFUL, and hopefully I’ll get to meet-up with a couple of readers during my visit. I’m also going to use the “down” time there to try and write more thought-pieces on some topics I’m interested in lately. Can’t wait.
Have a great weekend!!
