When I was in my early 20s, my Mom offered to hand me down these 'classic' (her words) high-waisted, buttercup-coloured cropped linen pants with matching vest. At the time, I'd hear 'classic' and think 'fuddy'. Knowing I would never be caught dead in a pair of pants that basically came up to my armpits I turned her down (but nicely, gotta respect your parents people). But what goes around comes around, and mama - the one who gets rid of everything - had the foresight to know I'd come to love them. And that is the story of how the pants-that-almost weren't wound up headlining this post.
I decided to give the colourblocking trend a whirl, adding a fuschia tee, teal sweater and light green bracelet, plus some colourful flower pins. I kept my makeup simple with just a quick swipe of colour on my lips.
Tell me - Yay or nay? Have YOU tried colourblocking an outfit?
