When I was looking for ideas for other ways to wear my brown pinstripe pants, I pinned a couple of photos of men wearing pinstripes. What better inspiration for a "boyish look" can you get? Well, I didn't want to go this route...
...of, you know, baby boyish-ness, so I decided a manly look was a reasonable approach for a work outfit.
Oh yeah, a light blue shirt with brown pinstripe pants...why didn't I think of that?
Brown pinstripe pants (thrifted, Chaps)
Light blue button up shirt (thrifted, Kohls)
*Brown/black microcheck blazer (thrifted, Ann Taylor)
Black suede oxfords (thrifted, Munro American)
*Gold/tortoiseshell necklace (Macy's)
I didn't have the appropriately mannish brown shoes, so I went with my black suede Oxfords, hoping the brown/black jacket would be enough to tie it all together.
And if not, fuck it. I finally got this new necklace into the mix! And with that I declare victory.
Verdict: Men are the experts in how to wear pinstripes. I bow to their sartorial acumen.
In other news, I was finally back at work today, and it wasn't as dire as I thought it would be (a cup of caffeinated tea when I arrived might have helped with that). That said, I was really happy when it was time to come home.
