Me: "what do you think, is this a little weird?"
Jill (daughter, 21) : big pause, looking me over.
"I'm sorry, I can't help you"
Me: " What - the pants? "
Jill: "Those things look like what hippies with dreads who haven't showered in 8 months wear."
Me: slinks back into my bedroom to swap out the also-hippie coat for something shorter and more structured. Goes back in .
Jill: " I just don't know, mom, wear whatever you want."

So - I wore this outfit out today with a ponte moto jacket instead, which was great, but too hot. She and I went out to do a bit of shopping and , and I was aware of being looked at a few times - which freaked me out a bit. Harem pants are just not a thing here. . It's way out of my usual look zone but I really didn't mind it. What do you all think? I've been itching to wear these harems again, and today's post was the impetus for this look. I've overexposed some of the pics to show the pattern on the coat, and to give the black more contrast against my background. I wore the floatier coat thing for the photos - I really like this combo, but fear I may be missing the mark here. I'm all ears for your thoughts.....

coat - Bryn Walker (black and grey mix)
harems - Eileen Fisher - flat black jersey
tank - black silk with a sheer bottom panel
shoes - black suede Lord & Taylor.
necklace - resin, mix of dark neutrals; no earrings and just a plain black mens watch (Daniel Wellington)
