As most of you probably know, we have been having quite ridiculous weather on the east coast. Today it has been in the 60s, and raining like crazy all day long. My old (British) English teacher would have used the expression "It is raining cats and dogs", which she always seemed quite proud of and had a cute snicker whenever she would say that as if she knows something nobody else does.
I have decided to break out the ruffled neck H&M blouse that a couple of other fabbers have, snapped for a song at Thanksgiving sales; and paired it with a pair of faded black cropped kick-flare H&M jeans scored at the same time. While Angie treats the blouse as rust, I have decided to treat the pattern as burgundy for all my purposes as burgundy is much more flattering color for me. So I added a burgundy/black Madewell belt, pewter Elie Tahari booties, old Gibson burgundy knit blazer and burgundy Steve Madden satchel. Out in the rain extra additions were black BR trench and a plaid Gap umbrella.
The black H&M jeans are a little longer than my blue cropped kick flare Express jeans and the flare is a bit more pronounced. I have been wearing them at their original length so far, but was wondering if they would benefit from shortening them an inch or so. However, I would loose some of the flare if I do so. What do you say - keep them as is or shorten a little?
Wishing everyone wonderful holidays!
