Suitably Fun


I wore this outfit on a day that I was going directly from work to meet a friend for drinks. Thus it needed to be comfortable enough to wear all day, and warm enough for the chilly evening without requiring me to haul around an additional jacket; it also needed to be suitably fun for an evening out. I thought the pirate flair of this outfit accomplished the fun element, while the stretchy layers and flat boots gave me the warmth and comfort I needed.

These ponte knit pants are incredibly comfortable, and have in fact become a staple for evenings out. They have the sleek, fitted look of leggings, but are thick and opaque enough to wear as pants. Plus, the stretchy waistband is comfortable after several hours of sitting down -- and even after several beers.

Jacket: Forever 21 (original buttons replaced with vintage ones)
Tunic: Asos
Scarf: Alexander McQueen
Pants: Club Monaco
Bracelet: Leslie Danzis

I love love love love love this, Audi! So fun and perfect layering for cool weather and my feet want those boots, and the scarf is fabulous... and I love that you glamified the F21 jacket with vintage buttons.

Also, you had me at chiffon.

Great outfit! I love how you paired the sheer floaty fabrics with warmer pieces. The McQueen scarf is just so perfect with all sorts of outfits. Also I just realize that you left out your boots, but I know they're Miz Mooz amazing button boots. Perfect for the everyday pirate look.

This outfit makes me wish I could meet you in person. You must be a truly fun person if you choose to wear such fun clothes. Good for you!

Gorgeous, as always! I love the drape of the scarf on top of the drape of the tunic. Double-drape for the win!

This comment is late coming, but you OWN this outfit. Everything works: the color of the boot, the brass buttons, the red scarf, the gauze-y top, the metal works bracelet. Kudos! And keep it up! Intellect and fashion CAN bed together! ;-D
