Do you ever notice on petite blogs that trousers are rarely ever shown? I've always wondered about that. But I think that it just may be that when you are very small, flattering trousers can be just so difficult to find, especially when on a budget. I love trousers though. The perfectly tailored trouser is so chic and looks perfectly put together with a simple blouse and a great pair of heels. I would so much rather wear a pair of trousers instead of a skirt, especially in the winter. In fact, I had resolved to wearing only pants to work for the rest of my life...until I moved to D.C. and realized it was just way too humid to do so and that I should just take advantage of the fact that I'm a girl and expose as much of my skin as possible while still being conservative. I do love a simple blouse and a classic tailored trouser, though:
Top: Ann Taylor Dotted Blouse (Navy/White, size 0P).
Bottoms: Talula Babiton by Aritzia Trousers (Black, size 0).
Shoes: Lauren by Ralph Lauren Amaya Pump (Black, size 6).
This shopping the closet idea is pretty difficult. I still find myself reaching for my newest pieces. I think on day I'm going to do an inventory of my closet and put my thinking cap on and see what I can come up with. This is going to be somewhat of a "fashion on a budget" blog for the next little while. Or at least I'm going to try. On top of my minimalist style, I hope it doesn't start to bore you. I know readers love to see new pieces when reading blogs. I know I do! But unfortunately, until I find that elusive first job (which is hopefully soon), shopping needs to be kept at an absolute minimum. Do you have any tips on how to incorporate older pieces that you love (but no longer wear) into your current outfit rotation?
