Slouchy pants | Adorned With Love

Blazer: H&M, Top: Enza Costa, Pants: Bella Luxx c/o, Shoes: Express, Clutch: Similar here and here

My friends and I recently dug up some old photo albums and couldn’t help but laugh over the outfit choices we made back in high school. Not only were we wearing things that were just flat out unflattering, but our desperate attempts to follow whatever was trending at the time had us looking awkward and uncomfortable. I may look back years from now and cringe over some of the things I’m currently wearing, but I like to think I’m past the point of any major fashion faux pas. Part of that is due to picking pieces that not only look comfortable but feel comfortable, which in turn result in a more relaxed outcome. These slouchy pants are a favorite for this very reason. Their loose fit makes them extra forgiving, and they’re as soft as a favorite pair of pajamas, so I love that you can get away with wearing them in public. I added a pair of heels with these for a dressier dinner, but I’ll definitely be wearing them with cozy sweaters for a more casual look as soon as things start to cool down.

    Oh, I totally agree with you on this! I recently purged my closet of so many things that I had been holding onto, some as far back as the high school days. I realized that while a lot of the stuff was cute or trendy, it wasn’t my style at all. I tend to gravitate toward much more comfortable and classic pieces now.

      My feelings exactly. I now try to follow a general rule of – if I haven’t worn a particular item within the last year, it’s probably time to toss it or give it away. And even though it’s tough to let go of certain pieces, I’ve never found myself missing them once they’re gone.
