Today’s another “mid week casual day”. Some people frigging eat this shit up, but, again – I hate it. That being said, I think I did a good job today of bridging the “Casual Day Natalie” with the “Career Natalie” with the “Natalie Natalie”. Note that the outfit looks much better in person than in this picture, because in this picture, I look like a fat heifer.
These “greyish khaki skinny jeans” are from Banana, and I’ve never worn them, because I’m paranoid that they make my legs look like pale sausages, but whatever. They kind of are pale sausages. However, this WICKED jersey blazer in dark army green is one of my new favourite things. It’s from Club Monaco, who are blowing it out of the water lately. I find they’ll have two seasons of shite and one AMAZING season that has its finger on the pulse of what’s goin’ on in fashion right now. This season is one of the good ones.
Finally, I call these my “Death Boots”:
Because the very first time I wore them, I was walking through The Bay – right in front of all the perfume and makeup kiosks… and my heel slipped, and I bailed so dramatically that I’m pretty sure they watched it on the security cameras for months to come. Here is my illustration of said bail:
So far today I’ve been bail-free. I’ll keep you updated. Damn Death Boots are cursed.
