It's pants weather. (No exclamation point since I hate colder weather. My small victory is that I'm still not wearing any socks.) Every time I wear these pleated pants, I think of: a) Avant Blargh and b) all the pairs of Z.Cavaricci pants I got rid of in my past life. (It was '80s New Jersey. There were a lot of IROC-Z's as well.)
I don't want to say I think this outfit is dullsville but I think it is just the right kind of neutral uniform I want in my life. I think my closet goal is to have a billion gray, black and navy tailored neutrals for day-to-day life and then maybe 10-15 "special" vintage pieces. And by "special" I mean so ugly that I am probably the only person who loves them.
