Flared jeans & pastel shirt

by morganvsmorgan on June 9, 2014

I’ve worn this outfit twice in the space of 3 days – and to be honest I’d probably be wearing it tomorrow too if it didn’t require giant platform shoes.  On the upside, it’s nice masquerading as a tall person and I’ve been hugging people who are usually taller than me just to know what it would feel like to be vertically dominant. Would recommend.

This is my favourite coat- I bought a second one in gray. Black & streamlined, but with enouh detail to keep it interesting. A perfect balance of feminine and masculine; my theory that this would make a great men’s jacket was confirmed when a guy accidentally put this on at a party the other night and it looked fabulous.

The shirt is actually from Coles (yes, the supermarket), and the jeans are from Target. I was looking for flared jeans for a while before I came across these & decided that when it comes to jeans I need something I can try on first (so no internet buys for me), and that I didn’t really want to pay upwards of $100 for a style of jeans I might end up hating.

I love that Coles came out with a supermarket line of clothing that has shirts in an interesting colour (I noticed they also had matching skinny jeans, if you wanted a monochromatic look for ~$40 altogether) , and I’m also impressed with Target for offering a budget pair of flared jeans. They also come in a dark wash, and if you’re not close to a store they have a really good return policy so you could always order in a few sizes to try them on.

Now I just need a second, shorter pair so I can wear them with something other than platforms.

But not flats.

I’m not there yet.

 

Shirt- The Coles Mix Line .

Slouchy leather & structured floral blazer

by morganvsmorgan on July 31, 2013

Today centred around a doctor’s visit, so my outfit had to strike a balance between being visually pleasing & comfortable. I wanted something slouchy and non constricting, but not quite crossing into ‘I’m giving up, please carry me back to bed‘ territory. Not because I’m too good for that, but rather because my recent fever had me firmly within that territory for over a week, and I was starting to entertain melodramatic worries about never being able to dress myself again.

I’ve been looking for baggy pants to offset the leggings I’m generally wearing in Winter. I find that most of my friends are going for “boyfriend jeans” but I’ve never found a pair I liked on myself, which is unsurprising considering I’ve never felt that comfortable in any style of jeans. I’m not sure how I feel about referring to them as “formal trackies” but, you know, between feeling like trackies & being this easy to style, that’s sort of what’s going on here. I enjoy the sheer unsexiness of them; they do nothing to flatter, enhance or flaunt your shape. I would happily have worn this with the black singlet alone, but it is winter here, so I threw on a structured blazer in a garish floral pattern to balance out the silhouette. 

Well, I’m currently in bed, still wearing this outfit & watching Embarassing Bodies, so I can definitely call this one a success in terms of comfort.

Have some strange urge to keep updated on my outfits? Maybe you should be following me on bloglovin, twitter or instagram ;)

Hooded bodysuit + Stocking arms

June 16, 2013

After months of refusing to buy clothing, I finally caved in and bought this blackmilk hooded bodysuit that I’ve wanted for ages (amongst a few other things I also felt the need to own ) . Although I’ve now bought a chunk of clothing at once (which I’ll be showing soon because I’m soooo excited […]

Winter shift dress

June 6, 2013

As I’ve probably lamented more than a hundred times on this blog so far, winter has a way of sucking the life out me and my wardrobe. Winter involves the kind of planning that I don’t seem to be able to execute early in the morning as I gollum-crawl my way out of bed towards […]

Body chain & owl eyes

May 28, 2013

Its days like today where I understand why people make blogs as a testament to a version of their lives so whitewashed that it bears only a faint resemblance to the real thing. Today was pretty low key. I was going in search of new sneakers – I’ve had my old ones for about 4+ […]

Catsuits are the way of the future

March 27, 2013

Another outfit from my recent trip to Melbourne.     If there’s one thing in my wardrobe I always want more of, its catsuits. I don’t own a plain black or white t shirt (I’m really shit at buying “basics”), and I bought my first pair of black jeans for work only today. But catsuits? […]

Outfit Post: turtleneck & gold triangles

March 21, 2013

Still in the Melbourne trip pictures because I’m amazingly shit at allowing myself more than 5 minutes to get dressed and take pictures of an outfit. I’ll work on it. Black and gold is classic, turtlenecks are classic & black leather is.. classic? So I’m going to go ahead and refer to this as classic […]

Outfit: sky blue terry toweling

February 28, 2013

This was a hand me down, incase you’re wondering how I ever came to have something of this material in my possession. I’m not about to introduce terry-towelling as one of my wardrobe staples, but I will say that my aversion to it is now mostly gone, especially if it exists in cute tennis-dress-like shape. […]

Here’s me being super seedy the day after Melbourne Big Day Out. At the point these photos were taken, I had just gotten out of the shower & rushed into clothes & onto the balcony to take photos real quick before all the shit we wanted to get done that day. Also this is the […]

Outfit post: Snakes on a Plane

February 4, 2013

Plane outfits have always been a bit of a thing for me. This is mostly because I have an irrational fear of flying and I always think that if there’s a good chance I’m going to die I should do so wearing something vaguely awesome. Realistically, that should mean dressing up every time I get […]
