Here is the story about how this outfit came together: I don’t have a pair of navy pants. The end. Sorry, I should have mentioned that it was a short story. Seriously, though, answer me this, Banana Republic: why are navy Sloan pants never on sale, hm? I know, I know – I could just buy a pair of navy pants somewhere else; but I am a creature of habit through and through, and that’s not how I roll. Of my available pant choices, these check pair seemed like the best bet. With the (questionable) blessing of my husband and eldest child, I put them on and went about my day. Wearing the most random outfit seen on this blog in a while.
Now, you might ask why on earth I would buy a navy blouse if I don’t have anything to wear it with. And that, my friends, is a good question. The answer is 20% lack of foresight, and 80% wishful thinking. Or maybe it’s all the same thing. I have been looking for a pair of navy pants, and a navy skirt, for months and I figured that this blouse would work great with either option … once I had it in my closet. So we have just one tiny problem: I’m still working on that last part.
But, hey, cute blouse, amirite? It’s a stealthy way to do florals at the office. Plus, that neckline is adorable. So I say: pants, meh.
