I love this outfit, although it is admittedly not the epitome of figure-flattery. More like epitome of pyjama chic. These Cartonnier pants are as comfortable as sweatpants — lightweight, silky sweatpants. I call them my Francesca pants, because they are vaguely similar to a pair of mauve pants that my favourite Master of None character wore in Season 2 of the show. I am hoping to track down the *exact* pair on eBay or locally (secondhand, of course), but I am enjoying this slightly less polished version in the meantime.
The other pieces, save for the necklace, are not exactly new but definitely well-loved. The necklace was a consignment store impulse buy, which I’m counting as a success. Its proportions juuuust narrowly avoid being cartoonish (or, as my husband is wont to say about my other favourite statement necklace, looking like a failed third grader’s art project) but I kinda dig that whole vibe. This whole outfit somehow straddles the line of being the sartorial equivalent of jolie laide and … is that a thing? I think I am tempted to make it a thing.
