Black and White

Got this whole outfit from Zara lately. I love stripes but I don´t remember buying any in black and white before. It could be in any color combination except black and white because I find the combo a little bland but just by feeling how soft the cloth is, it´s roomy and flowy the style ( perfect for those bloated days) and that pocket at the front made me give in. Moreover it´s right on trend with it´s huge stripes and so it´s a lovely addition to my spring wearables.


As for the pants below, it has this soft velvety texture which I´m liking a lot.


The thing is, I´m a size ¨in-between sizes¨and so I usually opt for the bigger size because my hips couldn´t fit into the smaller size even if my legs are molded into perfection. As a result, the pants are a little loose and I look huge in them. Oh the agony of jeans/pants shopping! I´ve also discovered that the zipper is broken. Looks like I have to return this at all or maybe not because I really like this pair. I don´t know...


So yeah, with these stripes in my closet right now, I´m basically ready for spring. Are you? ;)

Just asking,

Che

It sounds like you have a bit of a love-hate relationship with these pants :( On another note, the stripes are chic and I LOVE Zara.

I'm obsessed with stripes, so love this look. The top looks really comfy. Love the trousers as well. They go so well with the top.

I love stripes especially when they are oversized shirts ;).If you love your trousers, keep it!

Wish I can show you the scarf soon... but so far wala pa akong makita sa closet ko na babagay sa flowery scarf and the weather here now really sucks, that makes me feel lazy all the time;(( or it could be that I am suffering from mid life crisis wahhhhhh with gray hair popping out all the time.

Have a lovely stripey day.

The stripes give you some mighty punch and texture. Very fine lined and firm at the same time.
