dress like an adult

so, most of the looks i feature here on my blog would probably be considered.. casual. i tend to stray from the *everyday* kinda look only every once in a while, and i do like to add fantasy elements in as well (or just go all out and be a freak of nature ahaha), but it’s rare that i actually.. dress up. y’know?

i figured it was time to change that. ;3

dressing like an “adult” is something that is kinda hard for me — despite the fact that i am, in fact, an adult. i guess i just prefer the jeans && t-shirt kinda look more than i do some tweed pants and a blouse?

however!

these pants i’m wearing from ingenue that are out for FLF (and are totally worth grabbing if you haven’t already!) just ..inspired me, i guess, to dress in a more *business* casual look than normal. i love these for their high waist && the zipper detail on the back (which i unfortunately forgot to photograph, ’tis my bad), and the prim cuffs are flared in a way a lot of dress pants i own irl are. the color && fabric are perfect for fall, too, which is a definite plus. and the price makes these an insta-buy for me!

there’s a purple-y shade of these pants as well out for 50L, but i liked the gray. gray is one of my go-to colors in world, it’s neutral but it’s not black && since i own *so much* black already.. gray is usually the color i go for now.

but i could not help myself when it came to this cropped sweater in, yes, black (as soon as i finish saying i own too much black, lolol) from the secret store. it was out for lazy sunday this past weekend && if you grabbed it, you should rejoice. it’s adorable! it’s just short enough to meet the top of these pants && i really like the way it looks layered over a tank (one of my favorite tanks for layering at that, from fri.day). works for a more dressy look, but would srsly look just as nice with some jeans or a skirt. the prim attachments make it really pop for me, too — the slightly puffy sleeves, the bottom prim that makes it billow in a *flattering* way, and there are buttons on the chest too that i decided not to wear. very nicely made and versatile.. you can never own too many cute sweaters for fall. 😉

in fact, that’s definitely something i need to go shopping for. sweaters. tank tops and tees, i own in every color of the rainbow. but long sleeves && heavier fabrics are slim to none in my inventory. so can you guess what i’ll be doing over the weekend? bwahahah~
