The full title of this week's theme is this is... my most favourite outfit that expresses my individual style. I am way past thinking about expressing my individual style. I know what's me and I tend to wear it regardless of fashion, save the odd fun, cheap item.
However, if I had to describe my style, I'd say simple, clean looking, and hopefully at times elegant. I have never, ever, really never, liked cute. Funky and quirky don't do it for me either.
When I worked, it was wool slacks (usually black) with a sweater, often cashmere, or a nice long sleeved, ballerina neck t-shirt. (We had heat that really worked.) On my feet? flats or a very very low heel and jewelry was my gorgeous wedding ring, and small diamond hoop earrings, and a gold Italian bracelet. Sometimes if I was bored, I'd add one of my many scarves.
For the 9 months we were not in session, I usually wore a variation of the vintage Gap below. I have not worn pantyhose in over a dozen years, but back in the 80s job when I did, I wore them with suit skirts several inches above my knees. I did outreach, rep'ing my boss, and they did remember my mind and my legs, and my boss.
And then there's me in a sort of version.
I haven't bought many khakis lately, since I have a bunch of patterned crop pants. However, most of those do not have pockets, and it bugs the hell out of me. There are times when I just want to carry the plastic and my keys. So here I am with a pair of khaki shorts (with pockets)and a top I didn't think I'd wear much more this summer, but we have been blessed with cool-ish, dry days. Heaven!
btw, I switched to some patterned crops since dh and I too often had the same kind of outfit on, and looked like geezer twins.
