Based on the following post, you might think I go on mission trips all the time. That would be inaccurate.
These shoes are from Colombia, and are the only remaining souvenir from my time there (I also got a REALLY great haircut, but sadly, I could never recreate it here in the States.)
It should be noted at this point that I’m bad at finding good deals and/or haggling in other countries. I find reasonable prices by American standards, but not those bargain basement deals everyone else seems to find on the mission field. I’m doing something wrong.
To complete my international look, I wore my favorite pants I bought in India. I bought them knowing that loose, pajama-like pants were still a trend, but had I realized just how big the flowy pants with elastic ankle cuffs were going to become, I would have stocked up.
I love the floral pattern of this pair (I also love that florals are so in right now), but I would have preferred the pockets to be on the side, a la 1995 cargo pants, rather than in the middle of my thigh. I always feel slightly like a clown when I wear them. But, they’re pretty, so I embrace it.
Fashion Tip of The Day: To avoid drowning in flowy clothes, balance is always key. When wearing something loose on the bottom, focus on a more tailored fit on top, and vice versa.
