Got my black watch trousers back from hemming and busting them out! I went for a very simple pairing today with a fluid black knit top with scrunched sleeves, my black patent Ara booties, black leather hobo-style handbag and when I head out the door, my ancient black quilted jacket.
Love these trousers…BUT…I think I may have bought them one size too large. I wanted a fluid fit but as I'm walking around this morning, I'm constantly tugging them up and because of the leather yoke, there are no belt loops so I can wear a belt. Yikes! I'm actually thinking of nipping to The Bay at lunch time to see if they have the size smaller. At the very good sale price, it would be worthwhile. This is a lesson to myself (and others) to try on more than one size - I just grabbed this size and put them on and went "yep, that's the slouchy type of fit I'm after". But I'm not entirely sure of my size these days and didn't even try on the size smaller :(
Anyway, what do you think of the outfit? Do the trousers look too big to you? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
