CARGO PANTS AND BOHO BLOUSE

Hello dear friends, how are you all?
CARGO PANTS AND BOHO BLOUSE
It has been quite a while since I touched my blog.  As you may or may not know we are now in a lockdown which originally started as a two weeks affair and now it has been extended by another two and it's not clear what might happen next 😟😟😟.
CARGO PANTS AND BOHO BLOUSE
On top of if, the weather is so bad, it's cold and raining all the time, so even though we are allowed to go outside to exercise or have a walk, it's not very pleasant to walk in the rain with a strong wind blowing into your face.

Anyhow, it occurred to me that rather then dwelling on the negatives, I should try and find some positive aspects of the current situation.  And here is one example of how I did it.

I figured that now is the time to do the things that you were meant to do a long time ago but have been delaying doing them for a lot of good reasons 😉.  One of those things that long has been on my agenda was cleaning up my closet, giving away the clothes that don't fit me anymore, mending lost buttons and torn hems, re-discovering some pieces that I forgot I bought and feel happy about it. 
CARGO PANTS AND BOHO BLOUSE
Case in point, today's outfit.   I was going through the shelf where I store all my jeans, slacks and other pants that don't need to be hanged and came across these cargo pants.  If my memory serves me right, I bought these pants in 2019 and wore them for the last time about 5 years ago.  When I got them out, I wasn't even sure that they would still fit but surprise, surprise they did.  That alone put a great smile on my face 😂.

I then checked out all my tops trying to figure out what can I wear with it that I haven't worn before and came across this white boho style top with tassels and intricate embroidery running along the deep V-cut of the blouse and along the slits of the sleeves.  It was a hand me down from my older daughter, she bought for herself while holidays in Brazil but grew tired of it very quickly.  I used to wear it with a white denim pencil skirt but since the skirt became too tight and went to the clothing bin, I was struggling to find a perfect fit for it.

I decided to put the two together and actually liked the result.  The khaki, which belongs to the Green colour family, works well with the red elements of the blouse (Christmas decorations are the best example of this classic combo) and the loose fit of it goes well with the tight fitted cargos.

I do apologise about the quality of the images, my husband is still learning how to use his phone when taking photos indoors 😏.

So all I need now is for spring to arrive and COVID to go so that I can wear my newly re-born outfit.

And that is all for now, do please share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Until then,

Anna

  5. So industrious! And what a way to make a positive out of a tough situation. We should probably be locked down due to the many that are refusing to get vaccinated, but the government has decided to let them take their chances. Anyway, super cute outfit! I love your sandals.

  8. Anna, I am so sorry that you are in an extended lockdown. But it is a great time to get to things that we have been ignoring. How fun that you discovered this fabulous new outfit during your closet clean out. I really like the boho top and the cute tassels. It works great with these cool cargo pants, too. And your sandals are really fun! Thanks for joining us at Stylish Monday!

  10. I really hope things get safer for you quickly so lockdown doesn't go on as long as it did in Melbourne!

    It's nice you are finding things to do to pass the time - playing in the wardrobe and coming up with outfits is always fun!

    Thanks for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! Hope you are having a nice weekend :) Busy one here with kids birthday parties, a big shopping day yesterday and taking the kids on some miniture train rides!
