Lookbook: Bridging the Gap


Get the title? I'm standing on a bridge and I'm wearing wide leg pants; therefore, I am bridging the gap. Wow--so clever.There's this wonderful trail with this awesome bridge over a creek behind where I live, and I can't believe I never thought to take photos for outfit posts here before. It's pretty cool, right? I did get interrupted by bikers a few times, but they were either staring at my dogs or wondering why the hell I was taking pictures on their trail.
♥ Wearing: Gifted patterned silk scarf (best way to wear a scarf, right?), studded top last seen on the Muse here, F21 wide leg woven pants(My new high fashion model pose -- "oh, I'm much too shy...must look away from the camera")
This is what I wore before I went to DSW. DSW was such a treat. I bought a pair of Guess wedges and Steve Madden booties for about $100 total. The Maddens had a "compare at" price of $190, were listed for $100, but were on clearance for $40. Gah, I love a good deal in the morning.♥Accessories: Filthy Magic crystal armor ring & studded collar bracelet
t+j Designs statement necklace (giveaway win from Kim from A Very Sweet Blog)Later we had a Jamaican dinner, which is the food of my homeland, so I was very, very happy with it.

Now, usually I'm in skinnies or leggings, so I'm pretty sure these wide leg pants are a first for me. But I like them. It's good to switch it up some times, right? Not color blocking, but still enjoying color.Do you think I pulled off this look?
