Is summer over yet? No? This summer seems particularly long, probably because I still have to go to work. I’m proctoring our school’s entrance exams this week, which I’m not looking forward to at all. And of course, the temperature decides to go up to 100+ for the whole week. So this outfit is the best I can do while still maintaining some form of professionalism. I mean, if I’m going to spend 6 hours sitting around with nothing to do except to stare at a bunch of sweaty, nervous kids, I might as well be comfortable.
Wide-leg pants are definitely my go-to this summer. I’ve worn them before, of course, but this year the stores are really saturated with them, making it that much easier to choose (or harder, if you’re plagued by indecision like me.) That said, these pants are actually custom-made by a tailor. I went with my mom to the fabric market back in April and bought a bunch of fabrics for my new summer wardrobe. The shirtdress I wore a couple of weeks ago was one of the items I got made from those fabrics, and these pants/culottes are another. Normally I don’t get pants custom-made because they’re easy to find (unlike dresses), but this pattern is just too cool to pass up.
