You know those days when all fifty of your plans fall through and you're left with what seems like a nightmarish situation - a day completely free to do as you please. You could go sky diving. You could do the groceries. You could follow a stranger home and leave a lock of your hair in their lettterbox. Today, I was faced with that kind of day. Being faced with no plans at all leaves an alarming taste of panic in my mouth - having to juggle a million things at once (two internships, uni, writing for the uni magazine, my blog, two retail jobs, two styling/stylist's assistant jobs) means any free time is eyeballed with the utmost suspicion and the inevitable fear of wasting time.
I ended up bush walking. My friends drove me to a random hill connected to a bush of sorts, and two of them went bolting into the bush, limbs akimbo, as if running into a forest like a spastic would serve any purpose. I meowed at a friendly neighborhood cat, who replied with gusto by letting me maul it, and then scratching itself by doing the Thriller dance move while lying on the floor. Did I get anything done? No. But it was nice to do nothing to remind myself that doing nothing is just what I need sometimes.
Pants: Slouch Jersey Pant by Bassike
Jacket: Loft by Ann Taylor
Sunnies: Karen Walker
Boots: Senso on sale
Cuff: Wanderlust + Co
These are my lazy poo pants - they are wonderfully slouchy, stretchy and lightweight. Ticking off all the boxes in my search for pieces that are versatile, comfortable, effortlessly chic and let me carry as many food babies as I want. I was never one to spend anything over $30 (yes I am a cheapskate) on basics but I've come to appreciate the incredibly quality of the material that brands like Bassike and Jac + Jack use, and the incredible crafting of their deceptively simple basics.
