it's raining menswear

This week has been solid rain, and it's really putting a damper on my photo-taking (but clearly, not my puns).  No sunlight, a broken lens and a lost remote are adding up to some subpar photography.  Grr.

I would've skipped the documentation yesterday, but I LOVED this outfit and wanted to share it.  It was so, so comfortable, too!  Which we all know is an automatic win in my book.

I've long lusted after cropped plaid trousers, but every pair that I've tried on in stores are cut too slim in the legs and leave for a rather unflattering fit ... which leaves for a rather grumpy Kyla.  So, I made it work.  I bought a pair of trousers at JCPenney and cropped them on my own.  I was still a little hesitant about how it would turn out, but was pleasantly surprised!  And since I woke up to every wife's favorite words from her husband - "you forgot to set you alarm" - a side bun was all I could muster together for the hair, but next time, I think some long waves would really set it off.
