Khakis For The End Of The Week

Khaki is another High WASP all-time favorite color. The best kind of khaki trousers are the kind that show up in your wardrobe, coming from you know not where. Mystery khakis. They belonged to your son, or your daughter's friend. They are a little too big to wear anywhere but home. Walk in the front door, kick off your heels, drop the laptop case, purse, and car keys, go into your bedroom. Off come the navy blue linen pants and the white t-shirt and the work-appropriate bra. Off comes the makeup. Re-emerge in khakis, sane bra, tank top, flip flops. Go pour a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Wander out front and smell the second bloom of roses. Not as sweet as the first, but appreciated for their perseverance.

Love it. Maybe I could be a High WASP after all. :)

Another superb post Miss Privilege, it almost makes me feel like I am sitting there by your side, clad in similar fashion. Do you have an opinion on the proper color of khaki? The stone-colored kind as opposed to the khaki-kind?

May your weekend be lovely,

Absolutely the first things I have to do when I get home from work are to shower and change.

There is something so relaxing about shaking off the physical restrictions of office clothing and stepping into comfortable, 'me' clothing.

Love this post!

Have a wonderful weekend.

I have to know.

Is that

1. A "sane" bra as opposed to an "insane" one?
2. The "same" bra?
3. "Sans" bra?

Sane. As opposed to crazy and uncomfortable. As for the color of khaki, hmmm. I think I'm on the traditional side. Especially the color 75 washes later...others?

How come other people's "acquired" pants are always so much more comfortable?
Khaki is one of those things I learned to appreciate with age, like myself.

I'm a khakis girl all the way. Always have been. I actually detest jeans and really don't even like them on other people. Khakis are IT! :)
