Khaki Kaun?


Another Sunday draws to an end! (I love being dramatic for no apparent reason sometimes, try it, it can be fun and randomly entertaining!).
I have to many pairs of blue and black jeans/pants/trousers and decided that I needed to get some variety in the 'bottoms' department of my wardrobe, I found the perfect khaki trousers at Vero Moda last weekend :) they're formal enough to be worn out and comfortable and casual enough to be worn in a more laid back manner as well, I just LOVE them! 
They're more of a camel colour, but I just enjoy calling them Khaki! Which led me to find out that; Khaki is one of the few words that the British got from us via the British Indian Army before 1947, it literally means 'dust-coloured'! The correct shade of "khaki" was also known as "Multani Mitti", meaning "the mud of Multan", Multan being a  military cantonment in Pakistan before independence. 


Wearing:
White t-shirt: thrift, embroidered vest: Kazo, Khaki/Camel trousers: Vero Moda, Cage heels: Bangkok, Belt: Paprika, Lifestyle, quilted chain bag: Hong-Kong

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,

Love
