I crave colour so when I saw these pants on the sale rack at Gap (reduced from $80 to $10) I couldn't resist. As I am not leggy, I had to have the pants hemmed so tack on an alteration fee and I now have a great pair of brand new green pants for $20!
I kept the styling simple with black and white and let the pants do all the
talking screaming. I wore this outfit to volunteer at a rural pancake breakfast to promote awareness of the work that Ottawa Victim Services (OVS) does. I've been involved with OVS for six years, as a summer student, staff and now volunteer Team Leader. As part of National Volunteer Week, I was asked to share my volunteer experience with OVS and so I decided to represent the organization by wearing their colours. This ended up being a very versatile outfit that served a dual purpose for flipping pancakes (which I'd never done before, it's harder than it looks) , followed by public speaking.
