What I Wore: Perusing the National Portrait Gallery

On the occasional weeknight, I enjoy going out after work to explore my home of DC. Luckily, Gallery Place is on the way home during my evening commute so I often hop off the metro train to explore.

Last week, when DC temps hit near 80 degrees (in February?!), I made a solo trip to the National Portrait Gallery to check out the new Obama family portraits. 

I’ve been going to this museum for years now and am a huge fan of all things portraiture. It’s open until 7 PM on weeknights and is always free to attend, which makes it convenient and affordable.

Both portraits were easy to view even though there’s usually a long line to check them out. They were vibrant and captivating in color, a rare quality in many paintings these days. 

During my visit, I rocked one of my favorite “new-to-me” Goodwill items I scored at last year’s Annandale Plaza Meetup.

As you may recall, I picked up these designer vintage Albert Nipon pants for under $5. When I first purchased them, I thought they were a bit of a fashion risk. However, when paired with a black top and funky gold accessories I knew I could make this piece work in my everyday wardrobe. I felt like this look was a little wild for the weekday, but I received many compliments! Who knew a pair of pants would make an entire outfit!

It’s hard to find pants that fit me both in length and waist, so despite my hesitation, I’m SO GLAD I took them home. I look forward to wearing them again in the summer with a yellow or pink leotard.

What do you think of my museum look, fashionistas? How would you style these pants?
