Never enough

No matter how many pairs of trousers I own, I feel like I can  never have enough. Despite assembling a very nice collection over the past 10+ years, I can’t help myself when I come across a pair that fits perfectly off the rack (notwithstanding any hemming that may be needed).

When I found these Theory trousers haphazardly strewn over a rack in the Runway section of TJ Maxx in one my trips to the US late last year, I jumped when I saw it was just my size. A trip to the fitting room to make sure it fit just right, and it was all mine. They are made of thick, heavy, cushy knit material, I could almost compare it to fleece except that it didn’t look like fleece at all, but heavy wool. It took me a while to push myself to finally hem these, but I’m so glad I finally did before spring was upon us, because these are definitely not for summer wear!

Coral

I have purchased exactly two items of color this entire year, including this Ann Taylor Crepe Wrap Blouse in this gorgeous coral shade. If you recall, I also own a J.Crew blazer (similar to this Regent blazer) in the same color. This is by no means my favorite color, but I find it extremely versatile as it is complementary to many contrasting shades as well as neutrals. Not only that, it’s flattering on almost all skin tones.

Can you believe Christmas is just 12 days away?! Where has the time gone?

One Cropped Wide Leg Pant (or Culottes), Five Ways

It’s been quite a while since I did one of these “five-ways” posts.  Truth of the matter is, posts like these are much more time-consuming than the regular one-outfit posts, but I thought I would put some effort into making one since I’ve been thinking about it for some time now. Having said that, however, I’m going to cheat and use some old outfit posts for these cropped wide leg pants, or alternatively, culottes.

From last spring, an easy, work-appropriate outfit:
