Linen

It somehow feels wrong to be wearing these linen trousers when just a few days ago I saw snow and hail falling from the sky. That’s right, I said SNOW. You can probably guess how I feel about that. But on to a little review of these J.Crew full-length linen pants that I have fallen in love with.

I’m usually the first to shun high-waisted pants because of my short torso, but these hit me and just the right place on my waist to give that leg-lengthening look I only see in catalogs. It is probably due to the fact that these are petite-sized and therefore perfectly proportioned so that there is some sort of separation between my underarms and my legs. Thankfully these pants come in a 32″ inseam, which is a quite a bit longer than most standard petite sizing and allows me to wear heels. Whether this is due to the fact that these are expected to shrink–since it is linen after all, I have yet to find out. I do wish these had side pockets, but I suppose it’s a fair trade off for such a great fit. Are you wondering about wrinkling? Yes, definitely, no doubt about it. You can see it pretty clearly in these photos but it really doesn’t bother me much.

Mauve trousers + Stripes

Somewhat surprisingly, I’ve been really embracing the lighter palette this season. While I really dig my typical dark neutrals, the lighter neutrals have been really calling my name as of late. I was on the fence about buying these dark blush/mauve-colored Martie pants from J.Crew, but they were on sale for something ridiculously cheap that I felt like I had nothing to lose (except well, $25). But I’m actually quite thrilled with them as they are a big departure from the black/grey/navy work trousers that are in regular outfit rotation during the work week. Here I paired them with stripes as I try to grow accustomed to mixing and matching mauve with a color that’s more adventurous.

Olive + White

I’m crying right now. Because I’m dying to wear spring outfits, and it still feels like winter outside. I am absolutely obsessed with these olive J.Crew Martie pants, and paired with white it looks so fresh! sigh. Just a few more days and maybe I can finally put away that heavy winter parka.
