OK, after yesterday's grey pants and blue button down shirt outfit that bored me to tears, I decided to give pants another shot and try to wear a pants outfit that felt more like my usual style. I wore some Gap Modern Bootcut trousers in red (size 4, unfortunately they've bagged out a bit over the day) and my black Anne Fontaine button down blouse. I added a Jason Wu for Target Milu cat scarf for my required dose of whimsy, then the Kate Spade trench for one of my signature pieces, and the structured WHBM red snakeskin handbag. I was originally planning to wear black Mary Janes, but the pants were too long for mid-heel pumps so I had to wear high heels. So I decided to wear the leopard print B Makowsky Heist pumps with red trim. I didn't intend to do pattern mixing and double cat prints, but why not, it's more fun that way!
I think the week of pants was helpful because I realized that I can wear pants and make them my style, it just takes more effort (thinking about pants length, making sure the top is more interesting, which shoes you can wear with what hem length, etc).
Here's the week of pants in review--vote for your favorite!
