I kicked off this fine morning with pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin spiced coffee and a whole lot of good news! My daughter, Penelope, just became a brand rep for a sweet little company (see my Instagram for more!) and I just realized I love ankle cropped trousers more than, well… whatever I claimed to love prior to this. I believe that these pin-striped pants are perfect for a polished day look, followed by a dressy night out!
I used to shop at Express and wear trousers to job interviews. Now, the only bosses I answer to are barely 3 feet tall and they don’t enforce any dress code. Heck, they barely wear pants themselves. So, I’ve said “No” to any pant that resembles a fancier version of leggings, simply because it meant “business, business business.” ** Lego Movie anyone? ** It didn’t occur to me that I could dress them down or make them sexy until I picked up a pair at Target from their Who What Wear line.
Honestly, I must have been bored or Parentired (which, by definition means being so tired of parenting that you literally just go through the motions like a Mombie). I tried them on and found myself glancing in the mirror quite a lot sans that. ↓
