For the past few years, I have absolutely lived in jeans between the months of September and April, and every year, I vow to dig myself out of the rut. There is more to my fashion life than denim! I tell myself. This year, I’m actually doing it. It’s required ordering and returning a lot of options but it has made getting dressed in the morning even more fun. Below, my favorite finds, all of them under $125 and several under $58:
+These wide-leg cropped pants (seen above on Monica de la Villardiere — I own in the ivory frost color she’s wearing, too, and you can see me in them here) are so chic and currently $25. I have been wearing them with pointed toe flats or mules and slim-fit/layering knits. I’m intrigued by her styling with pointed toe suede boots, too!
+I joined the waitlist for these corduroy pants in the dark olive colorway, though I’m intrigued by the tan, too. I have no idea if the shape/dimensions will work on me, but I love the way they are styled with ballet flats and a striped button-down in the olive color — preppy with a twist. Just different!
+I may also order this pair of corduroy pants (in the oregano color), which has been one of the most popular items I’ve featured on the blog this fall, and just see which pair are more flattering. I love the green! Would be really fun for an informal holiday gathering (Thanksgiving, Christmas, whatever) with an ivory sweater, or paired with blush pink as seen in the photo. And if both of the above-two fits are too “out there” for you, these classic skinny-fit corduroys are chic, especially in the dusty pink color.
+For at-home, but I saw these wide-leg knit pants (in camel) and thought I might be able to rock them with a coordinating camel textured knit sweater — this would be #goalz, and this is adorable, too.
+These in the sage have caught my attention. Would look so cute with this dramatic collar top. I also like the pants in the black paired with a white tee (tucked in!) and dressy sneakers or fun flats.
+Last but not least — and these I am thinking of for Saturday morning walks with the family through Central Park — so many of you have raved about the Lululemon Align Jogger! I adore the align leggings so I’m intrigued by these! (I should also note that this similar $16 pair has nearly 22,000 five star reviews on Amazon…)
