I’d live in these pants…

30 Jul

This past week has been no fun.

I got food poisoning twice after eating in K-town! Bah!

But I’ve compensated with some fun shots. If you couldn’t tell already, I’m in love with my Theory pants…I pretty much wear them every week. (I’d wear them everyday if I could get away with it) They’re super comfy and make everything look chic! I don’t think there can be another match as great as these Theory pants and me!

Since I’m wishing desperately for the weekend, I decided to bring a bit of the weekend here with my casual plaid shirt. To dress it up, I paired it with some comfy flats and chain necklaces.

What are your favorite pants to wear?

Happy Friday Everyone! =)

A Bit of Plaid

28 Jan

A while ago, I was raving about plaid. Well, I finally suckered in and bought a plaid shirt from Madewell. It was the one I walked away from previously, but I saw it again cheaper, so I got it. I added a couple of darts myself to make it fitted and it turned out pretty good.

Also, I’m changing it up with some bootcut jeans. I do love my skinnies, but I have quite a few bootcut jeans and it’s about time they see the sun. I’m lucky that I got this photo in when it was sunny because it’s been raining on and off lately.

It’s all in Plaid!

28 Oct

I’ve been seeing plaid everywhere I go and although I’ve been really hesitant to love plaid, it’s starting to grow on me. From the buffalo check plaid, to the traditional flannel…it’s all gravy. But also, I realize that the best form of plaid that really hints at luxe is more subtle than most varieties. Whether in a neutral color or muted pattern, I’m all about taking the blue collar plaid pattern and making it a luxe statement.

With this pattern, it’s easy to make it a grunge or lumberjack-y, but it takes some care and effort to make it upscale. So look for ones cut on the bias to give it a diagonal flare or a deep dark jewel tones to add some depth and subtlety to plaid.

Here are some of my fave examples for less than $50. You can be fabulous and chic without breaking the bank!
