Maroon Pants and Evolving Your Style


I have been wishing for a pair of maroon pants for so long and they are finally here! These are the exact same style and brand as the olive jeggings I wore earlier this week (JCP’s a.n.a. zip pocket). I debated in the dressing room for a while because there was a pair of Stylus ankle crop skinnies in a similar, but slightly darker, color. In the end I went with these because Continue reading

Black, White and Mint All Over


Day two of new JCPenney pants! You guys get a bonus post today because I had yesterday’s all written and then just never got around to putting it up. Today’s pair of jeans is a different brand, though the same cut as yesterday. These are the Stylus brand that I love so much (see the ankle crop jeans I wear nearly every day for evidence of this). I have to say that if I’m comparing today’s jeans to yesterday’s Continue reading

Olive Pants, Fall Colors


Colored pants have been at the top of my shopping list for a while now, but this weekend I finally made it a priority to go out and find some. And I’m so glad I did!

Wearing White: to See or Not to See (Through)


I’m a big fan of white clothing, but I have a little trouble maintaining that initial pristine condition. I am honestly kind of a clumsy person, so in wearing white it’s fairly likely that I will spill on myself, draw on myself, or lean up against a wall of wet paint. Okay, not that bad, but I’m pretty clumsy. So while I love the idea of wearing more white, I’m also a little scared of it.

The other challenge with white or other pale-colored clothes is that Continue reading

Asymmetric Hemlines


You know how most of the time when you try on clothes, you look in the mirror, check yourself from a few angles, think, “yeah, okay, this looks good,” and add it to your “probably going to buy it” pile. But sometimes, every now and then, you put something on and as soon as you pull it into place you know that this is the perfect thing and wonder where it has been your whole life? That is exactly how I felt about this top when I tried it on this weekend.  Continue reading
