The Problem with Pants

The other day, Kendi wrote about the problem with skirts, when they feel too fancy for every day wear.  I realized I have the opposite problem - I feel sloppy (just look at those wrinkles from sitting at my desk!) and kind of like a boy when I wear dress pants.  This is the 3rd pants outfit I have posted to the blog, and I'm nearing 100 posts.  Do I really wear pants only 3% of the time?  I think so.  Granted, I'm not including jeans in my definition of pants.  I wear jeans pretty often.   

Maybe I've been brain-washed by my private school days.  I mean, I had to wear a dress/jumper every day from 2nd-5th grade, and then an equally unattractive skirt from 6th-high school.  And I always wore a skirt or dress to church on Sundays.

I'll probably just keep wearing skirts and dresses.

Shirt & Shoes:  Gap
Sweater:  NY&Co
Pants:  Loft


  1. I much prefer skirts and dresses for work too - love the one you had on in the previous post.

  2. I'm pretty sure I have a problem with both skirts and pants. I really do like wearing skirts and dresses, but they're not all that practical with my job and I can never seem to find a really great flattering pair of pants. My favorite work pants are some black Mossimo skinnies from Target. They're super comfy and aren't all baggy and weird like a lot of my other work pants.

  3. I think the real problem with pants is that is it harder to get the fit right. I'm always buying whatever is on sale, so if it 'fits', I get it, even if it isn't the most flattering. I should probably spend a little more on nicer pairs of pants. Maybe I will check out Target!!
