Pants? Pants!

This does not happen often. Pants.

Well, the stars aligned today. I needed to be at work at 8. I slept terribly last night, dreaming of blogs, food logs, columns and such. I dragged my butt-ocks out of bed and knew it was a pants day.


Save time shaving the legs, of course!

We can only hope that the bit of exposed leg was not looked at closely today!

These capris were a sale purchase from JCrew earlier this year.I actually tried them on 3 different times! The first time, this size was too tight and the price was too high. The next, we were better size wise but the price was still too high. When you can go back, you can now fit into them easily and they are 20% off of the sale price? Hello?!

I originally had paired it with a white button blouse this morning, but was not feeling it. Hey - I may skip the leg shaving, but when I am having an "eh" thought and it only requires a shirt change, I am doing it!

The tshirt is from a fun boutique Ben and I visited last year in Duluth. Cheap as chips as my friends and I say!

Blazer? This was my attempt to take an outfit that was violating dress code and make it more "appropriate". Capris are against the rules! I was sitting in a cube all day testing a computer system for 10 hours - I think I was safe!

Shoes - an Off-Saks purchase from about 4 years ago...BCBG. Not a shoe meant for a lot of walking, so I knew I was safe today.

Overall? Comfortable. I have never been a huge fan of the jacket, and tend to only grab it when I am forcing, well, the "rules".

I am breaking the outfit up into pieces today for your votes!

I look forward to hearing from you!

I need to run...lots of other writing to do tonight!

Thanks all!




  1. Now that's good pants Karma, Kel! :)

  2. Love it!! I really need to save money and buy some new clothes :)

  3. It's not every day you can find a pair of capris that are cut just the right length! Everyone needs a jacket and you can mix and match this with so much. And as always, love the shoes! :o)

  4. I love pants, and these are a hit! Man, those shoes...wow - they are hot. I could never wear them, but if I could I'd go for 'em.
