Adrien: Second Verse, Same As The First.

Oh hey there, yep. Wearing the same J.Crew pants I was wearing in Tuesday's outfit:


I really only have two pairs of work-appropriate pants (and these are really a bit too casual for work if we're being honest) but I love army green as a neutral so I should probably buy a pair that's actually work-appropriate. Something without the big pockets. Except, they don't exist. I really like this pair at Anthropologie but...pockets. Banana has a cute pair too. But pockets. Pockets. Pockets. Pockets. I give up. Let's move on. 


Jaunty arm! The top I'm wearing is an old Ann Taylor thing and it has a cute exposed zipper in the back that I always forget to show you. This intense magenta-purple is a favorite color of mine because I am not a pastel girl at all. This top at Limited is dead on with the color and this tee at Anthro is a nicely toned-down version. If you just want a plain scoopneck tee in this color, LL Bean has you covered. 


Details! I'm wearing my Madewell Ensign necklace which is currently back up to full price, but this Morocco Pendant necklace is quite similar and it's on sale. Madewell does such nice jewelry. I think a bracelet is gonna be next. Speaking of, I'm wearing a Giles and Brother cortina cuff and an Alexis Bittar ring I got in my Box of Style. I'm carrying my old MBMJ Hillier Hobo.  The awesome updated version is on sale and tempting me quite a lot. Wah.


So I don't freeze to death, I threw on my Eileen Fisher cardigan. When I bought this cardigan I was worried I wouldn't get much use out of it and then proceeded to wear the everloving shit out of it all winter long. It's soft, it's comfortable, it's well-made, the color is interesting. I can't find my exact cardigan, but this one is the same color (midnight) and very similar. This one would be a good summer option and it's on sale! Ooh, and if you wear an XL this one is nearly identical to mine and on sale for $83! I'm going to make old ladies out of all of you, I'm sorry. 


Here's a schlumpy close-up photo to show you the actual color of my cardigan. It's a purplish-navy. I dig it. The end.

  1. The old J. Crew Andie chinos in fatigue are your solution - they pop up on eBay and Poshmark all the time and they're perfect!

  2. I realized today that, with the exception of jeans, I have exactly zero pairs of pants. I think I was so cranky that they broke up with me.

    1. This is a very effective way to break up.

  3. I just realized I have nothing in the way of dress pants except for the black pants I bought to wear when I was singing and was ordered to dress like a waiter.

    I blame my habit of watching police procedurals. I developed an allergy to the kind of pants they sell at Banana Republic. I didn't want to look like an FBI agent. You know, those polyester pantsuits the women are always wearing.

    You don't look like an FBI agent, and this is why you are my office fashion idol.

  5. How about those Sloan-fit ones from Banana Republic? I don't have that particular style, but love my other-brand stretchy slims with all my tunics and too-short dresses.

    1. Hey, thanks! I tried them on yesterday and I'm between sizes. Stupid Banana.
