Wide Leg Pants

LOFT Wide Leg PantsIf you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen these wide leg pants awhile back on my stories. Since then, I’ve been wearing these every other week at the office. I welcomed time away from skinny jeans and tighter black pants with open arms as soon as I found these. Typically, I’m a petite in LOFT pants, but since these were meant to be a bit cropped, they worked out better than I imagined. LOFT Wide Leg PantLOFT Wide Leg Pant LOFT Wide Leg Pants

I will note that by the end of the day, these stretched a bit in the waist, so if you’re in between sizes, I’d recommend sizing down. I paired the pants with a sleeveless sweater that’s a few years old but I found an almost identical version. I actually like the cut on this version even more.

When I was at an agency, I dressed up jeans on a regular basis, but at my new job, I only wear jeans on Fridays. Some of my current work staples include the Sloan pant from Banana Republic, this pleated midi skirt from J.Crew (limited sizes, similar here), an old A-line J.Crew Skirt (here’s an almost identical version) and my drawstring and lace trousers from J.Crew (sadly both are sold out). However, as the warmer weather hopefully begins to stay, I’ll be swapping pants for skirts (I love this one and this one) and easy dresses and will share a few more everyday work wear outfits on the blog.

And if you’ve been looking for a great work tote, I love this faux leather scalloped option for under $50.

Shop the look: Ann Taylor Sweater (old, similar here) / LOFT Tie Waist Pants (I’m 5’2″ and wearing a 00R) / Sam Edelman Pumps (another work staple) / Louis Vuitton Speedy

  • Have wagon will travel ❤️ Ainsley has been loving every minute of our trip to visit her cousins.
  • So incredibly excited to share Ainsley’s nursery on @theeverymom today with a fun Q&A! I share more about my career journey, some of my mom hacks and my favorite pieces in her room. It means so much to be featured on one of my favorite sites. I included the link in my bio. 📷 by @quyenhom
  • I think I took 100 pictures and gave her 100 kisses tonight. I was sad I wasn’t the first one to give her a top knot so I made up for it by documenting it at every angle.
  • I got to daycare pickup today and they had given Ainsley her first top knot 😭 We got home, found her favorite animals and I swapped my heels for some sneakers because we needed to take a lap in the wagon before family night. And yes, this is the Target dress from the day I got trapped in the store because of a torrential downpour outside. I was wearing a white linen top and desperately needed something to cover up my now see-through shirt and was already running late for a meeting. I also had to purchase an umbrella and rain boots. I wore this dress over my jeans and top and am now challenging myself to see how many ways I can style it. Next up? Layering it with a turtleneck. http://liketk.it/2FCSq #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKbaby #LTKfamily #LTKworkwear #itsbanana
  • Spending my mom’s birthday at one of our favorite places. Her friend owns the farm, and it’s always been special for our family to come here. This was after Ainsley would only nap in my arms this morning (which never happens) so I like to think it was my mom’s way of sending the sweetest hug today.
