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

  • Three years without our Kev. Remembering him today and every day 💙
  • So happy to be reunited with my people after traveling for work all week ❤️
  • I feel like a bit of a broken record these days but healing takes time and healing a broken heart while trying to keep it together for your family is hard. My mom was my best friend, and while I like to think I knew how good I had it while she was alive, there are just so many more things I’d want to thank her for, especially with my new lens as a mom to Ainsley. I can’t imagine going through chemo and still trying to take care of her grown kids the way she did. I can’t imagine getting the call that no parent ever wants to receive finding out your son passed away, and then going on to keep fighting cancer for another year and a half. All while still making me breakfast on the weekend and running errands for me during the week, helping me plan our wedding (literally don’t know what I would’ve done without her and my sister), taking every phone call from me as I was navigating new jobs, visiting house after house as Bill and I tried to find our first home and so, so much more that will never fit into an Instagram caption. I see so much of my mom’s determination and stubbornness in Ainsley, and I can’t wait to see more of her as she continues to grow up. I am forever grateful to be her mom — it’s the best ‘title’ I’ll ever have. And while, I’m grateful to have had my mom for as long as I did, it still feels way too short. Today was filled with lots of giggles and snuggles but also lots of tears as I celebrate my first Mother’s Day with Ainsley and my second without my mom. I’m trying to be better about letting myself have the bad days and giving myself more grace. So I’m calling it a night and watching Bad Moms while eating ice cream in bed. Sending lots of love if you’re having a hard day and a virtual cheers with my pint of ice cream ❤️

  • When you’re on duty to supervise the sleeping baby, but you’re also on vacation so you have a margarita with lunch. I’ve been living in this jumpsuit all week. I bought it in two colors, and it’s been great to wear to the pool but also for play time with Ainsley. Plus, it came in petite and has pockets 🙌🏼 http://liketk.it/2Bftk #liketkit @liketoknow.it
