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

  • This sweet little handprint ornament made me go 😍 every time I passed it on our tree this year. We went to @glazepottery in Thiensville to make it, and I may have already told Bill what I want for Mother’s Day since I definitely teared up when I saw it there (motherhood is emotional haha) - a mug with two handprints with the saying “These hands hold my heart” in the middle. Wink, wink, nod, nod @williamritt just in case you forgot.
  • This video clip from our first dance has been in my Instagram ‘Drafts’ since our anniversary in September (better late than never?). This January marks 10 years together and these last few months have been some of the most incredible yet. Watching you become a dad makes me so grateful that Ainsley and I are both yours ❤️ love you, @williamritt! And we’re forever grateful for @russelled and @kaileydickerson’s incredible surprise.
  • We’re keeping things festive over here for the next week 🎄 This is the tree that my mom would put up in my room as a little girl. It was pretty special to put Ainsley’s first ornaments on it this year.
  • Merry Christmas ❤️ The Ritts
  • I love how you can see the cardinal ornament so well in this photo. A cardinal is one of our signs from our mom (along with Ainsley flicking us off 🖕🏼😂). And little Kevy’s angel ornament is also right at the top. My mom loved ornaments (she got one every time we traveled) and traditional Christmas decorations so this setup along with all of our family photos makes my heart pretty full ❤️
