meet my new favorite pants. i found them at goodwill a few weeks ago. they needed a few interior patches, but they only cost me $2. the name brand is “pilcro and the letterpress” and they were originally $118 from anthropologie (i love a good bargain story!). they are stretchy and the corduroy is the finest, softest wale i’ve ever felt. initially, i wasn’t sure about the enormous flared legs, but i’ve grown quite fond of them. the color seems to go with almost half of my wardrobe, so i put together three outfits using these pants to show you here. this first outfit was one i wore to work last week on a day that i was teaching a (non-messy) toddler art class. i think of it as my “art teacher” outfit.
next is a slightly dressier outfit. i haven’t actually worn this one out in public yet, but i think i will very soon. i love the little bronze “glitter” in the top and the drape of this soft, lightweight cardigan.
and i finally used one of the new scarf tying techniques that i found on pinterest! i used the “magic trick” knot found on this video around the 2:37 mark. very easy and a much more “full” looking knot than the one i usually do.
