fashion chronicles: wonder-pants! (three ways)

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.

(i love this necklace!  i made it years ago and it always makes me smile.)

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.

but my favorite is this outfit that i actually wore today.

i felt so confident (and comfortable!) all day in this–a rare combination.  plus, the light and my wonderful husband’s photography skills make this my favorite shot of the day:

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.
