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.

(all outfit pieces thrifted unless otherwise noted)

    There you go, rocking my world again showing off your “outfit composition skills” by creating lovely multiple outfits that have one clothing article in common. And, you look fabulous in all of them. I love each one for varying reasons.

    If I had to choose just one, I would say the third one is my favorite too. (Maybe it’s because I could picture myself wearing that outfit and feeling cool and confident as well.)

    Thanks so much for sharing this fun with us. (Great job modeling too.) Thanks to mr. happy stuff for the photography. BTW, how are you liking your bare escentuals by now? Would love to hear some more feedback since you’ve been using for awhile.
