Wishful Thinking

Oh, pants.

I just can't get them to look right on me, and yet, I keep trying. Jeans, I love. I don't have a problem finding jeans that I like. But dress pants?

Oh, they hate me.

One of these days, I will find the perfect pair of pants for work, and then I will buy 18 pairs of them just so I never have to shop for pants again.

It's always nice to have dreams, I guess.

Tank Top: Target
Sweater: Lands End Canvas
Pants: The Limited
Shoes: Nine West

(Full Disclosure: I have a cold. Steve had it last week, Brigid had it this past weekend, and now it has made it's way to me. So I'm a little hopped up on cold medicine today. And I am apparently fixated on pants, as a result. I'm sorry...)


  1. Your kitty is batting at you in the last photo, lol! These pants look totally fine on you, but good fitting dress pants are so hard to find! Let me know if you find the perfect pair :) Heather

  2. i too used to have such a hard time with dress pants. for some reason the Express editor ones used to fit me well. i haven't had to wear any though for a long time!

  3. You know how I fell about pants...evil!! But I do think those look great on least you have luck with jeans. Hope you feel better soon!

  4. Dress pants are the WORST thing in the world, especially for short girls! I cannot find any that fit properly or that I feel comfortable in. Soooo frustrating!

    The cat looks like he is launching himself at you in the last photo. Hopefully, no one was injured ;)

  5. Your dilemma is the reason why I also don't own many dress pants, hahaha. Thank goodness my work doesn't call for them very often. I actually think these look pretty good on you -- I like the color and the wide-leg at the bottom. When you do find THE ONE, please let me know!

  6. Well, I must say, I don't know why you don't like them! I think they look great on you! And once again... I love that your cat tries to jump into your photos. =)

    Sorry you're sick! This time of year, it seems to make its rounds through our house too!

  7. I don't like dress pants either...they are so hard to get right, and I'm still convinced the ones I have don't look right on look adorable though!

  8. I think you look great! Have you ever tried Worthington's dress pants? I love the fit (& the price)!

  9. good pants ARE hard to come by. they are either too high waited, too low waisted, too short, too long, too wide, too! i'm hoping to find a good one at express! your cat is funny :)

    feel better soon!
