30x30 Day 14: I Suppose I Should Wear Pants...

Day 14:

Did anybody watch The Carrie Diaries" on Monday? It's th prequel to Sex in the City, and I'm pretty sure I like the 15 year old Carrie as much as the grown up one. And the clothes, I pretty sure the story takes place in like 1984, and it really isn't much of a stretch from what we're wearing today. I'm sure we're all making our 1984 selves very proud. :)

Onto my outfit: A year ago I wore dress pants most days, and anymore I wear them more like twice a month and to school on days when I post an outfit from the weekend.  Funny how my fashion focus can change so dramatically. I like all the pieces I'm wearing today, and if I have to wear pants, these fit like a glove, but I'd seriously take a skirt most days over any type of pant. 

I was also nominated again for the Leibster Award by Fashion Beauty Quest, so sweet! Go check it out, this girl has style!




Cardigan: Ann Taylor $3 (thrifted)
Top: Express $20
Belt: The Limited $10
Scarf: Ed Hartey $5 (Plato's Closet)
Pants: The Limited $40
Shoes: Nine West $30

  2. I think I wore those gym shorts with piping and knee socks. But I was four.

    I wear skirts and dresses more often than pants, too-unless it is raining or cold!
    Cute outfit!

  7. Wow you certainly look different in trousers (sorry I cant say pants without thinking of knickers as this is what we call our underwear in England lol) I like this look though, it looks very professional and classic.

  8. Love it!!! I totally wear pants more often but I am branching out into more skirts. I can't wait for spring and summer to bring out all my fabulous skirts. Great outfit.

    1. Thanks! I like wearing pants, I just don't really like it in pictures. I'm with you, skirts are easier in warmer weather.

  9. This might be a safe, neutral outfit but the scarf brings it to another level. It is gorgeous.

    I rather wear skirts (or dresses) before pants, too. Though some of my friends tell me I look better in pants.
