Cut Me Some Slacks: Philip Lim and Theory Pants

These are the last few days of living out of a suitcase! Our crate arrives next week, so there’ll be no more sleeping on an air mattress in apartment full of suitcases. With no full length mirror putting together outfits is rather difficult. What I’m finding that these days along with wearing more jeans, is also wearing pants in general. So much so, I’m not sure when the last time I wore a dress. Probably a month ago, but still it’s been a while. I’m still experimenting with different ways to wear pants, but the key reason why I’ve gone back is that there are so many new silhouettes to pick from. Also, because it’s easier to layer up, with a pair of tights underneath it really adds a layer of warmth without bundling up like a marshmallow.

I got the above pair at Century21 when we were staying a few blocks away. I’ve worn these a million times since then. I love the ultra high waist and thick cotton, I just kind of wish they wouldn’t wrinkle so easy, so if anyone out there knows a good way to keep cotton crisp, do let me know!

Tory Burch boots are perfect for a day like today!

Earlier this week I work a pair of Theory wool pants that I talked about on eat, sleep, denim. They’re perfect in fit and they don’t wrinkle! I may change into these later today.

Oh! I almost forgot! Here is a view from my new apartment… can you spot the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges? It looks better in real life… really.
