To avoid aimless buying when the stores are bursting with newness at the start of a season, I try to make a list of things that I really feel are missing from my wardrobe. You know, to keep me focused. Sometimes it even works.

This fall, 2 of the things on my list were a light chambray shirt and skinny black pants. The chambray was easy, but for some reason black pants were really hard. I wanted a pair that I could wear to work (once I have one of those job things again), so not jeans. But I also wanted to wear them more casually with flats, so not too long. But that means they needed to have a nice slim fit without being too tight, so not leggings. You see how this got hard? Finally I found these from Ann Taylor and they’re about as close to perfect as I could find! I haven’t washed them yet so we’ll see how they hold up.

What on your shopping list is stumping you right now?

  1. I also had the hardest time finding my perfect black pants (to supplement my 3 other pairs of perfect black pants). I’m on a shopping sabbatical right now, but before I started I was sure as heck going to find those black pants!

  2. love your necklace! It’s ver “Jcrew” but without the hefty price tag – great find! I am a huge chambray fan as well – It literally goes with everything! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. Very pretty! Your photos are reminding me I have a mustard bag I need to be using!
    I’m having a hard time finding a plain navy skirt right now. Seems easy enough, right?

    • The fabric is slightly stiffer than I’d like but then again that’s probably why they hold their shape well. And I haven’t washed them yet. I just did laundry so that means it’ll probably be November before I do again 🙂
