[READ THIS IN YOUR BEST CHEESY INFOMERCIAL VOICE!]
Feeling under the weather but still have to go to work? Wish you could curl up on the couch in your jammies instead of sit at your desk all day in uncomfortable work clothes? [This is the part where you see black and white footage of people at work looking grumpy and fidgety.]
Now you can do both! (Sort of.)
INTRODUCING: WORK PAJAMAS!
With this simple outfit, you can feel like you’re at home in your comfy sweats while you’re at the office – without breaking the dress code!
[OK, now the infomercial’s in color and everyone looks really happy.]
These loose fitting pants are dressy on the outside and have silky lining on the inside. And who doesn’t love to sleep in a plain cotton t-shirt? Just cover with an oversized black cardigan and you’re ready for work!
But wait! There’s more!
Call in the next 10 minutes [please don’t call me] and you’ll also get these versatile black wedges! They have the height of a heel and the comfort of a flat. Perfect for finishing your work pajamas look.
[Ahem. It’s me now. I’ve had a cold the past couple days but I made it out into the world on Friday. This is what I wore.]

So the Take One, Pass it On challenge was definitely a challenge today. Review yesterday’s outfit if you please. The pieces of my outfit were: black sweater, mint pants, pink pumps, and a bow bracelet. I had already worn the sweater twice, so that was ruled out. I wasn’t going to repeat the shoes because I was going to class, and I’m not about to walk up and down stairs with a heavy backpack in 3″ heels. I’m just not. And the bracelet seemed like cheating.
As you can see, I was left with one option. I was skeptical of wearing these semi-dressy pants to school, so I dressed it down the best way I knew: with a sweatshirt.
And that’s why I think the Take One challenge is so great. I really like this outfit and I never would have put it together without this crazy remix thing. (Do you hear that? …It’s the sound of me tooting my own horn.)

I have two stories for you today: The Pants Story and The Pumps Story.
The Pants Story goes like this: This was the only pair of awesome silver and mint pants at Ann Taylor and they were a billion percent off. They were a size smaller than all the other skirts, pants, and dresses I have from AT, but I decided to go for it and…success! They fit! And I had just had a big plate of nachos, so if they weren’t too small then, they would never be too small.
The Pumps Story goes like this: I didn’t have any hot pink suede pointy toe pumps. So I got some. And now my life is much better because I have hot pink suede pointy toe pumps to wear with my silver and mint pants that aren’t too small even post-nachos.
What? I didn’t say they were good stories.

When I was in middle and high school, nobody wore cropped pants. It was either capris right under the knee (what were we thinking?) or flared pants that were at least an inch too long. Anything else, and you were wearing “highwaters” and basically committing social suicide.
Times have changed and I’m so glad, because I love the cut of these pants! And I can continue loving them because the bottoms of them won’t get torn up and dirty from dragging the ground.
So…how many years do you think it will be until these are highwaters again? Be sure the let me know because I don’t want the kids at school to tease me.
