In search of the PERFECT pants – Love, LOFT…

Hey there!  So, I’m working on this blog post and it’s about 9:33 pm at night.  Most of my posts are done at night and most of my pics are taken early in the morn or on the weekends.  All leading to…yep…you guessed it…like most of you out there…I’m a working gal.

So…what does every working professional need…and honestly…this transcends most occupations…the perfect pair…of black pants.  Call ’em slacks, trousers..hell…call these yoga pants!!  

I’ve been very lucky to have lost a little weight…thru hard work and determination (and giving up my fave snacks and basically all forms of cake)…my formally fave “go-to” pants – which were a few years old and faded anyway – are just too big.  (BIG victory actually!)

So that set me on the search for the typically – impossible to find – black pants.  And…after lots of searching – both in stores and online I decided to try a promising pair from LOFT.  CLICK HERE FOR THE PERFECT PANTS!!

Why I LOVE these pants:

  • Comfort – The fabric is just thick enough, soft, stretchy and forgiving.  
  • Fit – I’ve read the reviews on the LOFT site and although a few people didn’t care for the fit – depending on body style – the majority felt the way I do…perfect!  Not too tight, comfortably hugging all the right spots and with a slightly cropped leg.  
  • ELASTIC waistband – and yeah…that’s a good thing when its done the right way.  These pants fit tight to the waist but not too close.  I can easily wear a belt with these (there are no loops but I just fasten it over the waist) or just wear them without one and both look great!
  • Versatile – I have worn these to work, with a t-shirt and sneakers and with a yoga top….and they all worked…all were comfortable and looked great!

So…there you have it…my official endorsement of THE necessary staple to every lady’s wardrobe!  And a hard one to find!  Try them out and see what you think!  They’re currently on sale too!

Also…I’ve got some really cute shots of my beautiful hair accessories from Zara.  I just love them…and the quality of the gems and the hair clips in general is much higher than what I’ve encountered at other stores.  Check them out at Zara!

Oh and the top is by Who What Wear from Target…sadly it’s no longer available (I’ve searched everywhere) and that’s too bad because its a classic gingham check which is versatile and its a great transition piece since it’s still in the 80’s in the afternoons here.  The sleeves are adorable too and totally IN right now…

Annnd…it was part of a set (a similar matching checked midi skirt)…which I think WWW and Target should keep in stock because…hello!  I’m throwing on a pair of tights and I can belt the top and use it as a jacket over a long sleeved shirt and/or just throw on a cute coat or cardigan and I’m Winter ready! 

Ok..gotta hit the hay!  Happy shopping!!

A LBD from the LOFT…on Cortneybre…

This might just be the PERFECT little black dress. 

Recently, LOFT ran a 60% off their Sale, Sale.  Most people think I spend oodles of money on clothes.  I’ll admit – I do spend some – and possibly more than most.  However, its hard to beat 60% off of an already reduced price.  I bought several items from this sale and this one is my favorite.  

When I ordered it, I thought “oh great…like you need yet another black dress”.  This dress IS different though.  It really can be dressed up or down very easily and the faux leather really adds a cosmopolitan element.  I can layer it over leggings and flats or wear it with heels and ruffles.  The possibilities are endless.  It has now gone into the “Go-To” area of my closet for days when I want to look great without a lot of effort.

I can’t forget to mention, especially with Valentine’s Day approaching, this wonderful “Ohh La La” Bella clutch I’m holding by Kate Spade.  This one is no longer for sale on the Kate Spade site although you can find it  here on eBAY.  I’m currently craving  the Love Birds Wink Clutch by Kate Spade also.  Its so extremely stinkin’ cute, I can hardly stand to not buy it right now!

I hope you guys have an excellent weekend!
