I’ll wear the pants

I don’t wear pants very often.

No, I’m not walking around in my skivvies. I’m just more of a dress and skirt kind of girl. Outside of jeans, I don’t really feel like myself in pants. Weird, huh? (Ok, maybe not that weird for me considering how much my hair alone can affect my attitude. But I digress.)

What I mean is that I really only own about two pairs of pants (that aren’t jeans). I mean, technically I have three, but one of them is fairly ill-fitting, so I don’t count that pair. (And I should probably just get rid of them already.)

HOWEVER. Now that the weather is taking a turn for the frigid, it seems like a good idea to invest in some warmer attire. Something that covers my legs. Namely, pants.

Here are two pairs that have me saving my pennies these days:

The Kate Spade Broome Street Colored Jeans in Lacquer Red:

I mean, I have made no secret of my love for Kate Spade. And I’ve been wanting red jeans for about six months now. It’s just hard to find a pair that fits properly. Not unlike real jeans. But I have a good feeling about these.

J. Crew Minnie Pant in Bi-Stretch Wool in black:

My only other pair of black pants are a little big on me, and the wide-leg trouser thing does nothing for my height. I need a fitted pair like these that are solid enough not to be confused for leggings.

Plus, I should probably buy another pair of my favorite jeans, Banana Republic’s Dark Wash Skinnies. Sigh. Love those gals.

Anyone else have a certain article of clothing they never wear? Ever find yourself suddenly craving it?
