Weeks 37-38 Challenge

8 Dec

Once again I am late, late, late with this post! This time I blame the lead up to the holidays, it seems like there’s something going on every day! It also doesn’t help that I have had a really bad few days but that’s a story for another time or a PhD-related blog that I could fill with encyclopedia length posts of ranting (I have no plans on starting one though!).

In my work wardrobe I have several pairs of dress pants however, they are either black or brown. I currently do not own a grey pair. So building on my theme of grey clothing from my last challenge I am going to try to find a pair of grey dress pants with some weight to them to get me through the winter. Don’t worry, I’m not going to start wearing grey on grey anytime soon.

I’m really liking this wool pair from Theory:

Theory Max CW Pant $395

So this?they? (anyone else find it hard to properly write about pants?!) will serve as my inspiration.

Now I’m going to wait until I’m in a better mood before I go shopping (let’s just say grey is a good reflection of my current demeanor, or red maybe) and hopefully I can find a nice pair with some stretch.

With all the Christmas lunches and parties I have coming up I’ll be lucky if what I buy for this challenge still fits me after Christmas!

Quick note: The normal rules apply for this challenge even though I was late posting it so expect a results post less than a week and a half from now.
