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.

    Definitely try dynamite if you have one near you! I love their pants (they may need to be hemmed though, since if I recall you are on the petite side). I have a grey pair from dynamite and I really like them. Their pants are great if their cut works for you, a lot of their pants are similar cuts. Also try the sake rack at ricki’s, they regularly have black/grey/ whatever dress pants on sale and TONS of them are 30 bucks or under. Just some ideas! Good luck! Sorry to hear about your school stress – I swear they love to burden us with stuff around the holidays!! You’ll get through it, don’t worry!!

    Um, sale rack! But by the sounds of things, perhaps you’d prefer sake first! Ha ha!
