My Outfit Monday: Time to bring spring to the office
So we established Stitch Fix isn't for everyone. After two boxes, I'm not sure it's for me. But I can tell you one thing: They nailed these cropped pants.
Much like the $16 Amazon curling wand, these pants have dramatically improved my workday appearance game, so much so I heard everyone is calling 2016 the Year of Brave New Katie.
I had been wanting a break from my Express Editor trousers in black and taupe, which only look good with heels. I don't wear heels to work too much, as my bulky bag for the cobbler will tell you, as the wear goes down dramatically when you wear them every day. I mentioned to my Stitch Fix stylist that I may be wiling to try cropped pants that would look better with flats and wedges.
Score. I can't even pretend the Liverpool William straight-leg trousers were a good deal, because they weren't. Deep breath. $98. BUT. I think pants — especially flattering, professional, wear once-a-week (or more), #obssessed, didn't even have to try them on or leave my house to own them — are well worth the cost.
Rounding out today's look is a long HEY THERE, SPRING tank from Misred Outfitters in St. Petersburg, a Target blazer with the striped sleeves rolled up, and my new peach lace-up wedges from ModCloth. I bought the Kate Spade cross-body bag in geranium when it was on sale. Is it work appropriate/practical? I mean, not really. But it matched too well to shelve from the weekend.
AND WOULD YOU LOOKY THERE. Those Animated Extrovert wedge are now discounted 50 percent to $24.99. Go now! Prosper!
