Banana Republic Petite Sloan Fit Flared Pant

I desperately needed new work pants because I been wearing my beloved Guess ones to death. They were pilling and I didn't think it was THAT noticeable until my observant coworkers (yes, plural!) made comments about it.
So this weekend, I made it my mission to find new work pants!

I went to Bebe and tried on all their pants and they were all too big. Big to the point where I had to hold them up or else they would fall down.

My next stop was BR. I haven't been to BR in awhile because their stuff puts me to asleep, but I guess work pants doesn't need to be interesting or fun. It just needs to fit and be appropriate. I tried on quite a few, but the only one that fit semi decently were the Sloan (which I have on below) and the Logan (not shown). The Logan fit closer to the legs than the Sloan but was too too big in the waist.

BR Sloan Fit Flared Pant. Size 00P. Color Sandy Taupe.
J Crew Belt. XS. (similar here)

BR Sloan Fit Flared Pant. Size 00P. Color Black.

A few comments about the pants:

  • The pants could be a tad smaller overall
  • The waist is big (measures 13" across) and a belt is definitely required
  • They look more like wide legged pants than flares
  • I love the thicker cotton-y stretch material - very comfy to wear
  • The inseam is 30" - it would be perfect if it was 1/2" shorter
  • I'm hoping these pants will shrink in the dryer (width and length wise)

A few comments about the dress:

  • I wouldn't recommend it if you have big boobs, good for the A cup sistas
  • Pretty roomy in the hips
  • I ordered the red color and I got this which is more coral
  • The slit in the back is pretty small so you can't take big steps
  • The dress is really hard to take on and off because the opening is pretty small
  • The material is pretty thin and cheap
Despite all the negatives, I still <3 the dress :)

Aritizia Talula Betsy Blouse XXS

Story behind the hat:
A couple of Valentines ago, my bf decided to take me to Goorin Brother in San Francisco. I was a little perplexed when we got there because it was a hat store. He said, "I think you'd look good in a hat, so I'd like to buy you one for Valentine." LOL! He's so random. Hats were never my thing, but I went along with it anyways and picked out a hat. I have never worn it the last 2 years I've had it, well not in public at least. I think it's a great prop for pics, don't you think?

Aritizia Talula Betsy Blouse. XXS. The blouse is lined.

American Eagle Ankle Jegging - Size 00R. Now on sale for $24.95 and lots of small sizes left! (also worn in this post)

I'm not a fan of indoor pics, but I had to do it. The weather had been terrible lately. It's raining today and probably will tomorrow too.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! :)
