Track pants




Earrings: Target (option) | Necklace: NY&Co (option) | Sweater: Express (option, option) | Track pants: Express (option)  | Heels: Michael by Michael Kors

Can you guys tell I've been experimenting in different parts of the house with the tripod? Just trying to find spots that work inside when I can't take outside pics. I decided to do today's look in my closet room. Even though these views here and here are my favorite, the spot I'm standing in these photos is where I spend the majority of my time when I'm in my closet room - whether it's using my mirror or picking out jewelry.

As far as this outfit - I've been digging the track pants look, what can I say? I thought it would be perfect for a casual Friday. I don't know why but the gathered ankle on the pants makes all the difference in the world to me vs something like this:


...which I feel can make me look stumpy, perhaps that's just me. Definitely a bit on the trendy side, and since I decided to go with the animal print sweater and zipper back heels, I kept the accessorizing to a minimum. Call me crazy, but I kinda love these pants. A lot.

  4. Heyyyy...we have the same Little Black Dress jewelry organizer! Will the coincidences never end?! I just had to expand to a second one because I was doubling up all my necklaces on the first one. Especially since I decided to become an equal opportunity metal employer and wear both gold AND silver. OK, I'll stop now. :)

    1. Haha focus on the outfit, woman! Just kidding, I am happy to be twinsies with you in every way. I have 3 ways to store jewelry and I wonder at what point is it excessive??!

  6. Such a cute look! I love that sweater. I bought a pair of pants like those a few months ago and I still haven't been brave enough to wear them. I'm such a wimp. :) They look awesome on you!

  7. Love the pants! I am a big fan of this style too. I don't think you look stumpy at all and the v on the sweater enhances your silhouette.

  8. You're closet is beautiful! I love the track pant trend, but it's not my usual style at all, so I'm still trying to find the perfect pair that's not going cost an arm and a leg. I definitely agree, gathered track pants are more flattering, I think it's because the gathering helps to create a slimmer line around the ankles.

    1. I was able to score these during their 40% off sale, and I'm glad I did! Even if they had to sit in my closet room for a few weeks!

  9. I really really love to comment on your outfit, but I'm still trying to get over your closet room! I showed my housemates and they both said WOW. I need a closet room like that in my life.

    1. It's both a blessing and a curse to have this room! But I do love having my own space!
      Thanks for the nice note!

  10. I'm not sure I'd wear those pants myself--but I believe you should wear what YOU like. Hey, I still wear flared jeans even though I know they aren't in favor these days. :P I love your dainty necklace!

    1. Oh yes, they definitely are one of the more 'controversial' pieces in my wardrobe - I'm still not honestly sure why i love them so much, but you're right, I do like them a lot and feel great in them!
      And I've got nothing against a good pair of flares!

  11. I also love the gathered ankle, I think it brings the shoe out and gives the pant a better finishing touch.

    1. Hahaha! This made me smile! And some would say I'm crazy so thanks for not judging!! I also want to add that my husband had a 3 car garage so this was my trade off to that!

  15. Yes, this definitely is a great casual Friday outfit and once again you look great. I need to find a good spot in the house for my pics, even though I enjoy being outdoors and yes, even in the cold and snow - lol. Thanks for sharing and linking up again this weekend at the #WWDParty. Have a fantastic weekend.

      And yes, indoor spots are definitely hard. I'm not sure I'm satisfied with my locations this weekend, but it's fun to experiment!
