IMGP3153 IMGP3147 IMGP3144

top outfit: James Jeans cords, LL Bean striped breton shirt, thrifted denim jacket, Topshop fur gilet, Madewell scarf, vintage ring, Timex watch. Second outfit: James Jeans cords, J. Crew wool long-sleeved shirt, T by Alexander Wang sweater, scarf from India, UO booties

Or make that triple, quadruple duty. I just knew I had a skinny corduroy-shaped hole in my closet, and the recent acquisition of this pair (followed by wearing them for a week straight) really drove the point home. Found them on Gilt Groupe after exhausting myself in the search for cheaper possibilities. They have fake front pockets (yuck) but other than that are nearly perfect. And comfy as a pair of leggings, minus the camel toe.

Also, just had to share the perfect Valentine's day card from my boyfriend. If you know us, you know how apt this card is. If you don't, let me assure you, it is very apt.


  1. That card made me smile! You look very awesome. :)

  2. those are great pants and both outfits are really cute (esp the top). in the first pics, is your hair purple? the color looks awesome!

    1. Um, no I wish. This is what happens when I fuck with the white balance of my camera. My hair is sadly, very brown.

  3. Love those cords and that card even more!!! So cute!!!

  4. Ewww fockets? Fake pockets? Well, I could think of way worse things. Maternity jeans? Oh yeah. Enjoy your cords. I'll be rocking leggings fora lonnng time. I'm with child. Lucky kid, lucky kid.

  5. Ahhh those pants are awesome. Currently obsessed with everything but blue jeans!!
