It's A Pants Party...

Worn to work Tuesday, August 30

I wore pants...again...two days in a row is a record for me...but please do not get used to it!



 Pants-Loft/Jacket-Gap/Shoes-Eric Michael/Jewelry-Shopbop, Target, H&M

This outfit came together fairly easy this morning.  Besides yesterdays pants, these are the only other pants I feel comfortable in..pleated ankle length silk pants I love...never thought I would say that!  I bout this jacket over the weekend at Gap.  Love it!! Light tweed pattern, pockets, leather trim, zipper...$22...wonderful.  It was on sale, then an additional 40% off so it had to be mine!
I feel pretty good in this outfit today...I think that when I am dressed professionally and have on some fun jewelry, I feel my best.  It also helps that it is not real hot out, so I am finally comfortable.


So, I asked Jack if I could take his photo when we got to school today.  He said yes, as long as I can stand by the Alien and set up my backpack for the photo...ok then!

 He insists on wearing a car shirt almost every day...good thing for the laundry we have a dozen of them.


They line up by the doors and wait for the teachers to come out.  Jack cannot remember his friends names, but then he introduced me a a little girl today as his new friend and they went off to line up together...so cute!
I definitely think Alex is getting bored.  As I was leaving today, he told me is friend was coming over and bringing him some juice...I was confused since he did not have a play date.  I discovered he has been telling Jack, my husband and I that every morning his friend is coming over...each day bringing something different.  I guess he really does miss Jack and looking for someone new to play with...school can definitely not start soon enough.

I'm sure it's really hard for kids when an older sibling goes to school. It'll balance out once he starts though.

Those pants look fantastic on you, I love the gray and purple together! I'd wear pants more often if I was allowed to wear ankle pants at work.

Poor Jack. i hope he gets used to his new schedule soon. It must be tough to have his brother busy with school.

I always love your jewelry...I think I need that bracelet!!!

Awww, poor Alex. Hopefully he'll get used to his brother being gone at school, but it's not the worst thing if he lets his imagination go a little :)

That jacket is such a steal! And I'm with you on this weather being so nice and comfortable. I definitely don't miss the sweltering days of summer.

You both look adorable :) That jacket looks like a great find--I'm sure you'll love having it in the fall!

You look great in those pants. And YAY for not being so hot out. We have been exceedingly lucky lately to NOT have too much heat.
