My first pair of ‘grown-up’ pants

This month marks a big milestone in my closet. For almost the last decade, the only pants purchases I’ve made are skinny jeans, leggings, or Dress Pant Yoga Pants. Because I’ve been working at companies that have allowed employees to wear jeans (or even leggings as pants) in such casual environments, I’ve never really had a practical or functional reason to own any other types of pants. But here we are today; Making a post about “big girl” pants… aka trousers.

outfit details:
crop top: Parallel Lines via ASOS
cropped moto jacket: MISSGUIDED (similar)
high waisted cropped trousers: Zara (exact in nude pink)
leather booties: All Saints (similar)
Coach Dinky crossbody purse: c/o Coach (exact)

I still don’t have a reason to own “grown-up” pants, but there’s something about pressed seams that makes me feel fancy in these pants. The extra bonus is the fact that the back waistband is elastic, which gives the illusion of professional-looking pants from the front while still providing the stretch to make these the perfect all-you-can-eat-buffet pants. ;)
