Hello, welcome to another blog post of my fashion style and choices. This time I am wearing work attire. This year I have been introduced to Lane Bryant’s Allie style work pant and I just love the Allies. They are great for me and my work because: one, they are comfortable in the band and waist; two, they fit my hourglass figure and big butt; three, they are wrinkle-free and I can fold them up and not have to worry about ironing them the next day. So far, I’ve worn the skinny ankle, straight leg, but just this last month I fell in love with the Wide Leg Allie pant.
Trust me I am not a fan of boot cut pants and jeans, with my short little legs and body type they make my legs look wider and puffier than they really are. I look like I’m swimming in boot cut jeans. But with the wide leg, I do not have that problem. I just love the way they move when I walk. It just gives me just a cool touch and flares to my work wardrobe. I just added a small healed boot so they do not drag in the ground. But if you are shorter than me, they do come in short and long length, too.
I picked out these hound’s tooth, checkered pants because they go with pretty much everything. I added a black blouse and a thin wrap trench coat for the cool weather we’ve been having here in South Jersey. Now the black blouse I bought back at the beginning of fall and then it went on sale at lanebryant.com and it sold out within a week or two. But rumor has it that the company will bring out new versions of this same blouse, so do keep an eye out on the website for this.
As of right now, the fall weather is winding down here in South Jersey, we just got our first snowfall this week. So winter is here and it is going to be a snowy year for us here on the east coast, well that is the rumor. So I am trying to think of winter ideas for you all. I’ve been super busy these past few weeks and with the sun going down around 3pm it’s been super hard for me to shoot some photos for you all. Do enjoy yourselves this winter, and do keep warm.
Love you all,
Valerie (a.k.a Jersey Girl)
