Fallback

Hi! I’m still alive! Between a work conference, workin’ on my fitness, and living through the grey days of winter, I haven’t even thought about wearing a cute outfit, let alone blogging about it. It’s no coincidence that today, the day I put on something nice, is the first sunny and warm day in Boston for a while.

I lusted after these bright pink J.Crew pants for months. By the time I got comfortable with the idea of paying full price, they were sold out everywhere. But now, they are mine and they were on sale and I loooove them. Figuring out what to pair them with was a bit tough, though. I decided to save my brain power for accessories and grabbed my fallback,  a button-down shirt. At what point does a piece of clothing go from being a “signature” piece to something you default to without making any real effort?

    The trousers look great on you!  I love the pink and lately, I just love everything J Crew puts out.  Hope you’re enjoying this gorgeous day!

    So glad you found them; what a great colour on you. I default to button down shirts too, and blouses. Nice neon work lady!

    Oooh, those pants! I think the button-down looks great, and you chose the perfect accessories.

    Love how you tied together the bright pants and classic button down with a tan leather belt.
