Some interesting notes about my purchases (and gifts!) in January. Remember my red pants? Well, I never did get them tailored. Instead I replaced them with this pair from The Limited when they were on a crazy sale.

And while I was shopping online, I added those sequined pants to my cart. I figured for under $25, why not? Turns out they fit great and now I just need an excuse to wear them!

Also, I finally broke down and bought some camo print pants. I feel like such a sell out. I had to admit to myself that I couldn’t stop thinking about owning a pair even though I feel a bit conflicted about owning camo print when I have nothing to do with the military. What are your thoughts on camo?

When I visited my dad this month he offered to take me shopping. I took advantage of it and purchased a few staples that I’d been wanting. Specifically the Brooks Brothers no-iron shirt and those silver Sperrys. I was able to wear the shoes while in Florida but I need it to warm up a bit here in Chicago before I can really break them in!

Some interesting sizing notes: I bought both the red pants and the camo pants in tall/long lengths. I am 5’4″ but have a 30″ inseam. Both pants fit me much better in the longer length. Weird, right? Also, I bought the Sperrys almost a full size smaller than I normally wear! Apparently my feet are shrinking. Also weird.

    Every girl needs some crazy sequin pants in their closet — you never know when you’ll need them!

    I’ve always thought that Tall was the wrong terminology to use for pants, because it isn’t really a function of height. I’m 5’9″ but I am all torso, so I never need the extra length (and honestly, there are some Regular fit pants that I can only wear with heels). Always good to explore the different sizing options!

      Agreed about tall being the wrong terminology! It also seems to go in waves in terms of pant length. There was a period of time where I could buy regular length pants but now that ankle length is all the rage I have to go back to buying talls or longs.

      I did actually put together an outfit with them and took pictures because I planned to wear them to an event. But then I didn’t end up going! Now I’m thinking I’ll wear the outfit for Jason’s birthday dinner instead.
