Sometimes you just get tired of jeans

Office Appropriate Outfits - Spring

Sometimes I just get tired of wearing jeans. Does that happen to you? Or is it just me? Anyway, last week I had one of my professional association meetings and I decided that was a good enough excuse to wear my new red pants.

These are the pants I bought to replace my previous red pair that got ridiculously large in the waist and that I felt never hit me quite right at the ankle. I bought these ankle pants in a Tall so that they actually came to my ankle bone and didn’t end just at the bottom of my calf. To me, that is NOT an ankle pant when they have such a short inseam.

Short girl with long legs problems, I guess.

Anyway, when I was at the office I just ditched the blazer so I didn’t look as dressed up. Thankfully, no one says anything to me. In fact, my boss actually asked my opinion on a t-shirt he was designing for our team since he says “I’m the one with the fashion knowledge.”

Maybe I shouldn’t have showed him that Crain’s article.

    I like the look! And you can’t just leave the dressier clothes in the closet, sometimes you have to let them come out and play too!

    I don’t know if I’ve ever really gotten tired of jeans BUT when I get new clothes I generally want to wear them as soon and as often as possible, so I think that’s as good of a reason as any to wear something other than jeans. And good heavens, when early March gives you ankle pants appropriate weather, it’d be a shame to pass that by 🙂

    VERY cute!! Am envious that you can wear flats and REAL shoe, instead of the mandatory boots here………….probably for the next month or two. LOL

    YES, I TOTALLY get tired of wearing jeans. It feels like black pants or khakis are the only other casual-pants options, too. Yawn, right? Love this outfit with the contrast of black and white against the red!
