Well, it feels like the last weekend of the summer is here – cue the tears now!! I’ve spent the last few days trying to psyche myself up for returning to work after a month of vacation…..but it’s not working very well. So, to combat the back to work blues, I shopped.
BUT….I didn’t spend much money! Small win in the greater battle with my credit card.
I found the skinny pants pictured above at H&M on Friday for $19.99. I love a good skinny pant, mostly because they do what a good legging does without actually being a legging. They look fantastic with blazers, long sweaters, and loose t-shirts on top, and pair well with boots, booties, flats and stiletto heels (not that I’ll be wearing the latter – see my last post). These pants have great stretch, come in a ton of colours and of course, are priced ridiculously well. I thought the ones pictured above were a deep teal green in the store but when I got them home, turns out they are more navy blue than green; however, at that price, I really wasn’t bothered. There is an olive green pair as well and I may have to go back and pick those ones up, since olive is a colour I am really loving for fall. As with so many H&M pieces, these run quite small, so I do recommend sizing up to be comfortable, though they will definitely stretch a bit.
I love skinny pants with plaid shirts and tunics and can’t wait to pair these ones with a couple that I recently picked up at Zara. Last evening, I went with a simple white t-shirt, my favourite summer blanket scarf, and comfortable booties to complete my look for enjoying Symphony Under the Sky at Hawrelak Park with friends. (And special thanks to my friend Katherine for being an enthusiastic and patient photographer while we waited for the show to start!)
And now, time to enjoy the last few hours of relaxation before the back to work rush begins again.
Enjoy the pretty things in life,
