Wednesday's Wardrobe: Pants a Plenty

With such a great weekend under my belt, you must be wondering what I wore to all those fantastic NYC events?  Um...clothes, duh.  Honestly, I didn't take pictures of two of the good outfits, but that's how the cookie apple crumbles crunches in New York City?

Saturday was a two outfit day, as most Saturdays are for me these days.  During the day I needed cozy, comfortable duds for walking all over the city.  I pulled this simple tee, sweater vest, bootcut jeans and my disco flats together for our trek.

T-Shirt - Ann Taylor Loft, Sweater/Jeans - Old Navy, Ballet Flats - Gap, Bracelets - Target, Earrings - Craft Fair, Sunnies - Cole Haan, Purse - Foley and Corrina via eBay

Not pregant here, just too much Carnegie Deli! 
All was going well on set until I got photo-bombed by my sister in law!




Post 13,353,453 mile walk we huffed it back to the hotel to get gussied up for dinner at Le Bernardin.  While I almost always default to a dress in these situations, I really wanted to wear pants that night.  I pulled these shiny skinnies on, added a sequined grey top and lace blazer and away we went.  Three courses into the four course meal I remembered why I wear dresses to big dinners - no waistbands to squeeze your full tummy!



I wore a jumper! on Sunday but there were no pictures cause I looked busted from my cold. Oddly enough, I have pictures from Monday when I felt even more busted. This sweater was perfect for feeling feverish.  Wool blend for the chills, and lacy breathable front for those hot, fevery moments.  I picked up these Frye shoes at Bloomingdales this weekend.  I love them, I will need to get better pictures of their beauty and height soon!  Please disregard the Viking hats in our hallway...we earned them in a mud run this summer.
Sweater- Ann Taylor Loft, Tank - H&M, Pants - Old Navy, Shoes - Frye, Bag - Gift via Target, Black Pearls - Gifts from the 'Rents.

Note: These pants are not high waters, I promise.  I just hiked them up so you could see the shoes. You're welcome :)

Happy Thursday peeps, we're almost to the weekend!

I have a crush on your Foley & Corinna bag and those Frye shoes. That's the danger of blogging - I eBay everything I like on other bloggers (because you know you make it look good).

I would very much appreciate your reading list (I need new books and have read and reread all the classics). I'll send you an email shortly.

BTW, have you ever heard of The Name of the Rose? One of the best books I've read in a while so I highly recommend.

Hee hee, I'm usually the one photobombing people's pictures. Your hair is looking so pretty. I learned that trick about wearing a dress or elastic-waist pants to a big dinner--you need room to expand! :)
