I am between a 14 and a 16 in these pants. Some days, the 14 fits like a dream, other days it's a bit snug and I feel more comfortable in the 16. Think it's all about how comfy I want to be and how much sodium or caffeine was consumed the day prior. These are the 16s which you can see look a bit slouchy/lumpy. Had another tough night with Emerson so I wasn't feeling like fitted trousers today or anything that required work or restriction.

I am also between petite and regular – the petites are fine until they are washed. I had this happen with a black pair and a khaki linen-blend pair thought it was because they went in the dryer. Nope – the white ones were air dried and still shrunk up a good half inch. So now I have a collection of too-short chinos. Fab. These are the regular length and I hemmed them myself the same amount as the hem (so could easily be dropped back down if they too shrunk in the wash). It's frustrating because my goal was to have the petites for flat shoes and the regulars for shoes with heels. Oh well, that's what you get for clearance trousers…

FYI: The lovely Boutique Girl is offering a very fun giveaway at her site – Things a Boutique Owner Sees. Head on over there and enter – you may win one of three pieces of jewelery. Contest ends this Friday. If one of you wins, you will HAVE to let me know! πŸ™‚

  1. Ah, I hate being directly in between sizes. Since my weight fluctuates a lot (frowny face) I’ve sometimes been stuck at a plateau where no pants fit unless I either gain or lose 10 pounds. Finding a flattering, well-fitting pair of pants is my LEAST favorite shopping activity.

    But you look lovely, colorful, and cheery – not at all like you had a rough night. Hope that the next few go better.

  2. I know you mentioned returning the cardigan but I think you should keep it. It’s a great color on you. Weren’t these your wedding colors?

  3. Love you style and how put together you always look!! Are the Gap trousers still for sale? I think we have similar body types and I would love to try these on!!
    Thanks πŸ™‚

  4. Yahooooo! I am SO tickled pink to see the hot pink/orange combo… it’s been so hot this year and I’ve loved loved LOVED it but I’ve been sort of afraid it belonged in the “Pretty and interesting but too trendy to be worn by anyone not a pop star” category. I feel like I’ve got “permission” to go with it now! πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  5. Ugh, I hate pant shopping for that very reason and have been dress obsessed this year. I love the new hair, BTW!
