Work Clothes: Power Pants

If you've been reading this blog a while, you know I love my purple-ish ponte pants (see them and other colored slacks here). My engineer and I have come to call them my power pants, because I tend to reach for them when I'm stressed about work - somehow the outfit always comes together easier and makes me feel more confident when it starts with a purple ponte pant base.

As soon as I saw this maternity version, I knew I had to make them mine so that I don't have to skip that easy feeling when I'm pregnant. Here's how I wore them last week:

Pants: Old Navy
Sweater: LOFT (similar)
Booties: similar - love these ones!

These pants currently drive me crazy - they really don't stay up and so if I'm doing any bit of walking around, they get pretty saggy in the butt. But for a day at the office with minimal walking, they work just fine. I just won't be wearing them for any travel days anytime soon!

And of course, how I wore it most of the day when I was out & about: with a giant coat (which I got at Costco last year) on top because it has been chilly here!

Speaking of the cold, since Seattle has been experiencing a colder winter than usual (which I know is still not as bad as where half of you likely live!), I'll be sharing some of my favorite winter remedies and treats next week! Stay tuned :)
