Faux Slacks

You guys may have noticed this outfit in yesterday's bloopers, but here are the slightly-more-normal-facial-expression versions. I'm working on removing jeans from my M-Th workwear, and so far so good. With the addition of a couple of dresses, and another pair of slacks, I think I won't have trouble at all - right now I still cheat a bit by reaching for my black jeans or my olive green jeans, but I'm close to not needing them anymore. Friday is going to be the best day, though, with so many options that rarely get worn to the office. 

These pants are from The Limited - I don't have one close, but I took Fran's advice and ordered a pair online, and they are amazing. These are their Styled Ponte Knit Leggings, which are sold out online right now. They are super similar to these ones, though. They are some of my favorites because they are an elastic waist, but they still have real back pockets, faux front pockets and a faux front zip, and they aren't super tight at my ankles, so I feel like they look more like ankle slacks and less like leggings. I highly recommend giving a pair like this a try!

I asked Fran on Twitter a few days ago, but I'd love your help too: where do you buy pants for work?? Link me some favorites in the comments if you are feeling generous!! 

There's just a day or two left to link up your Fall Favorite as a part of Third Thursday Threads, so get over there and do it!
