Girl Friday

I finally upgraded the worn-out pair of black pants I've had since about 1998, with a very similar pair from the exact same store. My 12-year-old pair was an awkward length and the fabric was starting to fray, so it was about time to replace them.

Girl Friday

And what better to complement classic black pants than a striped shirt, leather bag, and black flats (and, of course, the blog staple: a brick wall)?

The pants are really cute and flattering. Are they from the new black pant collection Gap's put out? I need a new pair for work and have been tempted to go check them out.

Brick walls always make for good blog photos.

Those pants are super flattering on you. I like the length.

I love those pants! And brick walls do make fantastic backdrops!

I think the Virginia Woolf lover in you will appreciate the giveaway we're having over at Fashionable Academics. Have a good holiday weekend!

Oh, I like the grey tee underneath the stripes! That looks snazzy. And I can only dream about the day when it will be cool enough to wear pants again...

Aren't they great? I cuffed mine pretty severely, but I prefer yours without. Cute!

Beautiful outfit! I would have never imagined those other pants were 12 yrs old. They didn't look that bad. At least not in pictures.
