"Red pants again?" Christopher said dubiously when I came out of the bedroom this morning. Yes, Christopher, red pants again. These have such high lycra content they are basically red pajamas and secretly it is my goal to feel like I am wearing pajamas while still looking presentable. To non sequitor: are long sweaters still cool? Last fall it felt like no wardrobe was complete without one, but this fall I feel suddenly perplexed about how I am supposed to wear them. But pairing them with my red pajamas pants seems like a place to start.

I hope long sweaters are still cool. And if not, that's okay. I'm kind of obsessed with them lately -- they're so comfy for work.

Annika said...

I sure hope they are! Because I plan on rocking my long sweaters all winter long! It really is the perfect sit in the library and cram for test accessory!


A Sweet Release

I sure hope they are still cool! They are my favsies!

Whitney said...

They'd better still be cool! I live in mine - they're kinda my uniform: skinny jeans, colorful shirt, long cardigan, boots.

If that formula goes out of style, I'm toast.

If long sweaters are out, I don't want to be in.

LyddieGal said...

I agree - I've got those pants too and I have a feeling they will be a wardrobe staple this fall.

And i'm pretty sure long sweaters are still cool. I'll still be wearing them anyway!

Loren said...

I can never seem to figure out what to wear long cardigans with. I think this is pretty cute actually! I think I need more not pajama pants in my wardrobe.

Brittany Rossman said...

Just wore mine yesterday!! I think my husband had the same reaction. I love long sweaters =) I hope they didn't go out of style.

Ki said...

I cannot stop wearing my red pants either! I'm sure my blog readers are tired of them already! :P

I love the long sweater :)

Wren said...

My current wardrobe staple is a thrifted red skirt and I'm looking forward to picking out a pair of red pants too!

I love your red pants! I have a pair myself. I think they are the most enjoyable part of my closet even though I don't wear them that often. I just love their color. And, hey, Christopher shouldn't be down on the "power pants."

Two other things:
1. I enjoy your boots. I had to get rid of my brown pair after last winter because of the number of holes in them. :(
2. I really really like your shirt. I'm sure I can find something similar to thrift.
3. Your hair is very sleek.
4. I think I may get a library card today, as I have relocated.
5. I can't count worth a crap.

If long sweaters aren't cool, then neither am I!

Just wore the same sweater with my red jeans last week. My boss told me I was the most stylish person in the office. Granted that's like being called the skinniest person at far camp, but I took it.

Red pants make any dreary day seem brighter. Welcome to DC's gray days.

If long sweaters are no longer cool, I don't have anything to wear! But I understand your puzzlement--I think it's part of the seasonal confusion of switching to warm clothes. Layering always feels a bit funny until I get used to the shapes again.

And have we seen your hair in a high ponytail before? I don't think so--high buns, yes. Anyway, it looks fabulous. Polished and effortless and fun.

Adorable blouse. Love it with those pants, which I can't get enough of, by the way!

I hope long sweaters are still cool! Cause I have about a billion of them and they are my go-to when I'm feeling lazy.

I'm all for pajama-esque pants. In fact, I'm wearing some today. I'm pretty sure you could call these leggings, but they have pockets and a zipper, so that makes them pants, right??

rebecca said...

You rock those red pajamas. I love seeing all the different outfits you can put together with those guys. You look fabulous every time. I especially love your blouse! Adds such a lovely touch.

They still sell long sweaters at J.Crew AND Madewell, so you know they are still in.

Rachelle said...

this outfit is adorable! love it. and i have that sweater in a purple color and i love mine and am wearing it this fall too.

Bri said...

Oh, I wish I was wearing stretchy jeans like that today. I need to buy five more pairs so I can wear them every day.

Law Mama said...

I think we all need more pants that are pajamas in disguise. I think that's why I wear leggings so often - there like yoga pants but dressed up.

Katie said...

If long sweaters are wrong, then I don't wanna be right!!

Hope no one else has said that! Loving everything about this outfit- especially this mixing of neutrals!!

If I had red pj pants, I think I would wear them all the time too. Really cute look.

Hannah said...

If long sweaters aren't in, I'm just going to have to break that rule. I'm going to wear mine regardless. Your outfit is so cute, and I don't think I'll get tired of "the red pants."
