march 13th {neglected pants}

gap outlet slacks {thrifted}   ·   merona sweater {thrifted}
j crew blouse {thrifted}   ·   predictions karmen heels

if you've been hanging around here with me for a while, you might pick out today's no longer neglected item immediately.  PANTS!  as all of my pants are sadly neglected.  i'm not even sure why that is - i wore them maybe once a week in 2012, but it feels like it's been ages since i've pulled on a proper pair of dress slacks.  i'm glad i made it a point to do so today for this challenge.  there is something about a well-fitting pair of slacks that make me stand a little taller and feel a more professional.  and it felt good to pull out a pair of heels that have also been neglected all winter!

this outfit came together pretty easily too as i was inspired by one of bri's recent outfits and paired a printed blouse with a solid cardigan, leaving the bottom hem of the blouse to peak out.  i really liked the effect and that the higher neckline of the printed blouse peaked out over the neckline of the sweater, too.

how do you feel about dress slacks?
