The Same Brown Pants with Pretty Tops & Cardigans.

Hi Girlies. I just finished posting a questionnaire type of post for FRIEND FRIDAY. I have found these Blog Questions online, so I have decided to answer some of them weekly, on Fridays. Every week there is a new topic that is always somehow connected to a Blog, styles of writing a blog, outfits, fashion, style, etc. I feel so accomplished today as I had my regular work day, came home, made myself something to eat, did a ton of packing so we can be ready tomorrow for our movers. They will be by my door at 9.00 AM sharp. I plan on being up by 7.00 AM since I still have to empty away some cupboards and drawers in my kitchen as well as unpack my bathroom. But rather than that, everything is put away in boxes, bags and luggage. And I will be honest about it you guys: it didn't take me long at all. I guess packing and unpacking a gazillion times, before I made my move from US has its advantages. I wasn't so OCD about packing this time as everything will get unpacked within the next two weeks so no big deal. As long as we don't forget anything and we don't pack any unnecessary junk. So all this packing business was a piece of cake. However I am sure it will take much longer, much more detailing and analyzing everything as I unpack them and put everything where it belongs, once we are at our new home.

So that's new on my front and in my life. But anyway, this is an outfit post and I present you not one but two outfits, that I have worn to work sometime this Winter. These brown pants from The Limited are my most favorite and most-worn dressy pants (for work) from this past Winter. The material is some type of blended cotton, a little textured, thick enough but not too thick, not itchy, in a flare style towards the bottom. Actually they are not that plain either since they feature pinstripes (brown on brown) so that gives these pants some texture and pattern. I actually love pants from The Limited. They have been known for their pants for at least a decade and a half or so. So if you have never shopped for their pants, I suggest you try them out. "Drew" (like this pair) is their most popular style and the one that flatters most bodies. But I also own some "Cassidy" and some "Lexie" ones. Just give them a try! =)

  1. Love these two outfits! The lace and layers in the first are so pretty, and that leopard print and red are smokin' together! Congrats on your move ... I'll have to write you for some tips as I've got one coming up this summer!

    1. Thanks for the compliments Bonnie. I can always count on The Limited for super cute tops and shells to wear under my cardigans. And as I mentioned they have GREAT PANTS, too.

      I am happy to share what I know with you, when it comes to packing and unpacking. =)

      Have a Great Weekend!!

  2. These are both great! Coveting that leopard cardi. I LOVE The Limited for dress pants - most of my dress trousers are Cassidys; I have had some for four years now. I have found some at TJ Maxx/Marshalls for like $15 a pair. I also love that taupe lace top; so pretty! Good luck with the move!

  3. Your taupe top on the first outfit is gorgeous but your second look is my favorite. Black, white and red always make you look pulled together, trendy and ready for anything -

    1. I like the taupe top too and should have gotten another one like it in a different color. But I agree one can never go wrong with Black, White & Red!!
