I did not see anything at J Crew for a reasonable price and frankly, the bennet chinos I bought last winter are not the right cut for me. So off I headed to my new online casual spot - Gap!
And then I saw them across a crowded room. Well - okay, technically, I was in my bedroom at home in my pyjamas, but you get the idea:
The broken in straight chinos in electric fuschia, which you can buy here.
I know - I got a pink corduroy jacket. Do not worry, dear friends, these will never be seen together!
And electric is not the right word. I prefer bright. fun.
In real life, they are not that pink and I got them on a 40% off sale so they were something like $35 CDN.
This was me on Sunday. I am wearing a Theory tshirt which I got on sale in Spring and now realize, as I look at this picture, that it is completely unflattering! I am also wearing a nice wool scarf and my Lulu ballets. I had a plain jean jacket that I wore to go out downtown to hear the last of the music festival. I got compliments, but they could have been in the "what the heck are you wearing - whoops, those are nice..." kind of compliments. I don't care. I like these and they are very comfortable! I am pretty sure I will order a pair of the regular chinos next sale, now that I know my size, but I simply could not resist these. I bought them in a size 8 but would easily have worn a 6. I chose the 8 as I wanted total comfort!
This a.m. was no Katherine Hepburn day, it was more of a Rynetta day, which I was very content to be...
Have a great day!
