The smart pants edit

These were my first pair of proper professional pants. Super nice fitted wide leg trousers. So chic and so comfy. I got them a little over 10 years ago for my first office job after uni and they were just perfect. The neutral color made it easy for me to mix and match it to many items in my wardrobe. I haven’t worn them a lot since I went into the fashion industry, because jeans were always a better option for me. Until today! I decided to get them out and wear them for a cool Monday office look. Worst decision ever!! I am so sad because now, they are trash. I fell going to work this morning and now they have a huge hole in the knee area. I mean, I am a DIY queen, so they’re not going to trash just yet…I will end up turning them into much cooler culottes now. Or maybe cool shorts…who knows! I’ll keep you guys posted.

So here’s what I ended up pairing my Laura Petites trousers with:


PANTS: Laura Petites trousers ◊  SHIRT: Thrifted H&M  ◊ VEST: Forever 21 Cropped top ◊ SHOES: Calvin Klein thrifted

I am so saddened that I don’t to pass these trousers to my daughter or my nieces or something. I wanted to keep them as much as I could and I guess today was the day I had to say goodbye to the pants and hello to a very badly bruised knee.


This look reminds me of those days in my last year of high school where I would always dress smart and add a tie on top of that! Haha! I was so ready to go to college, I even got the tie going. I always in my heart believed I was meant to be a boss lady! A true hard-working, sassy, awesome, killer business woman. I always had that fire in me and this outfits take me back to those times.

It also kindda reminds me of Cher Horowitz from Clueless…Can you tell this movie marked me or what?
