My first day at my new gig is formally on the books. Oh, and joke earlier than we get into the work pants. I put a long-wearing matte liquid lipstick on earlier than leaving the home (MAC Powder Kiss Liquid Lipcolour in A Little Tamed, one in all my faves), and within the rush to get out the door on time, I forgot to double test my enamel for any wayward lipstick ins and outs.
Two hours into my morning, I jump over to the lavatory, and that’s after I notice that I had a giant ol’ blob of lipstick smack dab on my entrance tooth, HA HA HA! I’d been smiling and saying good day to individuals all morning with lipstick on my enamel. Ahhh, serves me proper for speeding and never doing issues I do know I ought to’ve executed the evening earlier than.
Anywho, I’ve been wearing the Madewell work pants I purchased for my new job out within the area, and in case you had been contemplating them, these are my ideas on them up to now.
The Petite Good Classic Jean in Meyers Wash
I’m sporting this dark jean within the pic on the prime. Babe, it’s actually goooooood. So good I’d need one other pair.
It’s all concerning the match! I like the way it skims my hips and thighs but in addition there’s some looseness round these areas too, so that they aren’t pores and skin tight. If you pair it with a jacket, I believe it’s skilled sufficient for work. Oh, and because the day goes on, the denims stretch out a bit however not a lot that they’re hanging off your booty-meat by the top of the day.
The petite size hits me completely at simply above the ankle.
Shout out to this jacket!
The jacket, by the way in which, can also be from Madewell, and it’s the Rosedale Blazer in Plaid, and right meow it’s on sale! It’s often $198, however with the markdown and an additional 40% with the code NEWYEAR, it’s $89.99. Sadly the petite sizes are restricted, however in case you put on normal or plus, proper now there are nonetheless loads out there.
The reduce is roomy however not too outsized, and I just like the pockets! It’s additionally machine cleanable, which is a significant plus in my e-book, as this lady has no time or endurance for dry cleansing.
The Harlow Vast-Leg Pant
This wide leg trouser is available in so many various lengths and colours. I wore a darkish grey plaid model on my first day.
- Deep pockets that lie flat.
- The drape of this explicit materials could be very fluid and it strikes properly once you stroll.
- The plaid print hides a number of issues, together with cat hair and any meals you by accident spill on your self (good day, story of my life).
- The petite size is ideal with a small heel.
However, whereas I like a large leg, I really feel like this reduce could be only a smidge too broad. Additionally, the realm across the entrance has nearly an excessive amount of materials with all of the pleats, and after I sit down, it looks like there’s simply a lot happening within the crotch space. LOL! An excessive amount of info? In all probability.
Truthfully, it additionally could possibly be as a result of I used to be sporting a sweater with balloon sleeves that was additionally barely outsized, and the entire impact made me really feel like I used to be drowning in material… I dunno. I’m going to attempt these pants once more with a extra fitted prime and a slim jacket to see if that adjustments how I really feel about them.
Anywho, I’m actually liking the individuals and the job up to now. I’ve already used my writing and modifying abilities, which makes me really feel good. 🙂
