My mom ordered these pants on final sale from Zara — always a gamble — and when they didn’t work for her, she passed them along to me. They’re a smidgen too big, but I’m not mad at the extra room; especially on a Monday when I basically want to wear pajamas to work.

If you like your daytime PJs fancy, I love this black silk style from Rebecca Minkoff. ;)

#OOTD: Pleather Details

I bought this Jack by BB Dakota tee last fall when faux leather sleeves were the thing. Joe Fresh has a cute version for $29 that I’d like to snag in olive, and Forever 21 has a sleeveless style under $20.  I’m wearing mine with my old faithful hi-rise skinny jeggings (which are cut straight through the hips, so size up if you’re curvy) and the nude flip flops that we’re all tired of by now but I just can’t quit.

#OOTD: Drapey Drawstring Pants

2015 is the Year of the Pajama Pant for me. In an effort to break out of my skinny jean rut, I started to hoard drawstring pants, and basically traded one comfort zone for another. Hashtag no regrets.

J.Crew has the best ‘drapey’ drawstring pants and dressy joggers in substantial fabrics with flattering cuts that easily go from work to weekend. I’m waiting for these slouchy wool pants to go on sale so I can snag them for winter.

Sidebar: Did you know you can sign up for sale alerts through ShopStyle? They send you an email (or push notification if you have the iOS app) as soon as the retailer discounts the item, saving you the hassle of constantly checking back or catching the sale too late when everything is sold out. It’s one of my favorite tools for shopping on a budget.
