Aritzia makes good pants, you guys. I feel like you`re probably getting sick of me waxing poetical on the topic, but it`s true. Here is another pair, slightly different from the other two (black) pairs of Aritzia pants I own, and it`s so good. Slouchy but still relatively slim cut, with a definite casual vibe thanks to the rolled hems and the drawstring waist. They`re fancy joggers basically … but they come with buttons and snaps, so I can totally wear these to the office as well. Right? You know I am going to try.
Meanwhile, with this chambray-esque top, these pants make for a nice off-duty outfit. Simple but polished. It`s the closest I get to feeling effortlessly chic. I always think outfits like these look better in person than in photos, so I guess you`ll have to take my word for it. Hmm, what else? Ah, yes: shoes and bag. The shoes are my fave AGL flats. Super comfy, would highly recommend; there are usually a few pairs floating around on eBay. I`m a loafer convert — I`m almost ready to give up all my high heels. Almost. But I do wear loafers most weekends. As for the bag, it`s my trusty MbMJ Mag bag. The colour is starting to fade which is making me sad; the leather is otherwise still in great shape; vintage Marc Jacobs leather was the best leather — soft and supple, with a nice weight to it. I may have to invest in some maroon leather polish and see what miracles I can create. If anyone has advice about rehabbing leather bags, let me have it — please and thank you.
