Pink Anorak / Navy Skinny Fit Sloan Pant / White Ruffle T / Classic Handbag / Sneakers

If you’ve been a reader of The Lush List for any amount of time, you know I’m partial to dresses.  I always have been.  My mother says I used to pitch a huge fit if I had to wear pants as a little girl.  Well, it’s probably because they weren’t comfortable or stylish.  Today, I’m sharing the Sloan pant from Banana Republic two ways.  A pair that probably would have changed that stress for all for me so long ago. (wink, wink)

When you are petite, finding a great fitting pair of pants is not easy.  I love that the Sloan, and most other BR pants, come in petite and also tall, making the cut of the hips, knees and hem perfect.  I am 5’2″ and wearing a petite 0 here.

The first look is one that I wore Thursday right after this shoot to a nonprofit committee meeting, then to lunch and finally to a client dinner with my husband.  These pants were so comfortable because of the built-in stretch but also held their shape all day.  I got several compliments on them and best of all from my uber fashionable BFF!  That’s saying something!

The boucle military jacket is a fun cut and will be great with jeans as well.  I love the fringe detail on the sleeveless top.  It also comes in white and is such a great staple for your wardrobe in both colors.  I have the detail shown for you in the LikeToKnow.It app.  If you don’t have this app, you need to get it!  It is a great way to shop and get details on all my looks.  Let me know if you have questions about it.

The second look here is an every day way to wear these classic skinny fit pants.  I’d wear this running errands and to school meetings when I want to look good but feel comfortable as well.  And how cute is the pink anorak!?!?  All three of my girls are eyeing it, too.  It is water-resistant and great for a cool spring day and the showers that lie ahead for all those gorgeous blooms.  This soft, ruffled T is under $40, has a fun back detail and hits at a perfect length.
