I have 3 confessions: 1) I hate this jacket, and I don't know why I still wear it. I bought it when I worked at Victoria's Secret in college because back in the day they required everyone to wear all black with a black blazer (but I noticed whenever I shop there now the sales associates just wear black tops or black cardigans, not fair!). It has never fit me, but at the time this was the smallest jacket that I could find so I got it out of desperation. I think it's time to say goodbye! 2) I didn't wear these pants today. 99% of the time I take pictures of real outfits that I wear, but today I just wore jeans to work with the rest of the outfit - I am debating whether to keep the pants because I thought they might be too tight, and I wanted to take some photos before I decided definitively...which leads me to confession 3 - 3) I photoshopped some wrinkles out of the crotch of these pants in the bottom picture - can you tell? This tells me these pants are probably too tight :( But then I look at the top picture and I don't think they look toooo bad. Do you think they are too tight? Be honest please!

  1. OMG! I tried on those pants too. I got horrible crotch wrinkles and they were too tight. IF I went up a size, I was swimming in them. Your crotch wrinkles are not nearly as bad as mine were though. I have a fat ass and there was no photoshopping them out, haha. I think the pants are just an awkward fit.

  4. I'm still debating whether to keep them - I'm thinking even if I can't wear them to work Mon-Thurs I could def get away with them on Fridays and it might be nice to have something other than short skirts and jeans to wear on weekends for a nice dinner....but then I think, "am I 50 years old?" The debate continues..lol

  11. They don't look too tight, but I think the real answer is how did they feel at the end of the day? I keep buying Loft cropped pants in a size that feels comfortable at the beginning of the day, and wishing I'd bought a size smaller because of the stretching that occurs at work, especially from sitting so much. These are really lovely in these pics.
