A few weeks ago, Elle posted that Banana Republic was having a 40% off everything sale which was stackable with individual 25% off coupons for new email subscribers. I already was an email subscriber but was not above registering my blog email to get the extra % off, as I had been waiting for a good sale like this to buy another pair of Sloan pants. I wear my khaki pair from last year pretty often - see them here and here. Unfortunately, there were no 00P in the colors I was hoping to try, specifically black and the Porch Green color below. I ended up ordering 00R, 0R and 0P to try. All were "meh". I was hoping the regular sizes would add some length, and they did, but they weren't ankle pants anymore which defeated the purpose. When I went into the store to return my package, I saw the green in 00P and had to try them on. They were the best fit of the bunch. The manager even said she would adjust the price to match the online price I paid (about $40) but "just this once" - yea.. ok we'll see about that, lol. Anyway, I didn't have a chance to wear the pants to work yet but I did wear them on Saturday to brunch at a sort of hidden place called Peacock Garden Cafe in Coconut Grove. I probably could have worn this to work with a jacket and heels though...on a non-court day :)

I like that they sit pretty flat from the front. Some extra material in the rear but unfortunately I'm going to have that problem with most pants as I have nothing back there. They fit me pretty sung across the thighs and hips but were loose from the knee down.
The pants are labeled BR's "sexiest fit" which doesn't really go along with office attire. However, I think the thicker material, the loose fit from the knee down, and the fact that I would wear these with a blazer which covers most of my butt makes them office appropriate. Also the darker color as opposed to a bright red or something.
PS - I followed THIS tutorial to do my hair. I think hers looks way better... but I'm trying new things instead of the same old boring straight or curled hair so at least there's that!
