You Picked 'Em, I Wear 'Em

Thank You to all of you who assisted me in selecting my new pair of Ann Taylor pants! As I wrote last week, Ann's new line of pants is pretty fabulous, coming in a wide variety of styles and cuts - when the good folks there offered me a pair, I simply could not decide between the relaxed crop, the modern trouser and the wide leg. You spoke, I listened, and a new pair of pants now sits in my wardrobe! Drumroll, please....

Okay, well, you can see the photos, so the winner is no surprise - you voted for the relaxed crop! The vote was very close - only one vote separated the winner from the runner up, which was the wide leg pant. I have to admit, the relaxed crops are kicky and cute, but the wide leg pants made me look long and lean, which is pretty tough to do on someone who is 5'2" - I may have to go back for them, too!

I will say that the wide leg pants are difficult to find in a petite size - I called several stores who didn't have the size I need. And I'm disappointed that the relaxed crop pants are unlined (the other styles had a smooth, soft lining) and don't seem to come in petite at all. But overall, both pairs are stylish, well-constructed and easy to wear. I'm looking forward to these cropped pants as a wonderful autumn transition piece - they look good with sandals, pumps and ankle boots. They're a fun shape: tailored, but loose, and they work well with flowy blouses, tees, tight sweaters and structured jackets. Thank you, readers, for selecting a great pair of pants - I knew I could count on you! Have a wonderful weekend!

P.S. I just posted photos from Fashion's Night Out on my Facebook page! I will only say this: flipbooks are the new black.

  1. These look fabulous on you! They were my faves. But I agree the wide leg ones were pretty nice too! (you should totally go get them :))
    Love the way you styled them with the bright loose top and a pretty and colorful necklace.

    Hope you have an amazing weekend!

  2. See I voted for the other but nonetheless they look amazing on you as all the other outfits.. I read your tweets last night and sounds like you had a blast in Boston during FNO.. Glad to hear that!!

    Peace! ~Angel

  3. Ooh, you got them! I fully support you going back and getting the wide-leg pair too, but these are great on you. Love the color of your shirt too!

  4. you are only 5'2"??? I never would have thought from your pictures. I love these pants on you :)

  5. Love your trench coat!!

  6. These pants do look good on you, eventhough I voted for the other ones :P

  7. I voted for the wide leg, which you should definitely still get, but these do look great especially with this awesome shirt. These will look nicer with ankle boots too! Loved the pics from FNO! Have a great weekend :)

  8. Wow beautiful color of your shirt!!

  9. The crops were my favourites, but I did really like the wide legs on you too. These look great with the bright shirt and gorgeous trench!

    Hi Girl!

    So great to meet you yesterday at the cocktail party! Love the blog! Keep it up:)


  12. yay! These are the ones I voted for. You're right, though - the wide leg pants looked great too, so I'd go back for them as well!

    You're only 5'2"??? How do you always look so tall? I honestly thought you were like 5'8".

  13. I love the lime green and black! Are you coming to the swap? hope to see you there! For tickets, go here:
