Working Mom Formula: Corduroy for the Win

Last week, I talked about my struggle to find the perfect pair of (non-jeans) pants. This week, I'm happy to report that I found a pair! I lucked out at the Gap and found a pair of slim-fitting corduroys, which are comfortable and casual, but I think they are a bit more polished than a pair of jeans. I've been on a neutrals kick lately, so after some debate between this pair and a reddish pair, I went with the navy. I think at the end of the day I couldn't convince myself I needed a second pair of red corduroys, even if both aren't in the current rotation. And also, navy blue is kind of my jam. Especially this ocean-y shade. 

When I was trying to do a mental assessment of all the things these pants would work well with, this paisley shirt came to mind right away. And what do you know, I was right. And I love being right; just ask Aaron. 

Will you be rocking the corduroys this fall? What color? 

Paisley shirt: J.Crew via consignment (pretty tunic); navy cords: Gap; nude flats: Target


  1. I really like the idea of a skinny cord. Something to mix up with denim, but still really comfy and casual. Of course you are right, paisley is a perfect choice.

  2. I love these pants! I have a couple pairs of cords that I will be wearing, I'd love to find some skinny ones like these! Love your shirt too - what a fun pattern!


I really appreciate hearing from you!
