In Between Summer and Fall

What to Wear to Work / Fall Floral Print Pants
I can hardly believe the first day fall is this week. I feel like the past month has been a whole bunch of transitions, but the one between summer and fall can sometimes be the trickiest of all.

Never Thought I’d Say: I’m Becoming a Pants Person

It’s no secret that my favorite thing to wear – whether it’s for work or on a weekend – is a dress. But lately, pants have quickly been claiming a significant stake in my wardrobe. And thanks to this perfect pair, I think it’s safe to say I’m becoming a pants person.

Since I got over my tomboy days, I’ve never really been a pants person.  Shorts, skirts, dresses, yes, yes, yes.  Leggings — why yes, I think I wore a pair every day this winter.  I’ve been lacking in the pants department so when I saw this pink pair at Zara in Santa Monica, I thought, “Why not?”

It’s getting a little too hot here to really get a feel for them (our meager two weeks of spring have long since passed), but I thought I’d take them for a brief test run. Admittedly, I love how they turned out!  Paired with a super lightweight, nude blouse, the color combo is perfect for spring!

I’ll definitely be investing in more when the weather cools down (during our two weeks of fall), but until then, it’s back to shorts, skirts, and dresses for me.
