Total Basset Case: Bottoms Up

Oct 9, 2013

Bottoms Up

As the air turns crisper in these parts and as I stood staring blankly into my closet this morning, I came to a realization....
I am seriously lacking in the fall pant department.
I have been rocking dresses and skirts as much as I can and I think that time is coming to somewhat of a close.
I donated quite a few pairs of pants and jeans last Spring and now am left with only a few options for work.
I really hate dress pants so now I am officially on the hunt for new jeans, chinos and/or cords.
(love these gray pants Shanna wore!) 
Skinnies have been my favorite for awhile now, I love that you can wear them with tall boots or booties.
Any suggestions on your favorite fall pants are more than welcome! 
Here are a few I have my eye on.
1| 2 | 3 | 4

I say this search shall take anywhere from the next 2-12 weeks to find something that I like and fits me correctly.
Now wish me luck as I plan on taking Nordstrom by storm this weekend.

I'm taking guesses for how many pairs of pants I try on versus how many actually come home with me.  Place your bets now!

I just fell in love recently with the diva skinnys at old navy - ON pants have never fit me right, but i LOOOVE these!

The Limited has cute dress pants that are skinnies black, tan or green.

Pants are the worst to stop for! I noticed my closet this morning was definitely lacking for fall. My big thighs and smaller waist do not get along with pants ha

I am a BIG believer in LOFT "dress" pants, chords and jeans (in fact I am wearing a pair right now!). They are 40% off online today from noon-7... just FYI

I don't know about you, but after taking up running I needed to get rid of most of mine and then go try on pants everywhere and find which styles worked on my running-shaped body... a good and bad thing, I guess :) Hope you find something great - I love option 4! Shoes and all.

I love that red pair and I am so obsessed with black jeans lately! I loved Shanna's grey pants too (and I also hate dress pants, although I somehow force myself to wear them almost daily)!

I HATE pants shopping! I try on way too many, get all hot and flustered and stressed out because nothing fits the way I want it to - then end up right back in the first store I went to buying the FIRST pair I tried on! So annoying!

I've only recently braved skinny jeans - wow am I happy I did, I can't believe I've skipped over them for so long! It's all about skinnys and boots now the sun has gone away!

The wine coloured ones get my vote, I love the colour right now!

Haha 2-12 weeks! That's so true though - I HATE shopping for pants. Totally loving skinnies too!

I hate shopping for pants also, and I totally agree with the 2 - 12 weeks to find something that fits. I like the idea of skinny jeans, especially to wear with boots, and I would love to find a pair in some cute colors, but I have a hard time finding them as I think I just look silly...ha! Maybe it's because I am not used to them I don't know. Good luck in your search and I can't wait to see what you find.
