Something Old and Something New
If it were possible to be in love with a pair of pants, I think I would be, with these navy corduroys. I picked these up on a [very frustrating, but that's another story] shopping trip over the weekend. I had tried them on and wanted to purchase them about a month ago, but they were a bit too expensive. I saw that they had been reduced by twenty dollars, though, so I decided to get them! Oh my goodness are they comfortable. They're stretchy, but don't stretch out as the day wears on. I was worried about this since nearly all of my other pants do this. I also think the dark color is a bit slimming, which is always good. And also, I just love navy corduroy.

This sweater is the "something old" I'm referencing in the title of this post. It's probably from around sophomore year of high school. I really haven't worn it (or seen it?) for years, and I had forgotten about it until I was trying to figure out what exactly to pair with the pants (inadvertent puns!). I knew I wanted to wear a sweater because it was another blustery, rainy day today, and when I found this sweater hiding in the back of my closet I was all "I think I'll wear this forgotten sweater today" (exact self dialogue, incase you were wondering). It has a bunch of mismatched buttons along the crazy neckline, which I find endearingly quirky.
