Your Last Breaths Moving Through You

I look about as tired as I am these pictures. It’s nothing a Sugar Free Red Bull can’t handle, though.

I MAY have forgotten I had these pants. They were all of $13.00, I think, at Forever XXI, and I actually really like them. But I have a hard time remembering pants in general. I just don’t like them. I mean I like THESE, but in general, when I’m getting dressed, I don’t think “pants”. They just aren’t as versatile or flattering to me as dresses. I know some of you feel the same!

December 17

We are doing Secret Santa at the office and I choose to participate because everyone else was and I’ve never been great with peer pressure. Normally these things do not go well for me, but this year I’m actually getting really thoughtful gifts and my Santa has yet to forget a day! Chocolates, lip balm, candles, a jar of the uber fatty and caloric deliciousness that is La Madeline’s Tomato Basil Soup. And the person I am gifting seems to be really pleased as well. It’s been really nice.

It is funny that you don't think pants when getting dressed; I NEVER think dresses. I have only one dress. Unbelieveable, I know.

Incidentally, I'm wearing my jeggings today. LOVE THEM!

I was just thinking "those pants look grat on her" as I scrolled to the part where you don't really like pants in general. Girl, I hear ya. I love them for comfort and laziness (don't have to worry about being ladylike with the leg crossing) but I always feel schlumpy in them.

I wish I had pants I forgot about! I get so tired of wearing the same few pairs over and over. I prefer dresses, but I don't have any thick tights right now so I've been in pants ever since we got that cold snap about a month ago! SO BORING.

I do think you look good in them when you actually wear them, for what it's worth!

I know you have bad luck with secret santas so I'm really glad this one is going well! I've definitely had my share of clunkers.

I'm with you on the pants. Actually the only "pants" I have that I can wear to work are the fake snake-skin leggings (aka: my 80's rock star pants!), and I still have to wear those under dresses or skirts, so they're kind of completely pointless as pants. Even though you're not a big fan of the pants, all your work pants seem to look fantastic on you!

I had to wear pants twice this week due to subzero temps, and I was PISSED!

Such a great little pattern on that blouse ... great colors, and the pattern makes a fantastic texture.

Sounds like the Secret Santa is going well; I gotta say I'm a little jealous, my office is very un-festive this year. I love these pants on you, but I know what you mean about dresses.

I firmly believe you look so good in pants, especially slimfit ones. But I do prefer your dress outfits. :)

I love the blouse and the boots!
