I have the hardest time finding pants that fit well. Doesn’t help that I have quite a few pairs in my closet that no longer fit, or at least fit the way they should. Since I’m finally coming to terms with that reality, I’ve starting purchasing a few pairs of new bottoms to diversify my wardrobe (can’t be a million tops and two bottoms!). These Gap khakis are my happy new addition. They’re cozy and totally perfect with flats, yet can still head to work with a pair of heels. And, ps: I’m totally addicted to this burgundy hue, particularly when it’s paired with leopard. Have you tried this pairing yet?

Ah, the ankle strap. It initially appeared a year or two ago as a bit of a fad — or maybe exclusively for the leggy girls who could seemingly pull off anything — but the ankle straps are clearly not going anywhere, and this average girl has totally embraced it. Reason being? They’re totally functional yet pretty darn sexy if you don’t mind me saying. Especially in the heel version, pair them with dresses and skirts (promise most won’t make you look too stumpy! It works on my 5’3 self and I get tons of compliments along the way), and you can also wear skinny pants that skim your ankle, or go for a boot or wide-leg cut that cover the straps. I love how the ankle strap makes shoes easier to walk in, eliminates the fear your heel might pop out and keeps you more steady. Can you tell this clumsy girl approves? Ha! Here are our favorite finds for fall…
color-block flat // glitter cap toe // tan + camo flat
pointed toe gold flat (just $30, and comes in 5 colors!)// chain link flat // studded glam flat
asymmetrical nude heel // navy kitten heel (comes in 5 colors!) // black pointed toe heel
red bow pump // leopard kitten heel // red kitten heel
open-toe (perfect with tights!) // two-tone (also in red) // black bootie
Ok, ladies. Totally placing blame here:
My love affair with statement jewelry is all BaubleBar’s fault. No joke. I mean probably 2/3 of my costume jewelry the past few years is the result of fun online purchases from this site, which has nearly everything under $50, plus constant awesome specials (hello, $10 deals on Fridays!). Latest love? BaubleBar’s 30 days of sparkle! Bam diggity! Today it’s 20 percent off tortoise shell pieces, and I’m gawking at all of it like a crazy lady. Totally digging this, this and this. So contemporary yet classic, right?
Confession: dresses are way awesome (ok, kind of a duh there). Think about how it does the work for you. Dress + accessories and you’re done. No pairing shirts with pants or skirts or who knows what. And, I loooveee this dress so much. I’m an oddly huge fan of dresses and shirts that are elbow length and this one also has an ultra flattering shape that I’ve worn more casual like here, and dressed up with these go-to heels. I could seriously wear either these new booties + these heels every single day…. but that’s another story for another day.
