The magic of Corduroy

Remember the children’s book Corduroy? I think of that cute bear everytime I say the word Corduroy.

But I’m talking more about the fabric commonly found in pants instead of the book. This season I have seen so many stores carrying corduroy pants. I picked up two pairs from J.Crew, one from Uniqulo and drooled over a pair at Tory Birch. I love the pairs I purchase, and they are in constant rotation for both work and weekend.

Why I love them:

  1. The sound they make when I walk (so good!)
  2. How soft they feel (i may pet my pants…)
  3. They come with belt loops (win!)
  4. They go well with collared shirts.
  5. They come in so many colors ( which is fun)
  6. I wear them instead of dress pants (cause who honestly likes wearing dress pants?)

Don’t you agree  that they are basically awesome (after jeans and pj’s)?!

I know it has been cold lately, so pants are still my go-to work option. I know I can wear skirts & tights, but seriously people, pants are the way to go when it is real scary cold.

I have so many cute pairs now and have been working hard not to snatch these up (i kinda want pants in every color). Instead, I am trying to focus and plan on doing things on my 101 bucket list!

It’s my first week back teaching high school and I am so looking forward to taking it easy this weekend. The Roomie and I are going wine-tasting on Saturday, which is on my bucket list!
