Comfort zone

Black Rag & Bone blazer Cmeo top alice and olivia white trousers Tibi mules
Back to black and white. It really is my comfort zone, because it is such a classic combination that will always be modern and sophisticated. And it's so easy to do with things you already have in your closet. I've really been trying to set a more strict clothing budget, what with the holidays coming up and trying to save more in general. In limiting what I buy, I am discovering different pairings among existing pieces that I've never tried before.

These white flared trousers are from Alice + Olivia, and are actually from several years ago. I haven't worn them in years since they are dressier than flared denim, and I don't usually dress up for the office unless I'm meeting with clients. But with flares being the "It" silhouette of the season, I am so glad I kept them. They are hemmed a few inches, and I purposely kept them long to wear with heels. My pair is old, but this season's version is available here (use the code INTHEFAM25 for an extra 25% off!).

The bf made some interesting comments about these pants, which made me think about how men and women approach clothing. He said if he loved a pair of white pants as much as I did, he would wear them almost every single day because he loved it so much. But for me (and I'm sure for lots of you ladies), I love a ton of different things in my closet, and I move from piece to piece because there's so much love to share. It made me laugh, because I think it's true that most guys will buy one thing and get away with wearing it all day every day, whereas a lot of women are constantly searching for that next thrill. It also made for a funny analogy for relationships! :)
