I’m getting my color done today, so pardon my hair. It’s a disaster and I just had to pull it up today, but now looking at this picture confirms that I definitely need SOMETHING framing my face; long bangs, whatever, I do NOT like it all pulled back. But anyway…
The pants. Of course the James Perse crepe surplus pants are perfect. Well, kind of. They would be perfect if my calves weren’t so freaking huge. They’re still great, but I would have gone with a size 2 if not for my calves (the legs are cut rather slim) and been fine with them. The size 3 gets very slouchy with wear, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I did want them to be just a little less slouchy, and more “fitted.” They’re a dream to wear, good for today’s weather which is going to be about 60 and sunny – not good for 30’s or below. Of course, they’re a bit longer on me than the model(s), so the legs slouch down over the elastic hem (which I do love). And you better believe I’m going to be wearing them with my Nikes, a la the James Perse model…
Obviously, I completely and totally recommend these pants, I love them more than my Splendid athletic pants; they have a bit more character. If you have “normal” sized calves, then take your normal size in these, or you might even go down a size – the viscose definitely stretches with wear.
