This sweater was one of my purchases with the gift card I won from Lisa. Thanks again!

As much as I like skinny pants, nothing in the world can make a girl feel leaner than a good pair of long, slightly boot cut pants, especially if she has muscular thighs, like me. Gap still makes great fitting pants, even if everything else they has is a bit blah. I wish they would take a cue from J.Crew and make some brighter clothes!

And speaking of skinny pants (well, jeans in this case), I made the mistake of going into Anthro yesterday and tried on a pair of AG skinnies and JBrand skinnies and loved both.

Do I really need a pair of lilac AND pink jeans? Probably not. Do I want them? Of course. Decisions decisions!

You are so right about a nice wide leg pant making you look long and lean. I love me some skinnies too, but my wide legged trousers have turned into another favorite. Love your sweater too! Heather

Oh, wow!! I love the colors of both of those skinnies you tried on! Those are super super cute!!

And you're absolutely right.... there's something about that wider legged jean. I'm wearing a pair today with heels and I feel so tall! lol

I love the sweater! This is a fantastic outfit, very sleek.

I would have a hard decision between the colored pants too - both would fit right in with your closet

I love Gap's jeans! So amazing. And girl, you need those red pants. Stat.

I like the Gap jeans and those pink jeans. They are building an Anthro in my neighborhood. Right now I don't shop there often, since all of the stores are 45 min away from me.

I almost didn't recognize you scrolling through my blogroll without pink! Love the striped top. I wish I could find some bootcut jeans that fit so well! They're often way too long (petites too short), and hemming ruins the legline. Ahwell when I find a pair I'll have to buy doubles.

I like the brighter jeans you tried on. I think they fit better and would suit your closet.
