Being a fan of pattern overall, but especially on my skinnies, I was delighted to see several options for F/W plaid pants appearing on the forum and in stores. Before entering austerity August, I NAS'd one last time and ordered the Paige and Kut skinnies (see finds). Well, they came this week and I love, love , love the Paiges, so wore them to work today. Yes, it's still Summer, but it had cooled off a bit and I determined that wearing a white tee would lighten the effect. I just HAD to get out my charcoal studded high tops to wear with them for a little hard edge. Threw on the Caslon draped neck jacket for the morning bus ride and Bob's your uncle. Am looking forward to pairing them with my grey Picolino booties and black AGL double monk straps in Fall!

Haven't decided on the Kuts yet, but will post when I get them styled (and not with the pink J Crew sweater that Sveta and I both have and that she fabulously paired with the same skinnies!)

Last weekend I tried on the Express ankle window pane pants and also loved them. Nice weight and length for a shortie like me. I did not buy them, as it is August after all, but hope they will be available in Shoptember. Please ignore the lack of styling, it was a quick trip. I would also like to point out that Express has a nice faux leather light grey moto for anyone who covets this color.
