Update: I brought a *third* light in to get some slightly brighter shots today. Also dried my hair and moved the Kid Art so I could get straight-on shots instead of angled, lol). Here are the cords with tallish ankle boots -- full length (#6), pinned up 1 inch (#7), and with a small double roll (#5). As usual, I think I like the tomboy vibe of the rolled version best... In any case, I like the full-on seventies vibe of striped turtleneck and toffee cords!

I ordered a few things on Friday, trying to take advantage of sale prices to fill a couple of wardrobe holes. Apologies for bare feet and wet hair -- the mail came while I was in the shower, and I had just enough time to snap pics before I head out for the rest of the day!

1 -- Frank & Oak jeans (a Canadian company, but free shipping to the US as well). I wore through the knees of my only black jeans last week (sob!), so I'm trying to find a replacement pair. These fit fine, and are nicely made, but I'm not head-over-heels in love. I just can't get excited about raw hems on brand-new pants. I have another pair of black jeans OTW (the Madewell ones in the Find), but those are raw hem too. Waiting 'til the Madewells arrive before I return these. 

2 -- A pair of corduroys from Frank & Oak. I really like these, and will probably keep. Saffron/mustard is not one of my usual colors, but will pair easily with black, charcoal, burgundy -- all of which I have lots of in my F/W wardrobe. Have been looking for a good pair of thick, non-stetchy cords for more than a year, and I think these fit the bill.

3/4 -- These are the leopard pants from Boden. I'm leaning towards keep (can try to get a photo of the print in better light -- my house is pretty dark this time of year!). They're a true ink blue, and the print is subtle. I like them. I've been meaning to add a pair of full-length non-denim trousers for a while; I have ankle tattoos, so as much as I love ankle pants, there are a handful of occasions for which I really need full length.

I also decided to try this cotton-cashmere sweater (jumper!), but it's going back. I love this color combo, but the fit is nothing special. I don't like the way the seam on the drop sleeve lies. The button side detail is cute, but too much fuss for something that doesn't look/feel great.

No Finds for the F&O pants, but here's a link to the company website: https://www.frankandoak.com/
