It took about three years, but I think I have come full circle.
Sweater: LOFT V-neck cardigan (similar) / Blouse: Babaton Peyton / Pants: Theory Louise (or here on super sale but final sale) / Shoes : LAUREN by Ralph Lauren Adena Pumps / Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel / Rings: Aldo / Earrings: Gabriela Artigas / Scarf: Banana Republic
I have to mention these new Theory pants I'm wearing. Wow. Just wow. I've been looking for the perfect wool slim leg work pant for ages and I finally found it in these pants. It could maybe use a smidge of hemming, but they otherwise fit amazingly well. I only wish that these were lined. If you are sensitive to wool, these may be a bit itchy. but if you are petite and can fit *almost* Max C, these fit just a tiny bit smaller. Keep in mind however, that if you carry more weight in your legs than I do, these might actually be too tight for the office.
They are on sale for $110 on Theory.com, but are final sale. If you can get your hands on a pair just to try on, to gauge your size I would totally do so. I'm trying to determine what other colors I need to buy!
