The Range: Colored Trousers

Feb 9, 2023

For years, my entire wardrobe was skirts or dresses.  I didn’t own a single pair of pants that weren’t denim.  Then, I got pregnant, and separates re-entered the pictures because varicose veins came with the baby.  So as I try to add some spice to a wardrobe filled with pants, let’s try color.

    These are great! I didn’t even know I needed colored trousers in my life, but now I’m thinking about it. What would you suggest wearing on top? A white button down? Cream sweater? Thanks!

      I have deep purple and emerald dress pants. I pair the purple ones with a cream sweater usually and the emerald ones with a cream shell and a navy blazer, or the cream sweater, or a light grey thin sweater, or a goldenrod thin sweater. They are more versatile than I expected!

    Thank YOU for the color! Please consider featuring more outfits that mix and match colors for a professional look. There are already too many bloggers/insta folks doing the vanilla beige trend to death.

      Yes! I’m really over #vanillagirl – I’m pale, and pale colors make me look even more like a napkin. Would love to find more colored denim style and thinner cut pants as well. Anyone have suggestions?

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
