slouchy basics for work and maybe the weekend, too

apiece apart marina draped pants and lauren manoogian's wedge cardigan at mille.

it's always fun to do a bit of imaginary shopping on payday before the realities of the month ahead hit. i love early fall weather, but it's been heartbreaking to see the moth damage on my knit collection. i'm still holding onto a few pieces for sentimental reasons, but i had to throw out nearly half. sadness.

the almost good enough work pants: J.Crew Eaton boy trouser

In case you couldn't tell, work started again...I keep meaning to post, but I barely have time to eat, let alone go online these days.

I did, however, want to mention that I've found an almost good enough work pant at J.Crew. Normally their pants fit me atrociously. The Eaton boy trouser in stretch wool are mid-rise so you can tuck in dress shirts, but the side pockets flare open and the seat bags out pretty quickly.

I tried skinny black dress pants at Zara and Topshop but they were impossible on me. I'm not sure I could do any better in the $100-150 range. Any thoughts?
