Pants, Vest, Blouse, Scarf, Belt & Braceket- Thrifted; Jacket- Gifted from ML; Shoes- Suzy Shier; Ring- Sears; Nail Polish- Hawaiian Girl
I prefer feminine silhouettes like skirts and dresses but when I wear pants I gravitate towards skinnies.  I like the way they hug female curves and they can look either casual or professional, depending on how you style them.  Here's two ways that I've worn skinnies to work recently, with bright nails,  funky accessories and pointy toed heels.

Top- Gap (Thrifted- worn like this); Pants- Old Navy; Shoes- Suzy Shier; Jewellery- Sears; Nail Polish- Plum Seduction by Revlon

Do you prefer skinnies or flares?


  1. skinnies!

    and I love both ways you styled them. great shoes too :)

  2. I definitely prefer skinnies, too. I honestly don't know the last time I wore flares!

    I love your bright green nails!

  3. I do like a nice cut flared pair of pants, but I've recently fallen in love with skinnies, so honestly I can go either way! I love your shoes and colorful jewelry. And I love your fun colored nails!

  4. skinnies or almost skinnies but definitely not something big and wide, haha. anyway, I totally love the first outfit because of all the layers and beautiful patterns, materials, clever combining. great job, Emily!

  5. those shoes in both colors are sassy! emily, i like how you show us your outfit details. i wear both skinnies & flares! :)

  6. I love how you styled your skinnies! They're definitely my preference too. Flares are nice but I find them a little harder to style. Skinnies are always my go-to!

  7. I love both outfits, the way you wore the skinny jeans is great! And both color shoes are gorgeous. I think wearing skinny jeans are a lot more versatile but flare jeans with a good fit can make legs look soooo loooong.

  8. i'm with you on the skinnies. lately i've been obsessed with them. then i ordered this pair of skinny bootleg jeans. they hugged really tight at the thigh and just flared at the bottom. i suddenly was IN LOVE and i have to say for a shortie like me they were extremely flattering!!! i love your look, the accessories are fantastic! the snakeskin bracelet and that gorgeous necklace. also LOVE those green nails!!!


  9. You have such great style, it's a joy to come here. I love your mix of colors.

    I rarely wear (women's) pants 'cause I'm fleeing from pants.

  10. i like them both, but own more skinnies, so i guess that is my answer lol
    cute looks

  11. While I used to be obsessed with flares, ever since I discovered skinny jeans at the end of my freshman year of high school, I rarely wear any other kind of jean! But I'm sure that has to mostly do with me being so tiny & the skinnies tend to have shorter inseams ;DD
    You look fab! I love that necklace! I seriously need to give Sears a shot! & that nailpolish is killer-- love it!! :D

  12. Flares! I have one pair of skinnies that I do appreciate with certain tops, but I LOVE my torn-up flares. :)

  13. I like both flare and skinnies. Both outfit are super cute.

  14. I definitely understand the skinny obsession. I am not much of a flare person, but I like a good bootcut. Skinnies are definitely the bestest though!

  15. It depends on how I feel about my body. If I've been gaining weight, then I put on my flares to balance out my heavy lower half. If I'm feeling skinny, then I put on my skinnies! :)

  16. I think there are different places & reasons to wear each. But I really love my skinnies. Also, pretty much love your furry vest :)

  17. I definitely prefer skinnies, and they look so great on you. Love that first look especially!


  18. WAY to work this crazy amazing first outfit...the layers are phenomenal, and I love how you paired the floral print with drab olive and fur!

  19. Skinnies 100% I barely wear any other cut these days. I am really adoring your purple heels in the first outfit and your gorgeous statement necklace in the second!


  20. I like both but in reality i have more skinnies. They are more versatile i guess. I like you floral vest and purple shoes...they look fabulous together. The fur jacket adds a nice finishing touch. I like the simple and classy look of top and skinnies too....with nice color accents on the accessories and shoes.


  21. Skinnies definitely. Even tho' I'll be 50 next year. I've been sneaking them into the office, and today had the epiphany that I could wear some of my summer dresses over them as tunics.

    I love what you did with both outfits, and I always enjoy your accessories and nails.


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
