The comfiest {& chic!} plaid pants in my closet that go with everything

When we went to New York, packing was no easy feat.

For starters, I’m from Texas so bulking up my cold weather section of my closet happened when I moved to California. In fact, the day I moved to San Francisco, it was over 100 degrees in Dallas & I landed to 60 degrees here!

I have enough mockneck sweaters and coats to get me through San Francisco – but New York? That was a different story.

Also, I didn’t want to check a bag.

I knew what sweaters I was bringing {to be exact: this one, this red one, & this black one} but other than the dope slit leggings I blogged about, I had no idea. What I REALLY wanted was either houndstooth or glen plaid pants.

In fact, I had the most perfect thought of my fuzzy pink sweater with some plaid for all the Clueless feels.

Before our flight, I ran into Urban Outfitters in the Marina & my prayers were answered because they had legit exactly what I was looking for… in fact it was even better than what I was looking for.

[dahz_framework_image_content title=”UO Casey Plaid Kick Flare Pant” id=”8509″ btn=”BUY ME!” btn_url=”http://shopstyle.it/l/rrvq”]The coziest pants with an on trend print! These pants are slightly cropped, with a flannel like material & can go with any type of shoe. To make it even better, they have an elastic waistband so they are extra comfy & totally chic.[/dahz_framework_image_content]

 

These pants are cozy af (seriously, they feel like flannel pajama pants), the exact cut I wanted, elastic waistband {i love this because I find it allows the pants to hang the way I want them} & the best part…. the print was a mix between both houndstooth AND plaid.

The damage was only $40 and it was a match made in heaven.

Here, I’m wearing them with a red mock neck from Express, a black faux fur moto jacket mentioned here, mesh socks & my velvet supergas.

I really LOVE red with plaid, it’s festive enough for the holidays and a classic pairing. On my lips, I’m wearing Glossier’s balm dot com in Cherry topped with Generation G lipstick, then topped with their lip gloss – buy the duo here. Side note but I am a MAJOR glossier girl. I’d say my beauty drawer is 75% them. { PS – buy from my link here and get 10% off your first orer! }

A chunky knit & these pants are seriously a match made in heaven. Though I’m digging red with them, they go with every single colour! Try them with cobalt blue, emerald green, mustard yellow, neon pink – all of them work.

They also go with any kind of shoes! I’m having a major sock moment right now & loving the idea of them with these Balenciaga socks {HUGE on my Christmas list hint hint Erik}, with some sneaks, peeking out of combat boots or a sleek black heel.

Between these & my slit leggings, my New York wardrobe was complete & all done in one bag!

Happy Monday! I feel like the weekend always just flies by.

We spent all day Saturday in wine country and this is a short week for both Erik & I before we take some time off until the new year. It’s always fun to stay in SF for the holidays since everyone leaves & it’s a ghost town so we look forward to playing tourist in our city. Any SF reccs?? Let us know!

See ya Wednesday for a more personal post I alluded to here – can you guess what it is? 😉 x
