Possible future needs: It doesn't get terribly cold here in Vegas during the winter, but it'd be nice to get a sweater or two. Depending on what kind of job I end up with, I may need to get a few tops, perhaps solid-colored. I'd also like to get a red cardigan (gave away the one pictured due to fit) because it goes so well with all of the blues in my closet.
I actually wear my distressed Old Navy denim skirt 95% of the time when I leave the house on the weekend or to run errands, so I don't think I need any more pairs.
L-R: Indigo Rein cuffed jeans, Jolt cargo pants, Calvin Klein petite straight leg jeans (I also have a pair in regular sizing), Old Navy Harper trousers.
Pants *sigh.* Why is it so hard to find a decent-fitting pair? I got away with wearing my cuffed jeans and straight leg jeans to work due to a very casual dress code, but I don't think I can get away with it here.
I've moved away from skirts in the last few years (kind of funny, as my first post featured a pencil skirt!), but I'm reconsidering - it seems easier to find a decent-fitting skirt that's work-appropriate.
Possible future purchases: One or two pairs of work pants and maybe a skirt or two. I also miss my pair of white jeans - I gave them away because they didn't fit anymore. I also miss my black-and-white patterned drapey pants, which I gave away because they were a bit too short. I didn't wear them too often, since the majority of my tops are patterned, but they were lightweight, comfortable, a different silhouette, and the only patterned pants I owned.
I've come to really appreciate a good dress - it's such a quick way to get dressed and look put-together. I'm always on the hunt for a good cotton dress - nothing beats cotton for comfort.
Possible future purchases: I'd like to get a couple of pairs of slightly dressy but comfortable sandals for work wear, and maybe a boot and/or oxford for cooler weather.
