I Dream of...

Every fall wardrobe needs a great pair of trouser jeans, and I cannot get enough of these from Old Navy. They are $25, come in two different washes, and are super flattering- does it get any better? Speaking of fall, when will it cool down?! I have tried to avoid raving about pumpkin spice lattes and apple cider and hot cocoa, but come on... I am ready for some brisk weather. Get with it Mother Nature!




Two important things happen this Friday- the official start of fall and my birthday! Curtis keeps asking me what I want. Apparently he can't control the weather and a new car is out of the question, so I am pretty stumped. I want a quirky sweater with some sort of woodland creature on it (that doesn't cost an arm and a leg) and a pair of shoes that look like pencils. However, I really struggle with spending that kind of money on a trendy, silly thing. I just can't do it. A nerdy girl can dream though, right?

I've actually never purchased Old Navy pants - I should look into it! That's a great price and they are just a perfect pant!

So, I don't know anything about this website, but I found a great deal on a fox sweater from last fall's Mossimo (Target) line:

Fall actually starts Saturday but who's counting. ALSO, I have those trouser jeans but the long length variety were too short! ALSOOOO, the high tomorrow is 73 :)

Oh my, too many things to comment on! :) Yes, every woman definitely needs a great pair of trouser jeans in her wardrobe. Yours look fabulous on you! Hey, we're both Virgos!! My b-day is tomorrow! I knew we had a connection! :) Those pencil flats are the cutest thing I've ever seen!! Perfect for a teacher! That definitely has to be your excuse for buying them!

Cute top and those jeans look great on you :) It was so hot here this weekend and it totally bums me out... I am really for layering, hot drinks, and BOOTS. (Definitely almost typed boobs).


Happy Monday!

Kathy Haynes said...

I love the outfit! The colors are great! I'm ready for fall also!

The sweater and the pencil shoes are freaking adorable, so I can't blame you for wanting them for your birthday:) Love the trouser jeans on you!

ThreadsAndButtons said...

Oh the wonderful trouser cut jean. I LOVE em! MY current favorite pair is from Old Navy as well. I WISH the weather would cool down already, but here in AZ I think I'll be waiting until November :(

Always Maylee said...

You look so pretty! I'm not sure I can pull off trouser jeans as well as you. My legs might be too short, but you've inspired me to try!


As far as your quirky woodland creature sweater... have you tried looking on Etsy!? I bet you could find one there that doesn't cost too much! Happy birthday!

Okay, you should check out ASOS cause they have the coolest sweater with an owl print and its about $50.00. Pricey for me, yes. But if it was my birthday? No. Treat yourself! And confession: I don't own a pair of trouser jeans. Yeah. Wishing right now that I did so I could try to look as good as you do in yours!

sarahfina said...

oh, we have the same birthday!!!! also, live a little... get your crazy teacher pencil flats :)

Carrie said...

Pretty top - the colors and print suit you so well. :) And I love a good trouser jean, particularly with a bright shoe! I'm still looking for a great pair of trouser jeans, so I'll have to check out Old Navy's.
Birthdays are for frivolity ... so I think you should definitely pick up that sweater and those flats!

grownandcurvywoman said...

Love the print of your shirt! Ive already been drinking pumpkin spice coffee and hot chocolate. So what if its not brisk outside, they are my crack! LOL

Annie said...

Love the trouser jeans, and love the pattern of that top Katie!

I love trouser jeans too! My favorite are from the Gap, but that's just Old Navy with another name :D

P.S. I am your newest GFC follower, I thought I had done if before, but apparently I'm a bad blogger friend :(

Selah said...

I have short legs and I love my trouser jeans. These are the ones I have:

Katie, why is it that I can never find slacks this sensational when I go to Old Navy? I have yet to walk out of that store with anything that fits. Although, that's not true, I love the way their Sweetheart jeans fit. But you know what I mean, the cute stuff. The tops, the cardis, the adorable tote bags. Sigh. I'm going to have to shop online. Maybe then I can find stuff I like. :)

Jupe_Cambria said...

Dittos on the need for trouser jeans, oh my word, I rely on them! Got mine for $2 :)

Dang! What a great deal you got :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I only shop online for Old Navy stuff- I hate the clutter and mess and selection of their stores. I cannot deal with it! I think you'll be pleased shopping their website :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thanks Tori! Now I need to check and see if I follow you via GFC... I think I do, but I read through BlogLovin (Which I ADORE), so who knows? I'll check!!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Annie! Sean picked this top out for me for Mother's Day!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Perhaps if I drink enough cold weather drinks, I can WILL fall into happening??

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Hmmm.... you are talking me into it!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Happy Birthday!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Oh, I've definitely already bookmarked that baby! Isn't it precious?!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Rebecca!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Lenore just mentioned the same sweater! I have seen it and I love it, but just like you, that's a little out of my comfort zone. What I need is for Old Navy to make me a fox sweater!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I have been scrolling through etsy... they've definitely got some options!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I know exactly how you feel. Supposedly our high tomorrow is 73, but I think I run 10 degrees hotter than normal people so I will still have to dress for summer!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Right?!?! I would pay full price and then some for that sweater, but it's from last year and not available. I even checked EBay!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Kathy!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Megan... and I know you are totally ready for boobs too! ;P
One time a male student said to me, "I really like your boots", but I thought he said boobs and I almost died!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Happy, happy birthday! We are like fine wine. We get better with age!


I agree 100% about the shoes!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Apparently you are counting! ;)
I can't believe those jeans in long weren't long even. I had at least 6 inches if not more that I had to get hemmed on the regular length ones! Did you get a longer inseam too?


73 to me and my screwed up hormones will feel like 83, so I am still bummed. I want to wear sweaters. I am tired of these stupid summer clothes!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I wish I know more about the website because that is a super cute sweater. I might have to chance it!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Meghan!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I've had a little like with them in the past. But I love these jeans!

Selah said...

Dorothy Perkins has some animal sweaters (or jumpers as the Brits call them), like this squirrel:

Love the trousers on you. They're great, and such a nice way to look professional yet still be in denim. Happy almost birthday!

Audrey @ Putting Me Together said...

Pencil shoes! How cute. Happy almost birthdayyyy. And yes on the trouser jeans. And the plea for cooler weather.

vogue_or_bust said...

Haha I'm the opposite, I would be completely content with this warm weather forever! Absolutely loving this look, those trousers are amazing - so funny, last year I found an amazing ON bottoms find too, these high-waisted flares that I can't find for the life of me though! Can't argue with the prices there though, can't believe these were only $25! Looking lovely as ever :)

Trouser jeans are an essential. I love the Merona and Loft brands. You look very sophisticated; love the bright graphics on your top.


I hope you get something wildly sexy, trendy and fun :)

i LOVE the trouser jeans from ON - they are so flattering on every figure! you look great, katie!

Marissa said...

Yay for birthdays, fall weather, and apple cider! Yum!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I think I may make some cider this weekend!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I agree! And such a great value!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Loft and Merona make some great-fitting trousers!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I HATE when I can't find something. I don't understand how it happens, but it has happened to me several times. Thank you Alexandra!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Right? I am dying over the shoes. Shouldn't I be able to use classroom money and buy those shoes? Come on!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you! Thank you!
