Boy am I a lover of these sweatpants disguised as style trouser type things called Joggers! I've featured them on here before but know I am seeing them everywhere even down to Old Navy. Which means they are super budget friendly. I am not seeing them in the thrift stores that much but the consignment shops are showcasing them. I did find one pair of mine for $7 at a local shop.
So...comfy, stylish and affordable all at the same time? I cannot ask for more. I love how you can wear them with flats and they can come off as sporty chic. Heels, of course, are always a good companion for a slouchy pant because it can make the outfit look dressier in a flash. Wow. Wearing my pajamas out of the house. Thank you fashion gods.
I definitely jumped out of my seat with excitement when eShakti contacted me and asked if I would like a custom made clothing item from them. YES PLEASE! I've seen other bloggers enjoy their Eshakti pieces and I am glad I got invited to eat at that lunch table! Ha! Let me tell you; choosing what I wanted was the hardest. They have so many choices! Dresses, skirts, tops...I was so excited! After much deliberation I decided against a dress and went with these pants so I could use them throughout the fall with ease. There were only two options for pants so I kind of felt like I was unearthing a treasure. I was not disappointed with my choice!
What makes eShakti so special is you give them your measurements when you order so your garment is CUSTOM MADE for your body! I liked the fit of my pants. They are meant to be slouchy so I was ok with the roomy fit. Although I do believe they could be a bit slimmer in the thigh and I would be more comfortable with that. I chose my hip shape as "curvy" which I am but I think that caused it to have too much room in the hips. I love the pattern and the high waist. The length is perfect to wear with heels. If I wear them with flats they are just a tad too long. If you choose to order these and want to wear with flats, I would take your measurement and subtract an inch or two.
I am in love with the pattern! I chose to pair it with white right now because the weather was gorgeous and still slightly warm and I could get away with this sheer top. I have a navy sweater that is just waiting to be paired with these bad boys for the winter! Isn't the pattern gorgeous?
They are super comfy and the fabric is sturdy. It isn't flimsy and see through. I got lots of compliments on these! The pockets are roomy and usable. You can opt to have no pockets but I love them. The drawstring is long and doesn't slip through the openings. I can't really find a negative about the construction or fabric! If you are looking for a more closer fitting trouser pants then choose slim or average for your hip shape.
Overall I am ecstatic about my eShakti pants! They are such a welcomed breath of fresh air to my wardrobe! I love that I can pair them with darker colors for the winter. Comfy navy sweater....brown boots...chunky scarf! Yes! Oh and since we're talking about the future, next summer they are getting a crop top paired with them for sure.
Head on over to eShakti and order your custom clothing RIGHT NOW!

Fully embracing autumn at this point. In case you can't tell from these photos. My family and I went to a pumpkin patch over the weekend and even though it was raining we still managed to have a wonderful time. It was a much needed break from the daily grind and a way to really appreciate the season before it passes us by! Warning: Fall Photo Overload!

I have partnered with Angela & Roi handbags in the past and they recently contacted me to share with you their brand new clean and crisp website and a two brand new handbag designs!
A little bit of a refresher course about the who and what of Angela & Roi:
Angela & Roi combine fashion and philanthropy by color. Meaning, each bag can coordinate with a color that, in turn, coordinates with a cause. The Donate by Color mission means they will donate a portion of each handbag sale to chosen non-profit health organizations. From their website..."For example, Lung Cancer awareness links traditionally with the color white. When customers purchase a white handbag, five dollars will automatically be donated to Lung Cancer Alliance. Our company works together in total with eleven non-profit organizations."

They are rolling out their brand new Minimal Bucket Bag and Moa Tote! I don't know about you but I have been on a kick for simplifying my wardrobe lately. I'm drawn to neutrals this fall season.
Another new design this season is the Moa Tote. Check it out:
Both designs are made from soft, vegan leather. The Minimal Bucket Bag will give you an easy going, casual look while the Moa Tote brings a sophisticated, elegant style to your wardrobe. Both excellent choices! And as always, their colors available match up with a excellent platform for promoting awareness tovery important causes.
I'm over at Asheville Grit today with a T-Shirt Scarf Tutorial! I took a pin that has been collecting dust on my Pinterest board and put it to the test! I had a few roadblocks but all in all I think it was a Pin Win!
Every day isn't fancy around these parts. Some days it's just jeans and a tee shirt. One thing that I keep in my bag of tricks is a bold color of lipstick that can add a splash of color to a simple outfit. Today I grabbed a deep burgundy color that just so happened matched this wall I was casually standing in front of...doing much of nothing...
