AJ Wears :: Navy Pants

Happy two-year anniversary to these pants, which I bought in Nice at an H&M. I couldn’t find them online when I looked, so I convinced myself they were a special European strain of pants that only I had. Honestly though, I really love them. They’re super light and flowy, which makes them perfect for hot summer days when you have to look put together but also want to feel breezy.

In other news, the last time I wore these pants on the blog, they didn’t zip up all the way. Now they do. This is a great lesson in NEVER THROW ANYTHING AWAY (sorry, Marie Kondo).

AJ Wears :: Floral Shorts

Behold, the compliment shorts. No matter where I wear these things, someone stops me to compliment them. I'm not sure why I wear anything else.

Funny story about these shorts, though. They were almost the shorts that weren't. I had to make an exchange with Trunk Club and told my stylist she could toss some other stuff in there for me to check out. It was a particularly busy week so I didn't really get to do a full try-on and blog post, but the morning I was boxing everything up I picked up this bag and said, "Oh, this is a cute print. Are those shorts?" Mr. AJ and I are literally about to walk out the door and I ran to the bedroom to try these on. He was watching me try to shimmy into these shorts saying, "You're never gonna get those on." Which only made me shimmy harder because DARNIT I KNEW THEY'D FIT.

They just needed a little coercion. I was in a hurry, after all, and elastic is a stubborn beast. I took one look in the mirror and said, "Okay, those are cute," before tossing them aside and taking the rest of the trunk down to be picked up.

Long story longer, they fit, this was a great impulse buy, and I've worn them almost once a week since. They're not super expensive and look way cuter in person than on the website, so I'd give them a try if they have your size (these are the large and I'm a fairly solid 8/10 these days).

AJ Wears :: Wide Navy Pants

Y'all know I love full disclosure. These pants didn't zip all the way up today. So I found a shirt that would cover the zipper, and I went to work, because I'm fabulous and I don't need my pants to zip. I got these pants in NICE, FRANCE, yo. Pretty sure people are a lot smaller there because they only eat cheese and bread or something. Am I gonna let slightly small pants ruin my day? No way, Rosé.

Most people complimented my shirt anyway.
