WIWW - Ponte Pants

Last weekend was Homecoming at our alma mater. We really hadn't talked much about doing any of the evening activities, but at the last minute decided to have a quick date night to go see SING! {sing is hard to explain until you've seen it. it's basically several 10 minute mini-musicals that on campus groups preform. it's always a great deal of fun to see what the groups come up with!}

All that to say, here's a date night outfit!
fall outfit

cardigan: f21       shirt: walmart       ponte pants: gap {SO COMFORTABLE!} 
peacock pin: loft       bracelet: audacious {store in my hometown}       flats: antonio melani from dillards

two things:

1. I love these pants. My parents gave them to me for Christmas last year and I wasn't able to wear them as much as I wanted due to that whole growing belly. I will say though, I don't think you can wear ponte pants {ake, VERY FITTED} without wearing a top that is longer and covers your bum. Because I can be honest and say, they are definitely pants, as they're a thick material and have buttons/pockets, but they are also a fancy version of tights. And I am a firm believer that TIGHTS ARE NOT PANTS. So, I have to be selective on my tops when I wear these.

2. I have been on the hunt for a good pair of black ballet flats for months. Last week I showed off just how embarrassing my other pair was. WELL past their retirement date. Well, when I was at shopping at home in a larger Dillards than what we have, I found these and knew they were the ones.  Imagine my joy when my mom told me, "I never would have thought that you would buy such a boring, sensible pair of shoes." Yeah, talk about taking the wind out from under my wings! As you can see, I didn't let her words keep me from buying the shoes :)

linking up with the pleated poppy for wiww!


  1. I live in my ponte pants during the winter. Comfortable and ever so versatile!

  2. I love, love your bracelet/bangle! :) Visiting from WIWW.;)

  3. That bracelet is fantastic! Found you via the pleated poppy. Great date night look!

  4. Such a cute outfit! I love the cardigan over the chambray shirt, and those flats are adorable! (sometimes we need a "boring" staple in our wardrobe, and I bet you will wear them a ton!) :) Visiting from WIWW!

  5. Love those flats... I'm on the hunt for black ones too! I must get myself to the nearest Dillards. =) Found you through WIWW!

  6. I am with you on the Tights Are Not Flats front. Heck I even have some skinny jeans (probably more like jeggings though I hate that term) that I'm the same way about - need a top that covers my bum!

    But all that aside, this is a cute and comfy look. :)

  7. Very cute outfit & love the cuff!
