I don't know about you, but it's been coooooooold here in Austin. Yesterday, it was warmer in Anchorage than in Austin. What??? I live in Austin on purpose! It's not supposed to get cold like this!

My mom has been telling me for months that this is going to be the coldest winter of my whole life, so I better get to bundlin'. I don't know if it's actually the coldest in my 23 years, but it's most definitely up there. Last winter was one of the mildest I can remember. I could have probably survived without a real coat. That is not the case at all this year.

In an attempt to prepare for the coldpocalypse, I ordered myself a pair of corduroys. One of my dear friends has an internship in Chicago and asked what she should wear, and I immediately knew that she needed a whole closet of colored cords to keep her warm and stylish in her new gig. She went on a little shopping spree at Loft and found some fabulous pairs. I haven't spent a lot of time shopping at Loft, mostly because they're usually just out of my price range, and because their website frustrates me (does anyone else feel this way??). But, I knew that they recently redesigned their pants selection to better fit real women's bodies, so I thought I'd give it a little look-see. Bonus: Loft was having a 50% off sale between Boxing Day and New Year's!

I ordered this rust pair of cords, not really knowing how they would fit, and this white sweater that's just like my emerald one. They came in the mail last week and I decided they deserved an outing together for both fitting so beautifully! Honestly, all the pants that I have ordered online have fit me better than those I've bought in the store. I don't know what it is, saved up karma or something, but I'm very appreciative!

Do you shop Loft? What's your experience like with Internet Pants?


  1. Those cords are so cute! I'm amazed you can order pants online! If I tried that I would inevitably end up with pants I couldn't even get up all the way! haha!

  2. I feel the same way about Loft. I like a lot of their stuff, but I feel like the quality doesn't quite reflect the price. If you can get it on a good sale it's amazing though. I love this outfit! I have weird feelings about cords. I love them when I see them, but something about them reminds me of being a child in the 90's and I feel like I can't wear them or something. Andy has a really cute pair of maroon ones he got on sale at the GAP though, so I guess I just need to get over myself. I love the mix of textures you have here.


  3. I loveeee the loft. Though I typically stick with birthday gifts, big sales, and sales on the sale rack so my choices are limited. I'm wearing my matching green sweater today!

  4. Love the corduroys! Loft is one of my favorite stores. It's usually out of my price range, too but they have great sales. I regularly see them having 40% off everything! Now that's the kind of shopping I like!

  5. love love love that necklace! I'm also really digging how put together, but simple this outfit is. I bet you were super comfy in it!


  6. I'm smitten with both your cords and your sweater! I love a thick, chunky-knit sweater for the winter, and yours is just adorable! And the color of your cords is so pretty, too :)
