Hi Ladies, hope you all have had a lovely week! The Fashion Informant got a late start last week because the whole family came down with the flu. Everyone is back to healthy again and life is good. It was a good reminder of how much us moms really do on a daily basis because let me tell you, this house was not lookin’ good after just one days time. Which mystified me because from what I could tell, we barely left our rooms and yet a mountain of laundry and dishes still accumulated at lightening speed.
After being cooped up for a week, I decided to take a little shopping trip to Express. It had been awhile so it was fun to see the latest. I’ve long been a fan of the Columnist pants. I have a very high-waist and my waist line is a little on the blocky side (two kids stretched the rib cage). These Houndstooth ankle pants are totally meant for my body type. They sit just below the waist so it makes it appear as though I have more of a waistline than I actually do and yet high enough at the waist so that I’m not constantly pulling my pants up. The sleeveless button up top was another Express purchase. It is long so it would also be perfect paired with your favorite leggings as well. I chose to tie it at the waist with this look.
Here is what I wore…
- Pants- Column Ankle Pants Express
- Stiletto sandals- Betsey Johnson
- Bag- Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC
- Earrings- Bauble Bar Opal Galactic Drops

This weeks Fashion Informant is the lovely Natasha from the amazing blog Lovely You. Last week she wore this fabulous Jessica Simpson wide stripe dress and it looked fantastic on her. I especially love how she wore a pair of pink heels for a pop of color and completed this ensemble with a eye catching long layered necklace…perfection. Thanks so much for share your style with us Natasha! Stop by and say hello to Natasha at Lovely You for a ton of inspiration.
