Eggplant Pants // and a giveaway!


skinnies : c/o A-Thread
slouchy top: Old Navy (similar)
boots: Loft

If you aren't aware that colored "skinnies" are in this season I would argue that you haven't been outside of your own home for the past 4 months.

They are big. Almost every store has them. 

But not every store has the right colors. I, along with most people I think, like wearing darker colors in the winter. I have a pair of orange skinnies that I wore in the summer that are retired until next year. I'm sure I could find a cute idea on Pinterest on how to wear bright pants in the fall, but instead I'll stick to the deep colors and make my life simpler.

A-Thread happens to have the perfect selection of deep fall colored skinnies. They sent me these eggplant ones, which I love--and have found many new ways to work them into my existing wardrobe.

A-Thread is an online clothing boutique that emphasizes on giving back. They offer on-trend items and 
give back 5% of each purchase to a charity that you can choose. 

Some of the other things I'm loving at A-Thread . . .
