Skinny Jeans and a Trench Coat | Outfits

Club Monaco trench coat and Pilcro Anthropologie skinny jeans

Dear Francy,

I am known to wear some skinny jeans now and then, although generally I don’t wear pants often. They never seem to fit right. These Pilcro jeans from Anthropologie come close, but they’re definitely too small in some places and too loose in others. If only eShakti made pants, right?

Think it’s almost time to retire the trench coat for the season. After this week it’s supposed to hit the 30s… not sure if I’m ready for snow yet! Wasn’t it just September?

    when you retire the trench – ship it to Austin! it’ll do just fine for the unseasonably (is that a word?!) cold weather we’re having. i’m diggin’ the color combo, Alex. this outfit looks great on you.

    Love the shade of your shirt! It’s such a great pink. And that trench is a great winter basic. Oh and that watch… Gotta say I love everything about this look. – Katy

    It’s not QUITE cold enough here yet for me to swap my car coat out for my heavier-duty wool one, but I don’t think it’ll be too long…I should hie me to the dry-cleaner and get it prepped posthaste.

    I think my favorite part of this outfit is the scarf–I’m making grabby hands even as we speak.

    Thanks for leaving such a darling comment on my blog!

    I really like your outfit here, the trench is so pretty and I want this bag in my closet, too! Agree with the jeans thing, they NEVER fit quite right…

    Have a great day,

    I hate wearing pants/jeans as well. Believe it or not, I have found luck at the Rainbow store on 5th and 36th. If you’re in the mood to splurge, Joe’s Jeans are awesome!

    P.S. So not ready for snow yet either!

      Hmm next time I’m in Herald Square I’ll have to pop by the Rainbow store. I’ve always liked Joe’s but I don’t think they’re the best fit for me. I usually have trouble with too much fabric through the hip. Sometimes I think the perfect pair of jeans is an urban legend!

    pants are just hard for everyone. the more stretch the better, I always say.
    That is a mighty cool looking watch you’ve got there. I’m going to go check ou the other colors!
