One brand you will hear me praise often is White House Black Market. I am obsessed with their clothing. Working there also helped me support myself as a poor college student, so of course they have a special place in my heart. But besides that, their clothing is awesome: timeless styles and high quality. Every piece I’ve purchased there inevitably becomes one of my work staples – with the exception of some items I am still trying to squeeze back into post-maternity! Their pants all come in Petite, Regular, and Long, which as a tall girl, is super important. They are one of the few places I can confidently purchase pants and know A) they will fit and B) they are made to last. I always know I will get my money’s worth when shopping there.
One basic work wardrobe staple I HIGHLY recommend (of course, from #WHBM) is their ponte pants. Not joking, these pants will rock your world. Yes, you can look professional and feel comfortable! Huzzah! Hooray! Rejoice! Let the frolicking in the street begin! Ha! Maybe I’m over exaggerating the excitement of such a concept, but for me this deserves some celebration since I live in work wear 5 days a week. That’s about 260 days a year.
My most recent ponte purchase was the Ponte Slim Pants in Black and the Ponte Slim Ankle Pants in Burgundy (I’ve never owned red work pants, and I might have felt some giddiness when ordering- don’t judge!). I have already rocked the black pants, but the ankle pants I’m not so sure about. I’ve never owned ankle pants in my life, and it’s a bit of a struggle for me to embrace the fact that I’m intentionally wearing pants that are too short (since I spent my entire puberty pulling down pants that I was seemingly outgrowing by the minute). I’ve yet to decide if I will keep or return. Regardless, had to share about them, because trust me, you need a pair!
