You know those things, people, clothes you hold onto because you just can’t bear to part ways with no matter how many times you try. They’re the ones that you have the hardest time deciding whether they should be categorized in the KEEP or THROW AWAY BECAUSE YOU’RE BETTER OFF WITHOUT THEM pile. Really, the definition of a love/hate relationship.

And that is how I feel about these H&M floral pants — love them because they’re ultra comfortable (rayon/spandex goodness) but hate them because… HELLO DROP CROTCH. An openly anti-drop crotch person, I gave in to the comfort these pants provide and the fact that I’d make sure to hike these babies¬†up so the drop crotch is less apparent. Suppose that by now since they’ve passed the keep or toss test multiple times, they are meant to stay in my closet!

If I were to ever undertake the daunting six items or less challenge for 30 days, a cable knit sweater and red blouse would likely make the cut for my key staples. It’s taken awhile, but I’ve finally learned how to build a wardrobe vs. stocking one with pieces I believed I needed.

Favorite nail polish color at the moment is this aquamarine hue from NCLA, fittingly named Santa Monica Shore Thing. It’s that subtle but perfect balance to my red/maroon/orange look.
