Black pants Friday

I'm not one to fight crowds for a Black Friday bargain... I do pretty well with my sales on all the other major shopping days of the year, and I'd much rather sleep in and maybe (probably) do some online shopping.

But if I were going out, I'd probably throw on these black pants from the Gap, a.k.a. my new favorite pants. I'm not sure how I never realized that black pants are like jeans. They go with everything, only they can also be worn to the office on the other four days of the week. These have a two way stretch so they are perfect for sitting in, as well as running around in. Gap is always having a sale and I got them for a mere $25. I only wish they came in more colors.

  1. This vest is so fabulous, what a great find! You look gorgeous.


  2. I am embarrassed by how many black pants I own...but it's true, they work with everything!

  3. OH man am I with you on the sleeping in and not shopping thing! I really love your trousers! I just had to finally cave and order a bunch of maternity clothes from Old Navy a few days ago--are these elastic waist? If so, consider me sold! I think these look great with the stripes and puffy vest!

  4. Black pants are part of my "uniform" - when in doubt I wear them. They are so versatile and great for the office.
    Your vest is stunning!
    I wish I could still wear sandals but we have snow over here in Bavaria...

  5. absolutely love the look!

  6. Gap is one of my fave stores to shop, and I always go for their jeans :) They fit me perfectly and they always have the best washes too ^^ Love this black pair on you! I need a new pair of black jeans, as the color of mine has faded almost entirely to grey. I can't access their Black Friday 50% off sale, but they offer 30% for us Europeans too ^^ Gap Rules! xo

  7. I will probably buy on line too. I am telling you I think i will unsubscribe from Kate Spade.
    Marvelous look ! I really like how that vest looks.
    Oh and that Willis bag seems more tempting everytime i see it..

  8. Once you discover black pants, so many new outfit possibilities open up. Honestly, I couldn't live without a good pair of black pants in my wardrobe - or several. They're perfect for work on days when a skirt just seems like too much effort or the temperature is too low. And they just look so gosh darn good with navy; at least, I think they do. I love how you styled yours :)

  9. Yes, black pants are very versatile! Love your whole look! kisses

  10. This outfit is perfection My Dear!!!Happy Thanksgiving weekend:-)!!!

  11. Simple, basic, comfortable, great outfit for the holidays. :)

  12. Ooh, those pants look great! :D I should rethink black pants again :)

  13. Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!!!


  14. I love this quilted leather vest, you look great!!!!

  15. Love the vest and sandals!!!

  16. I went out on Black Friday just to buy myself lunch for a one-man study date. It was less busier than usual, so that was rad. But stores? Nope, nope. Not even gonna dare.

    I love all the black leather here, Lydia! Those strappy heels are too perfect.

  17. Your black pants are fantastic! I can see why you love them so much! They go with so much! Love the styling, you vest is awesome!


  18. Hope you managed to do some online shopping in the black Friday sales! :)

    Nice practical pair of black pants too, good bargain! :)

  20. A good pair of black pants is so bard to find. I've got two I love and hope they never wear out.

    I don't go out for the sales on Black Friday either but have gone at midnight before in the suburbs, which I thought was fun. I've always thought a girls night midnight shopping sleepover would be an awesome idea!

  21. Beautiful! Love that you found a pair of black pants that are comfy... I can never seem to do that. Thanks for the recommendation. :)



  22. This would be a great outfit to go shopping in, with flats instead of heels. I love your quilted puffer vest; it looks so sophisticated, compare to other puffy vests I've seen.


  23. Fabulous vest - perfect with the striped top.

  24. I'm all about the black pants. And I love that vest on you!
