the triad

The Limited Ankle Pants + J.Crew polka dots I mentioned last month that there aren't many things I really felt like I "needed" to add to my closet (because lets me honest, I have more than enough clothes!). I tried to think about what I felt like I was missing, and what pieces would get the most wear, and I knew that full length slim ankle dress pants were something that I would wear a ton, both this year in school and the next few years on rotations.

I didn't plan on finding a pair so soon though! 

My girlfriends and I stopped at our small local mall the day before school started because we were still freeeeeeeeeeeee...and because The Limited was having a 50% off everything sale. I found these pants tucked in the corner in the way back of the store, but was pretty excited about them since they were exactly what I was looking for. They come in tall lengths which means they actually go all the way down my leg, and the stretchy material makes them comfortable while still looking professional enough for school. I should be all set on school pants now!

On a side note, I found this red dress from Target online which could fulfill the red dress part of my wish list. I ordered it in a few sizes just to try on, although I'm afraid that it's going to be too short (it looks slightly short on the model). I'll be sure to post more about it next week for my budget recap (probably on Wednesday!).
