After a brief warm-up this weekend, temperatures seem to have dropped to a more permanent fall–it was 40 this morning! But since temperatures are still warming up in the afternoons, layering is definitely a necessity. Isn’t that truly the beauty of fall anyway?
These navy cord skinnies are 1 of 3 of the exact same pair of pants I own. Seriously. I had my eye on them when they first hit the J.Crew factory website last winter and when they went on sale, I immediately snagged this coral pair, partly because I loved the color and partly because it was the only color in my size.
Fast forward to Christmas time and my mom, after seeing my pair, decides to order the same skinnies in a soft turquoise. And then after falling in love with hers, I manage to score a pair in the same color when J.Crew releases more of my size and drops the price even further, prompting my mother to purchase them in my original color. Finally, I noticed a navy color that hadn’t been posted before in my size and of course, decided to get that pair too. Why not, at that point?
My parents are currently renovating their bathroom/closet area, so the other day, I get a phone call from my mom wanting to know if she purchased the coral skinnies or if that was just her imagination, so she wouldn’t waste time hunting them down if she hadn’t. But since I had been so obsessed with these pants, I knew she had…and that we had two matching pair!
Long story short, a great pair of cords goes a long way in your wardrobe so share the love when you can! I am so hoping they release them in a maroon color this year too to round out my collection.
