My Go-To Pants for Fall

A number of you reached out this week about the pants I’m wearing in the lady jacket reel I posted. Pants, typically, are torture for me to find. I have a normal-sized waist, short legs, and a big booty. So when I do find pants I like, it’s a huge win! Here are some of my favorites for fall.

Mother Denim Hustlers: I bought mine at Lillie Alexander in Lake Forest. If you have a chance to go in and try on a bunch of jeans to find your best fit, I highly recommend you do! The women who work at Lillie are great at helping you find your most flattering. (I wear a size 28 for reference.)

J. Crew Slim Wide Leg: These are a more affordable option than the Mother Denim and give a nice polished look. (I wear a size 28 for reference.)

J. Crew Sydney Wide-Leg Pant: Love these so much I have them in two colors! (I wear an 8 for reference.)

One last pair of jeans I’m wearing in the reel are from Veronica Beard and they fit like magic. I bought them at the end of last season on sale and are a favorite! They’re sold out now, but I’m hopeful VB will bring them back. Be on the look out for these Grant Wide-Leg Jeans with Patch Pockets.

  1. I love your blog AM! But especially this one as you know my ♥️ too will always be with our ND. But these last 2 games were so hard to watch! Love Eddie’s story. Can’t believe he will be graduating already. Life goes fast with lots of winding twists & turns- why I always tell my kids to have a “Plan B” ready. Lol. I am still in Marco-helping clients sell & buy their pieces of Paradise. Stay well! ♥️Lisa
