All At Once | Work Neutrals OOTD

It has come to my attention that sweatpant trousers - not silky trousers, but basically formal trousers with a sweatpant waistband - are currently a "thing", and that they are perfectly acceptable to wear to the office. Um. I want them all, in that case. These are Zara and you're going to have to pry them from my cold, dead hands if you ever want to take them away from me. I'm serious. This is serious.

I'm also noticing as I write this that I've essentially taken all of the acceptable "neutrals" in the current fashion landscape and thrown them together in this outfit. Black, grey, brown, navy. Does it still count as a neutral outfit in this case? Or have I created some sort of fashion colour theory paradox? 

Anyway, back to these pants for a second. They are cuffed, tapered, and effortlessly slouchy in the thigh/hip area, which is my favourite silhouette right now. It magically makes little ol' me look taller, and I'm always there for that. Also, pockets.

I kind of feel like I'm shoving my LV Speedy in your face here, and it was entirely unintentional. I never tire of the Damier Ebene print, but seeing it in every shot here is a tad overkill, no? Sorry. I will instead draw your attention to my beautiful wool blazer from J.Crew that I bought online on sale. It's their Schoolboy fit, and it's amazing for petites. Here I'm wearing a 0, and I could have managed with a 00 as well; overall I find this style to run a bit big, so if you're interested I would suggest trying on some sizes in-store first if at all possible. The wool is warm and luxurious and the navy goes with almost everything I own. Major score!

What are your thoughts on sweatpant trousers? I think they need to stay, because holy comfortable pants, Batman! I'd love it if all of my work pants were like these.
