Taste{full} Fall Must Haves- Crazy about Cords - Pretty Real

Taste{full} Fall Must Haves- Crazy about Cords

12:39 PM

So the must haves continue. One of the things that get me gaga for fall (lady gaga has absolutely ruined the word "gaga" for me. Much like Obama ruined the words "hope" and "change," but I better move on before the hate mail starts rolling in...) is corduroys! I don't know if it's the 7 year old school girl in me or what but I have always, always loved cords. Fine wale, wide wale, whatever wale you choose! Now I have never owned a pair of skinny cords but that is about to change as soon as the Old Navy package arrives on my doorstep.

The awesome thing about cords is they give your wardrobe a bit of variety. Typically (especially in the colder seasons) I'm wearing dress pants for work, or jeans. Well I can totally get away with wearing Cords to work and it feels like I'm wearing jeans; even better, on the weekend, I can throw on a chunky sweater or vintage tee and cardi and I'm ready to go and feel so....FALL. And as with everything, tuck it into a pair of Uggs and you're golden.

These are the Old Navy skinny cords I ordered. They arrived last night and I ♥ them. The only problem is they run really small. So if you order them, order up a size. Besides that, I love the velvety fine wale texture, the length (they come in petite and tall), and the price--$34.50

Personally, I feel like a boy when I try boyfriend but some people pull them off beautifully. I love the color of this Banana Republic pair almost enough to make me try the cut. They are a little pricier at $79.50 but in the world of fashion and fashion magazines, that's still pretty cheap (though in my world it's not, so if it isn't in your world either, don't despair. I'm right there with you!). However, right now they are having a 20% off sale so it would be a good time to buy!

If you're not into skinnies or boyfriend cut, here's a great flared option. At $36.90, the price is very reasonable. They come in sizes ranging from 1 to 25 in three different inseams and four different colors! I mentioned in my "lux for less online" post how much I love Alloy due to their amazing size selection.

Happy Shopping!
