Hi, wait don’t get lost just yet! Do you own a pair of wide-leg pants/jeans? I’m a proud owner of two pairs of pants and one pair of jeans. I was skeptical to purchase the second pair of pants because what if this is just a trend that is about done with?
Nah! I think wide leg pants are here to stay. I had women always asking me while I was at Madewell if I think the trend was staying around and if it is worth the money to buy a pair. Wide leg pants are so flattering and perfect to wear to work opposed to a tradition skinny work pant. When I first purchase a pair of wide-leg pants I thought I had to wear them with heels and only girls with more height could wear them with flat shoes. As I became more comfortable wear a non-skinny jean I started experimenting with a flat shoes. The Key is to make sure the pants hits above your ankle. If it doesn’t look for a petite size option or get the pants hemmed!
With the popularity of the style, you can really pick a pair that reflects your personal taste.
What to look for when shopping:
Back pockets! It’s a balancing act. Look for a larger pocket.
Stretch. You want enough stretch to sit but not too much that the pants stretched out on you. Try sitting in the dressing room.
Color! Olive is a popular color for spring and great to wear into the office. A striped pair will look cute in summer with a white baby doll tee.
Every week here on The Style Paige a segment called Weekly Favorites (or something more creative and cute once I think of it) will be posted. Basically it is anything and everything worth sharing! Podcasts, books, food, fashion, celebrity new, and so on. First up on the list a podcast.
You can listen to this podcast on the app on your phone called Podcast! I have been listen to this particular podcast for about 2 years now. This episode tells a beauty story about a French women who didn’t stick to what society told her she needed to be. It is in French so you have to listen to it told by the translators unless you speak French, which I do not! Wish I did…
Spring is around the corner even though the freezing temps outside say other wise… Anyways I personally love to buy a few key pieces to refresh my sweater filled wardrobe. This romper is for sure on the list! Favorite places to shop for affordable spring items include Zara, Madewell, H&M, and Free People.
OMG I LOVE THIS SHOW. You can stream the entire first season on Hulu. Second season begins on April 7th. There are only 8 episodes in season one so don’t watch them too fast like I did. Killing Eve is one for the books between the fashion and suspense it will for sure be one of your new favorites. Not going to lie I have a girl crush on Jodie Comer now.
I have been using this backpack for almost a year now and I’m still obsessed. It so convenient especially if you live in a city. What you can often find me carrying in my backpack: laptop, wine, pickles, jackets, and normal purse stuff. It’s the kind of bag that looks better with age. When shopping for a backpack make sure to buy good quality leather.
After asking many people and looking through Instagram I finally decided to purchase this highlighter. I like it because it goes on nicely and also makes a nice eye shadow. Highlighter is my jam right now. If you have a highlighter you just love tell me in the comments! A girl can never have too many highlighters. Now I just need a brush but don’t want to pay $32….

I graduated with my accounting degree and currently working at a desk job doing yes accounting… I also have a side gig as a stylist for StitchFix. Way more fun! Just trying to find my corner on the internet with this here blog. I will be dedicating a tab of the blog to all things San Francisco! What to do, eat, and drink (mostly beer) here in the city since I’m new and everything thing is still shiny and bright! My apartment is tiny, over priced, and filled with my 3 cats and my boyfriend all of which are super cute. I’m just trying to find my corner in the digital world of blogging.
Here is a picture of all three of my cats!
When people have cats they immediately have to show you a picture. There is a reason I have three… For another post!
