It’s kind of hard to find a good trouser pant – especially for work. Typically when I’m thrifting, I have to sort through hundreds of black, wide legged trousers from Express or Walmart before I find one that has a good cut – let alone, fits me!
Since establishing my goal to only buy made in USA when shopping new, I haven’t visited a lot of places I used to frequent. And I used to typically always get my work trousers at Zara because they always had a modern cut that also came in fun and interesting patterns/colors. I don’t buy them new anymore, but do occasionally come across them while thrifting luckily. It’s just one of those things I had get used to giving up since shopping this way. But I can appreciate what I did have – in fact, most of these are from before I lost weight, so I had to get rid of them anyway. I will say this though, my one pet peeve about Zara pants were the lack of belt loops most the time! (they only have belt loops if they came with a belt, otherwise they had to fit perfectly!).

Same pants as previous post, I really like mixing them with this orangey color!
I went through this pleated pant phase, glad they’re not in style right now!
Yikes, another pleated pair!
I’ve replaced these with a similar colored denim pant, but I sure did love these khaki ones!
Even my black trousers were awesome – they had this cool color touch when they were cuffed
And this is back in Las Vegas! These too were pleated, but the material was very thin – perfect for keeping cool-ish in the summer when we still had to be formal at work.
This is from 2010, and well, I guess I’ve just always had a thing for green Zara pants!
These remix posts never fail to make me terribly miss my long hair!!
But I realize that giving up shopping at places like Zara, H&m, Forever 21, etc, means that they amount of what is considered “trendy” type pieces has drastically decreased from my closet! So by the time they filter down to me in a thrift store, they’re technically not trendy anymore – so I’m generally looking for pieces that will become long time staples in my closet instead!
