Hello beautiful! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a nicely stuffed and relaxing 4-day weekend.

Although I love over-the-top prints and opulent embellishments, sometimes it’s good to stripped back to basics with a monochrome palette of black and white. After my H&M trousers started sagging in the rear (wore them only twice), I have been looking for a nice form fitting pair of high-waisted trousers and found the perfect pair at American Apparel this weekend. I love the high waist, pleat detailing and the perfect length that (finally) didn’t require hemming! These pants will be a wardrobe staple of mine that I’ll be wearing with a variety of blouses, tees, sweaters or crop tops. Let’s hope they won’t stretch or sag like the last pair. :)

Happy Monday!
