In the days leading up to starting a new job, you will likely find me rummaging through my closet in search of the perfect outfit. Despite having plenty of clothes, I have a tendency to want to purchase an entirely new wardrobe prior to starting a job. This time was no exception.
Since I was starting in mid-January, my go-to sleeveless Banana Republic dresses were out. And the style of my black trousers were looking a bit dated to me. So, I hit up my usual haunts—Banana Republic, Anthropologie, and J. Crew. But, sadly, nothing caught my eye. Until I stopped at Loft and spotted the Marisa skinny ankle length pant.
I love shopping in the petite section at Loft, but I usually don’t have much luck with their dresses and pants (even in the smallest size). But these pants were different. They were tailored in all the right places and I just knew that they would be perfect for my first day at my new job.
When my first day rolled around, I paired my Marisa pant with a blush pink top from Loft, a blazer from H&M, and my patent leather Michael Kors heels. I felt confident and polished all day, and couldn’t think of a better outfit to start off my new job with. I actually loved the pants so much, that I stopped at my local Loft and had them order me a second pair in Forever Navy.
If you are petite and in need of the perfect work pant, the Marisa pant is it. The best part is that Loft is currently running a 50 percent promotion and you can scoop up these beauties for under $40!
