Happy, happy Thanksgiving friends!
It’s very unlike me to post a “regular” post on this day that should be spent with those who bring you love and light—and I have a feeling most of you probably won’t read it today. (ICYMI, I shared six (of the many) things I’m thankful for in Monday’s post.)
Truthfully, I wasn’t even going to schedule this post to go live until next Thursday. However, I wanted to go ahead and get it up for two reasons. First, I know some of you browse blogs today as a break from family and/or on the couch in a post-turkey coma. Second, I wanted to make sure you had the chance to purchase these amazing black and gold jacquard Old Navy pants before they’re gone. And, if I was a betting person, my guess is these pants won’t make it past the Black Friday madness—at least in all sizes, anyway!
Let me just say, I am *obsessed* with these pants—and everyone I passes seems to be, too. The first time I wore them, a woman stopped me on the Metro to ask me where they were from. Y’all, you don’t understand—strangers do not speak to each other on the Metro. This is essentially a violation of the social contract we have one another. When I told the woman I had snagged them from Old Navy, she essentially had to pick her jaw up off the floor, which was the same reaction I initially had.
Old Navy’s deals will fluctuate throughout the next few days, but as of Wednesday evening when I’m writing this—they are on sale for just $20! Since owning these, I’ve worn them to work and my birthday dinner, and am excited to wear them to plenty of holiday happy hours and open houses come December.
I’ve been very impressed with the quality of these pants—they look way more expensive than they are, and the gold pattern doesn’t rub off or fade after wearing. They’re marching washable, though I recommend washing them inside-out on a delicate so the pattern is more little protected. Mine have come out of the wash just fine!
Lastly, these pants don’t come in a petite/short length. However, I found it really easy to simply tuck the excess fabric under the pant leg. Since the fabric is so thick, it stays there without a safety pin or ironing—no need to pay money for a tailor on these.
I’ll let you get back to your Thanksgiving festivities now—but definitely snatch these pants up before they are gone! Cheers! x
