If I were to say the phrase “work pants” you gals would know exactly what I am referring to….

…Those basic black pants that you wear on weekdays only to the office. They probably are a crappy fit, crappy material, and you wouldn’t every consider putting them on when you are out of the office. Am I right or am I right?

And while I personally don’t have a need for “work pants” in my current wardrobe rotation, there was a once a time that I did, so I totally understand the situation. Recently, while shopping at Nordstrom, I stumbled upon these black Rag & Bone pants that actually made me mad….WHERE WERE THESE PANTS WHEN I NEEDED THEM? Not only is the fabric is the perfect amount of thickness & stretch, but they fit like a legging & look like a pant….HI, DREAM COME TRUE WORK PANTS…YOU REALLY DO EXIST!

And in typical Courtney fashion, I took them home with me in a desperate personal wardrobe challenge to figure out how else I could wear these perfect pants in my day to day life….CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! To my surprise, I was thrilled at all the ways I could wear them, (SO, YOU’RE SAYING I ACTUALLY DO NEED “WORK PANTS” IN MY WARDROBE AFTER ALL?!) from out at night with a sassy black top (they replace the black leather leggings!), to running errands on the weekends (they replace actual workout leggings!).

So yeah, even though I don’t have an actual job that calls for “work pants,” I’m excited to have found some pants….

….that work!
