AJ Wears :: Trouser Jeans

Fun fact time! About 7 or so years ago, I was a manager at The Limited. I'd say about 70% of my closet was Limited by the time I left, including a gorgeous pair of trouser jeans in a teensy size 2. Life happens and I eventually grew out of those amazing jeans, which were absolutely perfect for work, weekend and beyond.

When I saw these at The Limited last week, I almost couldn't believe it. The cut has modernized slightly, but the bones are still there. A deep blue wash, pleated front, and a fabulous wide leg (at 40% off, of course). Paired with my favorite Schoolboy blazer from J.Crew? Fall work wear magic, people.
