Two Teens And Their Mama: Skinny Cords

Skinny Cords


Sometimes I get tired of wearing jeans in the winter, and I always fall back on skinny cords.  I wore this tan pair with a wool sweater and a dark chambray shirt.  Comfortable, and most importantly for me, warm.  I added the necklace that I found at the bottom of my purse earlier this month - oops.

Skinny cords also look great with a tunic top and a scarf, or a fitted blazer.




My favorite skinny cords are the Diana fit from Kut from the Kloth.  They come in thirteen colors and have just the right amount of stretch.  Loft also carries a wide selection if you have a curvier figure.

In other news, my friend Carrie, who blogs at A Lovely Little Wardrobe, is hosting Create28 Lovely Looks during the month of February.  You can go to her site for all the details, but there are three options to participate: choose 28 pieces from your closet and create 28 looks, create 28 outfits using as many pieces as you like from your closet, or create a daily outfit from the spotlighted piece which Carrie will post each day.  She will have link-ups throughout the month to showcase what everyone is wearing. Since I'm not buying anything new for my closet right now, this will be a fun way to re-mix pieces that I already own.  I hope you'll join us!

  2. That's a great outfit and smart idea...closet space in our small house is at a premium so creating a smart wardrobe is very functional just because of that alone!

  3. I love cords in the winter because they're a great comfortable way to add some color to my normal jeans and black jeans.
    Nothing more fun than finding a necklace on the bottom of your purse!

  8. Great outfit Lana! Thanks for posting the picture of the burgundy cords as well. I've had a pair of skinny cords that color for a while but haven't been brave enough to wear them... Now I think I will!

  12. That shade of purple looks so lovely on you, Lana! I really enjoyed reading this post and it made me realize I don't own any cords at the moment. Might just need to do some shopping. :)

  13. I really love skinny coords, I have two pairs... one in navy and one in burgundy. I got both at The Gap Outlet and love how they fit. I love how you styled yours with a sweater and chambray shirt w/ boots.

  15. Ooh, those burgundy ones are gorgeous. I'm getting tired of jeans too. I'd never even heard of skinny cords but it makes sense.
