If there’s one thing that may surprise you, it’s how shy I am in front of a camera. Or rather, in front of other people holding a camera! For the past few years I’ve been chief model, photographer (via tripod), writer and editor of this blog. I love having complete creative control, but it almost […]Read more "this is how I got over my fear"
I know, I know. After our less than stellar summer the last thing you want to think about now that the sun is shining is fall trends. That’s okay – I’m wearing the heck out of all my shorts, dresses and bikinis too! However, it is the right time to start planning for the season […]Read more "why it’s better to be thinking fall"
The age old rock and roll fashion statement is a band tee, and it’s here for fall with full force. While I don’t wear graphic shirts too often, on this particular day I felt like channeling my inner Penny Lane and got really into it.

If […]Read more "how repeating an outfit makes it better"
What a year it has been! January marks 1 year on pantsthatsuck, and I thought I would take this moment to look back through some of the outfits I’ve featured in that time. It’s a strange and wonderful thing to have a catalogue of pretty much everything you wore for 365 days, and to be […]Read more "looking back on 2015"
Two of the most important things while I’m getting dressed. Although I love some looks that aren’t the most wearer friendly, I don’t often opt for putting something on I don’t feel good in. That’s why you see me on here in a lot of sneakers, booties and oversized everything. The […]Read more "comfort and style"
I’m not sure where the saying that you can’t wear white after labour day came from, but I’m not buying it. I think white looks crisp and fresh in all seasons, and these pants with a sweater, coat and booties are totally fall appropriate. As you all know I am […]Read more "winter whites "
Anyone reading this blog knows I love to be comfortable. There is no better way to do this than by wearing sneakers.
