Sally: If you don't own J.Crew's black Pixie pants, run to your nearest store and snatch some up. I own two pairs and wear them at least once a week. Basically, they're glorified leggings. My other staples include white, cotton v-neck t-shirts from J.Crew and their skirts. I go with comfy ballet flats for work since heels aren't practical for teaching (my day job!), and the Ali Ro anorak is perfect for Texas's mild early spring weather. The wild nail polishes are a favorite since they keep me sane after the stress of real life.
