On a recent trip to visit my family in Seattle, I was only able to pack a few clothes for myself after stuffing my suitcase with kids stuff! I chose these 7/8 jogger pants (on sale for $30 + available in Petite) since I knew they’d get a of mileage – comfy for the flights, and versatile for both sightseeing and more physically active outings. FYI If your size is sold out, an alternate style is this similar pair that comes in a 24″ inseam for petites – in comparison, those fit a little more tapered and a tad longer on me.
The soft, smooth fabric and cut don’t scream “gym pants” to me, so if your work dress code is smart casual I think these pants would work well on business trips! Below are my sizing notes, and a few ways I’ve worn them over recent weeks:
1. Airport Travel: trench coat, sneakers, cap
Fit info: I took XS Petite (smallest available) and find them to be true to that size. I would ideally take an xxs so these are loose at my waist, but tightening up the drawstring helps a bit. I’ve washed these inside-out many times and there’s been no shrinkage, though I have noticed a little pilling at the butt area that I’ve de-fuzzed using my sweater shaver.
Measurements: When lying flat with the drawstring not tightened, my XS Petite pair waistband measures 13.3″ across (stretches), with a 10″ rise and 23.5″ inseam that was perfect on my 5 foot tall frame. Per the size chart, XS regular has the same waist and a 3 inch longer inseam.
I also wanted to share a note about my Edited Pieces trench – sadly, due to unexpected circumstances we will only be dropping our Reversible Duo Coat 2.0 this year and won’t have the trench coat available. We’re super bummed and are doing our best to have the trench coat by Spring. I’m SO sorry for disappointing those of you who’ve been looking forward to shopping it this Fall!
2. Smart Casual Work: loafers + a sweater
This easy pairing was inspired by one of the photos in the customer reviews. She wore it with a crossbody Lululemon bag for a cozy travel look.
3. Errands: crop trench + sneakers
4. Zoo day: flats, stripe top, sweater jacket
5. Work or Meetings: textured jacket + slingbacks
I haven’t found anything very similar to my older jacket, but this tweed jacket in 3 colors is a good petite-friendly option with a similar fit on me in the XXS.
6. Hiking: sneakers, crop top + sweatshirt
7. Travel home: Outfit repeat
Repeated my first travel outfit, just with a black instead of white top. I also wanted to include a better photo below of how my Naghedi mini bag looks with the crossbody strap, since I don’t think I’ve ever actually shown it! The strap only comes with this size or smaller, I believe. This feature plus the ability of the bag to fold flat into a suitcase was nice for travel!
