Finding Love in Dress Pants








Imagine reading this in a very excited voice, okay? I FINALLY found dress pants at a retail store that come in talls and are under $30. Magical moment right here. Spoiler alert: they’re from Target!

Do you know how hard it is to find good dress pants if you aren’t the average height for women? My petite friends and my tall chicas, rejoice, because I found the golden ticket (at least for me – and they come in shorts and regular sizes too), and now I don’t have to pretend that my black jeans are my black dress pants at work.

They hit a little high on the waist on me, but I’m okay with it because 1.) it makes my legs look a million times longer in these photos and 2.) I’d rather have them high than low-riding in the business arena. Plus, under $30? Hallelujah!


  • On Target item: Merona Dress Pants (exact – comes in 3 other colors too)
  • 3/4 Sleeve Tee: Merona, Target (similar style; similar color)
  • Necklace: Target (exact, but there is black, ivory, and blue too – buy one, get one 50% off)
  • Heels: Merona, Target (exact – 20% off too!)

  • I really want a nice pair or two of black dress pants to wear to work, so now I need to stop by Target to try them on!! They do make you look really tall!
