Hey everyone! If you’re a long time reader you may remember these pants that were a find in the spring and featured here. I wasn’t sure about wide-legged pants, especially cropped ones. The “advice” seemed to be contradictory with some saying they were flattering and others saying to stay away at all costs. Like all the “advice” we apple-shaped women, or big-busted women receive, it really depends on your actual, individual body.
But, back to the pants. I am still liking these pants and still think they look flattering even in the winter with boots. I would have featured them earlier this winter but was trying to find olive-colored or blue tall boots to style them with instead of all-black. No luck. These pants are almost a year old, so not many sizes left, but if you’re interested just look for wide-legged, cropped or ankle-length descriptions.
One of you lovely ladies asked me if I ever go to Kohls to shop. Last Friday I posted an item from their dressing room I would have bought if I *needed* it, however this sweater made it out of the dressing room and came home with me! (plus size option here)
I’m always looking for more pattern and color (though this doesn’t fit the color need) to mix up my basics. This sweater adds some pattern without being too far-out. I like the collar and how it falls down the front. I think it also counts as pattern mixing with stripes and dots!
Now, the “experts” advise against wearing a turtleneck when you have a round face. I agree this is not my most flattering neckline/collar but with the January temperatures I am willing to sacrifice that bit of flattery for warmth! Plus, a turtleneck gives a nice smooth canvas to wear a statement necklace.
And yes, those are snowflakes on my “shelf”. I could have photoshopped them out (or noticed them and brushed them off) but I really try to show the pictures unaltered as much as possible. This is my first Monday post so I now have the opportunity to say… have a wonderful week!
