Hey everyone! Have you ever put on an item of clothing and just felt different in it? Like, in a good way? I did when I put on these pants. I just felt, I don’t know, more…relevant.
So many of my outfits are practical, everyday work or errand outfits. Occasionally I throw in a fancier item but usually I’m a pretty solid, middle-of-the-road dresser. And that’s ok! That is my style and my life and glamour and impracticality don’t have much use in my day to day. But, when I put on these pants they just felt so different. Yes, comfortable. Yes, pretty. But with the breeze blowing them around so elegantly and feeling so fashionable in them just, I don’t know, brought out something else.
My girlfriend, who I cajoled into photographing me, commented that she never would have paired the pink and orange together, and I agreed, except when I tried on the pants I was instantly drawn to the pink top. I think the result is incredibly natural. I’ve never worn pink and orange together and I’d never even think to try, but the pants just pushed me to try something different. Oh, I get it now. They’re danger pants.
If you read Monday’s post, you know I’m going through a big change in my life with my baby birds flying the nest. I’ve been feeling a little…undefined. But, I think I’m starting to get my feet under me. Yes, it’s probably not the pants, but my own self doing this, though they did get me thinking.
This post got philosophical quick, didn’t it? Just so you know, I usually don’t know what the headline of the post will be or even the content of the article until I start writing. Mostly I just start thinking about how I felt when I was wearing the item, talk about the fit and other practicalities and the words flow from that. I had to keep stopping and going outside while writing this post to examine how I felt and why. Methinks these danger pants may be a talisman for the next phase in my life. Hmmmmm.
In practical matters, I’m wearing petite large in the pants and they also have them in grey and black and plus size. And don’t forget the pockets! You saw this pink top just a couple of posts ago, being worn in a casual way. Here it’s glammed up a bit with a big chunky necklace that lays perfectly under a neckline like this. This is a perfect garden party outfit if anyone is going to one this summer/fall.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and perhaps you’ll find some time to do some fashion philosophizing! Yikes! Try saying that three times fast!
