Fancy Pants

I liked these pleated high-waist cropped floral (gosh that's a lot of adjectives) pants a lot when I first saw them in the Spring/Summer 08 Sportmax collection. So when I came across these blue floral (and admittedly god-awful-at-first-glance) pants at the thrift store, something about them made the above image pop into my head and I thought: Hmm... just maybe...


It's my first attempt at this look but I'm actually liking the big floral pattern and was careful not to add anything else too busy to the mix. It's always fun to try new things...

They look good on you! I'm digging the comeback of the big florals, they are kind funny to me but also fun. High-waisted pants are such a challenge, I have come across a couple pairs of shorts that I like ok... my biggest problem is that I think they look alright when I'm looking in the mirror, but when I take a photo suddenly they look awful! Haha. I'll wear them, but please, no photos of me in them!

Hi Missa! I really like those pants - you can pull them off in a way few people could (as with so many of your lovely outfits!)

I have given you a blog award for being all-round wonderful - stop by my blog to pick it up!

I think this look is perfect for someone as beautiful and tall as you. I don't think it would fare so well on my 5'1" figure. Do you think high waist are going to make a return?

I can see how the pants might be scary, but you really do seem to pull it off well.

Thanks so much ladies for the pants encouragement. I really do appreciate it!

apron thrift girl: It appears they really are making a comeback :)

I do agree with apron thrift girl on the fact that one does better with these if one is tall and lithe like you are. If I tried these I might end up looking like a 90s socker mom. And may I say again how much I love this on you. It's so amazing!

Those look fabulous on you! I like the choice of footwear, too... not overwhelming at all. Downright charming in fact!

Wow! I would never have picked those up without seeing them on you...haha...I'm more of a neutral tones kind of girl, but those are just adorable. You definitely know how to style pieces. Great look!
