Flowered Pants Down

Posted by writergrll. Comment (0).

Yesterday I used the above image as the inspiration for my outfit.  I liked the way that the blush blazer slightly dressed up the flower print pants even though she’s wearing it with a basic white blouse and flat sandals.  I felt like I could accomplish a similar look and feel with my flowered pants.

Although the color palette of my pants is quite different from the inspiration I still think that I created a similar outfit.  I went with a khaki blazer and brown ballet flats, however.  I waffled between going with the color of the blazer in the original photo–blush pink or with the structure of a blazer.  In the end, because the blush colored cardigan that I have is a thick and fuzzy sweater material I opted for the blazer.  I was going to try for my cognac heels but I just couldn’t talk myself into it even though I thought they looked awesome.  A gold watch and bronze feather earrings finished out the look.

I liked this look and I received 2 compliments on the flowered pants.  But, I thought that it looked better in person than it photographed.  I was a little sad reviewing the photo’s for this post.  Also, at some point during the day– perhaps while I was taking my afternoon nap, the seam below the zipper came un-sewed.  I’d say split but that sounds so dramatic.  It’s bad enough that I use the belly band to conceal that the fly of my pants is completely open and the waistband is folded down under my belly.  So, I had no choice but to change my pants for my evening class.  This is probably the last wearing of the flowered pants for the rest of my pregnancy and maybe ever.
