Stripes and floral


Sometimes I'm surprised by the outfits Josh likes best. He said this was one of his favorites out of my recent outfits, and since he tends to like it best when I wear jeans and a t-shirt, I think that means he's finally coming around to my slightly offbeat styling of dressing. It only took four years.

I found these floral pants at H&M a few weeks ago. They make my already large hips look shockingly large, but they're such fun pants that I don't care what they do to my figure. Sometimes I just want to wear a piece of clothing because I like it, not because it flatters my body.




Striped shirt: Old Navy
Floral pants: H&M
Black flats: Kathy flats from ShoeMint
Red hat: Nine West, thrifted from Village Merchants
Spider necklace: Bauble Bar
Black flower bracelet: possibly "borrowed" from my mom

  1. AAAHHHH, be still, my beating heart! those pants just might be the best pants ever made. there's no h&m around here, but in the next few weeks chris is taking me about 2 hours south to do some birthday shopping (where there is an h&m) and you better believe i'm looking for those!

    1. Aren't they great?! Also, they were only $14.95. I thought I read the price tag wrong when I first saw them.

  4. As you know I'm a recent floral trousers purchaser too, Stacey - these look fabulous on you and there's nothing even slightly large about your hips: you really are perfectly in proportion from head to toe, you lucky girl! They look great with the jacket too, love it :))

  5. You look great in these pants and its funny how we picture ourselves. You don't have big hips and I agree with Catherine, who is quite slim, that you are very well proportioned. One of the reasons I enjoy your blog is that you look so good in all your clothes.

    1. You're so sweet! I agree, our perceptions of ourselves are funny sometimes - generally people are a lot more complimentary to me than I am to myself. And I should fix that! But learning to love the way I look is quite the process :)

  6. I'm glad you bought them anyway, I feel the same way about printed pants and every time i try a pair on hate how huge I look.

    even though when i look at these photos, i dont think "wow her hips are huge!"
    i completely understand how you feel and how they aren't the most slimming pants for us girls with curves!

    1. And I love my curves! But sometimes they make it tough for me to wear certain things.
