Style Trend: Wide Leg Pants

So wide leg pants have become a thing, and I wasn’t sure how to feel about it. On one hand, they look super chic on basically every IG blogger I’ve seen rock them, but on the other hand, those bloggers don’t have my already wide thighs, so I wasn’t 100% about trying to pull them off. Would they make my legs look bigger? Would the bold pattern draw attention to an area I’ve been trying to mask for some time now? I decided to find out.

I picked these babes up at Target with a matching crop that just didn’t seem appropriate to wear to the donut shop with James last weekend. These have a side zipper and I had to size up one size to make sure they fit properly, but they are very comfortable!

I have to say shape wise I found these wide legs pants to be extremely slimming, it’s almost as if the shape of the pant actually disguises wider thighs and the pattern made my hips look much slimmer than I think they are in regular jeans. haha

Since I didn’t want to wear it as a two-piece set like it came, I paired the pants with a great flowy white sheer top from SheIn. This top was less than $15 and I LOVE how feminine the tiers and slight ruffle on the sleeve makes it! To keep the look super casual I wore my Sam Edelman sneakers and added a beaded bracelet stack to finish it off.

So the verdict is in: Wide Leg Pants are a total win in my book. What do you think about them?

Floral Fabric Pants, the obsession is real.

It’s not too often I can come across something extremely comfortable AND fashion forward at the same time. I like to look casually cute when I walk to the park with Cash, however I also need to be wearing something that doesn’t make me sweat or cause pain so I can actually walk there and back. I found these amazing floral fabric ankle pants at Target, and feel in love instantly.

They are made of a lightweight cotton, and the pattern is so simple, it really goes with anything. I chose to pair it with a basic white tee shirt (H&M $12) and gray cardigan (Forever 21 $9). I accessorized with a fabulously over-the-top statement necklace with great bold coral and lavender stones,  my favorite watch from Frannies and a simple bangle from The Limited.

I got these Steve Madden flats last year at Rack Room on a BOGO deal, and have been using them as my pre-spring shoe all month! I love the woven creme design, and they are super easy to walk in!

Lately I’ve really been into doing different things with my hair since James cut it shorter for me. Today I got really funky with it, and put it up in messy pigtail buns! So fun! And it kept me from constantly getting my hair blown in my face while we were outside today!

The whole look is just what I needed to perk me up out of my mid-week funk! It’s so motivating to go out and do something when you really like the way you present yourself to the world! Just because you’re a mom and need functionality when it comes to your clothes, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice a cute look too!
