Out of the Ordinary

pants

Yep, it's true.  I'm wearing pants.  This isn't a very common occurrence but I felt like challenging myself today and pants was the best/hardest way to do it.  Not only do I think pants make my hourglass figure look misshapen, but I have a hard time putting together a cute outfit that also feels feminine.  I'm most comfortable when my legs are free from constricting jean material so you can see why I considered this a challenge!  Either way, I was up for it and I feel this outfit is feminine enough for me.

Top- c/o August Wrinkle
Cardigan- New York & Co. (remixed)
Pants- Zara
Shoes- Target
Belt- Forever 21
Necklace- Gift

The way I chose to make these pants look feminine was the addition of a lace peplum top and a great pair of wedges.  I think this top from August Wrinkle is so pretty.  I especially love the deep scoop detail in the back.  My leopard wedges are a summer staple, but this warmer weather has me pulling them out a little early this year.  How do you like to wear jeans?  And how would you dress them up?  I'd love to hear your suggestions!

  1. That lace top is SO pretty! I wear jeans allll the time in the winter...I find it's just too darn cold for skirts/dresses!

  2. I loveeee tops with scoops in the back like that. And this is ADORABLE. I can't wear pants either - it feels wrong! You still look great in them though

  3. Oh, this is the frist (or second??) time I've ever seen you in pants. You look cute though!

    Huh, now that I think about it, I tend to go very classic- button-ups, plain Ts with boot-cut or wider legged jeans or cigarette pants- or boyish- a blazer. If they are skinny jeans, I like to pair with something a little more flowy on top.

  7. OMG, I don't think I've ever seen you wear pants before! I think this outfit definitely shows off your figure and the lace top makes it so feminine! I love black jeans because they feel more sophisticated than regular denim. Such a cute look!

  10. I think you look amazing in pants as well as dresses, you could rock anything lady!!! I have issues styling pants to, but forcing yourself to do it makes it easier and they can be so damn comfy sometimes. I am loving the lace peplum top and those leopard print wedges are to die for! You look gorgeous as always :)

  14. haha when I saw the first picture before I even read it I was like "wow I think this is the first time I've seen her in pants!" but I think they look great on you and you definitely did a great job making them look feminine! I'm the same way, I could go weeks without wearing pants and never even realize it!

  16. What you did here is soooo cute! I definitely wear dresses more often for the same reason as yours, but skinnies look really nice with heels!! That top is soooo adorable too. I love the pants from Express, they feel like jeggings but look like jeans :) Comfy!

  19. you look GREAT in pants my dear you should wear them more often. I agree though that they often feel constricting but sometimes I need a change from wearing cute dresses or tops with skirts and jeans or pants look good with almost anything! I hope you have a great weekend
