The Printed Pant

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend and all the mama's had a relaxing Mother's day Sunday. I have to admit I spent part of my Sunday working. But I really enjoyed it, there is this perfect mixture of working and relaxing that I can achieve sometimes that makes it feel wonderful. I think it's the no-stress-attitude that makes the difference. It might have helped that we feasted the entire day too. Lots of fresh berries with crème fraîche, a kale and red onion quiche (with gluten-free crust!), bbq chicken with roasted potatoes and pistachio ice cream for dessert. I also got a book that I have long been waiting to get, Beautiful Ruins, but for now it's going to have to wait for me to have some time to start it (I know you're not suppose to judge a book by its cover but this one is so pretty! I can't wait to read it.).  

Also, when I have a little more time to indulge myself, one other thing I must do is shop for some pants. I wear leggings so much it is kind of embarrassing. If I stumble across a meme about how "leggings aren't pants" I turn beet red even while sitting by myself in front of my computer, because I totally wear them as pants (with long shirts of course, but still. I know it's a problem I must face someday). At first I wasn't sure how I felt about all the printed pants I have been seeing for the last several months but they are really growing on me, like I want some now, growing on me. I can say I am still not convinced that they are best for my short stature but I am kind of falling in love with them. What do you think about the printed pant, a yes or a no? I am thinking #4 would be a good start for my transition phase.

  1. Leggings ARE SO pants! I'll defend that to the death, if I have to get dramatic. If leggings aren't pants than I go pants-less probably once or twice a week. And always on the weekends. I need to talk to someone in charge, that's a lame rule!

    Oh, and I like #7 the most!

  2. Those pants are gorgeous, but I'm too short and squat to pull them off, I fear. So I should probably pull them right off and put them back on the hanger. Sigh. Why can't I ever have any fun? Still trying to develop my personal style, I suppose. ;)

  3. No shame in wearing leggings as pants if you wear a long shirt! It's when I see leggings paired with a tube top that I think I'm seeing too much. I adore number 5 - what a lovely pattern! Number 3 is so lovely too, but so feminine - I sometimes fear that I can't get away with something that girly!

  4. Well, here's some news that may make you rest easier, I learned from Ruth that the "leggings aren't pants" rule is when women where leggings with short shirts (ones that don't cover their bum). As long as you're wearing the leggings with a long shirt that covers a good portion of your bum, you're good to go. (I can't tell you how happy I was to learn about this distinction.) I buckled and got some printed pants. The ones I got are like pajama pants and really comfy. They also have a black and tan print, so they aren't too, too crazy. I like the pair you have your eye on.
    I don't think I got the chance to wish you a Happy Mother's Day. Sooo, happy Mother's Day, Christine! A blissful day of creating/working doesn't sound bad, especially when you add to it all that yummy food.

  5. 1, 3 and 7 WILL be mine. Somehow. These are so perfect in summer (H&M seems to be doing some really awesome ones at the moment). The whole leggings as pants debate has me laughing out loud. I think it’s ok with a long shirt but lately, I have seen girls wear tights as pants. My husband and I got stuck behind a lady pushing a pram up a hill, wearing tights as pants (she might as well have been wearing no pants) and it was like watching a car crash, we knew we had to look away but we just couldn’t.

  6. First of all: Happy belated Mother's Day! Second of all I am wearing leggings right now (typical) haha! Course I am pregnant, but I swear it is a ridiculous habit to kick when you are not pregnant! And WHO says leggings aren't pants. Sheesh. I do like some of these prints...number one is super cute, I think I could manage those. :)

  7. I love combining work with pleasure too. Those are my favoruite weekends in fact. :) I'm afraid I can't work the printed pants. :(

  8. It has taken me this long to finally give in to leggings. I'm a fan and could definitely see myself living in them too. I don't know if they are for my body type, but I really like the printed pant trend.

  9. I haven't really gotten into printed pants yet but you're making a very convincing argument.

    I hope you had a wonderful mom's day!

  11. I def am loving my printed pants phase! Currently I'm obsessed with my "suble" brocade design pants (colors: white/soft pink/light green)and they r SO COMFY that I would wear it every day if I didn't worry about being know as the crazy lady who doesn't change her pants here. Here's a peek (yes, comfy enough to climb on a dining table with them): http://instagram.com/p/YbaP2PoAXc/
