One Leg At A Time

I think this could be the very first time I am wearing trousers in an outfit post. While my wardrobe is predominantly skirts and dresses, I do actually own a few pairs of trousers, one pair of jeans (which I bought recently and are flared highwaisted 70s dreams) and some other pants I’ve had for years that I’ll wear, say, when I’m walking the dog, cleaning the house…etc. I own these things, and yet they often collect dust or are my ‘I don’t care if they get ruined’ clothes. This is mostly because I don’t really feel much like myself when I wear pants, so they often get ignored as a viable option for outfits. But every time I see that sort of cool, late 60s look of cigarette trousers and a casual untucked fitted top (Mad Men, I’m talking about you…), I wish to myself that I owned more pairs of that style, because those pants actually feel like me – casual, but not lazy, dresses down and yet still pulled together. These pants I’m wearing feel pretty darn close to that style, although I do wish they were a bit higher waisted, but meh, we can’t win em all I guess.

What about you guys?! Do you have an styles you avoid? Things you are hesitant to wear? Garments that collect dust?

      teehee!! thank you!! my wee bum! ya, the pattern is what drew me to them. And totally feel you on wearing pants once a year. Most of my pants I have had for years and just can’t get rid of for whatever reason, or i’ll buy some that I fancy, but feel weird wearing. I’m not sure what is happening, but I’m trying to give pants a go more often these days.
