A few weeks ago, Jarrad and I went and saw “The Book of Mormon”, and as the weather is noticeably cooling down, and I ALWAYS freeze when I’m sitting at the movies or in the theatre, I wanted to wear something that covered my legs. Jeans are too casual for a show, and I love wide leg pants (they look so chic), so I started keeping my eyes peeled for a pair I liked.
You guys know I have such a soft spot for pretty colours, and pink in any shade has always been a particular favourite of mine. I first saw these pants on someone’s Instagram, worn with a matching jacket of the same colour, and they certainly packed a punch. I’d been wearing so many pastels through summer that I decided it was time to switch it up a bit, and off I went to find the pants.
I originally tried them on with the matching jacket, and then dismissed that outfit. I’d only seen the jacket worn as a top, without anything underneath, and I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing that, although I do admire people who can pull it off. Instead, I opted for a structured, boxy white shirt to juxtapose with the flowy fullness of the pants.
The next week, I had to go to Sydney for a day for work. I knew I’d be on my feet the whole time, so I’d need to be super comfortable. In the end, I decided to pack my new favourite pants, except this time with a white linen top, and sneakers instead of heels. I actually liked it so much more than the original dressed-up outfit, that I decided to share it with you guys.
