On most days you will find me in a pair of skinny jeans, a top and some kind of heels. I probably own more pairs of skinny jeans and pants than anything else in my closet by a long shot. That being said, I’m never one to shy away from trying something new!

I haven’t worn wide leg pants in ages. I recently gave flares a shot and after that very positive change in my regular line up I figured it was time to give another silhouette a try. With a belted waist and a cut that sits slightly higher on the waist, these pants are a new addition that I’m loving.

For the top I wanted something slightly cropped, so I pulled out the lace top from a matching set that I have but also found a few similar ones as well. The end result was a look that’s definitely more feminine and can easily translate for dinner out with friends! Swapping in a white or cream top and nude heels is an easy way to lighten things up a bit for a more casual daytime outfit as well.

This week totally flew by! I found myself for the first time in a while feeling like Friday came much quicker than I had expected and even a little behind on some of the things I have going on. I’m really, REALLY excited about an announcement I have coming up on Monday – so much so that I’m going to change Monday’s post from the 5 Happy Things next week. Can you guess what it is?

    I’ve always been cautious about wide leg pants since I’m petite, but seeing how gorgeous you look in this cropped pair I may have to change my thinking. Since the leg is not too wide, the proportion works so well. The colour looks great on you, especially combined with black, and the bow adds a pretty detail. A really nice look Christine.

      Thanks Deb! I agree.. the cropped version makes all the difference. Hope you’re having a great start to the week!
