Can't Hide the Floral

Hey, look at me, wearing printed pants! I think other than camo, these are pretty much my first printed pants ever. Yep, just call me Miss Adventurous here. I've had small forays into red skinnies, green khakis, and a few other hues before, but when it comes to pants, I'm mostly pretty basic black or blue.

When J.Crew debuted this print a while ago, I adored it but my initial reaction was to reach for the skirt version. So when I finally talked myself into them (with the help of my fellow bloggers - all looking so good in their patterned britches), unfortunately my size was all sold out. I figured it was Ye Ole Gods telling me that those funny printed baggy pants were not for me.

And then J.Crew had a massive % off sale promo a few weeks ago and lo and behold, these pants were in the sale section and my size was magically available. So it was meant to be, right? And maybe it was also meant for me to buy this sweater to go with the pants ... and hell, at this point, the brooch too. The cool necklace from Simply Livly? That was just topping, but made for a perfect finishing point!

  1. So I go on blogging comment hiatus for a couple of weeks and when I come back, what do I find but my stunning style hero ding her thing with accessories once again! Only you, Lisa, can make both a necklace and a brooch look fit and fine together. And those pants? Oooooh, girl! Rock 'em hard! :D

  7. I love that brooch. I'm going to have to check out the Loft if they are caring vintage looking pieces. It looks very nice with the navy sweater too.
    Thanks for sharing,

    1. Good thing printed pants are on-trend right now - I may need to consider more. But small steps for me!

  13. I have some patterned pants but they are not very adventurous. I typically gravitate towards a skirt version when I like a print from J Crew. I think you did so well with styling these pants. Love that you can pull off the necklace & brooch!

    BTW, I host a weekly TBT Fashion link up on Thursday and hope that you will join me.

  17. When this happens I tend to think the shopping fairies were by your side !
    This combo is perfect and I have to say that I really like the necklace + huge pin next to it. In my head it would not work but hell it does, and beautifully!
