...To those who wait.
I have been smitten with floral denim/pants since they made their debut back in early spring.
Well, maybe even before then if you count the ones I had when I was a kid. I owned a pair with flowers AND flamingos. Mom picked those bad boys up at Weiner's. Anyone out there remember that store and it's wretched smell?
Anyway, I just couldn't seem to find a pair that did not accentuate my muffin tops, look like they were painted on and didn't cost an arm and a leg. I am
pretty sure positive that floral pants are a short-lived trend, so I didn't want to spend more than $40 on a pair. I know, you probably think I am cheap, but I prefer to refer it as being budget conscious.
I had all but given up. I couldn't find any that fit my budget, fit my body or fit my taste. And another requirement is that the floral had to be subtle. Is there such a thing as subtle floral pants?
Just when I least expected it and removed this desire from my mind, a cute pair appeared out of nowhere at the greatest store on the planet...TARGET!
Yes, you read right. I found them at the one and only Tar-jay. Guess how much they cost. Are you ready for this steal of a deal...$20! I know, I couldn't believe it either.
I did not set my hopes too high because I thought they would be like all the rest...not worthy.
But, ladies, these are more than worthy. They fit perfectly, are light weight (it's HOT here), hide my muffins and give me room to breathe! Hallelujah!
I can't wait to style them with my riding boots and a big sweater. Or with a blazer and flats. Or with a tank and flip flops in the spring. Yep, I think these could possibly be a staple.
I am sure I will look back at this blog one day and say to myself, "What the hell were you thinking wearing those God awful pants." But, right here, right now I like them. I like them a lot.
So, what do you think about the floral pant trend? Is it too far out of the norm for you? Or are you taking the risk and running with it?
Happy Labor Day Weekend! Be safe and have fun!
