Do you remember the palazzo pant? Well, I sure as heck do and I sported them many moons ago. You know, back in the day of middle school and high school. Some of you may or may not have even been born yet.

Anyway, did you happen to know they are making a comeback? This trend is one I am pretty pumped about because let's face it, colored denim is fun, but it's about to get hot up in here. I can't bare to wear much denim in the spring and summer, so this is a refreshing option if you like your legs covered. And I am one to cover up my stems until I have a chance to hop in a lawn chair and catch some rays.

Back to the word palazzo pant. For some reason, in my head, this name is a little wack. Just like I refuse to call my chambray shirt a blue jean top. If you ask me, it's a lot more fun to give our clothes fancy names. 

So, I am choosing to remove the term "palazzo" and insert the term "resort" because when I wear them I kinda feel like I am headed to some sort of exotic beach to sip on an umbrella drink.

An added bonus...they feel like pajama pants. Who out there longs to slip into PJs as soon as the day is done? This girl sure does. Some days I don't even take mine off.

Take notice next time you're out and about. I bet you spy these little pretties and see a lot more of them as we head into the warmer months.

**********************************************************************

Speaking of trends, I have a buddy of mine today that is killing a trend....the trend of living a healthy lifestyle and on a mission to lose 100 lbs. I think this girl already deserves a round of applause. 

Meet Miss Katie from KTJ Weighing In

It takes a ton of courage to be forthcoming about your weight, no matter your size. It takes even more bravery to write about it for all the world to see. This is why Katie is such an inspiration to me. She is not afraid to share her weight loss journey, struggles and triumphs alike, with other people.

And she is not just gabbing about her own personal story, she is reaching out and making this a place of community. A place where women of all walks can band together to get fit, healthy and lead an active lifestyle. Her and a blog partner have teamed up for a weekly 5K Challenge link up and on June 1st will be hosting a virtual 5K. Pretty freaking cool right?

I encourage you to head on over to Katie's blog for some serious motivation, heart felt reading and just to tell her that she is empowering women all of the country to strive for better living.

Today, Katie wants to share her passion by giving away a "Finally Thin" by Kim Bensen and a $15 iTunes gift card so you can add some jams to your workout playlist.

These pants are so flattering on you - they make your legs look a mile long. I am not sure if you are a tall but it makes you look really tall too. I never got into the printed pants trend (too bold for me) - not sure if I am ready for resort pants.

Love this outfit! Those pants are CRAZY but I love them! I really do like the blazer and the top. I love my black blazer so much--I wear it a lot! I have a couple white shirts to wear with it, but I like yours better :)

How fun!! My mom loves palazzo pants, but her version is more sweat pants than cute resort pants...so I'm going with your wording! Those look SO comfy but still airy enough to wear in Texas this summer. FUN!!!

Those pants are AWESOME, I love the print!!

MerciBlahBlah said...

Get OUTTA here with those pants. No, seriously. Take them directly to the post office and mail them to me.

That is all.

Rachel said...

Love these pants on you- I could NOT pull them off!

Tracy Walpole said...

I think I want to marry those pants. How was I JUST in F21 and didn't see those?

Katie said...

what fun pants! and of course you can pull them off and look great! and i like resort pants :)

Anne said...

You are a rockstar. Period.

I would've seen those pants & turned the other direction, but the styling you've done kicks ass.

As usual.

Have a great day, Shanna!

Loooove those pants! I tried on a pair last week but I was waffling about them so much I didn't buy them. It always worries me a little when something is so comfortable, like, can it really be that comfy AND cute?! But, you've answered that with a resounding YES!

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

I think I would look totally awful in those pants. I am afflicted with my mother's flat butt, which would not make a flattering visual from behind!

Lauren said...

You look so great in those pants! They kind of intimidate me though. I feel like I would look so silly in them, but I should probably try them though before making a decision, (especially since they sound so comfy)!

Those pants are fabulous. I really like them, and I'm usually anti-print!

Those pants are so fun and look so comfy! Definitely look like a fancy, comfy, pair of PJ pants :). Even it doesn't get incredibly hot here until July, I like having different types of bottoms to replace my denim with! Wonder when these will hit stores near me!
