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.
