Wide Leg Floral

Today is Easter Sunday take two. After church, I changed out of my midi skirt and wedges to something that literally felt like pajamas. We spent the afternoon in the warm sun by the pool. I knew I wanted to wear something comfortable, light in texture and a style that encompassed the holiday and spring season. These floral, wide leg pants were the answer. No questions asked.

The miraculous thing about these pants is that they are not too long. I am 5'7" and was able to wear flat sandals and not have the hem drag the ground. Typically, wide leg pants require some sort of heel. Not these. So, if you are a little shorter in height, these are definitely a pair to check out for the spring and summer months. I must also mention that they are not see through. I was worried that my undergarments would show through because of the lightweight material, but all went well and not a panty color/line was seen.

I purchased these in a size small and they fit perfectly. I plan to find a pink or yellow sleeveless crop for a remix when the temps get a little warmer. I swear, these are the first pair of pants that I have purchased that I actually want to wear every single day. I plan to grab a few more pairs and already added a couple to my online carts.

Whether you are lounging by the pool, headed somewhere tropical, running weekend errands or kicking back on the couch, a pair of wide leg pants are a must for the warmer days of spring and summer; at least they are in my book.

Below are a few other options that I am equally smitten with and all under $75. Let's just say the scarf print pair will be making an appearance soon. So cute, right? Happy shopping!

Kelly @ turned UP to ELEVEN! said...

I am normally not a fan of this trend - the wide flowing pants but I adore this. The colors are amazing and maybe it's because it's floral. Here lots of the ladies are wearing patterns that to me are extremely loud and unflattering. You may have converted my opinion girl! Beautiful!

Always Maylee said...

Not many people can pull off these pants. You look amazing!

Gentri said...

Aw man, I so wish they'd fit me!!! Being 4'8" can really stink. Haha but I looooove this look!

Helene in Between said...

I am 5 2, so even though they don't run long on you they might run long on me, i'm so short! I'd love to try these though!

Unknown said...

Great pants. Loving it paired with the cobalt top.

Ahh you look so cute! I've been wanting to try the wide-leg pants trend, and I'm a little afraid I won't pull it off--but you look so good! I love your color combinations as well.

These floral pants are great! I just did a post with floral pants too! Definitely think I need to give the wide leg a try.

Just wanted you to know...that I totally just bought these pants.....LOVE!

Darcy said...

SO cute!! Looks like the perfect casual outfit!

Unknown said...

I so love a comfy, laid-back but still so stylish look and this one is the perfect example of that. I have stayed away from wide leg pants in flowy fabrics like this- though I love them- because of the exact reason you mentioned. At 5.5' they usually require some kind of a heel and then it is no longer the cool look I want. You encouraged me to start looking again for a pair that fits my height with flats. <3<3 XOXO, Elif

Niki {Glossy Blonde} said...

Ok, I am obsessed with these pants! I am 5'5" so I'm thinking I may not have too much of a problem with the length! I need to go try these on!
