Stranger-Than-Usual Things Have Been Happening

the clothes horse, theclotheshorse, fashion, style, retro, vintageOn rare occasions (like when I know my family is going bowling): I will wear pants. I saw these cords on sale at Urban Outfitters and couldn't resist, especially since they came in cool colors. I'm pleased with these cords as far as trousers go, but even while wearing them I just find myself feeling that a dress and tights would be far more comfortable...they're fun to wear occasionally if only for the response they elicit. Friends and family always like to fake looks of shock and make commentary when I walk into their field of vision while wearing pants.the clothes horse, theclotheshorse, fashion, style, retro, vintagethe clothes horse, theclotheshorse, fashion, style, retro, vintagethe clothes horse, theclotheshorse, fashion, style, retro, vintage

  2. haha, it is a nice change, but it's still definitely your style.
    And I agree, dresses and skirts and more comfortable (with the right underwear and tights of course, saggy tights are awful)

  4. Love your pants style too! And it's still very "you", probably because of the colors.

  5. Hahaha- I got this same reaction yesterday when I came into work with pants instead of a dress/skirt. But hey, it's still your look even if you've change it up a bit with the cords- and it's a really great color.

  6. You make me smile. Also you look ridiculously tall and I love your outfit. Smashing.

  7. Besides the pants, this outfit looks sort of urban maybe because of the hat, which is a bit different. It still looks great on you!

  8. You may not wear pants a lot but it still looks very much like you and your style. Love the colors together. Looks great!

  9. wow I really love these pants :]]
    I feel like a lot of us style bloggers shy away from pants. I feel they don't give me enough freedom to play around and them a little restrictive.
    I find dresses and skirts much more fun and inspiring, but I would definitely love some trousers like these :]]

    I get the same reaction when I wear pants - my friends say "It's the apocalypse!" :p

  16. Well, yes... I do turn my head a bit when you wear pants. And I can see the mock shock your family members would taken on when you do don them...

    But these look really great on you. You look tall and lean and long.

    Your creativity with skirts and dresses never fails to surprise me, but when you wear pants, it makes me think twice about how i wear my clothes, too.

  17. I really love the colour of them, and they still fit in with your style. I remember a time when I'd constantly be in jeans but now it's more of a rarity.

  18. yey! jump for joy! love the outfit too. pants look great on you.

  19. You look so cute! I love that the rare times you wear pants, you still make it look original and very "you." Very refreshing!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Looks great - love those pops of colour :)

    People act shocked when I wear trousers too :D but that only happens on team building trips and heaven forbid I am about to do something sportive. So I guess me in trousers is a bit of a shocker. Don't they just look great on you though!

    ReplyDelete
  21. You look really great in these pants. They make your legs look super long. And it's so funny, because before I took to wearing skirts and dresses more often I found pants more comfortable. But after wearing dresses and skirts for a significant amount of time, I agree, they are more comfortable! Less annoying at the waist and digging in and all that. Though if I wanted pure comfort it would be pajama pants all the time!

    Oh, and I LOVE LOVE the hat.

  22. I am basically the same way. People in my bioengineering class asked me one day why I dressed up assuming it was a pain or uncomfortable and I just was like I think its fun and I find a dress to be one of the most comfortable things you can wear....i dont think they really understood though!

    you do!

  27. It's nice to keep your family on their toes. These are an awesome colour for pants. I'm also loving the purple with the yellow of your hat.

  28. Haha, aww, the feigned expression of shock is a popular response with my family and friends, too -- but not when I wear pants. They usually do it when I am particularly dressed down and look like "the average joe" (whatever that means).

    The color of the cords are amazing; just perfect for the season. And I love the yellow with your red hair. (;

  29. These pants are lovely! I have a hard time figuring out how to wear skirts and dresses in these below-freezing temperatures so I do wear pants a lot, and I think these would be in constant rotation in my closet. I absolutely love the colour!

    ReplyDelete
  30. haha people do the same thing to me "OMG I didn't know you had legs!" hardy har har right? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yayyy pants! Just wondering, do you not wear pants because you aren't comfortable in them, or because you don't like how they look on you? Because they look great, so if its because you arent comfortable would you please tell me why? I would love to know =)
    I think those boots are so cute, they look great with the pants.

  32. @Bellesme, it's a combination. I like the way I look in dresses & skirts better. But I also just find it hard to find pants that are physically comfortable to wear; waists are either too restrictive or too loose...and a whole barrel of other issues!

  36. You look great! I am pretty sure that maroon is a universally flattering colour. Also, that hat is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well, you have a wonderful figure, so you can wear whatever you like! These colours are gorgeous on you too.

  38. I saw those cords online and really wanted them for the colour. I do find cords to be quite comfortable in the winter, as they're actually warm (unlike jeans).

  39. you may as well have been describing me. i HATE wearing pants, and hardly ever do. when such occasions arise, my friends and family always feign horror. dresses and tights are the best!
