What I Wore Wednesday and My Pants Obsession

Welcome to my Weekly WIWW post!  Every week, for several months now, I have been taking pictures of my outfits and joining the WIWW link party with The Pleated Poppy.  These posts are something that I really enjoy, because I have always had a passion for fashion.  I love putting together new outfits, and shopping my own closet to wear things in different ways.  This past week was my last week of work until August, and I spent it working in the permanent records room, so I was not wearing much of anything blog worthy.   I only have a couple of things to show you, but here it is anyway!  Hopefully I can get myself together and have more next week!


I think this was the last day I actually put an outfit together for work.  Orange pants are from Urban Outfitters.  They no longer sell them but here is a similar pair from JCPenney, and they just happen to be on clearance for $14.99!  Here is another similar pair at JCrew Factory.  The navy ruffle tank is from Loft a few years ago, and I still love it!  Tiered ruffles hide everything!  Cardigan is borrowed from my daughter. 


And since, then, I have kind of been dressing like this.  And this is actually the only outfit I would have even taken a picture of to be honest.  It is dirty working on the records room.  And no one sees me.  I do like my new black seamless yoga capris from Target.  I will wear these things out!  I like the gathered detail at the knee. 

I bought this T-shirt at Gap a few years ago, I like the high heels!


And this is a blurry picture of Miss 18 Year Old singing at her senior showcase last week.  I loved the dress she was wearing, so I wanted to show it to you.  she recently bought this at Forever 21 in NYC. 


Since I don’t have many outfits for this week, I thought I would share a little obsession I have right now.  Back in the 90’s these were big and I remember owning several pairs.  I loved them, and I am so thrilled to see them making a comeback!  Wide legged pants!  Or what we called them in the 90’s was palazzo pants.  Who remembers them fondly?    I swear, I could never have enough pairs of these pants!  Here are a few pairs that I have been coveting.

Rules of Etiquette Palazzo Pants available at #Nordstrom

Trendy Pants - Skinny, Palazzo & Printed Joggers: Charlotte Russe

I created a Pants Pinterest Board with some other pants that I am digging right now, and I will be adding to it when I find other’s.  What do you think of this trend coming back?  They are so comfortable and forgiving.  And I think they look great on both shorter and taller people.  They are kind of like a maxi skirt in that regard.  Have you bought a pair of Palazzo pants yet?  I recently bought a pair

Thank for joining me today for my WIWW post.  We are leaving for a short trip tomorrow and won’t be back until Sunday night.  So I won’t be back with a new post until next week.  Have a great hump day, and see you next week!
