Evidently Cinco de Mayo is on my mind. This week’s outfits scream fiesta! But before I go any further, I’d like to give the lovely Tamryn of Wanna Be Fashion Blogger a special shoutout for introducing me to these frilly pants. Now who’s the “wanna be?!”
I have a thing for pants. I would choose a pair of funky trousers over a skirt or dress any day! It’s probably because I’m so active and they’re easier to move around in. Anyway, this pair reminds me of my favorite televisions series, Dancing With the Stars. I have been a fan of frilly costumes since season one so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered this pair. Despite my admiration for the show, you’ll never catch me on the dance floor. Sadly, I have no rhythm (insert laughing emoji). We’ll call these pants my “everyday pair” instead!
Frilly pants are awesome for many reasons…do I even need to explain?! The high waist, however, is at the top of the list! High rise garments give you options. Dress them with a crop top for a playful ensemble or not for a classic one. But aside from outfit options, they give shorties like me long legs effortlessly (after the tailor chops six inches off, of course! #shortpeopleproblems). For today’s look, I styled these suckers with a long sleeve crop top of a similar tiered design. It is a lot of fabric but I love how the ruffles create movement on the upper and lower half of the ensemble. Sometimes less is not more. In true “over-doer” spirit, I polished off the look with pearl embellished sandals, shoulder dusters, and a chunky side braid.
Where will you spend your Cinco de Mayo? I’ll probably go to Tia Margarita again. Shop the post:
