A Classic in Stripes & Wide Leg Pants

Friday, May 10, 2019

I got 4 photos in (translation: one pose with variations of the head tilt) before my camera battery died. D'oh! So sharing 2 photos today is probably overkill, but what the hell... my profile actually looks fairly nice?

For the longest time, I was a firm believer in wearing wide-legged pants that skimmed the floor. Because god forbid I get mistaken for wearing high water pants. (TMI maybe: I would actually Clorox wipe the hem after a day of wearing pants that touched the ground). Perhaps I know my germaphobe tendencies aren't going away any time soon, or simply seeing more catalog models looking amazing in their wide-legged pants that do not fully cover their shoes (shout out to Ann Taylor and J.Crew!) I'm inclined to believe it's the latter. I think the key is to thread that fine line between wearing high enough heels and pants that skim just the top of your foot.
