The One That Almost Got Away

When I missed the floral pant boat earlier this year, I was crushed... The H&M pair I had my heart set on sold out in a flash.  So I told myself I'd pick up some cute floral shorts for summer and call it a day.  And when that didn't happen, I buried my floral dreams and mourned with a bottle of wine.... all the while telling myself I was much better off without them, that I could do better, and that I didn't need them in my life.  And only after I had completely gotten over them did they show up. And as those old feelings came back, I knew I had been lying to myself.  I needed floral pants just as much as I needed the other 15 unplanned items that left with me in my Target bag that day :)

Oh Gosh, you're to funny! How did I miss those pants at Target? Are they a new find? I love them.

The pants are too adorable! I'm loving grey right now, especially with bright accents.

OMG...love those pants! I'm just now warming up to the floral pant look and have decided I have to have a pair. The pair you have on are fabulous and the fact you bought them at Target makes them even better. I hate to spend a lot of money on a trendy piece and I have a feeling in a few years, we'll all be going, what were we thinking with floral jeans???? For now, I must own a pair! LOL!! If you get a chance, I'd love for you to check out my Colored Denim post. Your newest follower!

I did the exact same thing this spring/summer! I never bought them and was so ridiculously broken up about it, and then I started seeing them everywhere again. Woo hoo! I LOVE yours and I love the yellow bag with them!

TheTinyHeart said...

I've seen these floral pants on a bunch of bloggers and I'm tempted to buy them. I too completely missed the floral pants bandwagon!

I totally bought these same floral pants at Target! Aren't they fun? And like you, they probably didn't really need to end up in my bag that day, but I'm so glad they did!

Rachel Lynne said...

LOL Heather, your posts crack me up EVERY DAY! :) Love the story :) And hey, you know, most things, mourning or celebrating, are great with a bottle of wine ;) And don't you love Target... $100 later you come out with lots of goodies and you forgot the $10 worth of things you were supposed to get ;)

GLAD YOU FOUND THESE! They are super cute and fit you perfectly! You look amazing! Can't wait to see you later :)

I never jumped on the printed denim trend, but these pants are really adorable. You pull them off so well! And they're a fun alternative to classic jeans. Adding the nudge wedges as a great touch! Glad that you were able to snag these pants before they were gone!

THOSE ARE FROM TARGET!? omg! So cute!! I missed the boat too, but looks like you found some just in time. I need to spend more time in the Target clothes section because I never seem to find amazing items like those!
