Pants Power

I don't know why it's taken me so long to break out of the monotony of black trousers.  When I got my first office job out of college my outfits were predictable: black dress pants and a top.  And on days I'm late or don't have the energy to think (this happens frequently) - I still revert back to that easy formula.  It wasn't until a few years ago that I finally bought a pair of dress pants that weren't black... and it was a game changer.  There is power in colors - and while this still would have worked with black pants, it's a much more fun look with blue :)

You look fabulous. Love the pants. I have a similar pair but they are a bit too long for me. So I don´t wear them very often :)

Sam said...

Hi dear, you wears these pants so well, wish i had the height to pull a pair like these off, love the colour.

FitTravelerAJ said...

I'm the SAME way! I've slowly branched out with colored skirts, but I have NO fun colored work pants....until this weekend! I bought a pair of magenta cropped pants and I'm excited about them!

Anyway, I LOVE this look on you! Those pants make your legs look miles long, that top is fun with the poofy sleeve and the necklace just pulls it all together. FAB!

Very cute, Heather! I don't know about you, but I can never find really nice dress pants that are other colors than the typical neutrals. I never see bold ones, so I never think to get a pair. But I still love having bright jeans :D Love your fun necklace!

Ashleigh said...

The first pair of colored work pants I bought were actually skinny leopard cropped pants, but I love them! You are right, blue is much more fun!

You always look so good in trousers like this! I'm jealous because they totally overwhelm me, but you look like a tall model in them! :)

Alissa said...

Your legs look a freaking mile long! Oh my gosh seriously those pants are gorgeous!

Daniella said...

You look amazing in blue! Love the classic wide leg shape of your trousers and it adds such a twist with them being blue. Your necklace is such a stunning piece, completes the look perfectly sweetie :)

Take care,
Daniella xox

What a fun, bright color! It took me forever to branch away from black or gray pants as well. It's definitely more fun getting dressed in color!

Alyssa said...

These pants look so insanely chic on you! I think if I tried to wear them, they'd just pool around my ankles and look wacky, but you look so tall and model-esque!

Gloria said...

Oh yes Heather, I am so into colors and trying to stay away from black. I am very surprised about how much black clothes I do own. But I am building up the colors, thrift store by thrift store. hahahahaha. I love these blue slacks of yours and the necklace is way wonderful ! ! !

ooops and we HAVE THE SAME phone. Wonderful.

That is an absolutely gorgeous color of pants. I love your necklace too! It's very easy to get stuck on a particular clothing format when it's easy to get together without much thinking. (The benefits of that include...extra time to sleep!)

I really love these pants, the color is gorgeous! I am guilty of always buying black pants as well or having too many pairs of jeans and not enough trousers in my wardrobe. I am trying to make a change this season. Thanks for the reminder.
