The Pants & Stripes . What I Wore

May 2, 2012 separator Fashion

Those pants? A recent acquisition. I love them to bits. They’re J.Lo for Kohl’s. I realize I probably don’t have sufficient “junk” in my “trunk” to wear anything bearing her name on the label, but I’m gonna rock ’em proud anyway. 
The necklace is from my best friend. She had the vintage pendant put on a chain for me, and it makes me happy and reminds me of her every single time I wear it, since I hardly ever get to see her these days. 
The rest? Check it out after the jump! And thanks to The Mister for being a patient, fun photog for my ever-awkward self!
And thanks to that train for not hitting me. I love you, too, man…
I recently got these prescription sunnies (because I’m terrified of contacts…) from Eye Buy Direct*, and I was worried that they wouldn’t be big enough, but I think I’m satisfied!!! I think that pants this big and billowy need a little bit of structure up top, and this shirt had that with the shoulder and the tuckage. Yeah – tuckage. The act of being a tucked shirt. 
*They’re not paying me to write this. I’ve bought six (yes, six) pairs of glasses and shades from them in the last few years, and I’m in love. Use the code IFPMHJTHJZ for 15% off, and I’ll get five bucks in credit. Or don’t use the code, but I still recommend them! 


  1. Thanks, everybody! And yeah – I go into full “flight-mode” when I’m standing on train tracks and hear that big whistle… ;D

  2. Those pants are FIERCE. I need to get myself over to Kohl’s ASAP!

    I love the pic of you running from the train – ha!

  3. LOVE those pants!
    If I weren’t so short I would rock a pair of wide leg pants. Alas, I am cursed to be petite forever.

  4. so pretty! love how you pulled those pants off, with flats no less. gorgeous! great to discover your blog via IFB.

  5. I have to say you are totally ROCKING these wide pants.
    I find that the do not suit everybody.
    but you wear them well
    I really love the style of what you decided to wear for this shoot.
    very chic

  6. haha kitblue – No, I wasn’t intentionally channeling MJ, but that’s not the first time I’ve heard that today! Unfortunately, I can’t sing or dance like he can though… lol

  7. I LOVE this look! Those pants are probably my favorite…J.Lo for Kohls?! Wouldn’t have guessed it. They look great on you!

  8. I love this outfit! I have thought about perscription sunnies as well although I do wear contacts. I LOVE the vintage pendant!
