OOTD- I've Got the Vibrant Thing

Have you ever set an item of clothing aside for some kind of repair (broken zipper, hemming, sewing on a button)? How long did it sit in the pile? I absolutely love these tweed pants, but the hem came loose on one of the legs. I've had them hanging in my closet for at least a year before I finally got them fixed. How ridiculous is that? I'm sadden by the fact that I've been missing out on all of this tweedy goodness. At least they made a timely debut and all with the wide-leg trend back on the scene.

Are you a big fan of the wide-leg pants? I love the look of crisp white, long pants with a white blouse. It just conjures up an image of yachting or vacationing on some beach resort town. So fresh, so clean. However, I have my hesitations. Once when I was about 8 or 9, I went to an outdoor event with my mother in some really wide, flowy pants. A bee decided to take that as an invitation and flew up my pants leg and stung me. I was truly traumatized that day and now hate bees and prefer skinnies. Thanks Mr. Bee!!!

  1. Ha! Funny story! I am dying for a pair of perfect wide leg pants. Love the bold blue!

  2. Yes, I am a big fan of the wide leg pants. I really want a pair for this season.

    And don't let Mr Bee prevent you from wearing some wide leg pants.

  3. I have a pile of fix-its that I haven't gotten to in a long, long time.

    The blue looks awesome on you!

  4. that blue goes so well with that teal! love!

  5. I love this look! I usually have a dry cleaning pile that sits for months. When I finally do take them to be cleaned, it's like shopping all over again!

  6. you did good here. i love the your style.

  7. Love that royal blue color!

  8. AAHHHH, the bee story sounds so scary! I would've been traumatized too! You look GORGEOUS in wide-legged pants, though, so I'm glad you decided to not let one lousy bee ruin the look for you forever. The tweed fabric is wonderful!

    Also, I have something sitting in the "to hem" pile and it's been there for 6 months now...

  9. Love that royal blue color!


Leave your thoughts after the beep....beep. I love to hear from you!
