Patterned Pants outfit

I haven’t ever been a huge fan of patterned pants. Not because I don’t like the way they look on others, but I always felt like they highlighted the area that I hate most about myself (errr my thighs). I’ve been through a lot of ups and downs in my confidence surrounding my body since starting this blog, but one thing is certain now, I LOVE my thick legs and I am not afraid to dress them in patterns.

I love this pair (that I got for $10 by the way, STEAL) because they are so easy to pair with a black jacket, white blouse/shirt and booties. By the way, yes I am freezing in these pictures and YES I absolutely threw back on my big puffy coat after we took these.

Also, I know I keep saying this, but I swear it is true this time. I am really excited to get back into outfit posts. Between being busy, taking more time for myself (and spending more time in the gym), the cold weather, my lack of motivation and the style slump I have been in for over a month, I am finally feeling like I’m getting back to it! I apologize for being not as interactive over the past few months. Even though I might not comment, I still try to visit all of my favorite blogs throughout the week!

    Printed pants are so fun. I really like these on you! And I can sympathize with the style rut. I’ve been in one too. I’m blaming the cold weather!

    This year I have kind of say DAMMITALL to pants and just gone with patterns. I HAATTTEE shopping for pants. Nothing kills your spirit faster than having to go up 4 sizes or more for a pair of pants.

    I had the same problem for the month of December and most of January. It’s so damn cold. I cannot do outfit shots in minus two degrees! In the mean time I have finally caught up on reading the backlog i had going on at bloglovin.
    Your pants are so cute! I love a good pattern, and you have a fantastic figure Rachel! Never be afraid to show it off!

    I stink at outfit posts lately too–it’s just so hard to stand outside in something when it’s SO freezing out. You look so cute though–these pants are fun!

    Those pants are so fun! And I love how you styled them…spot on. I’m with ya on the outfit posts! I’m ready to move onto spring outfits, but there’s snow on the ground and that really doesn’t work haha. I’m glad you’re feeling a little more inspired though! Hopefully spring gets here soon 🙂

    I love your patterned pants too. The colors are great! And $10! That was a real steal. I mean at $10 you should have bought them in every color. That is if they had other color options. I use to not like patterned pants on myself either, but lately I am coming to terms with them and have even been looking for a pair of patterned pants for myself.

    Excuse me, gorgeous girl, these pants look KILLER on you! 🙂

    Are you ready for some spring weather or is it just me? I’m ready for the snow to melt and the temps to rise a bit so I can start breaking out the spring stuff. 🙂
