OOTD // That Wide Legs Pants Craze

Top & Belt: H&M   Pants: Target   Shoes: Just Fab
Loose, loose, loose - apparently that's the biggest trend for Spring 2015! What a change too, huh? Which I am quite alright with, because loose = comfort to me. However, the biggest thing to keep in mind is that proportions are still important. So if you're wearing billowy, wide-leg pants, for example, you want something that will still show your shape on top. That's what I did, and I really love what this turtleneck crop top does for me! 

I picked up these printed bottoms from Target on a whim since the daisies were so cute, and who could say no to $12 comfy pants? Not I, that's for sure! While I'd normally wear this with a tank top or preferably something crochet to really go with the summery vibe, I realized I still don't have my spring/summer wardrobe with me. However, it works out since the weather here isn't exactly full on spring mode just yet. While the sun's been out most days, a chilly breeze sends me scurrying for layers. Instead, I decided to try a monotone look, another trend I hadn't risked yet. 

Killing two birds with one stone with today's outfit, aren't I?
Also, I decided to get creative with my makeup and did lilac lips with NYX's "Power" shade! What do you think? I know it's a bit light for my skin tone, but it's such a fun shade, I couldn't help but like it - especially when paired with a touch of purple around the eyes!

I'm scrambling to keep my energy and motivation up, because there's only two more weeks of regular classes left for this semester! AHHHH!!

Now excuse me while I go take a nap...

YAAAY for school almost being done! And check you out tackling all the trends ;) I seriously can't get ENOUGH of the wide leg look. I've loved it for years but it was always hard to find a none-hundred dollar pair, so now I've been buying as many as I can haha. My bank accounts not happy. I love how you paired it with a turtleneck- that was such an unexpected move but it's so incredibly stylish. I'd totally glance at you twice if we passed each other. #girlcrush

I think this is such a classy look! It's funny how a trend that resembles pajama bottoms is actually pretty cute.

And yes to the colored lipstick! I never say no to a purple lip.

Good luck with the rest of your classes. YOU'RE SOOO CLOSE!

Loving the loose pant trend, you're rocking them here! Plus yes, so much more comfortable, which these days is my main goal when getting dressed! ;) And best of luck with your last two weeks. You got this!! xo

Keit said...

Haha, oh yes, loose is my favorite shape for clothing! :D And those pants are 12$ you say? I wish we had Target here as well :(
You look like an ice queen with this lippie, definitely like it, don't think it's light.
Also, good luck on the semester, not that you need it, you're kicking ass I bet :D

I think you might be on of five people on earth who can really pull off purple lipstick - it looks pretty awesome on you! I also love your all purple look but what really kills me is the belt with the pants, that is just . so. perfect. It makes me think a little of an awesome sixties, Austin powers babe but in all the good ways!
Wide leg pants are really a nice change from skinny jeans, they're super comfty and chill looking. I've only found one pair that really works for me but I think I'm gonna go for the flared pants this year.(Haha, short people problems.) Super cute look all the way around, I always enjoy seeing your fun makeup looks as well!

You seriously look amazing in this monochrome outfit and those wide-legged pants! I wish I could wear them too without looking like I'm drowning in fabric!
