Sharing is Caring.

Ashley from Two Eyes in the Mirror

I’m still super ill, and putting that together with the jetlag from my long weekend of flying, I’ve hit a brick wall. I simply do not have the energy or the immune system to wear anything other than pyjamas today. As amazing of an outfit photo that might produce, I thought I’d share with you a little something else. When I lived in Korea, I bought these amazing trousers at a market. Floral. Baggy. Elasticated waist. The kind of trousers that only old ladies cool people purchase. Cool people and me. Perfect, huh? Now, you may or may not know about our clothing swap, The Lovely Ones. It is a slow-growing process involving a group of us bloggers sending our clothes to each other, and seeing how they’d style them. Almost a year ago I took these pictures with these trousers, but no-one really wanted to try them out apart from the lovely Ashley from Two Eyes in the Mirror. The first picture is of myself wearing the pants, and the second is her. For the full post on how she styled them, click here. It seems we both went for black as an accompaniment to the colourful pants. What do you think? How would you style them? Would you even wear them?

    You guys both did an awesome job styling them! I actually might have tried them with a cream colore top, or maybe mustard yellow or hunter green. Hope you feel better soon!!

    Dear Urban-Decay-Mascara-Buddy,
    I will answer in a list (because I LOVE lists ;))
    1- I LOVE the pants!!! The two of you pull them off brilliantly! And indeed, the only way to wear them is with black, because they’re bold enough!
    2 – Thanks for your sweet comment! I didn’t think my darling Aurรฉ would be such a perfect model, but she’s got the genes!
    3 – I’m glad you got to explore the East Coast! Did you stop by “my” Washington, DC? If you ever do, I’ll give you all my best shopping and eating spots! ๐Ÿ™‚
    4 – I’m really glad to speak to you too! I got to look at your blog and older posts with more depth (aka stalking… LOL) and I really love your style, your writing, your personality, and your experiences! I’d be really interested if you’d like to guest post, perhaps on your latest trip to America… maybe something about fashion through the eyes of a British girl ๐Ÿ™‚ Email me if you’re interested:

    Love love, (hope that comment wasn’t freakishly long!)

    Oh, I nearly forgot, you’ve earned yourself a spot on my honour list (blogroll)! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aw feel better! I think everyone around me is getting sick (that time of the year I suppose) โค

    If I saw these in the stores I would never pick them out to try on, but after seeing the both of you rock them I might be tempted to buy ! x

    So exciting that you’re picking up your boyfriend at the airport this week ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’ve heard a lot of great thing about Into the Wild, maybe I should watch it tonight!

    i think they’re awesome and i like it paired with a black top to help neutralize the busy print!

  23. Thu October 19, 2011 at 12:13 am #

    Those trousers are awesome. I love the fit and print of it. The variations between the tops are so unique and awesome.. You really rock this look! Thanks for sharing.

    I think you and your friend wore it really well, and created a chic and laid back outfit with this cute printed pants. It may probably look like just grandma pants on me, I’m short and small and don’t have the face for this pants, ha..


  25. megan October 19, 2011 at 7:38 am #

    These pants are so fun! I think you have both styled them so well as you cant do anything to over the top as their so loud. I would pair them with my black clogs and a black blazer. I would definitely wear them.

  26. Laura October 19, 2011 at 12:06 pm #

    I think these pants are absolutely amazing! I was just too scared to have a go styling them, you both did a awesome job though ๐Ÿ™‚
