You got me! I stocked up on palazzo pants. I’ll admit it. Here’s why: I like wearing baggy jeans (preferably boyfriend jeans) and that’s just not conducive to a corporate environment, even on casual Friday, know what I’m saying? So… rather than comfy jeans, I loveeeeeee to wear palazzos. (Also, it’s summer and it’s hot.)
I debated on my styling today because this muted floral print is not something I’m used to doing. Yes I have lots of garments with patterns and print, but typically I go BIG. This pattern is small and busy. It’s got all these muted tones: brown, taupe, cream, black, and even a drab cornflower blue in it! I was about to give up on them (because I thought they only looked good with this blue graphic tee from J. Crew, which definitely wouldn’t have worked for the office) but then I found this embellished tunic and thought to myself… I said “Self, you should go full on 70’s today!” So I did. Groovy. Unfortunately for me, when I got to the office, everyone was standing around chit-chatting so my outfit received a department-wide critique. Whatever. Fine by me.
Now, Bear calls palazzo pants “butt pants” for reasons I can’t exactly understand because they are so loose-fitting, but regardless, I think it’s a good thing.
