Printed Pants – Take a Walk on The Wild Side


This is an exceptionally weird What I Wore Wednesday.  It’s not so much the clothes, but the actual photos that make these pictures freaky.

I wish they were outtakes, but they are not.  I have one shot of each outfit and I’m talking in most of the photographs, with my hands.  Let’s just agree that I’m odd.

I’m joining The Pleated Poppy in What I Wore Wednesday, a blog phenomenon that was designed to inspire women to get dressed.

Ya, sorry.  That’s my robotic side you’re seeing.


WIWW:  Flower Printed Pants

Shirt:  Hand-me-Down,  Pants:  Kohl’s,  Shoes:  Target,  Necklace:  Kohl’s


So what do you think about printed pants?

Obviously, I am a fan, but I understand not everyone wants to wear an old tablecloth on their bottom.


Printed Pants?

Yes or No


Wedge Sandals Target


I love these wedges.  I bought them at the end of last summer in Target.  They were on clearance and I could only find them in a 1/2 size too big.  I bought them anyway.

I’m a little dangerous in a heel, wedge or not, so things can go from stable to shaky without a moment’s notice.

I may have fallen off a curb, my flower clad body flung into the middle of the road, while I was wearing these shoes.  Or maybe that was all just a bad dream.  I’m sure it must have been a dream.


Fashion & Style:  Black & Denim

Pants:  Same as above (Kohl’s),  Shirt:  Hand-me-Down,  Flip-flops:  Wally World

I feel like this was a week for jeans.  I’m not sure why.

Jeans aren’t my favorite thing to wear.  I always need a belt to keep them up and I hate extra buckles and things.  I do like my comfort.

These jeans really don’t have any stretch in them.  I’m trying to decide whether I like that or not.  In some ways, I think it’s good, because the knees and bottom don’t get stretched out three times too big, but some days, stretch is pretty dang comfortable, saggy knees or not.

Blue flowered dress Old Navy

Dress:  Old Navy,  Leggings:  Kohl’s,  Sandals:  Famous Footware (I think) in Georgia


I wore this dress on Mother’s Day.  It was freezing.  I wore a gold sweater with it, but I should have also added socks and boots.

I wore gray legging, because I’m down to only a gray pair now and I popped a hole in my navy tights, so it was an easy decision.  I’m not sure if it looked good or not, but warmth trumps fashion in my life.  Always.


Red Striped GAP dress

Dress:  GAP,  Boots: Dr. Martens

I’m trying to get better about taking pictures every day, no matter how completely dorky they happen to be.  Have you noticed?

This day, I opted to show off my ghost white legs.  I should have worn tights, because it was cold again, but I guess at some point, I’ll need to let my legs see a little sunshine.

And that is What I Wore this week.

I’m thinking I should rename this series Dorky Fashion on The Cheap.  What do you think?

Thanks for sticking with me during these “fashion” posts.

    You are so funny! I happened across your blog today and just had to comment. I took my wedge sandles on our beach trip to “dress up” for dinner. I took a similar dive only I fell onto the sidewalk and I just happened to be holding my three year old. I went down and his head hit the concrete…poor thing. He was okay but I felt sooooo bad. Who knew shoes could be so dangerous? I really love the wedges because they are more comfortable and easier to walk in than heels. I’ll just have to let the three year old walk…. I can’t seem to embrace the printed pant. I am very matchy matchy and have a hard time deciding what goes with them but all your outfits look great!

      Alice, my philosophy is, when in doubt, post the picture. If nothing else, it will make other people feel not quite so terrible about posting their lousy photos. ;-)

      I’m sure your new jeans are fabulous. You can always take a picture and see what your readers think. That may give you the boost of confidence you need, or at worst, you’ll know to return them.

    The printed pants are great. The colour that you have choosen is subtle enough to be worn with loads of other things. Definitely don’t rename – you are not at all dorky! Well done on a daily photo too – it is tricky for sure.

    I love your printed pants! I’ve seen some really out-there floral patterns, but the ones you picked are great. Also love the red striped dress with the boots. :)

      Thanks Amanda! I’ve seen tons of cute printed pants and I would probably have more, but I always have problems finding pants to fit well and I can’t seem to pour my legs into skinny jeans. There are a lot of prints in “skinny”.

    I love all your outfits! I actually love the pants with the wedges! They look great together. It’s a little bit of mixing prints too, which is so cute. I think they go perfectly and you don’t need to cuff them, but I’m sure you could for a different look. I love all your outfits!

      Thank you for the honest opinion about “cuffing” the pants. I appreciate it! At first I wasn’t super-sure about that pattern mixing with the shoes, but I was inspired by all of you other mix-n-match girls. :-)

    You look so stinkin’ cute!
    ps, long live the flower pants!
    pps, have you thought about putting one of those clear Dr. Scholl’s sticky pads in the wedges. They wouldn’t show and might make your foot a little more secure in them:) They are too fab not to wear and you’re too fab to break your neck falling off your shoes ;)

    I think the printed pants look great, especially when paired with a classic top like your chambray button-up. My favorite is the orange polka dot top in the first pic though. It’s absolutely darling! You are too cute with your robo-moves!

      Thanks Jessie! Last summer I wore that polka-dot top un-tucked and with no necklace. It wasn’t a reader favorite, but I think I’ve done better with it this time.

      The moves are my inner robot coming out. ;-)

    Cute! You’ve inspired me to mix up my usual jeans-and-a-t-shirt uniform. I love your sandals in the sixth picture. I could never make printed pants look good myself, but I’m not opposed to them.
