AJ Wears :: Wide Leg Pants

I put these pants on last week and I was super pumped to wear some giant wide legs. They flow like a maxi skirt and with the fitted waist and tie suspenders, they’re about as unique as you can get.

And then I walked outside and realized it was pouring.

Since I didn’t want to end up with puddles up my legs, I swapped them out for a pair of cute ankle pants and went on with my day. If you’ve ever had to change due to weather circumstances, you know how disappointing it is. Your second outfit is never as cute as the first one and you spend all day thinking about how you COULD HAVE been cute, but the rain got in the way.

I mean, I wasn’t gonna walk around all day holding up my pants, so I was obviously better off, but still. 

There is no surprise ending to this story. I decided to wear this outfit on a better day. And here it is.

AJ Wears :: Leopard Pants

Well people, I've put my work pants back on. It was a short summer of funemployment, but I officially started back to work last week. Which of course, means work pants.

Things I did not miss this summer: Pants, waking up early, traffic, and pants. Did I mention pants? Yeah, they're kind of the worst.

Unless they're leopard print, of course. Then all pants hate goes out the window. Honestly, these pants are making me hate pants a little less, because they're actually comfortable. But just a little.

AJ Wears :: Wide Striped Pants

I love me some wide leg pants. As a shorty, I can hide some giant heels underneath and pretend like I'm an exotic height, like 5'5" (and three-quarters or something). Bonus points for these pants, which have a delightfully stretchy waistband.

Top, I forgot (similar from Nordstrom Rack).
Pants, BB Dakota (rent them // buy them).
Bag, 3.1 Phillip Lim (similar color from Forever 21).
