i very rarely wear pants. you can scroll through all of my style posts and probably will only find 5 or 6 posts where i’m wearing pants. (remember this retro jumpsuit?!) i just feel more comfortable in skirts and dresses. i tried these floral ankle pants on at topshop and had little faith that they would fit right. sometimes this style of pants can appear too crotchy (i know you know what i mean.) but these fit fantastic. and to my surprise, were even flattering.

i paired it with a simple pink cropped sweater and metallic heels. and of course a vintage cadillac. the look felt very classic california housewife to me. it actually reminded me of the red-headed gal in edward scissorhands.

we have one more look in the 3-post topshop series coming next week. which do you like better, last week’s fitted green dress or this more casual look? i think my favorite is this look.

    I would have never thought to combine those two pieces in one outfit. you have such a good eye for flair.

    rachel says:

    Beauty! Beauty! Beauty! There’s nothing more I can say. I too am wary about wearing pants that can appear crotchy. You never know since the size can’t tell you the “crotchiness” level. I love how they look. I want printed pants now too!

    Ali says:

    I love it! It reminds me of the Edward Scissorhands lady too. But classier. :)’

    Katie says:

    Love this look! Ha! I know exactly what you mean about pants being crotchy! Such a pain!

    Dominika says:

    I love the outfit. Very cool combination.Pictures are briliant!

    Amy says:

    I love this outfit! I don’t like wearing pants either as opposed to skirts or dresses but I love the pattern on this pair.

    Jillian says:

    Very Peg Bundy, but in a much classier sense.

    AUGUST says:

    I want that CAR!! Ughhhh!

    The silver on those heels really pull the whole look together, (especially with that car). You look gorgeous all your vintage posts.

    khali says:

    Charlotte says:

    They look really good on you… and they look so good with that crop top!

    damn girl! you’re smokin’ and I love the bombshell look! Though if it is “California housewife” then I’m really slacking 🙂
