So I happened to find a pair of wide leg pants that felt doable for me. Granted these photos were snapped pre-tailoring, but it wasn’t anything a pair of heels couldn’t temporarily fix. Another side note: these came as part of a two-piece set, but I truly didn’t need the top half. Luckily a friend was really feeling the top, and we went halfsies on the set. Always think on your toes (especially when your pants are too long), and with another friend’s wallet/wardrobe needs.
Anyways, I did it: I bought the wide leg pants, and wore them. I’m happy about it too. Not only did I challenge my fashion comfort-zone, but I also morphed into a neutral-clad flamingo.
