granny pants take 1: an outfit post

i really shouldn't be unfair and call these granny pants since 1. they do not have an elastic waistband, rather a zipper and hook & eye closure, 2. they don't have the crease perma-made down the front of the legs, 3. they don't smell like powdery musk, and 4. they're navy and not a pastel shade. they are polyester though, so there is that. and static. still, i think high waist pants are going to take some getting used to. to be honest, i always thought that part of thrifting was off limits until i saw monkeyface wearing vintage high waist pants a few months ago, and voila, a whole new world of thrifting possibilities.

the comfort begins here - blouse: express, pants: vintage/thrifted, necklace: i made it, ring: c/o lola and george, shoes: payless.

i really didn't plan to do another outfit post today since i swear i have other things going on in my life other than getting dressed, but i needed to get it out of the way because of some change that's going to happen, only i can't tell you what hat change will be until a few days from now. hello, vague information. until then, i hope you have a great rest of the week and weekend!

  2. those poor pants, calling them granny pants. that was actually the first thing i thought when i saw them "those aren't granny pants" they are super cute! i think you just need one of those cute english taxi driver hats and you would look like your from the 40's, it would be so cute! love your sexy leopard shoes too!

  4. CHANGE! I can't wait to see what you're talking about. Comfort is defined as high waisted pants. Love those suckers.

  5. I agree with CB! They're not granny pants! They look awesome on ya. Probably on someone else's body [me] they'd look like a grandma version of something but you, ROCKIN' it. Love it!

  7. You look amazing! I'm always so afraid I can't pull stuff like that off, like there's some secret police deciding stuff I can't pull off. <3

  11. high waisted pants = super comfortable and nice that they don't slide down your ass. with that said, i am incredibly jealous and have been searching for a pair of pants like those having wanted to wear something besides jeans all the time. the search will continue and maybe until i find my pair, i will live vicariously through you and yours1

  27. Oh geez, that ring is insanely gorgeous!

    I'm a big fan of granny clothes, although I always feel bad referring to semi-ugly clothes as granny clothes, because my grandma actually dresses very nicely. (Possibly better than I do.) Not that your pants are ugly - they're very cute! But the granny clothes I buy - well, they are kind of ugly sometimes :)
