On Tuesdays We Wear Prints.

I apologize for the lack of posts recently - between technical difficulties and traveling, I couldn't seem to find the time to get near my computer.  Nonetheless, I am hoping to get back on track this week.  Today's post topic actually stems from a marathon shopping day I had a month ago.  I was in a mood to update my closet with fresh and unique styles (i.e. no jeans, black tees, or cream blazers).  Throughout the day, no matter what store I went in, I found myself continuously being drawn to anything with a print; more specifically, printed pants.  Whether the style was harem, wide legged, or skinny, I knew these would be the perfect addition to my spring and summer wardrobe.  My first find was an amazing wide legged silky printed pant at Zara (see below).  They were as comfy as pj's but looked as chic as black skinnies.  I immediately tried them on only to sadly realize I would need a 7 inch heel for these pants to fit.  On the bright side, every store I went in thereafter offered a huge selection of printed pants, some of which actually fit the vertically challenged.  I have a feeling throughout summer we will be seeing even more of these printed options in lighter fabrics.  While I will wear these with cropped shirts and wedges (my new go-to options), I think they work well with any simple piece in your wardrobe. Below I have pictured my favorite styles that I saw in my shopping adventures.  These are guaranteed to make you look so FETCH - Enjoy!
