Hi, guys!  Meet my new favorite pants!  Yeah, I know.  This is about the 7,142nd pair of favorite pants this season, but really, guys ... this time I mean it.  I picked them up at The Rag and Bone last week between meetings.  I spotted them on a rack during an earlier trip and they got into my head, man.  I couldn't let them be.  Then, I tried not to get my hopes up, not knowing if they would fit.  When I tried them on in the fitting room, I squealed with delight as I closed the waistband.  They.  Were.  Perfect!

The little explosions all over them seem fitting for summertime, no?  And since John is adamant about not wanting to see fireworks, this may be all I get.  (Seriously, before we went to the baseball game the other night, he practically had a sit down with me, making it clear that in no way, shape or form were we staying for fireworks.  Who doesn't like fireworks?!)  Anyway, I digress...

Know how much I love these pants?  So much that I couldn't bring myself to hem them and chose to wear wedges instead.  That's love, my friends.  And just look at them move:

  1. these pants ARE awesome. you have been rocking some pretty fabulous pants these past few months, but i think these take the cake.
    plus there's some magic going on that's making you look especially tall and slender--i don't always think of pants as slenderizing, but these look unbelievably fabulous!

  2. love the way you rock those pants...

    Bones is great show!

  13. Amazing pants. They actually reminded me of dandelion fluffies, which is also totally fitting for summer.

    Also, you inspire me to wear more pants. I love pants but I feel scared to pull them off most days. You always make them look so cool!

  14. I love your new love affair with pants. It makes me want to love pants. But I'm afraid.
    How do I overcome this fear oh wise pant wearer?
