Print Heaven

And now for the second pair of Evans trousers! I suppose I don't read descriptions very well when online shopping (and I don't know what materials are what anyway!) because I thought both the Evans pants were the same. However this version has no stretch and are made from a shiny material. If I'm honest I prefer the other pants (shhh, I don't want to hurt these pants feelings...), but these were still fun to wear, even if a little less comfortable.

Blouse: Country Road
Kimono shrug: Belle Curve for Myer
Shoes: Target

I decided, rather than picking a colour from the print, to go with this silk powder pink blouse. The pants have a lot of autumny colours and I like to think the pink takes me back to summer and lightens up the outfit. It's an expensive 100% silk blouse, however I barely wear it. It has cute puff sleeves that unfortunately seem to want to sit anywhere but my shoulder. I kind of get turned off a top when I look down and have what looks like a third boob sitting on my chest...

I um'ed and uh'ed between a blazer and this lace kimono shrug and in the end decided to go with a more hippie vibe which the floral print lends itself to.

I am obsessed with print pants lately! Summer does seem a strange time of the year to indulge the obsession but with all the great harem and slouch-fit pants around right now it's possible to wear pants and stay cool. Now all I need is someone to pay me to look good and I may be able to feed my addiction with some (all) of the following options...

Sequin harem trousers: Charming by Jessica Dee

Strangely I was day dreaming about sequin harem pants and damning the world for not letting me find them in my size when Jessica released these! She's just relaunched her label and she's got great style so I'll definitely be keeping an eye on her. As soon as I have the money for a deposit I'll be snapping these up (please don't sell out, Jess!).

Trousers: ASOS Curve

I've loved these for a while now but I've withheld because I have a fair few slim leg print trousers. The print reminds me of the curtains of a 19th century brothel... and I love it!

Jeans: Nordstrom

Big bottom? Large thighs? Well apparently you're not allowed to wear white jeans. Pfft screw that, these are adorable!

Pants: Forever 21+

These look super comfortable and remind me of my Estelle pants, which ripped in the crotch despite being loose and too big! These could replace them very nicely...

Does anyone love print pants as much as me? Do I need aversion therapy...?


  1. Wow!! Can't wait to read the whole thing.

  2. Gorgeous pair you got there! I love how stylishly forward they are!

    I just bought my first pair of printed pants - a pastel-vintagey kind of floral print.
