Goodbye Skinny Jeans, Hello Flowy Cropped Pants!
I used to love skinny jeans. They made me feel sexy, confident and fashionable.
As the years go by, I find my love for skinny jeans diminishing. Sure, I still own a ton of skinny jeans and I wear them weekly, but I don't feel the same as I used to. Maybe it's because I'm getting older, and feel like I need a more professional or "grown-up"look? I don't know. What I do know is I'm tired of constantly wearing skinny jeans.
So I bought new pants. Pants that grown-ups wear. Pants that are flowy and satin. Pants that make me feel fierce. Pants that give me room to breath. Pants that have fun patterns.
Seriously, I'm obsessed with my new cropped flowy pants that have an elastic waistband on the back, side pockets and button details on the front.
I always wanted pants like this, but I never knew how to style them or what to wear as a top. I knew I needed to wear a top that was tighter and tucked in, but I was never comfortable enough with my body to do that...until now.
It's funny because I've gained weight over the last few years, and only now am I finding myself comfortable enough to wear a form fitting top with these pants. It's oddly flattering. I now know it would have looked great even when I weighed less, but mentally I just wasn't seeing myself.
Regardless, you live, grow and learn to love your body for what it is. I feel so confident wearing a form fitting top with these flowy pants. I now walk (or strut) with a purpose. It might have taken 26 years to get to this point, but hey at least I'm here!
Flowy satin pants, trousers and high-waisted linen pants are all the rage right now, and you can find them at all your favorite stores. I purchased mine from Zara, because they had really cute patterns and they were super affordable.
I will say as a curvy girl, not all of these types of pants are flattering on me. I must have tired on 10 different pairs at Zara until I found a style and cut that worked for my shape.
