Monday Mingle: Wide Legs


After a winter filled with skinnies, I’m ready to say hello to wide legs! Subtle seventies influences are going to be big for spring once again and I’m getting a jump on the trend with a pair of printed wide leg pants that I picked up on my trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains over the holidays. Don’t hate me because I went sleeveless. Haha! It’s rather warm here in Florida. I’m probably jinxing myself, but we’ve enjoyed a very mild winter and I’m loving being able to run out during the day sans jacket. Bring on spring baby…I’m ready! I’m sure you can tell that I have spring on the brain. I’m all about COLOR at the moment. And my new wide legs have all kinds of color in them!


While I opted to pair these wide legs with my beloved lace sleeveless CAbi needle lace shell, you Northerners could easily substitute in a sweater. There’s no reason why you have to wait a few more months to rock spring’s wide leg pants if you’re feelin’ them now. I wore mine with t-strap heels from JustFab, but you could try ankle boots on for size!


Now that you’ve seen my favorite look of the moment, head on over to our Monday Mingle partners in crime, Momtrends and Thirty Something Fashion, to see what they’ve been styling! But first, make sure you link up your own fashionable posts below and enter our latest giveaway! AΒ True Love hard cover book from Jennifer Lopez, scarf and sunnies from Claire’s, Thursday Friday luggage tags, and a NYC print scarf are up for grabs!

    You are rocking those beautiful palazzo pants Kristin. I simply love that lace peplum shirt also. It is looking quite warm over there.

    Any plans for V-Day? Enjoy this festive week! <3 Ada.

    Those pants look fierce! They are so playful and as much as I love the skinnies I think it’s nice to see some flared ones like these!!!

    It’s actually warm and rainy here in the Bay Area so it’s reminding me a lot of Florida right now.

    What a fun pair of printed pants! I must agree, sometimes it is just so nice to break off from the usual silhouette.

    Very cute, wide legs have been on my mind a lot too as well as bringing some flare ones back into my rotation. I like the bold colors and the lace shell that helps tone down the top. Very pretty friend! πŸ™‚

    Kristin, four words: I LOVE YOUR PANTS!! They are incredible! (Okay, that’s three more words!) No but really, they are. I would totally wear those ALL. OVER. THE. PLACE. (Four more words!!) They kind of remind me of this #ootdof mine a while back. For some reason this style really works with my body shape. It looks like it does with yours too. Great styling. And so happy you are able to go sleeveless:D

    Thanks for providing us with this link up!

    I detest pants, have one pair for when I need them (housecleaning or such) and wear leggings under my dresses. The palazzos are cute, though, and my daughter likes them.
