Striped and Pleated

Here I am, acting all cool in pleated pants. I know, I can hardly believe it myself. I was skeptical when I got these pants, and I still remain somewhat ambivalent about them, but I have found if a shirt is left untucked and falls in juuuust the right spot, these pants can be pretty flattering. Flattering enough for me. I have sort of low standards for myself this week, and figure if anything distracts from my red nose and sneezing, it’s a fashion DO.

Bear with me, folks. Over the next few days I will be switching from Blogger here to Word Press and I am flailing around right now with very little idea of what I am doing. I have enlisted some amazing help from my very smart friend Chris, though, so I am sure Trophy Boutique will be snazzy enough to show you in no time.

Also, thanks a million to those of you who helped me think of ways to style yesterday’s floral pants! I can’t wait to show you the fruits of your labor. Or the fruits of your suggestions, more like…

    Those are so cute! I like the untucked look (according to my mirror, this doesn't work with my pleated khaki-green pants…) Does it work to tuck something into them? Maybe a slim tee? I wonder…

    I wanted a pair of pants like that so bad and I finally found a pair that I liked but I wore them two times before giving them to my sister. Something about them just didn't work on me but I think they look great on you! Love those shoes too!

    i've been meaning to comment on your shoes/heels/flats for the last few post. You have really amazing taste in shoes and I would wear every single pair, esp. the black and red clog like ones.

    aaaaaaaaaaah ANOTHER pair of gorgeous clogs? Why must you torture me :(

    the pleated pants suit you perfectly, I like those kind of 'poofy on top" pants a lot better on girls who actually have hips than on boyish models. You look hot.

    I was liking my hair too btw, and my legs are tan because I fake tan! 😀 a Dove faketanning body lotion, totally natural result.
