As soon as I saw Angie's beautiful outfit I knew what I want to wear that day! Alas, I did not have white flares so I decided to reverse the colors.
All items are several years old in this outfit so no finds for them:
- JCrew yellow Tippi sweater;
- Danier white leather moto jacket;
- Ink Paige Canyon flares;
I don't have anything in bright turquoise as this is not my best color so this deep blue-teal silk scarf is the closest I can do.

Pic 2 is what I wore the day before to the office. I got these camel pleated wide leg trousers in the consignment store in the fall. I have been collected the inspiration pictures of such pants for several years and these looked like they fit the bill so I thought they will be my wild card for the season. I could not wear them in winter so I am starting now - and I am not sure. I still like the inspiration pictures but I am not sure about them on me.

I wore them on Thursday and then the flared jeans on Friday and could not help but notice that I felt more fab in the flares than in these trousers the day before...

Is this because my body type (curvy in the hips) is not the best for this cut at all? Or is it just this particular pair of pants is not right?

I do wear them with flat loafers here but so are some of m inspirations so that should not be the reason....

Should I just ditch the whole idea and get rid of these pants as a mistake? Your thoughts are very welcome!
