EIGHTY/ couture couture

It's safe to say that I rock skin tight black skinny jeans four to five times a week. I have about eight pairs in my wardrobe right now and If you're familiar with my blog, you're probably sick of seeing them. I'm really trying to branch out with my pant choices so when I saw these printed harem-esque pants at Marshall's on clearance for only $13 I had to jump on them. I figured if I don't get a lot of wear out of them, it won't be much of a loss due to the low price.

Surprisingly I have worn them a lot since I bought them and I absolutely love the way they feel. They're super flowy and lightweight, which is going to be amazing when the temperature starts to rise. The only cons I can think of is that 1) they wrinkle very easily - I have to steam them every time I wear them and 2) I can't really get over the fact that they look like pajama pants. Hopefully I'll get over the whole ~pj~ fear because they're incredibly comfortable and add a bit of interest to any look. The biggest issue for me when shopping for pants is that my legs are freakishly short, especially for my height. I have to buy pants that are cropped or that have a shorter inseam, and I've bought harem type pants in the past only to go home and find out that they look like clown pants on me because of the length. These hit right at my ankle and don't add excessive volume on my lower half (which makes my legs look even shorter) due to the fact that there's no elasticized ankles. They're so perfect. I'm so in love. Be prepared to see these pants a hell of a lot during the warmer months.

Another thing I am obsessing over right now is Juicy Couture's 'Couture Couture' perfume. I have been on a desperate hunt to find new scents after my favourite, Guess 'Gold', was discontinued years ago. I don't know if this is the winner in replacing that scent just yet, but I'm loving it at the moment. Plus I love how many times the word 'Couture' is used in the name - it's sooo much fun to say!
