In today's episode of #bloggerproblems, these pants photograph SO WEIRD (see them styled for cold weather, here.) I promise you they don't look this strange in real life. I think the key is to wear them a little bit looser and lower, to avoid joining the mile-long-crotch club. 

This was an outfit that came together when I had two minutes and needed something to wear, NOW. These pants came to me secondhand from a co-worker, and I don't wear them too often. I was deliberating between a couple fancier tops, when I spied this t-shirt, and the rest of the ensemb fell into place around it. I like how this feels very classic menswear-y. 

In hair news (which I very very rarely have, this is a big deal) lately I've been "wanding" my hair with a barrel roller (per Andrea's instruction) and loving it! The barrel curls + dry shampoo + a few days gives my hair this awesome texture that a wand just can't do. And if you should know one thing about my hairstyling- it's that I love a style that I can wear for three, four, five days before another wash. 

These pictures accurately depict that Nashville is sunny, bright, and hot, hot HOT! I am stuck in that state of bliss that is Friday, my favorite holiday, every week. It helps that I shopped online this morning :D and completely destroyed my no shopping goal for the year. Anyway, I come to you in full disclosure of that. I hope you have a happy weekend, and thanks for stopping by!!

I actually REALLY like the pants despite the #bloggerproblem haha! :)

Girl, half of my clothes photo weird! And it doesn't help that I take my pictures at the end of the day, so they're usually all stretched out and wrinkly!
I love this outfit on you though! I think you have the perfect body shape for those pants. I could imagine them looking awful on someone shaped differently, but they were made for you!

I do not think the pants look weird at all, they're super cute! Also, I wish I could wear my hair without washing for more than a day or (possibly) two!Hope you're having a great day! xo Hannah

Thanks so much Marie!!

Priya Pappu said...

Aww thanks Danielle! That's another blogger problem, taking photos at the END of the day when you've been wearing an outfit all day! I always spill something on myself.

Hahahaha this post made me laugh. I HATE how my green jeans photograph around the crotch. They give that area the weirdest shape. I swear they don't look that bad in person, at least I hope not! Love this combo with your striped tee. Don't you have a dress in the exact same pattern, color, and shape as that tee? I thought you were being creative wearing it as a shirt at first! So what all did you buy??

Larissa said...

Such a super cute look! I see these kinds of pants everywhere these days and I wonder if I should get some too... ;)
How did you manage cleaning your closet? I did that too and I will sell lots of clothes on a fleamarket next week. I hope I will sell a lot :)
Thanks a lot for your comments!
