Loving Life after 50

When Trendy meets Classic, taking Floaty Pants to the Office

I am a study in contrasts and as a result there is nothing better then taking a trendy piece and mixing it with a classic piece and create a fun office worthy outfit.  I found these pants at Forever 21 and although I loved them I had a hard time finding a styling I loved.

 The pants are what I refer to as my blogger copycat pants. I followed Because of Shanna religiously and I adored her style.  She had these pants and I decided I really needed to own a pair. The only issue I have had was every time I saw the pictures I was not totally happy with the look here, here,here, here or here. I have to confess I really am liking this look though, the solid navy mesh sweater and a classic blazer seem the perfect offset ( or maybe its just all the curls I have going on)

Have you ever purchased a trendy item and then struggled to find your best look? Do you copy others look only to find that maybe your own look is best for you? Truth be told, I do love these pants and they are very comfortable but it has taken me a while to totally find my own style for them. I do love my Puma’s with them, the gold is the perfect neutral and the fact they are as comfy as a sneaker was a bonus.
