courage, my love

I'm pretty sure I've already ranted and raved to you plenty about how I feel concerning pants. Long story short: I'm not a huge fan. I think the main problem is that, while I have great affection for the lower part of my legs, the upper parts? Not so much. That's why skirts and dresses are so great--they're made for playing a devious game of hide-a-thigh.

Ah, but pants! (Or should I say the pant??) They're everywhere these days--and not just any pants, really cool pants, like the ones up top. Slouchy, cuffed, printed, plaid. They make me want to throw caution to the wind...and my insecurities out the door.

So I'm trying. I'm experimenting. I think the secret to this thing might be pairing the pant with a really killer shoe. Sadly, my sexy shoe supply is sparse these days, so I went with the old staple Dingo boots. I dig it, but it's not quite there. But I'm ok with that.

On a side not, I said goodbye to my yellow walls today. I've moved in to a new place, though unfortunately most of my stuff wont be following me for another week or so. Outfit shots might be scarce for a while, I'm still figuring things out. And I'm sure gonna miss that golden glow...

Luce said...

ditto the above comment, but I do know what you're talking about! I don't even own pants, so you're doing pretty well. I'm thinking of taking the plunge aswell...

You look great in pants, dude - you should wear them more often! I think I need to thief those plaid pants off that first girl.

Suzy said...

totally refreshing to see a not-quite-there (but, lets face it, still crazy-stylish) look; i applaud said courage!

and, hey, i'm not a fan of my knees and below, whataya say we frankenstein those mothers! logistics and skin tones aside, that'd be one hot leg.

Diane said...

I think you pull these pants off pretty awesomely. I like how they're so narrow! I hope you keep experimenting with pants if you look this good in them.

you and the bf should take my apt which features not one but two types of yellow rooms

Anna said...

The trousers look great on u! no need to worry what so ever. Been on searching for the perfect trousers too though... Some of them should be great when one's got leg-complex. Problem's where to find a pair. Sorry about this long comment but u always look fab!

Lydia said...

I know exactly what you mean...Perhaps this winter I will wear...pants?!?!?! Kudos on the courage to try!

Ellen said...

um i agree, you have nothing to worry about. i know how you feel, but you've got to just do it. pants can be awesome!

hello birdy said...

You look gorgeous in these..er..pants. Sorry! Being English it feels weird saying that as of course to us it means your underwear :)

I completely understand your thigh insecurity as I absolutely detest mine (no swimwear or shorts for me..)

That said though, your thighs look incredibly slim!

katie said...

oh those pants look great, good job making high fashion into your everyday. where did you find those trousers? oh very flattering.

Grace said...

Fantastic inspiration pull. I must say I adore your style and blog.

Love Grace.

ps. hope you don't mind if I add you to my blogroll.

Ringo, have a banana! said...

Aw jeez thanks everyone, I know I don't really have so much to worry about, but that doesn't keep me from being a silly self-conscious GIRL, bleh!

The pants are a pair of vintage Levi's that I got at Beacon's Closet. For every five times I walk away from there empty handed and discouraged (or just really ticked off), there's that one time when I score some really cool pants or something that just keeps me coming back like a sucka...

The Waves said...

You look supercute in those trousers - I know I am repeating what has already been said, but you have absolutely nothing to worry about! I know what you mean re: missing wall colours - I recently moved, and really miss my mint green bedroom..! :)

sarah said...

i have a pair of vintage levis that look peculiarly the same... are yours sta-prest?? i love them. especially with the dingos! they go with everything right? RIGHT?

Tea For Two said...

You have absolutely no reason to be worried about your thighs, lady! Like the way you're wearing those pants.
