Happy Monday all!
As you ladies (and some gents!) know I love wearing prints but when it comes to printed pants I pause. I tend to be self-conscious about my ample hips and printed pants would definitely highlight them. I bought a pair of printed Eloquii pants back in January with every intention of being brave and wearing them but I just couldn’t do it.
While browsing the Pose application on my phone a few weeks ago I came across the beautiful Natalie of The Tiny Closet wearing this wonderful outfit.
In Natalie’s post, she talked about her apprehension towards wearing prints. Among the reasons she cited for passing them over was the possibility that wearing them might not suit her build. Eventually Natalie decided to wear a bright print skirt (which she made!) and paired it with pieces that allowed the print to stand out. Natalie’s post got me to thinking about my neglected Eloquii pants. She and I have similar misgivings about wearing print but by her willingness to step outside her comfort zone, Natalie was able to overcome her apprehension. The post really resonated with me because I know stepping outside your comfort zone can be scary but the payoff is that you grow as a person. I decided to put aside my fears and wear my printed pants. Surprisingly I didn’t feel as self-conscious about my hips as I thought I would. No one ran out of their house screaming “HIPS!!!”. Natalie’s post inspired me to overcome this small hurdle. It feels good to not to be self conscious about wearing printed pants.
Please check out Natalie’s blog for more fabulous looks! Have a great day!
