What I Wore: Ways to Wear

Is it just me or does the weekend go by so much faster during the Holidays?
I guess time flies when you are having fun! :)

I am so happy to be doing another 'Ways to Wear' challenge with Amber over at Real Girl Glam. We both love these pants and know that they are a piece that scare people. Haha. They are definitely a statement maker and we wanted to show you that you can wear these pants in so many ways. Last time we dressed the pants pretty similarly so we knew we had to challenge ourselves this time around. We came up with completely different looks! I don't know about you but I want to copy her entire look. Those booties are too die for!

 Check out Amber's outfit HERE!

Let me explain my look...
I totally pushed myself out of my comfort zone. I took a risk by mixing in a gray and white sweatshirt with such a bold print. I love gray and cognac together so that was where I got the idea. I feel like adding in the shoes tied the color combo together. I wanted to show you that you can wear these pants in a more casual way. I wore this outfit to run errands and I was comfy in it. I honestly liked how the look turned out but can see where it is still that this may be an outlandish look for a lot of you.

So tell me...
Is this a look you would wear? 
I would love to hear how you would wear these pants in a casual way!

Ways to Wear

What I Wore:

Sweatshirt: Target from the Men's Department (not available online).
- It is honestly the softest sweatshirt ever. I wear it all of the time.
Pants: Merona (no longer available online)
Shoes: Converse
Watch: Michele 'Urban', this style has been discontinued (Mini Urban with White face)
Sunglasses: Gucci, really old (similar pair)

  2. I love the way you styled these! I think it's great to see bold pieces remixed several different ways to broaden the minds way of thinking. Instead of simply wearing a solid top I love the grey and white!
    and of course, I am a Chuck Taylor kind of girl so those are right up my alley!

  3. Mandy! Your risk totally paid off! I LOVE the sporty sweatshirt with the leopard pants :) I told Amber I tried on those pants and they didn't look good on me at all - they look amazing on both of you!! :)
