07 Jan Turning Heads Linkup – Santa Brought Me Paper Bag Faux Leather Trousers
The first Turning Heads Tuesday linkup of 2020! Thank you for being here.
I don’t have Spanx leggings. They look great and I love the leather look, I just don’t like any kind of compression on my stomach. When I saw these paper bag waist faux leather trousers ( boy, that’s a mouthful!) I loved the look and sent Santa the link 🙂
You might think
Santa hubby would know my taste after 20 years together, but in defense, my taste has changed throughout the years. I do love trying new things and thought these looked relaxed, yet very stylish. Doesn’t the saying go ” New Year, New You, New Clothes?” 🙂
Yes, I have been doing much of my shopping for clothes on Mango, and thrifting on Poshmark this year. I have always liked the look of paper bag waist pants and have a pair of linen olive ones I wear in the summer. These just called out to me. I have a habit of looking at something multiple times and usually, that means it is something I want to style or could see it in my closet.
I am wearing a size XS in the pants here and they are very comfortable. With the higher waist and the paper bag style, you have to wear a close-fitting top or sweater to create a slim, streamlined silhouette. Unless you are wearing a cropped top or sweater, you have to tuck in the top, so you don’t want bulk there. I picked the pea-green blouse I’ve had for years from Banana Republic, and love the combination with black.
I received some sweaters this year for Christmas and would wear a few of them with the pants, as long as they are a light knit. A chunky knit wouldn’t look best with these pants as you may have to tuck it in, again creating too much fullness or material at waist/stomach area. Opt for a blouse or a light knit for these Winter months to wear with these fashionable pants.
I went through some trial and error when it came to buying black pumps. I wanted a pointed toe pair with block heels. I first bought several sizes of Marc Fisher Zala pumps ( 8,8.5) and no matter what I bought they were too long. I loved the style but returned those. I then went on Amazon and found these Marc Fisher Claire pumps, 2.34 in heels for more than 50% off the other pair. Sold! I will add some cushioning in as insoles and they will be good, and for under $50, ( ON SALE NOW )are quite pretty.
Not quite sure why I don’t pay attention to dimensions on websites. I bought these gold hoop earrings on Mango’s sale, and do really like them, even though they are larger than I thought. I just love the classic style of a gold hoop.
New Year- New Decade.
I mentioned on my 2020 Goals post, that I joined the gym I used to go to before I got sick. Now, I qualified for “Silver and Fit” and BCBS pays for the gym! I pay $15 for the year, and I am ready to try some pool classes and machines. Besides my doctor’s appt today, this week I will try and use the pool. It should be fun! ( as long as its warm!)
Readers, I want to hear from you, once I create my survey for EDS blog, I’d love to know some of the content you prefer on the blog. More about you. all that good stuff!
Let’s make 2020 a great year! Come on! Oprah said so! 🙂 Did you hear about her Vision Tour? It’s so important to live the life you want! I want to help you create a closet that you love and enjoy. Deciding what to wear can be fun and shouldn’t be stressful, so I’ll be sharing some ways I style key pieces this year, among other things. I also love to write about health, fitness, and beauty in addition to fashion.
My coat from Mango 2 years ago. I love the teal blue color and its just the right weight for NC Winters.
See, I need to get a top like this for next yrs New Years to wear with my pants!
