     Pants are a highly underrated aspect of many-a-blogger's wardrobe. Most personal style bloggers in the demographic that I follower prefer other separates, say skirts and blouses, or just straight up would rather wear a dress than any other article of clothing. But a killer pair of jeans or trousers is a very powerful thing. 
     In this outfit, I felt as though I could conquer anything, legs showing or not. I will admit to having a bit of a denim obsession (and I have an inside joke with a friend about just how extensive that obsession may be); however, after buying my Imogene Slims from Imogene + Willie, I haven't even thought about purchasing another pair of jeans. Now I regularly rotate between those and my high-waisted pair from Urban Outfitters; although, I think we all know which pair will last longer. Other than that I can't get enough of wool trousers and printed, cropped pants. It's the perfect menswear inspired touch to counter some of my more feminine dresses.
     Basically, I love pants. The two legged pairs just feel like home more so that bearing my skinny runner's legs in a skirt or dress does. Unfortunately, the weather in East Tennessee stays in the upper 80s until much later in the year, but that doesn't mean I'm not rocking pants every chance I get.  I always go through my phases with dresses and girlier things, but I know my odd trouser affinity is here to stay.
