Can't Touch This

When Harem pants first came to the high street a couple of years ago oh how I mocked them. "Why would anyone want to look like a genie?" and "unflattering pyjamas" were thoughts that first crossed my mind. But now I have the biggest of spoons to eat my words as not only do I now own a pair but I love them. Yes they do look a little pyjamary but at the same time they have the the same comfort of pyjamas and this wins anyday. I got mine last week and they're so good for this stormy one minute scathingly hot sunshine the next weather we've been having. I reckon they look best avec Gladiator sandals or Wedges and with my pale, shy of baring all legs demanding more of these comfy strews I've had a persue online and found these - the first pair are the ones I've already sniffed out in h&m.



Where They're From
Trousers (Left to Right): h&m, Topshop, h&m, Tesco, Matalan
Wedges: chockersshoes.co.uk, Newlook, linzishoes.com, Priceless Shoes, boohoo.com






I had no makeup on when these were taken and looking at the second picture now that was a rookie mistake on my part. Also I feel I need to defend the first picture - it was either an uncomfortable bend or a lack of head in the photo! My wedges are super old and were £5.00 from New Look as they were bought in January, I'm starting to think I should buy all my clothes out of season, how cheap are knitted jumpers and jeans atm?!

Hope everyone's having a good weekend, I had yet another failed attempt at getting my hair coloured today as I was told last time that I needed a toner, so I went ahead and booked for a toner to then be told today I don't need one? Ugh! And two of the stylists had the cheek to mock my reautiful locks! Ah well I'm going dark blonde now on Friday now : /
So I'm currently festering in my flat watching Paris Hilton's Dubai BFF (when will they stop?), scoffing penguin bars, and feeling bitter and sorry for myself. It's likely I'll cheer myself up with some cod action tonight - psn anyone?

  1. I have to admit I've always loved printed harems, especially for Summer, I love all the pairs you've picked out and I'm loving those bright pink wedges. Also, you look lovely in these photos so no need to defend them! :) x

  4. Good luck with your hair! I know how frustrating that can be.

    as for the harem pants... I think it depends on the person! You, for example, can rock them. ;)

  5. I love yours!
    I reaaalllly want a pair but I just can't find any that suit me :(
    My sister bought some last summer and even though we're the exact same size/height they just looked ridiculous on me.
    The search continues - now made much easier by the snazzy ones you've posted! Hopefully they will be the ones for me!

  7. Ha, I used to mock harem trousers too but like you I'm going to have to eat my words - I love them! They're so comfy, I bought a few pairs last summer. I might check out Topshop for the coral ones, they're gorgeous! x

  14. I am loving printed harems right now! My favourites are some bird print ones from primark.

  15. I have some plain black harem pants I bought last year from Tesco but I never know what to wear them with! I love the patterned ones though, especially the ones you have; they look lovely with your wedges!

  16. I love the harems! And lol about looking like a genie! Thats can happen if someone doesn't capture the essence of the style (but I'm in for it, I wouldn't mind looking like a genie! THEY ARE so cute for a start lol)!

  20. I like harems on the hanger, and then when i actually wear them just feel frumpy and huge in them. I don't think i'm the right shape for them :(

    ReplyDelete
  21. ah they really suit you, they look lovely! i agree about harems - certainly had my reservations about them but i think that they look so good when worn right! i don't think i'd be able to pull them off with quite the same amount of aplomb as you! :)

  22. I've been threatening to jump on the harem pants bandwagon for ages now but when i wear them I always feel like I'm in my pyjamas. They're just TOO comfy for me if that makes any sense! hahaha!

  23. I envy anyone who can pull off hareem pants! You are one of them. They look lovely with the wedges.
    I can honestly say that I will never be purchasing a pair, but only because they look absolutely horrendous on me!
    Good luck with your hair!

  25. Ooh I love the coral Topshop pair. I've never tried hareem pants before because I'm scared they would be super unflattering, but they do look soooo comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd love to own a pair, but I'm scared that they'll totally swamp me. Maybe with huge wedges I'll manage. Need to try them out! :) Yours are great - love the print! X

  27. Coral pair is so <3! Like your blog! Would you like to follow each other? love, m.

  28. They're a tricky one - I own a pair which are super baggy and I really like those, but I've tried other pairs on in Topshop and H&M and looked absolutely ridiculous in them! Love yours though, and yes, I agree they look fab teamed with wedges!

    Also, love the Benny Hill/Hair curling video below - I think from now on I'm going to play Benny Hill music every time I do my hair - it makes everything so much more fun!

    I've tagged you with the Kreativ Blogger Award - there's a post over on my blog if you fancy checking it out :)

  29. No, sorry, the shoes are from H&M and I've bought them like 4-5 years ago. I went clubbing in them so many times that they can be officially branded "vintage" ;)


    P.S. Check out my giveaway!

  34. From the side it would seem that a van! There is no making tracks in an opposite direction from the way that it is extremely piece sided however abnormally tasteful in its plainess. The back of the vehicle is viable and satisfying, with a split upper and lower entryway a la Range Rover. The old Disco had extremely constrained boot space, yet now this has completely changed and the boot is extensive and valuable. payday loans

  35. You'd be astounded what parts can be recuperated and utilized once more, including little things, for example, stray pieces. Truth be told, there are a few organizations that lone arrangement in the stray pieces that are recovered from the destruction of autos taken away in Melbourne.

  36. Panther is currently possessed by Indian Tata Motors under the Jaguar Land Rover mark yet there is as yet something refined and British about the Jaguar mark that individuals have connected with class and eminence for a long time. The brand is really popular for its drop beat roadsters from the 1960s that have been seen in numerous movies, for example, Austin Powers. check cashing
