Wide Leg Pros and Cons

 Hat: Tula (here) // Tee: Madewell (here) // Pants: Madewell (similar here) // Shoes: Isabel Marant (platform version here or this years version here) // Bag: thrifted vintage (such a cute summery version here and pretty tempted by this anthro one here) // Necklace: Madewell (here)

It's a very Madewell kind of day I guess. It's also the time of year where I start wearing a plain t-shirt 90% of the time. I mean, they are very versatile. I'll try to only post the most interesting outfits here or on Instagram, which means the frequency is about to go down down down. Haha! Nice weather just brings out the simple in me. 

So high-waisted, wide-legged pants. Obviously a trend some of us will cringe at in a few years but that's fashion, right? When you're short-waisted like me there's probably a higher cringe probability. 

Cons:

It can make you look like an old man with your trousers pulled up to your chest.
It makes your rear end look about three feet long.
Short-waisted usually means you accumulate weight around your middle which these can accentuate.

Pros:

No rear end exposure when doing the mom squat.
Comfortingly holds all that post-baby stomach in.
Lots of leg room.

To get past a little bit of the cons I like to knot my shirt in front making an approximation of a waist (there's a little more stomach showing in these photos than I'd like but eh) and then pull the shirt down in the back a little bit so it only looks like my butt is 2 1/2 feet long.
