Style File: vintage plaid pants

Here I am in the plaid pants. It's one of those pieces that I love but wasn't sure if I was woman enough to wear them. They're from the 70s -- pastel plaids plus they are high waisted, wide legged and cuffed. They got a lot going on!

Since these pants are the statement piece, I went with a basic black blouse on top. I've had the peasant blouse for years but I hardly ever wear it. I think I've found it's perfect mate.

I chose the color blocked clutch I diy'd to keep it understated but still interesting and they match the boots.

Ringing my bells. Look at that span?

The back shot because these pants give me the butt I've always wanted. I had to show it! I haven't looked at my backside in a while maybe this is my new post baby butt. Who knew? TMI?

I love how you styled the blue plaid pants with a black shirt and two-toned clutch. It works well!

Me!...acutally they are not pastel plaid, but plaid with wide legs and high waist nonetheless. And for $5 I could not pass them up!

Those pants totally remind me of "The Jeffersons" (Movin' on up!), but I LOVE them!
