Wide-Leg Chino Pants

I have become such a fan of high-waisted pants. Call it mom jeans or whatever you want, they are just so comfortable and frame my body just right. I am also glad that wide-leg pants are popping back up as a HUGE trend. I used to wear them so much when I was younger and fast forward to now, I cannot get enough of them. Literally, obsessed. It is almost as if a light bulb went off in my head and I realized how much I love great wide-leg chino pants. It's so comfortable to be in all day and so easy to transform from a day look into the night look. 

There are so many versions and styles of wide-leg pants, that I know I will be able to mix up the look enough by wearing them with blazers, plain tee shirts & blouses throughout the spring and summer. I particular love these wide-leg taupe chino pants that I found at Forever 21 for under $20! I paired them with a body suit, blazer and some easy slide on heels from Target. Who doesn't love a good spring taupe pants that you can mix and match with other things in your closet?  Are you a fan of the wide-leg pants look? I'm sharing some of my other favorite colors and brands of this particular style below. Enjoy! -xo Mel

Meet the women and girls who rocked Fan Expo Dallas 2018. Hundreds of women every year attend Fan Expo because they find it empowering. My daughter and I have attended Fan Expo for years now, simply because I love seeing people enjoy being their geeky fandom selves and my daughter and I admire the hard work people put in to be a feature artist, cosplayer, movie star, and more. Theres so much talent in one big showroom floor. This year I wanted to feature the wonderful women of Cosplay in Dallas. Check them out in the gallery below. Enjoy! -xo Mel
