HOW I WORE FLARED CROPPED PANTS

Hello my dear readers and fellow bloggers.  Hope you all had a good break over Easter.

I have fantastic news to share with you all – last Sunday I became a grandmother for the first time to an absolutely gorgeous baby girl, name yet to be determined.  I can’t begin to describe how happy I feel for myself and my daughter who desperately wanted to have a girl but was repeatedly told by everyone that it is going to be a boy.  So it was a double joy for all of us involved.

I think, under the circumstances, you will forgive me for this post being extremely short.   In anticipation of becoming a grandmother and knowing that I wouldn’t have much time left for blogging, I’ve had the photos taken earlier so all that was left was to write the blurb, so here it is.

As I mentioned in my previous post, last week my husband and I went to see the opera, Carmen on the Harbour, which was absolutely sublime.

I must’ve still been under its spell when I was at the department store passing through the Women’s Fashion section of David Jones department store on my way to buy a toy for my granddaughter that I spotted these cropped flare pants hanging off the rack at the concession shop of Beck and Bridge and felt an irresistible urge to buy them.

Flares have been on trend for quite a while and I’ve been thinking of buying myself a pair for the coming winter season so here was my chance to do just that.

I didn’t have much time to try them on so I just quickly paid and left.

By the time I reached my car in the parking lot, I new exactly what two items in my wardrobe would look perfect with these pants.

Firstly,  a silk blouse in a gorgeous burnt orange colour that when wrapped around the waist like a kimono style can be tied up in a big bow and secondly, two toned high heel strappy sandals.

I had about an hour at my disposal before going to the hospital to see my girls, so I quickly put all the three elements on and asked my husband to take photos.  And voila,  a Carmen inspired outfit was born.
