One Cool Cat

 
Anyone who knows me, knows that if my home is one degree less than 73, I'm "freezing." So, I should love summer, right? Well, I do. . .but not when it's technically supposed to be fall - or winter, for that matter. Purely for fashion purposes, I like cooler weather. Don't get me wrong - it is nice not to worry about a bulky coat. Now that I'm managing 3 wardrobes - mine, Ruby's, and Flora's - fewer layers makes outfit planning a wee bit faster. But when mid-November hit and the highs were still in the 60s, I'd had enough.

I think out of the pants silhouettes, I’ve worn it all: skinny, boyfriend, cropped, low-rise, high-rise, flared, raver huge, gaucho, Capri, palazzo, boot cut (feel free to stop me anytime). Out of all those cuts, my favorite is flared. No, it’s not because they are considered “on trend” right now, although that does make flared jeans much easier to find in mainstream stores. It’s that flared pants have a cool quotient unmatched by any other silhouette. Here’s why.

'Outdoorsy' is not typically a word people use to describe me. Sure, I love being outside when the weather is nice (read: at least 70 degrees). Chilling on a sandy beach somewhere is my idea of heaven. But the ‘let’s-go-on-a-5-mile-hike’ type of outdoorsy? Not so much. I haven’t been camping since 6th grade. The tent Brian got a “great deal” on 2 years ago remains in its original packaging. But, I’ve spent more time outdoors since having kids than I probably have in my whole life, except perhaps when I was a kid. And you know what? I love it.
