Printed and Peplum

These pants feel like cheating. They look professional and pulled together, but actually they are so stretchy and so soft I almost thought they were pajama pants. I’ve since verified that they are actually day pants, but that probably won’t stop me from sleeping in them. I love a good pair of pants you can fall asleep in. 
Also can we talk about how these pants are from JC Penney? I ran in the other day to get some sheets  (they have the softest sheets ever, FYI) and walked out with these pants instead. I haven’t looked through their clothing section in a while but I had time that day and I’ve never been one to turn down an off-road shopping trip. Turns out I’m a fan. I found these pants and this top…and maybe this dress. And by maybe, I mean yeah. 
Went in for sheets, came out with a new wardrobe. I’m resourceful, aren’t I?

    JCPenney has seriously upped their game over the past couple of years! I'm a huge fan of peplum, but most tops always hit too high on my long torso. This one looks legit!

    How tall are you? I feel like you're pretty tall, so how do you get normal pants to fit? If they don't come in Longs I can never wear them. What are your secrets!? πŸ™‚

    I'm 5'9"…these pants are actually pretty long, so I feel like they would be too long for a petite gal. I think it's because I'm very proportionate — my legs are long but so is my torso, so I can usually get away with regular length pants. Not all pants fit me right, I just show the ones that do on here πŸ™‚ I think I just try on a lot of styles until I find a winner. Ha! Maybe that's my secret πŸ˜‰

    Oh girl, I'll have to measure them. These seem to have a pretty long inseam, honestly. I'm usually like a 30" inseam in denim so….maybe these are like 28"? That's an uneducated guess though….

    Hi kendi, love what a cute blog u have. The more I get to know you, the more I like you. I know we could be great friends. You look like Audrey Hepburn. Your face is perfect. Have you ever thought of wearing bangs. I love how you look without them too, but bangs give such a soft look, don't you agree?

    Hey, when you see it, you gotta get it. Otherwise you'll be kicking yourself later! I've been pleasantly surprised with Penney's lately, got a gorgeous maxi dress kinda like the one you picked up. It was my shopping unicorn – last one, in my size, in the perfect minty-teal color. πŸ˜‰ Their Claiborne line is pretty great for office pants and skirts too.

    Hahah, I have the same problem. That's why I can't run into Target anyway. "I just need a pair of socks" quickly turns into "how did my order end up totaling $100??" This is an adorable outfit–love those pants (AND THAT BAG!). Adorable.

    I must say, I took your sheets recommendation, and I will agree, they are the softest sheets I have ever had. Unfortunately I was not as lucky finding clothes and left with only the sheets!
