Don’t get me wrong I like pants, but I’ve never been a pants person. Don’t know why. I tend to gravitate to dresses and skirts. I’ll throw on a pair of jeans in a heartbeat but my closet is missing a nice selection of pants.

Side-stripe pants are having a serious fashion moment and I’m here for it all. From sporty and athletic to classic and chic, trousers this season got a makeover.

Less about my life and more about this pretty in pink look.
