the pants

sorry for not posting a lot, guys, I've been super swamped with school. I've scheduled a few posts every 4-5 days so you won't be wanting for a little bit.
if you like, follow me on Tumblr. I update that a bit more, just because it's easier to write quick little life-blips. I have a load of posts queued on that one too.

so on 9 April I decided to finally wear these pants.
mustard yellow
ski pants
from the early 60s.

They were my grandmother's.

I got some weird looks; The Pants even got sarcastically tweeted about.
This is what I aim for, folks!

(also have I told you guys about my new boyfriend)
(he's adorable)
(he looks like Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch made a child that had Amy Pond's hair colour)
(he's the bass player in a rather successful local band)
(he's going to Princeton next year)
(he's very smart)
(and likes going on weird adventures with me)
(it is very exciting)
(he's basically the perfect human being for me)
(it's very odd)
(I keep expecting him to be gay or something because he's too good to be true)
(so yeah)
(he lives in the next town over so we can't see each other all the time)
(but it's okay because he has a car)
(and also he called me last night just to talk)
(which was adorable)
(nobody ever calls anybody anymore)


  1. I love those pants! I love the whole outfit. :)


  2. gah, you so pull those off. gorgeous!

  3. They're adorable! I totally wish I could pull off pants that cut.
    I'll have to settle with a different cut, but same color. Yellow is the freaking best.

  4. Oh. My. God. Those are awesome!!! Especially with the heels!

    Yay on the new boyfriend! :)

  5. first: those pants. oh my gosh those pants. you better where those at the new york fashion week, because i'll die of happiness if you do.
    second: "he looks like Matt Smith and Benedict Cumberbatch made a child that had Amy Pond's hair colour." that is freaking awesome. i love both of them so much. and i also love how you spell "color" with a u. so much more sophisticated, yeah?

  20. I looked at my dashboard and was like "omg yellow ski pants"! You are workin' it, girl! :)

  21. hahaa, that tweet is hilarious-it's stupidity, I mean. Because, even though trends/fashion/whatever is totally overrated and possibly might not even exist, mustard yellow and high waisted IS in. Like TOTALLY in. At least where I'm from. Ahhh, oh well. People will be people.

  22. I love those trousers. To like, a level that I would probably even steal them and I have never stolen anything.
    Yet. Until I find these trousers...
    And yay for nice boyfriends!

  23. I love those pants. That's so cool. Isn't funny that those were instyle 45 years ago?
    But still, they are cute. :)

  24. Gosh you rock those pants girl! I love them!

    You got a ginger? NO FAIR!!! (Yeah, I totally crush on gingers, blame Rupert Grint and Allen Leech for that) Congrats on the boyfriend! He sounds ah-mazing and dreamy. :)

  25. I am seriously in love with those pants. <3 And congrats on the new boyfriend! He sounds great. :)

  35. girl. who cares if mustard high waisted pants are in (THEY ARE)? you should make them in style (YOU DO). so there.

    um. i need pictures of this DW/Sherlock bf. stat.

  36. I bet your boyfriend is "RUDE. AND NOT GINGER." Sorry. I saw a ginger comment up there and couldn't resist, even though that's the wrong doctor. Seriously though, Doctor Who and Benedict Cumberbatch = match made in heaven, and we need pictures, stat!
