OOTD - Floral Ankle Pants



It might be a little too early to celebrate, but the weather has slowly creeping into the positives and feeling a little bit like Spring.  As much as I'm celebrating the arrival of a new season - especially since that new season isn't Winter - it brings on the new challenge of transitioning one wardrobe to the next.  These Anthropologie floral Charlie trousers are a great piece to start adding into your Winter clothing rotation to ease into Spring.  The floral pattern is beautiful, and the colours are rich enough to pair with a darker Winter palette. I especially tend to rely on a leather jacket during the Winter-to-Spring transition for it's warmth and versatility. Read on for all outfit details and additional photos.

Bag - Phillip Lim

These floral Charlie pants from Anthropologie were a great find that I picked up at the end of Fall;  they were in their sale section and were further discounted with a coupon code.  These are my first pair of Anthropologie pants, and they won't be my last - the store is a great resource for bold patterns and statement pieces.  I especially appreciate the fact that Anthropologie has a generous petites section, as this shorty has the hardest time finding pants and blazers that fit properly.  My only caution is to size down - I got these floral pants in my normal size and between the generous fit and a bit of stretching, I really could have gone a full size down.


What are your favourite ways to transition from one season to the next?

  1. Love this! Those colours in those pants make them the perfect transitional piece. I need to start frequenting the sale section of Anthropologie. I never seem to find anything that works!
