Many people have a bucket list. They develop a checklist of sorts with all the things they want to accomplish before they die. From visiting exotic lands to eating bugs or learning a new language, anything goes when it comes to your list. Playing off this idea, I developed a different list for myself – a fashion bucket list. Included in my fashion bucket list are all the interesting styles, designs and trends that I have been longing to try. A jean jacket (can you believe I’ve never owned one?!), leather leggings and floral pants were at the top of my fashion bucket list. That was until last week, when I happily crossed off floral pants from my list.
These may in fact be the perfect floral pants. They wear like pajamas (so soft and comfortable), and the darker color palette is especially suited for fall. For this look, I rolled them a bit at the ankles to show off a fabulous pair of booties from Nine West. Up top, I added a black cami and shear, white button-down tied at the waist. Accessories I kept simple, with a pair of cluster necklaces – one long, the other short.

I couldn’t resist adding this last pic of my daughter and I. We always take blog pictures in the park so she can play, but today she wanted to get in on the photo-taking fun! The Apricot Collection mission is to offer stylish clothing that suits the special needs of women who happen to be mothers, so I thought this picture reflected that well. As moms, we need clothing that looks great no matter what the day brings – from working, to making dinner, to chasing the kids at the park. These pants definitely fit the bill (the 4″ heels on the other hand….not so much).
