1990'S PANTS ARE BACK, WUW & FREESTYLE LINK-UP


The Pants from 1990 something are back and man am I ever glad I hung onto them. Culotte denim at its best!! Every year when my garage sale would come up, I’d hold them up and say “Do I or Don’t I sell em’?” A little voice in the back of my head kept saying...”they may come in style again and your butt does look cute in them!” Imagine my fashion delight when this Year they are BACK BABY!!! 

Love this Chunky White Sweater And Reversible Necklace.

  1. You make this outfit look so good Andrea! I haven't quite jumped on board with wearing culottes but I do like how they look and the wider leg pant. I think it's the shorter length that I am weary about. Kind of like midi skirts. At 5'0 feet tall and already stumpy, I feel like it will make me more stumpier! I don't think that's a word but I am going with it!! I want to try the pumpkin cake you featured. It looks delicious! Happy Wednesday!

  13. Well I learned a lot from this post! First, I want to try all of your recipes! The chili and cake sound amazing! And second, I didn't realize your house was so new. You've done an amazing job decorating it and your porch is beyond fabulous. Hope you have a great time at your blogger meet up next month!

  14. You were smart to save them! My girls love the 90's styles that are out now and would something that's authentic and "vintage" like your jeans even more. I love how you paired them with a chunky white sweater..seeing lots of chunky knits in the stores for fall. Your front porch is gorgeous and just waiting for those fall decorations. That cider pumpkin sheet cake sounds amazing. I'm getting excited for the fall flavors of pumpkin spice everything but it's super hot here too. You must be so excited for football season! Sounds like a lot of fun. I'm going to check out the Five and Travelers. Hope you are having a great week!

  15. It's not amazing that the styles come back, because that always happens. The amazing thing is you can still fit in those, Andrea!! Now that's an accomplishment!!
    How fun to have a meet up like that. I get to meet Lana next week when we will be in Seattle before we take off on our cruise!!!

  19. Loving this outfit! Those jeans look great on you and it's a good thing you held onto them. I have a pair of wide leg dress pants that I kept that I'm excited they're back in style too. Not sure I'll exactly be able to get into them this fall, but maybe in February?! One can only hope lol. Enjoy all the football time and I can't wait to see your office/craft space!

  29. Love those pants on you!! Chris does not like white chicken chili like that so I never make it but it SO good!! I also have no idea why he does not like it. If you can offer any advice on how to change that let me know haha. Anyways! Your porch is so gorgeous and how do you like that book so far? I enjoy a good thriller so I'm always looking for new ones! :-) Have a glorious day!

  30. What in the world do you put in your ferns to make them grown that big and lush?! They are GORGEOUS!! I water mine every day and they do not look anything like that. Lol. Are you putting some kind of plant food in them? Watering them multiple times per day? What am I doing wrong?!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yay!! I hope you’re enjoying The Perfect Mother as much as I did!! Girl, I would SO love to have you and Jay over this weekend for our college football kick off party! I’m sure the Irish will be on at least ONE TV at some point!! And I am so happy that little Mr. can play this weekend! I hope he brings his team to victory! Love ya AND those 90’s pants!! Rockin’ Mama!!

  32. Thank you for the book recommendation. Your meals this week sound really good. Loving the 90s style. That would have been perfect for Rory's 40th birthday party!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, you are right, what goes around, comes back around. I use to wear culottes all the time but can't even imagine it but I'll probably give in and get some. I've long since gotten rid of the ones I use to have. Got to check out that chili recipe. Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I just finished the Perfect Mother and really enjoyed it! I just love your front porch...can't wait to see what you do for fall!

  35. Yay for keeping them and getting to wear them again! I am reading for all things fall food. That chili/soup looks so good as does the sheet cake. YUM!

  40. Im a fan of the culottes (or guochos). Target had the best ! They were everywhere in the stores this summer but I didn’t see a lot people wearing them, but then of course in my town, everyone is old fashioned. I have a pair wide leg jeans in the closet that are waiting on a comeback!

  41. That porch is going to be loads of fun to decorate this fall. I think I may start some fall decorating next week! May need to pick myself up a PSL to enjoy while I'm decorating. SO excited about fall! I love your side braid and this outfit is so fun and cozy, too! I have yet to get a pair of culottes. I have been craving chili lately, hope the crazy hot days stay away for now!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh my! I am loving your porch and those beautiful flowering pots! I tried to keep mine alive during the move, but I think my parents forgot to water them! I need to find some fall pots and pumpkins to decorate asap!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Cute post! I wish I could pull off those pants...I'm sooooo short! I did get a pair of tan linen drawstring pants with a high, wide cut leg. Haven't worn them yet. They need a smallish top and I'm not so smallish yet!! Wish me luck on yet again another diet!

    Enjoy the rest of summer. Your fall sounds booked! ;-D

  53. I swear to God when I see teenagers now and they are wearing what I wore in high school (scrunchies, GOD NO!) ribbed tight striped tops (BAD IDEA) I just want to run for the hills. But at least they won't think my annual pictures were bad now huh? I need to make that cake. You've came a long way baby! Love your home! xo
