Return of the Couch Pants

"You look like a couch" wasn't exactly what I wanted to hear last year when I decided to take a fashion risk and wear floral pants as a newbie in the office.

"Dude, you can't just tell a girl that she looks like a couch," said the guy in a cube next to our finance manager, as if I wasn't still standing there. Mortified, I sheepishly asked my question and headed back to my desk. Feeling more awkward than offended, I looked down at my ensemble. Personally I at least hoped I was a loveseat. Preferably a small one... with cute pillows and the little wooden legs.

Since then, my floral pants have been collecting dust on my colored pants shelf. Don't get me wrong, I don't care enough about what people think of me to stop wearing something because a lumberjack hipster techy doesn't think it is cool. What he may have said had he thought to filter (or what I would say myself), was that the pants were overwhelming within the outfit.

This week the sun is shinning and I had the right blouse/necklace to rock the couch pants in their full glory. I might look like a piece of furniture, but you better bet I'm going to make the room Home and Garden worthy.
