For a while now, I have learned how to quell the beast that used to rule the shopping roost. Priorities have changed, as well as my bank account and what remains is a budget and a new sensibility of what’s on a “must have” list. But lately, the beast has been begging for a little taste of summer. So I hit up H&M, where I’ve been purposely staying away from (one wrong turn into the store can result in a 20 min $200 shopping spree) and galloped right back to my favorite section; kids. People still scoff at the idea of a grown woman shopping in a kids department, but if you are petite, and can fit into it, not only is some of the style better, but so is the price tag. But I digress, more on child’s play later. The flowy, harem pant had a huge moment, and then took a slight backseat to the pant of the summer; the palazzo. In it’s moment, I questioned the usefulness, and style of the look, not to mention how bad I imagined they would look on me. But since I pride myself on sometimes picking up on things after they’re ‘trendy’, it’s only fitting that my obsession with these flowy pants begins in summer ’15. So far I’ve been wearing them everywhere from every plane and train ride, (and there have been many), to dinner dates out. We don’t have a magic 8 ball to go by when it comes to predicting fashion trends, and how we’ll respond to them. But sometimes, a little palm reading can be a window into your summer.
