:: styling the window pane print ::

I'm usually anti any prints on my lower half. As any and all pear-shaped girls know, that's risky business. But this new window pane trend wants to make me reconsider.

I'm completely on board with this pattern when it comes to interiors--pillows, chairs, even bedspreads--but with apparel, I tend to just be much more picky. The size of the panes, the width of the border, how the seams match up and where exactly they land when they fall across my butt. And the black/white and blue/white combo feels a little....well, boring. But these J. Crew pants are a thing of beauty, aren't they?

Totally classy, on trend but not trendy, and paired with simple solids, they don't make me feel like everyone's just staring below the waist. They're drinking in this whole glass of water.

And the gold, the GOLD! I think I've officially abandoned silver forever this season.
