These pants are from Nadia Aboulhosn’s latest collection for Addition Elle. I’ve paired them with a top from her collection from last year. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to find enough occasions to wear them, but I loved them so much I couldn’t not buy them. I’ve actually worn them twice since I bought them a couple of weeks ago. The first time was to the grocery store 🙂

I’ve long admired a white jean…on the rack. However, whenever I tried a pair on, I became convinced that white jeans were developed as an international conspiracy to create an article of clothing LESS flattering than complete nudity.You know, a pair of pants that say “Hey leg cellulite, let’s make YOU the star of the show!” And while I’m not at all ashamed of my cellulite, I’m rarely looking for a pant that makes it the focal point of my look. Then I found these at http://thebay.com and I started to think that maybe everything was going to be ok.

This post is very much a celebration of the fact that, for the first time, I went on vacation with only 2-piece swimsuits. No 1-piece to fall back on. For me, the joy is not about conforming to a certain beauty standard or showing certain parts of my body, but all about loving my body exactly as it is and wearing what makes me feel beautiful.
This is what I wore to my work holiday party this year. I would post my New Year’s Eve outfit, except that it consisted of underwear and a T-shirt, given that I spent a quiet night at home with my boo. TBH, I was pretty proud of the fact that I rang in the New Year without pants.
