Houndstooth Dress and Pants

Houndstooth Dress and Pants

I saw this dress and pants on the mannequin and fell in love. It has a vintage yet modern look about it. But as I’ve stated here, I’ve always felt like above-the-ankle pants make me look like a grasshopper. In spite of, I found close to my size (my size was sold out at this location) and headed straight to the dressing room. Even though the pants were a bit too large, I loved the look. I didn’t think ‘grasshopper’! Nothing about this set made me look like a grasshopper. Because of this, I happily made the purchase and will later have both pieces altered.

Are you into the above-the-ankle trend? Or are these the length of pants you tend to shy away from? I’d love to know!

FYI…I normally post on Mondays and Thursdays. But for the months of November (starting next week) and December, I will be posting on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for the upcoming Holiday season. I feel like there’s just so much going on and I have way too many posts and ideas to try and fit them in two days.

    That is an adorable outfit! And those shoes, I love them!! I envy you for being able to walk in them, I would probably fall all over the place in them lol.

      LoL! Although I prefer chunkier heels (they’re so much more comfy), I still love the skinny heels sometimes. They just make me feel leaner.

    Love it!!! That pattern is OK but I like the sleeves and the cut! I would love to add this to my closet!

    Check is so on trend at the moment. What a great pattern. I would have never dared go full out with a single print but you are rocking this outfit!

      It looked so good on the mannequin that I never once thought to pair the dress with a solid color. But now I will!

  4. November 2, 2017 / 3:20 pm

    This outfit is perfect for fall and looks amazing on you! I love it!

  5. November 2, 2017 / 7:05 pm

    Love the dress. Very smooth and attractive.

    This is a really cute outfit Candy! I love that it looks very dressy, and there are so many places you could where it too!

    This is an outfit I would love to have in my wardrobe. I will have to keep my eyes out for something similar. It looks fantastic on you.

    That looks so good on you! A sorta retro, but up to date look. I love it!

    • November 3, 2017 / 9:35 am

      The retro/vintage style is what really caught my eye with this outfit!

  9. November 3, 2017 / 1:15 am

    This would make a great party outfit. I love the length of the top.

  10. November 3, 2017 / 1:38 am

    Lovely outfit, reminded me of the sixties. Elegant and fun. As always you look stunning =)

    • November 3, 2017 / 9:36 am

      I don’t why but I definitely thought of the Mary Tyler Moore show when I saw this on the mannequin!

  11. November 3, 2017 / 2:39 am

    A very classic outfit, it has a ’50’s movie vibe that I really like! It looks awesome in you, definitely not a grasshopper ?

    • November 3, 2017 / 9:37 am

      Thank you so much! That was my biggest concern!

  12. November 3, 2017 / 2:39 am

    Such a shame that this outfit is sold out! But I’m glad you got it cause you are rocking this look!

    • November 3, 2017 / 9:38 am

      Yeah! It’s even sold out online. I was going to try and get a smaller size. But since I’m stuck with the size I have, I’ll just have both pieces altered. Thanks for stopping by!

    This is so beautiful outfit, I like houndstooth prints in general and do own a few myself. I like the way you have styled it. The cap kind of sleeves looks so cute.

    • November 3, 2017 / 9:39 am

      Yes, the houndstooth print is so classic to me.
