Daily MelWear: Who Wears the Pants?

Every time I wear pants, it reinforces the reasons I don't like to wear pants.

However, I will say that I really adore this gray blazer with the bow belt, and I really like the red/gray/black combination. My mom was the one who suggested black pants with a red top when I found this blazer.

I'm beginning to really get into blazers these days. Last year it was cardigans every day. Does anyone else go through phases like that with certain pieces?

Belts, however...belts are forever. Forget diamonds.

Have a great Wednesday, ya'll!

{Wow, where did THAT come from?!}

Today's outfit:
Red Shirt: Ross? I can't remember now
Black Tank: Kohl's
Black Pants: Charlotte Russe
Gray Blazer and Bow Belt: Stein Mart
Tweed Heels: Wal-Mart

  4. I LOVE that blazer! Why don't you like wearing pants? I really don't care for skirts, dresses are okay, but both require too much maintenance to me. You have to make sure your legs are shaved and lotioned, oftentimes, you're either wearing heels or opened toe shoes, so you have to walk a certain way. Too much for me!

  6. What a cute blazer Melissa!!!! You look great in pants but I guess in your hot weather (most of the time) I probably wouldn't wear pants that much either!

  7. The blazer is awesome!

    Why don't you like wearing pants? It's probably too hot outside to wear them now, huh?

  10. Such a cute blazer! I love the ruffle and rosette details! You may not like pants but you do look fabulous in them!

  11. I don't like pants either, yet I wore some today! These ones were pretty good- Pants are just so hard. they have to fit perfectly right and that's hard to find. Skirts and dresses are much more forgiving!! Cute belt!

  12. Yes! I'm so into belts. I love that blazer. It's got a great shape on you. You look lovely!

    If the pants fit right, I love pants.

  13. I ABSOLUTELY get into a phase. I will get on a certain color kick, or a certain kind of shoe kick, or a hair accessory, or even a tanks/camis only thing. It is just great when you find something that really works!!!

    This outfit is really great on you. I love the light grey. And hello...cuteness is off the charts on this blazer. The rosette...the bow...the light color...AWESOME!!!

  14. I think the pants look great. However, I also know how pants can be a pain in the butt. The capris I'm wearing today aren't fitting quite right, and I simultaneously feel too fat and too skinny, something I rarely feel in skirts.

  15. I sure do!! I go through phases as well... Like right now I really like wearing black... other times I won't wear anything black at all... hehe, but I agree, BELTS ARE FOREVER!

    PS: You look great in this outfit!

  16. Belts are forever- especially when they are as cute as your bow belt! I am really into dresses- feminine and easy to style!

  17. At least belts are cheaper than diamonds, right?

    I am definitely not a pants kind of gal, either, because they just never seem to fit me correctly. A skirt or a dress is forgiving, and it hides the trouble spots, which is awesome. Boo pants, yay skirts :)

  18. Your bow belt is darling!

  19. I really like the addition of your belt to this look!

    I'm not really a pants person myself either : )
    Also being a shortie, pants often require alterations which can be pricey.

    I go though phases like belting everything, adding blazers, dresses...it's fun to change it up from time to time.

  21. That is a cute outfit! I'm getting sick of my cardigans...maybe it's time for me to try blazers!

  22. I love this. That bow is so cute and girly!

  23. That blazer is SO CUTE. I love the bow belt too and I am not one to go for bow-ed things, usually. Grey + black + red = classic.

  24. I think you look great in those pants! I am totally with you on the phases...I'm usually a pants girl but I'm in a major skirt phase right now.

  25. I'm not really into blazers (more of a cardi girl) but I really like how this one is structured but feminine as well. I'm so glad modern business clothing is lending itself to helping ladies look both professional and girly.
