Hope the week has treated you well.
Something happened this week. Something...questionable.
I bought harem pants.
|Something very weird has happened to this photo, it's like being in a hall of mirrors. Speaking of mirrors, I wish I had a proper full length one. A girl can dream.|

I was at IKEA the other weekend and looked about me, and discovered that almost to a woman, patrons were sporting harem pants. Left right and centre. And dammit, they looked good. And comfy.
It pains me to admit this because my mother spent all of the 90s and most of the early 2000s dressed in harem pants, in particular a pair of harem pants with a sort of mustard tribal pattern on them. And reader, I used to tease the shizz out of her and say cruel things like "You better not wear those out of the house MUM!" and whatnot.
Behold here my mother's ubiquitous mustard spotted harem pants.
Sorry Mum. I was wrong. Harem pants are where it is at.
Mine are from Katie's and were a bargain I tell you. But they seem to be everywhere. There are upmarket soft pants and downmarket soft pants. I've seen them at Witchery, Katies, Country Toad, Sussan. All the big names. To quote FF.
While I was trying them on there was a gaggle of middle aged ladies also experimenting with the trend. One of them said, "Oh yes I have a few pairs of those! They are just perfect for those afternoons when you are hanging round the caravan!".
I'm sure they are. Endorsed by grey nomads everywhere.
Anyway I love them and intend to wear them every day for the rest of my life.
Have you bent to the harem pant trend? Would you rather die than get about in soft pants? Do you have a harem? Let me know! I care about your needs and wants!
A bien tot or whatever it is those French types say.
