Palazzo Pants Please!

Palazzo pants get their name from the Italian word palazzo meaning palace. What makes Palazzos distinct is their wide, billowy legs, whereas pajama-style pants are more narrow. Usually made with soft, flowy fabric means they are super comfortable to wear and can be casual for lounging or very elegant for a grandioso affair!

I just found these palazzo pants recently at Sirens and loved the print: paisley and abstract art in black and white with pops of coral and taupe.

St. Jacobs is a little tourist town only a half hour from where I live, great for day trips. I enjoy browsing through boutiques, antique and home decor shops–always find things I like.

There are fine restaurants and places for unique photo shoots for fashion bloggers. My shrug is more coral than the photo looks, I’m wearing a coral necklace I made and coral bracelet.

There’s even a nature trail for biking and hiking along the river.

My Laurel Burch purse is my favourite handbag at the moment. Cats go with everything, right! I have two pairs of these sandals (non-leather, made in Italy) black ones and red ones. They have wedge heels and it feels like walking on clouds.

I have three pairs of Palazzo pants now, these colourful ones bought at Spanner last summer and I wore them in NYC. I bought a pair of teal lace Palazzos at a flea market in Brooklyn and will feature them in a upcoming post. They are suitable for one of those grandioso affairs. πŸ˜€

    Carmen, I didn’t know that is what you call them. I bought a pair last week and I thought they are just for summer evenings. I am learning. Love yours. Specially love that heart necklace on the last picture. Wonderful!

      Thank you Ute! I’m always finding out more and more similarities we share. How cool you just a pair of Palazzo pants! What colour are they? I bet we both like hearts too–am I right?

  17. These look great on you! I think you might have long dancer legs : )

    I adore St. Jacobs in the summertime. Try to hit that and the Farmer’s Market at the same time. We haven’t been back since last year. It is a great place to visit.

    I also like Palazzo pants. They hide a litany of sins.
