A better WIW for today: Paratrooper Pants

Just something goofy I wore to a reiki/massage session today. I wanted to wear something that wouldn't get ruined by massage oils, so I used these ancient Miss Sixty parachute pants (normally pajamas these days). Tucked into boots with an old fitted utility coat.

Call me crazy - or stumpy... it's not the most leg-lengthening outfit ever - but I'm kind of liking the weird factor.

    Would wear this in a heartbeat. Love the baggy pants tucked into these boots. I've pinned similar looks and now will pin YOU!

    Completely adorable. I want to look like this.

    Yes, you can pull this off. Playful and quirky. Massage? Sounds like the best part of the day!

    I would never call you crazy or stumpy:). This is not a leg lengthening combo, but it doesn't have to be. It's funky and fun and if you feel good, why not:)

    Unexplainably attractive

    Who needs to look like Long Tall Sally when you can look this adorable?! I'd wear this in a heartbeat too --- I think the weird factor has a strong cross-genre appeal!

    Like this a lot on you. The coat really pulls it all together.

    Not every outfit needs to make legs look longer. The military urban vibe of this one looks great as is!

    I love those tucked into boots -- not stumpy at all!

    Really fun proportions! I like the look a lot, it has a weird-in-a-good-way cuteness to it :)
