I’ve never been really drawn to high waisted full leg pants, readers. But, in trying on my first pair, I decided I’m actually a long time fan. I think high waisted pants full leg pants are basically the power pants of spring, combine them with power heels and horses? I’m in high waisted and horse, warm weather, power heel heaven…

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I tried out the pants both with my blouse tucked in and then left out; I think both of the looks really worked and looked quite different. It’s nice to have a pair of pants that can be versatile, which is pretty unique for pants. So, if you’re on the fence for high waisted pants (or like me are pear shaped and are unsure if they will work), just go ahead and try them on! You may be surprised; and if not, no harm in trying!
2) Initially I thought, “hmmm red shoes, how often will I really wear them?” Answer: ALL the time. I actually tend to wear colored shoes more often than “neutral” shoes, especially with neutral pants. In a conservative work environment, colored shoes add a little fun without adding “too much” fun. Depending on what colors you wear, red or blue shoes are both great options for venturing out in to the colored shoe world. You can see how I’ve worn these heels below:
Anyone else have colored shoe tips? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers!
