all about comfort: my printed daisy trousers


Anyone that has known me longer than 10 years can tell you that my style trajectory is quite surprising. You see, when I was in highschool I was a jock and by default all my clothes were athletic-wear and back then that meant sweatpants with field-hockey written across the back and a zip-up or hoodie with my last name on it. Everything exuded my sports-centred life, either with my shirts that were earned from my personal or team accomplishments or my hair that was always neatly pulled away from my face with a thin Adidas hair-band. I don't like the term "tom-boy," it seems to indicate that sports are still for boys and when girls play them they are somehow more boy-ish or not upholding the social and sexist constructs of what it means to be a girl, but I digress.

For me, as it is still today, it has always been about comfort. I played competitively at a high level on 3 different teams at the same time and whatever time I had left I needed to eat, do homework and get sleep through the muscle aches, injuries and general fatigue. This meant that I prioritized comfort when it came to my clothing. This mantra has stuck with me. When I was in my early 20's I had to give up sports, sadly, because of health and this opened up the door for me and I suddenly went from the sweatpants-girl to the girl that always, without fail, wore a dress, because they are so comfortable (and I know some people will disagree with me on that, but I have never found jeans or trousers to be comfortable).

As I transitioned to my late 20's, clothing technology had advanced--I mean jeggings are a thing--and I found that trousers and trouser material became breathable, flexible and most importantly, comfortable. This summer was the summer of the trouser for me and one of my favourite pairs is this daisy print one from New Look. I wore it in Greece on hot, long, outdoor excursion days, I wore it in London when I knew I would be on my feet walking around the city until late, I wore them to the Perch Opening where I knew that I would be comfortable while still looking stylish...they're almost like my new form of sweatpants and my style trajectory seems to have come full circle.
