Lolli, Lolli, Lolli…

“…get your adverbs here.” OK…so maybe not adverbs but that’s what I hear in my head when I see these pants. The J Crew Bright Dahlia Lolli Pants are amazing IMO and perfect for this holiday season if you are looking for an alternative to a dress or skirt.

I saw these in-store and on a new SA and she looked fab. I went ahead and tried them on and really liked them but didn’t get them. Little did I know these pants were all the buzz on the inter-webs and then I saw them on Debye, where she looked FAB in them.  I couldn’t stop thinking about them and was waiting at the store when it opened the next day. I ran straight to my “Lolli’s” and tried them on once more for good measure. As Debye said, they are very lightweight, unlined and the color is TDF!

I tried on an 8, and only because they didn’t have a 6, which I know now would have been snug on me. The 8 sits on my hips and the length is the perfect ankle length. I am debating on whether or not to get them hemmed so they are more cropped like they are meant to be (27 inch inseam).

They are sold out online but I’ve seem pop-backs daily. Have an SA or your personal shopper do a WWFIFY because my store did have some smaller sizes available as of Friday.

I was able to immediately wear these this weekend to our neighborhood holiday party. It’s basically our ladies luncheon but we get to bring our husbands. I was afraid Husband would make a comment about the color and not like them but he only mentioned the shoes I was going to wear. I was going to wear them with my Flannery Platform Peep-Toes but he said they were too “flashy” for the crowd we would be in and I had to agree with him. I opted instead for some small wedge Cole Haan’s which were perfect since I stood most of the evening.

Here’s my dinner outfit from the night before. Notice the sweater color? And I did wear my Flannery’s that night.

Anyone done shopping yet? I am almost done. Just a few little gift cards to get and another present for Husband. He’s trying to spoil his Christmas so I’m looking for something he’s not expecting. He figured out on Amazon that he can look at what was purchased from his wish list. He doesn’t know who bought what but just like a kid to “shake the box” and “inspect the packages”.

Have a great evening!

    The pants are adorable! I like the color a lot. I would totally get them hemmed to be a bit shorter if you want bc I bet with your weather it would work. here in WI, not so much, unless I am the one hosting the party at my house. I couldn't go out in snow with cropped pants. I am totally jealous of areas that one can do that because I think the look is fun.

    and those shoes!!! I *heart*them!

    I love that song! It's sad…but I know several of the Schoolhouse Rock songs…I think that officially makes me a nerd! :o) I have the flannerys too and love them…they're gorgeous!

    Wow – you look incredible! I need to try those pants on now and the shoes ROCK!

    The pants are adorable. I'd hem them so they hit at the ankle. It is such a cute style that I'd pair back to pointy kitten heels or sandals. I have a pair on their way to me-but the jury is out until I try them on.

    I agree — get them hemmed, esp since you wear heels. That's a brilliant color for you. Me likey 🙂

    I'm surprised about the flannerys being dressy. I would think shoes are the one bit of flair you can get away w/in a dressed down (?) crowd.

    Wish I would have bought the Flannerys… they are amazing! The pink looks great on you. I think getting them hemmed is a great idea. Like Pamela said, we can get away with it with our weather (um, high of 78 tomorrow?!?!?)

    You and Ema both in the same day! LOL I wouldn't crop the Lolli pants, but maybe hem them as Julie suggested. Unless I wore them with high heels, in which case they are perfect length! They look cute!

    I love that color on you. I have the double serge pencil skirt in bright dahlia and I adore it!

    I adore those pants! You look fantastic.
