Thursday Moda #163: Should I Keep these Plaid Pants?!

I know this is Easter week but it has been raining like crazy and when it is not raining, I have either been at work or haven't had a chance to shoot photos. Bad blogger, since I got no cute Easter dress styled for you. I am actually running out of outfit photos that I have taken so I need to shoot soon. Anyhow, how is your Easter week going?! Looking forward to the long weekend?! I am back today with a Layered Look which is perfect for these in-between season changings. I styled my Burnt Orange Turtleneck Sweater by Target with these Wide-Legged Peach+Red Plaid Pants by The Limited (which I have had for over a decade). Which brings me to the question?!

I looked through one of my closets yesterday and filled up two pretty big carton boxes with stuff that either doesn't fit, I don't love or is not stylish anymore. Off they go to Goodwill or hopefully some I will be able to sell. My goal this year is to purge as much as possible, de-clutter, organize all of my clothes, put them all in matching velvet hangers. Now, these Plaid Pants I have had in my closet for over a decade and when I bought them, I loved them. They fit tight at the waist but still fit. They have that wide-leg/boot-cut style that is very in now. But I also don't quite like the way they fit me. I feel like they make me look older and frumpy. Plus they make my hips look ginormous, no?! Maybe they needed a hot ironing first?! I also want to try them with a light chiffon Spring Blouse tucked in, after I iron them. And see If I like them better, that way. So, my question to you all is should I keep them or donate them/get rid of them?! Please let me know in the comments.

Thank you to all who linked up with me last week and for truly loving the 'Coral Me Striped' Outfit. My multi-direction striped pencil skirt and frilly coral blouse were a hit with you all! This week I am featuring looks I loved that showed a lot of color, pops of animal prints (leopard, ikat, snakeskin) and some Easter Inspiration (like the Maxi Dress and that Adorable Jumpsuit). I noticed some gorgeous necklaces from these ladies, too.
For a casual church, Amy's 'Mustard Bell Sleeve Top' is perfect for Easter morning. Love her navy booties and garnet crossbody bag.
Lovely Jill perfectly showed 'How to Elevate Your Track Pants'. Gorgeous pants first of all and I am a huge fan of knotted henley shirts and mules. Ditto for combining blush pink with white.
Andrea is ready for Spring in those white pumps and front-tied dressy palazzo jumpsuit full of 'Lilac Love'.
At first glance I thought Debbie's cardi was in a leopard print but it is a 'Snake Print Cardigan' which is gorgeous and trendy. Her lace camisole matches perfectly.
Clothing designer Stefanie made the perfect 'Rainbow Ikat Dress'. Safaris, vacation, cruises, Easter or even a beachy wedding - this lovely colorful maxi is perfect!
'Hang in There!' Jacqui! You look so sophisticated, office-chic and ready to be the boss lady in this pencil skirt, tweed jacket, blush blouse, quilted clutch and nude pumps combination!
