Much of the pretty snow has melted here and life is mostly back to normal post-Jonas.
I am really excited to be back in a blogging groove. As mentioned before, I've had a list of posts planned for quite a while, but am finally now getting around to write them. Today's post is one of those.
Those that have been following along for a while, know that every year Bryce and I head to the Waterfowl Festival in Easton, Maryland with his family. To get an idea of what the festival entails, you can check out a recap post from my first visit to the festival here. Easton is the most charming small town on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and is filled with unique and fun shops. Bryce's mom and I really enjoy taking a break from all the ducks during the weekend by logging some girl time together shopping. I really hit the jackpot when shopping this year, because I found the best pants...ever!
As we were visiting the different boutiques, I kept noticing the brand Lysse. In fact, at Chesapeake Trading Co, in nearby St. Michael's, there were racks and racks of Lysse pants. After seeing the label pop up so many times, curiosity got the best of me and I decided to try a pair on. Boy...was I glad I did!
These pants, which are also available in plus sizes, are amazing! As you can see, they are a legging style pant, but with a thick enough ponte fabric that they can be dressed up for work or play.
I would compare them to a J. Crew Pixie Pant without the zipper, much softer fabric, and a leaner price tag. Wearing them literally feels like yoga pants, and on top of that, they have a nice high waistband with tummy control. Finally, if I haven't sold them on you yet, they come in endless styles! I bought the pair styled in this post, as well as this flocked velvet pair. And did I mention they're machine wash?
I took the close-up above to show you the detailing on the pants. I love that the print is subtle enough to be a neutral, but still pushes the envelope a bit. I also really appreciate the detail of a visible seam, which makes them more formal than a typical legging. Unfortunately, I can't find this exact pair anywhere online, but this pair has a similar feel.
They run true to size and I am wearing a small.
Next on my list for sure, is a navy pair, but I am also ogling over some of the more daring styles! Snakeskin, anyone?
They also design tops, jackets, dresses and skirts. I will say, I didn't try any tops on while in Easton, because I have a hard time justifying $80+ for a simple tee shirt, BUT, if they are as wonderful as the pants, it might be worth the splurge.
You can shop all styles at Lysse's website here, but after a quick search, I saw Lysse styles were also available at Nordstrom and Zappos....which led me to wonder if I've been living under a rock all this time?
Have you shopped Lysse before?
What are your go-to brands for pants and clothing that are as comfortable as they are stylish?
Have a great day!
