I recently started reading this fashion blog written by a super cute girl down South and she had written several posts involving the Lilly Pulitzer Travel Pant. She described them as "ten times better than leggings and a thousand times better than jeans. So comfortable, they keep their shape AND you can wear them with a million different outfits."

THEN. Bloomies had a crazy online sale I've never seen before. 50% off all Lilly Pulitzer, that's right all. Whaaaaat? So, I took a gamble and purchased them in navy (because that's the only color Bloomies had). With the sale, free shipping, and ebates, I paid like $45 for them aaaaand I've been wearing them like it's my J-O-B. They are so comfortable and thick. DC has been having some early onset cold weather (which I do NOT appreciate) and I am still able to wear them. The waist band and material also does a really good job of smoothing me out and keeping the dreaded-stretchy-pant-roll-down-which-then-creates-muffin-top (or in some cases, exploded-can-of-biscuits) at bay.
Way more than your average pair of leggings? Yes. Worth every single penny? Yes.
I would love, love, love to have the travel pant in black too. At $98 though, that's still a lot to swallow for elastic pants. So, I'll be keeping my eye out for any holiday coupons for the local, independently owned Lilly Pulitzer stores (sometimes they offer 20-25% off single items) aaaand saving my pennies in case that doesn't happen.
Anyone else tried them out there? What did you think?
