You ever see something on someone else and make the mistake of thinking, "Hey, I will look exactly that cute in that outfit!"
That's what's happening here. Sure, the girl on Instagram wearing these pants was taller and thinner but in my head I thought, YES, LET'S COVER MY BODY IN COLORFUL STRIPES like I'm Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat or something. Are these the most flattering pants in the world? Absolutely not. Do I care? Absolutely not.
PS - if you'd really like to see what nightmares are made of, check out the matching top. Yep, it's a set, and if you think I won't wear them together you don't know me at all.
