MandCo Palazzo Pants. Fancy Free

You all know I’m a lover of flared trousers right ?

I have been so busy this past week, having the grandchildren to stay, I can tell you they totally wore me out!
Some peace and quiet  now is what I need, now all is back to normal . So off I went to my favourite park round the corner for a nice leisurely stroll…..

This look that I’m sharing with you today is all about my comfort. These trousers were gifted to me from MandCo  A pair of Palazzo pants, light as a feather and so easy to wear.

I can’t tell you how comfortable they are, I chose black  to see me into the winter months (you could wear tights under these and no one would know) I will be wearing these with a cosy slouchy jumper when it’s cold.

And when I get home, I will throw on a baggy T or vest top, this is just as good as lounge wear ! I will be putting my feet up and watching a film. One day’s rest, It doesn’t hurt every now and then does it ?

Don’t get me wrong, I had a great time with the grandchildren, water fights, shopping (I had two of the girls) so it was really nice, and they love all the parks in London. Do you have children to look after in the holidays?

The back part of the waistband on these Palazzo pants are elasticated for movement and comfort-ability another bonus. But if you look at the back, you wouldn’t know it. One of the reasons I have chosen to wear a top covering the waistband. I hate elasticated waistbands on show

This park I’m strolling in is called Syon Park it’s so beautiful here and always peaceful. Today it’s warm, but really windy ! Hence the hat !

    It is a fabulous thing to find a pair of pants that are stylish and comfortable. From the way you've described them, you could wear them all day long and not feel out of place in any situation. They suit you well and your photos are stunning. Thank you for adding your post to my Fine-Whatever link up.

      Thank you Rena. Style and comfort = You can't go wrong x

    I think you feel the same way my mom did after our visit to them, although she wouldn't admit it and still misses the kids and wants them back, but I know she needed a break. They are a load to handle. You are looking awesome in palazzos. I find it's hard to wear if they drag on the floor when you are vertically challenged like me. Thanks for linking up to

      Thank you,I have had to wear my highest heels with these.x

      I was totally worn out Jacqui, but they were great fun . Glad you like the trousers x

    This is such a gorgeous look. I am swooning over those amazing pants!

    Love the outfit – and that's a fab park too. Haven't looked in M and Co but I do like a pair of wide legged trousers too, so very flattering 🙂 Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo

      Thank you Stephanie. They are really easy to wear. I'm glad you like them x

    At my age comfort above all else. These look absolutely fabulous. Almost like you're wearing your pajamas. But at the same time sleek and stylish. And there is a lot of sweet inspiration to be had when you are so comfortable. Pinning!

    • August 20, 2016 / 7:17 pm

      Mary! That's exactly what they are like. Very comfortable. Thank you for stopping by, I am glad you like them x

    Great pants, but that shirt really caught my attention! I love the color and the interesting zipper front. Very pretty!

    Thanks so much for linking up On the Edge of the Week! I hope to see you again this week.

      Thank you Shelbee. This is from a brand called Karen Millen. It's a few seasons old, but you might find one on ebay x

    You look fabulous, as always! There is nothing quite so wonderful as a pair of pants that are comfy and make you feel like a million bucks. That orange top is extra special too with the fun zipper and the pop of color!

    Forgive me for taking so long to comment, Laurie! I do look at all your posts–I just get behind in letting you know that!


    • August 17, 2016 / 6:13 am

      Sherry ! We all get behind, well I do. In fact I'm always behind ! That's why I'm so grateful. Because you make time for me x

    I love palazzo pants – you are right, they are so comfortable yet stylish! Your black ones look great and are so versatile! I love them paired with the orange top and can totally see them in fall with a sweater!

    Nice to see palazzo pants on the fashion scene. You've inspired me! A relaxing evening for me includes sitting around the outdoor fireplace with the fam!

    I honestly just love coming to your site every week for a fashion fix and I relax into your wonderful blog. You definitely deserve a day off or two after the work of looking after grandchildren. I love the orange on you especially the hat and flares always look so classy and for comfort what's not to love! Thank you again for a lovely post X Lou at

    Lovely trousers Laurie, they look so comfy and stylish 🙂

    Thanks for linking up 🙂

  16. August 10, 2016 / 10:30 pm

    You can't go wrong with a pair of classic black trousers. I like the comfort of an elasticated waistband, but like you I prefer a top that covers it. I love your orange top and very stylish hat. It sounds like you've earned your rest, enjoy and put your feet up!

      I wish I could Emma. A mother and mother in law in hospital is rather challenging at the moment ! xx

    Reflexology puts me to sleep. For several long hours too 🙂 as does a nice Swedish massage. And while I'm a fan of looking at palazzo pants on others, they certainly do not move the earth for me 🙂 I'm much too vertically challenged to pull them off, Laurie xoxo

    • August 14, 2016 / 10:52 am

      I love Reflexology too.I don't do massage though, never liked it. Thanks for stopping by xx

    Hi Laurie, Hello 70s! I used to love Palazzo Pants then and I was so happy to see them come back in style. I have a few pairs of long pants and a few short. I love their comfort and you can wear them with so many different things. The elastic waist is a god send for the over 50 ladies, like me. I can't believe I actually said that lol Thank you so much for sharing with us at #SimplifyWednesdays Pinned, Tweeted, Shared

    LOVELY LOOK in these elegant palazzo pants. I don't think I can pull them off because of my height but you have certainly inspired me!

    • August 14, 2016 / 10:49 am

      You are only an inch shorter than me Angie ! It's all about the heels . Thank's for popping over xx

  22. August 10, 2016 / 2:11 am

    Love this look on you. Palazzo pants are so fun and with these being black they are slimming and chic. Love your top too. The zipper front and fitted back flatter from all sides. I take care of my Grandson regularly, so I understand how they can wear you out. But they are precious aren't they!
    Lovely outfit, lovely day, lovely lady! Thanks for sharing. – Amy
