Ensemble Saturdays: Pushing the Limits of Comfort

Ever buy something that you normally don't wear but convince yourself it's a fashion experiment?  Or maybe your S.O. isn't a big fan of it?  Well, allow me to introduce you to these harem pants!

Last Spring, I bought these pants on a whim.  I was certain I could pull off the look and thought that even if not, at least I would be going out of my comfort zone and having some fun in the process.  So, I brought them home, thinking the Hubby would totally support my vision and admire my fashionable bravery.  Yeah...not so much.  He hated them, adding that he felt like I buy clothes he doesn't like a lot.  Well, I was a bit crushed to say the least.  Nevertheless, I wanted so badly to wear them without fear.  (I mean, they are so incredibly comfy - like wearing pajamas!)  However, I must admit, I can count on one hand the number of times I've worn them and this post makes it four.  (Lesson learned: sometimes getting out of your comfort zone is just plain uncomfortable, even when the item in question is comfy.)    

In this ensemble, head-to-toe:  earrings-H&M, necklace-Loft (also seen here), sweater-Loft, oxford-New York & Co., bracelet-Loft (also seen here), pants-Loft, shoes-Forever 21 (also seen here)

To keep the look "safe," I kept the rest of the outfit pretty demure (probably not a bad idea when dealing with more trendier items). 

So what do you think about harem pants?  Are they a no or a go?  Do you take fashion risks or stay in your safe zone?
