A night out featuring Tropical Print Palazzo Pants

Hello Hello!

Ever since I bought a palazzo pants on a whim two years ago I have been hooked, wearing it sometimes three times a week. I did purchase two after that one but they could never quite match it. My criteria for a good palazzo pants is that the legs have to be extra wide. I also do not want my bum to be showing. As a matter of fact, if the pants make my bum look flat, I am happy.
