My fav this week: Colored pants

Friday, May 23, 2014

I'm not writing a list of favs this week. I have been a space cadet all week and am not confident I can compose my thoughts enough to come up with 7 or 8 things I love and write something eloquent about them.

Having said that, I do want to share something I'm loving. It's no secret for anyone who has read any of my posts. Colored pants are my NEW fav!

This is a big deal because I'm a jeans or black pants kinda girl. Color on my bottom scares me. For real. Until this year I haven't ventured out much as far as colors go. Not even khaki. As I mentioned here, I'm terrified of spillage. BUT I'm branching out and brightening up! I'm happy to report I feel a lot more seasonal AND I haven't spilled a ton of coffee on myself yet. Actually, that's a lie, I spilled coffee on my print pants last week (the white part on the crotch naturally). BUT I haven't spilled every day and here's a confession: I may bring a spare pair of jeans every time I wear colored pants. Baby steps people.

Here's a few colored pants looks:



Imagine those outfits with jeans... just wouldn't be the same.
As uncomfortable as it can be, as much as you may need a pair of extras just in case... wear colored pants!

happy weekend ;)

  2. Okay, you've convinced me - your colored pants are so cute. What's your recommendation on the best place to shop for some?

    1. Most of mine are from Joe Fresh which I believe they sell at JC Penny in the US. They're inexpensive so if they don't work it's not like you've shelled out a ton of money. I got the teal pair for $10 and the hot pink for $19! Also, the pixie pants from Old Navy go on sale all of the time and I got the red ones and print ones for under $20!

  4. I am new to the colored denim as well. I absolutely love how I can dress them up to teach in. 3 years ago I would have NEVER thought I would find them in my closet!

  5. Those light pink pants are my faaaaave! I used to be terrified of colored jeans but a friend talked me into a green pair... which led to a purple pair, then a pink pair and even a white pair! The white pair is still just plain craziness since I have a toddler, but oh well! I am loving getting away from the jeans!

  6. You wear them so well!! I bought a few this weekend in anticipation of the summer challenge. I won't be buying many shorts (Seattle + office job means I wear shorts just a handful of times a year and have a few I love already). Can't wait for them to arrive and to start wearing them. I love the few pairs I bought as part of spring!

  8. Can short fat girls wear colored pants, too? haha! I have been looking for colored pants because I am definitely one who wears solid colored slacks to work. I need to do something more exciting with my wardrobe. Your outfits are extremely cute!

    1. Anyone can wear colored pants!!!! Just give them a try, I guarantee you'll love them!!
      If you're not sure, start with darker colors (like dark blue or red) and work your way to the crazy shades:)
