Wednesday, June 17, 2015

Happy Wednesday!!!!!!!!

All those exclamation marks are a good indicator of my excitement for this post. Not only am I sharing with you my new love for mint pants BUT once you're done checking out how I've styled my pants you MUST linkup AND enter the GIVEAWAY!!!!! Who doesn't want $200 to Gap/Old Navy/Banana Republic? Honestly, the only this disappointing about this giveaway is that I can't enter myself ;)

PLUS my blog friends and I are hosting a linkup and we'd love for you to link-up with us and share your fashion posts!


Back to my pants.

If you know me, you know of my love for colored pants but you may have also noticed that when I wear colored pants they're usually really bright or darker shades. Light-colored bottoms scare me. You can read more about my fear of light-colored bottoms HERE. Despite my fear, it's clear mint pants/shorts/capris are EVERYwhere and since I was in dire need of some fun maternity pants, I thought I'd give these mint capris a go (okay, they're supposed to be capris, but I'm kinda short so they're more like flood pants on me).

It took me a few tries to figure out how the heck to wear these capris but I'm quickly realizing they work with more than I thought. Below are some looks with mostly dark tops but they also look great with coral, yellow and white!

Any other color recommendations for me?! I've got 4-5 weeks left to style these babies so I'm open to suggestions :)

  2. You are SO cute! I have a pair of mint pants (ankle trousers & skinnies) and I have worn them with a black tee, but not a white jacket. I may try them with my denim jacket next. I don't have a white jacket, just a white blazer which may look weird. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. LOVE those mint capris. For pairings - I love navy, peach, or pink (either a light or a hot pink works well, I find) with mint. You could also do a periwinkle color, a dark teal (the green teal thought not the blue teal), a beige/khaki color, or like a darker hunter/forest green. So many ways to do mint!

  4. I have a hard time with light colored pants too, except for the lightest of all, white. Weird I know! I love your mint pair, that would totally be like flood pants on me too, haha, short problems!

  11. I think you have figured out a couple of great looks for those mint pants. Maybe trying a navy tee or a coral tee would be cute, too? All of these great clothes you have been sporting...are they maternity clothes? If so, you have to get these mint pants in your after-baby size, too!!

  12. These pants are so pretty on you. I bought a pair of mint pants a few months ago but have yet to wear them because they scare me! I see them in my closet and think "nope, not today". You've given me some great ideas though. Gorgeous as usual!!!
