My Style: When in Rome, Buy Green Pants

7.21.2013

One of the awesome things about having a birthday is that people give you money (I'm talking to you, Mom, Justine, and Laura).

I've been craving a pair of colored, skinny, crop jeans (hello, adjectives) pretty much all summer. I don't know if you've noticed, but they're all the rage. Because apparently the 70s are back. I LOVE NEON! I don't really, but you get my point.

Anyway, this weekend I took my birthday money and headed to the store.
It was difficult sticking to my original purpose (skinny jeans) because the stores were filled with sales and cuuuuuute shirts and shorts and shoes. But be proud of me, because I carried on and didn't buy the cute Gap shorts for $10 that I was eyeing. 

Instead, I gave myself a pep talk, stepped out of my gray/black/white comfort zone, and came back with these (you're welcome for me putting makeup on before I took these pictures):
Necklace: Caroline G. Shop
Shirt: Target
Jeans: Gap Outlet
Shoes: Target

What do you think?

I'll tell you what Jordan thinks: he thinks they're weird. To be specific, he said, "You bought THOSE?" Then, when I came out wearing them for our movie night, he said, "You're wearing those in PUBLIC?"

Whatever, dude, you don't know fashion. I told him colored pants were all the rage, and he rolled his eyes. Men. Can I get an amen?

I bought green pants because it was the only color that had my size in my price range that wasn't pink. I don't do pink.

I think I like them. I've worn them twice in the past 2 days and felt rockin' both times. (I feel I should add that right now I'm only wearing these to indoor events due to the heat).

What summer items are you craving? Do you have a pair of colored jeans?

  5. I think they're super cute, and a really good fit. I love that everything else in the top picture is from Target. We need to go to rehab.

    I have a pair of cobalt blue pants I bought last year that I wear on occasion and my husband pretty much responds the same way as yours.

    I always feel pretty fancy in them though.

  17. Very cute! I approve of this use of birthday money! Jordan doesn't know what he's talking about, as I've found is true of most husbands when it comes to fashion.
