Fall Colors, Revamped

I'm not much of a "pant" person.

I feel trapped in them, caged. And by the second hour I start to desperately wish they were snap offs like basketball players have, and that I could dramatically tear them off no matter if I'm at the gas station or grocery store. Sweet, glorious freedom!

But when I saw this limey green pair in the Forever 21 window on State Street on my way to work, I decided this could be my chance to suffer for my art. And, oh, they are worth the pain. As you know my heart hurts when I'm not in head to toe color, so this pair is probably going to add years onto my life.

To living well and prospering! (God, I'm such a nerd...)

  2. I'm kind of in love with how much of your Tumblr is food-related melodrama.
    Story of my life.

  3. I feel exactly the same about tight trousers- I do feel imprisoned especially in jeans type material as the seam up against my leg is awful (I don't mind BIG trousers!) These ones loook so so nice on you! Enjoy your longevity!

  7. You definitely know how to mix together bright colors! I'm pretty jealous - I always stick to basics and neutrals since that's all I know how to wear. The daisy print top is perfect too!

    Happy Friday,

  9. You put together such great looks with color and prints! I too kicked and screamed when pant season started this year, but its cold enough now that they are worth it for the warmth. Can't wait to see what you do with this great pair of yellow pants!

  25. I feel just like you do about pants...I've NEVER liked them from the moment I was born...they just feel so confining! But I do also have a pair of really soft, stretchy coloured jeans from F21 that I've taken to wearing quite often :) Wish they were the same colour as yours!

    I love this 'ode to pant'! The brightness of this pant makes me incredibly happy and combined with the blazer, its perfection!

  38. I love your pattern mixing, the layering, and those yellow pants. This outfit is amazing! and I totally agree with you about pants-- I'm rather well-endowed in the behind, so pants prove difficult when I'm trying to be decent and sit down at the same time. No matter the rise, it seems like I'm either accidentally barely mooning someone, or I'm wearing mom jeans. So I'm not a fan of pants.
    But you look awesome.
