Sunshine on Monday

One week ago I got the keys and signed the lease for a brand new apartment! I’m all moved in but still in the HGTV decorating process. So be prepared for some posts that will make this seem like an interiors blog in the next week or so!

Until then, I’ll stay on the style track. Starting with these yellow pants I found last summer at Target. I thought I should bring a little sunshine to your Monday!

Same Outfit Different Colors

A few weeks ago I posted about one of my favorite looks- maroon skinny jeans with a cream crochet top. See it here! Well this week I took the same look and changed it up a little bit.

I wore this outfit to church this past Sunday… now I know when you see this you might gasp and think “My word! Why is that girl wearing jeans to Sunday morning church services! That’s not a dress and that means it isn’t appropriate!!”

Well I’m throwing those rules out the door. Why am I doing this?

Two reasons.

1. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a lady dressing up her denim or pants for Sunday morning services. Jesus loves me in a dress, pants, or even sweatpants. Which is really a miracle because sweatpants do absolutely NOTHING for me.

2. Dresses these days are entirely too short. I have the most difficult time finding appropriate length dresses! Now, I know I’m on the taller side of life and I am mainly legs but good grief! I’m only 5’8″ here people! Work with me!!!!

Anyways… now that I’m done with that little rant… I’ll just move right on to the outfit…

What did the boyfriend think about these pants? Well… apparently they are the exact same color as a yogurt he once saw… which means these will forever be referred to as my yogurt pants. I suppose I can live with that…

Let me know in the comments if you liked this look better with the mint skinnies or the maroon!

Stopping Traffic

Happy Wednesday ladies and gents!

I’ve been staring at a blank screen for what feels like forever trying to think of what to write today. Well let’s be real, it hasn’t been forever… I’m being slightly dramatic. But, since I can’t come up with anything to say maybe I should just skip this part and move right on to the outfit of the day (which is one of my favorites so get excited!).

Yes, yes I should. So the outfit of the day involves red skinnies, a white tank, and my denim jacket!

Colored Denim and Crochet

Since yesterday’s post was jam packed with little tid bits about yours truly I think today should mainly focus on a new outfit post… I know, you haven’t seen one of these in a few days… my bad.

Moving on! One of my favorite trends that has emerged over the last few seasons is colored denim. I struggled like no one’s business to jump on that train but now I’m here and I love it! If you look in my closet you’ll basically find a rainbow of denim. Which colors do I love? Well let me just tell you… pink, mint, mint with polkadots, burgundy, black (that counts as a color in my book), yellow, white with a dainty navy pattern, and red. I’m still looking to add a great green and white jean to my collection so if you know of any good places to find those let me know!

The color of the day is burgundy! I’ve paired these jeans with a cream crochet top and booties. Then I topped it off with a gold watch, gold bangles, and some fun mint earrings for another tiny pop of color!
