Colored Pants Obsessed

Helloooo friends. Hope you are doing awesome! Justin and I have had a case of the sicky sickies and it is NO fun! Luckily we are on the tail ends of our colds, and basically all that is left are the nasty coughs that keep us up all night long :( But we're crossing our fingers that we are 100% better by the weekend...

One of the main reasons why I love having a style blog is that I get to see how my style changes over the years. A couple years ago, I wouldn't have been caught dead in colored pants. But now? Let's just say I own coral, light pink, bright pink, maroon, light blue, and cobalt blue pants... mwa ha ha. I just love them so much! And they're all from American Eagle. I can't get enough of their pants, plus they have great deals frequently! I don't think I've paid full price for any of them.

I've said this before, but I love colored pants because one pair can double your wardrobe. With this outfit, if I wore black leggings or regular jeans with it, it would look completely different than how it looks with maroon pants. The outfit itself is simple, but the maroon pants add some personality :-)

Blazin' Hot Spring

Good morning, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. There's nothing like a cute blazer to get me feeling fresh and ready for work. I love this cute navy blazer from My Sister's Closet Boutique. It is so classic! To break up the formalness, I layered it over a polka dot shirt and wore my light pink pants from American Eagle. My Sister's Closet Boutique has adorable clothes for amazing prices-- I especially LOVE their collection of skirts! Be sure to use the code LUCKY to get 15% off your entire order! This code expires April 11th!

I adore the combination of navy blue and light pink! Funny story-- when Justin and I got engaged, we had originally planned to get married in November. Since it would have been more of a winter wedding, I wanted our colors to be Navy with light pink flowers. But then we decided to move the wedding date up to September, and I wanted even lighter colors. So yep, navy and light pink are our wedding colors that never happened ;) but this color combo will always have a special little place in my heart. hehe.

Lady in Ivoire: Spring Edition

HAPPY Friday and first day of spring, friends!! Have you entered the Pink Desert giveaway yet? Be sure to do so! :D I am so excited for this weekend. Not because we have anything cool planned, but because I've caught a cold and I just want to sit around and do NOTHING. I'm so boring ;)

I love spring. It's earth's way of getting out of a longgg nap, and the world feels refreshed again! The weather here in Oregon has been nice some days... Then cloudy and foggy the next! I definitely cherish the bits and pieces of sunshine we get. Maroon is one of my very favorite "fall/winter" colors, and by wearing it with a bright blue cardigan and delicate lace, I feel it works for spring as well! great. of course I had to wear my favorite sandals with this outfit!

I love that my cardigan totally matches my chalcedony ring from Pradman Jewels. I have pretty small fingers, so it's really hard for me to find rings that fit. But Pradman Jewels carries some gorgeous rings that are adjustable, and can fit little fingers, too. Be sure to stop by their site to check out their gorgeous jewelry!
