Some day my prints will come.

Pants: Old Navy/ Top: J.Crew/ Cardigan:  H&M/Boots: Hunter/Watch: Michael Kors

So. I constantly talk about my hatred for pants. I just don’t feel feminine or special in them! However, when I saw these beautiful printed pixie pants at Old Navy, my war reached a ceasefire. They remind me a lot of the J.Crew medallion pants, but they were about seventy dollars less expensive. So, YES. They are currently $25 online, so I’m tempted to scoop up another pair. They have them in about ten adorable prints and colors, so, lots of options 😉 I used to be scared of printed pants because I figured they wouldn’t do my bottom half any favors, but I’m coming around to it, and I love how much pizazz they add to an otherwise plain outfit. 

I paired it with my J.Crew tilda top (that I have in two colors…oops), and a navy cardigan for H&M. I WAS wearing cute, nude flats earlier, but Michigan weather strikes again and we got hit with a snowstorm. So…hunters it is. I have to just hold on to the small instances of spring that we’ve been graced with this week. Soon, all the gray will be over and i’ll regain my piece of mind. At least, that’s what I sincerely hope.The whole aesthetic is very patriotic, which I am always a fan of. I think this is a great transitional outfit and I’ll definitely be repeating all of these pieces throughout the season! 

Much love and more posts coming your way!

Horrah for the yellow and blue

Ok, today is the last day of all this “polar vortex” nonsense but a templates of a whopping seven degrees plus an 8:30 class made one more day of pants in order.

I am unintentionally wearing my school colors today but I think I like this combination much better in these brighter, more pastel tones than in the fluorescent “maize rage”
That the entire campus plasters themselves in during football season.My philosophy is that if I dress in colors that are reminiscent of spring, spring will come to me. Solid thinking. I think with that logic, I’d be a great politician. So keep on the lookout for a pasty-white, J. Crew clad sarcastic girl gunning for the presidency in 2032.
Speaking of J. crew, I am obsessed with this jewel-collared oxford top. I have it in two colors, this blue and white. I think the sparkle at the top is the perfect amount- not too much to make it overbearingly “dressy” but just enough to make any other piece feel special. This cashmere cardigan is super comfortable too, and the yellow is a welcome pop of color from the dreary blacks and grays this month typically brings. These pants are the old navy “rockstar” cords, and they fit fabulously and are available in every color under the sun. What’s not to love? I swear I have shoes that aren’t these riding boots, just so you all know. And I promise I’ll wear them eventually.
I hope you all have great days!
Much love,
Sarah.
