Easter Egged

 Necklace - gift
Sweater - swapped
Trousers - Express Editor, thrifted
Pumps - Poetic License, ebay

In hindsight - I look a bit like an Easter egg. I have been in a horrible rut of black and grey clothing. So I endeavored for an outfit that contained no black, no red and no grey. I am going to warn my readers - Expect a lot of red based outfits out of me. It's probably my favorite color when it comes to clothes. A power color if you will. But today - I'm feeling springy, wishing for warm weather with all the snow still on the ground and continuing to fall.

Now to talk about these OMG PINK pants. I love the fit of them. They've got that sort of long and lean 70s flair. I even hemmed these puppies and they are still slightly shoe-eating. I'm hoping that another run through the wash draws them up just  a wee bit more. I realized they were new-stock from Goodwill when they practically shrank a whole size in the wash (thankfully I bought them because they were a little big! and I knew they were cotton). I'm warming up to pink. I think it works better as pants than as a top for my auburn-red hair.


  1. Love them! You are so bright and colorful today - perfect for a dreary winter day :)

  2. Ooooh, me too! Those are some fabulous pants!

  3. I like the pants but, I'll be honest I probably would have gone with a more neutral top... I'm a chicken :)

  4. Oh, so pretty! I have pink cords I haven't worn least a year. I will have to pull them out. Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. I like pink and purple together! I have an outfit in my closet right now I have been meaning to wear that's pink and purple. Both color's look pretty with your hair.

    And I am a red person too. Love it.

  6. Those are crazy, whackadoo, FAB pants! Love them!

  7. I love all of the color you've been doing recently! I love the idea of color for pants, and it really does work with your hair color! Bravo to you for rocking such awesome pieces..I need to take a cue from you and stop being so safe with my color choices!

  8. Awesome pants!! I love the colors!! Heh, I wouldn't have thought easter egg until you said something! Its super cute though! And cold weather definitely warrants color in protest! :)


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
