Malibu Barbie called, she wants her pants back

These, are my new Old Navy pink capri pants. I managed to score them for $10.50, because they were on sale and I got an extra 30% off. I might not have normally bought bright pink pants, but for $10.50, it seemed stupid not to, and best of all - they fit and are super comfortable!!

Even more remarkable is that once I got them, I noticed that I had more than a dozen outfits with pink pants in my inspiration folder, including the one that inspired this look, which I believe is from J.Crew.

I know it's Halloween and I haven't posted anything even remotely festive, so here is a scarecrow. Happy Halloween!

P.S. I was freezing taking these photos!

You look fantastic! I love the bright pink pants. What a steal! I love your inspiration and you're right, it is hard to pull off a bun under a hat. And the little mint heels are a great touch!

Carrie said...

This has to be one of my all time fave looks from you! I adore the pink pants and the title just cracked me up! :D

eek said...

LOL - I still haven't bought the pants because now they are full price. How do they fit?

Since we celebrated Halloween over the weekend, I completely forgot about possible trick or treaters last night...oops!

Lovely clash of colours.

Kasmira said...

Oh...I'm tempted to go to my ON and see if they have these pants on sale!

I guess the high bun fits inside the crown of the hat? If the model's hair isn't too long or thick.

Style Journey said...

Your post title is hilarious! I saw these on Tara Mix and Match and loved them. Now I really love them! Even though I am on a shopping ban, I may have to see if ON has them still. Love the capris paired with the camel blazer.

I love how the neutral top balances out the bold bottom. I think I would have been too intimidated by the color to even pick up these pants in the store, but you styled them wonderfully!

Katya said...

Gorgeous look! I am in love with your amazing find :)

PS. Your comment about the model killed me! I think she realized she couldn't actually wear it, so she decided to hold it instead. Have to sell as many products in one add as possible.

I wanted to get those pants a few weeks ago, so I went to the nearest Old Navy store and they were all sold out! Maybe I'll order them online - did you feel like they were pretty true to size?

Emmett Katherine said...

The pink pants are a great find! Your outfit looks just like the inspiration picture

Um, these pants on you are delicious!! I like your interpretation better :) The shoes & the manicure - perfection. And giggling at your scarecrow comment :) Happy day after Halloween!

The Closet Shopper said...

OMG!!! I'm wearing the same exact pants on my blog today!! hahaha. That's so crazy.

I got mine for really cheap as well. Aren't they a great fit?

I love the way you've styled them. They look freak'n awesome on you. But what doesn't?

Nikki said...

This outfit is genius! I love the hot pink with the nude blazer =) Perfectly combined Lydia! Hope the temps rise a bit for you :) I'm hoping it won't freeze here for another few weeks! x

Autumn Van Weir said...

I LOVE THEM!!!

One Girl said...

CUTE! This is one of my favorites so far! It looks so effortless but so chic too. I like the teal shoes - great pop!

Shen Dove said...

Love your variation of the outfit even better than the J.Crew version!

Gracey at Fashion for Giants said...

You look great in these pants. And I can't believe the price. Maybe I should pull the trigger on them and copy your outfit (because the J. Crew outfit is silly - how *can* you wear a hat with a high bun?)

Lola Vee Vintage said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. You have amazing style! I love the pink pants xo

Hannah Harvey said...

This is a great look. Those pants are fantastic.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Ohh it looks totally J.Crew! I remember the shoes and pants from instagram. You could get a hat pin for the hat. It could work. I'm not sure because I've never used one, but it's one of my life goals to have a collection of hats and hat pins.

laura said...

the pants are super fabulous! I love the color and the cut! with those aqua shoes, they're perfect!

You pull everything off so great. How ever does the amazing Lyddie do it? I love how you find an outfit you really like then recreate it, it's so fun! It gives me hope for some of those outfits where you wonder, "really? REALLY?" yakknnow?

You did a great job creating your own version of that outfit. I like the added touch of turquoise.

Now I'm in need of a camel blazer!!
