Pink

These bright pink pants are a bold element on their own, but I decided to do some subtle print mixing as well.

I wore this outfit shopping over the weekend. I went to Marshalls where I found tons of things I wanted, but none seemed to be in my size. I was especially bummed about a pleated mint hi-low skirt that was only in a size large.

I then drove over to TJ Maxx (since its only a little ways down the road) to continue the search. No mint skirt, but I did come home with a navy maxi and I almost got a pair of Ray Bans. I may have to go back for them.

This is a great look Lydia! Love the pants and also the printed top! THere was an accordion pleated hi-low mint skirt at Zara earlier this season...I am not sure if it's still in stock.

Lorena said...

I adore those pink pants, they are such a great statement! Love the little print mix! Can't wait to see that maxi and hope you can find your mint skirt soon! I'd been wanting one for so long but no luck, so decided to make my own, is on my blog now!

I like those pink pants,and they definitely work well with the neutral print.

Ali said...

Awe, well I'm glad you got some things on your trip! I've been having trouble finding my size, too. I'm sure that the magical clothing fairy is watching over you and merely wanted you to find some other things instead in the fuuuture. ;) I know that feel, though~ I'm either inbetween sizes or the size that may fit isn't in stock. Darn! Sometimes, I want to order things offline, but I'm not sure how they'll fit...

I think you look supa fly. I adore those pants on you and they're just the most exciting shade of fuchsia EVA. That subtle print mixing of yours does your outfit justice, too.

Amber said...

these are my fave pants of yours. They made me go out and find a pair like them for myself :)

Alyson said...

I hate looking through the racks at Marshalls or TJ Maxx with the hopes of finding something fabulous. I went to Marshalls too at a different town, and I had no luck either! I did go to Old Navy and found some deals.

Those pink capris are beautiful.

Alex Elizabeth said...

I have been wearing my pink pants way too much lately. But I love them. I would wear them again tomorrow, but I wore them Saturday, and last Wednesday, and... yeah.

Ahh the dreaded no sizes available... that's pretty much the story of my life in New York, where 80% off the shopping I do is consignment. Only one available. I squished into a Thakoon dress over the weekend, but it was not meant to be. I did get a red lace top though :)

Nnenna said...

You always find the best things at TJ Maxx- I so need to visit the one close to me and take a browse!

Very original combination - pink pants and black and white top. You wouldn't believe they go together, but they do.
