leopard + oxblood :: #whatiwore

If there are two things I’m obsessed with fashion wise at the moment, it would be prints & oxblood!  Actually I’m loving color period.  I first saw these pants on Rach over at Pink Peonies, but good fitting pants are such a PITA to find most times so while I loved them on her, I didn’t have high hopes that they’d fit me as well.  I didn’t rush out to the mall or anything, but I did pop over to LOFT a couple weeks ago to try on their new  line of jeans. I only found one pair that fit me great and they were just okay so I left without them.

Fast forward to last week, I was at the mall looking for booties, but stopped in LOFT to see what they had and was told by two store employees that I came in at the perfect time because they’d just marked down a whole bunch of good stuff.  Okay, they peaked my interest, so I dug into the sale racks to see if anything caught my eye.  I had actually forgotten about the blog post, but as soon as I saw these pants, I remembered and immediately snatched them up (in two sizes just in case!) and added them to my dressing room pile.

There were some “meh’s” & “cute’s” in the dressing room, but these lovely pants were a “gotta-have-em!”  They fit me amazingly well and the kicker, they were on sale for $32!  Score!

I keep getting annoyed at myself because I forget to get IN photos with people.  I always get so wrapped up in the moment that I don’t take any photos or if I do think about pictures, I get distracted with not so perfect lighting conditions or what I’m wearing or not wearing or how I look/don’t look and then the moment passes and I’m left with zero photos and regrets. So when we got home from a birthday lunch on Sunday, I had the teenager snapped some pics of me & the hubs.  The middle one is my favorite, but the third one pretty much sums up the hubs.  He’s got the silly gene for sure. Way more silly than I am and I’ll be honest in saying that I’m usually the one to just shake my head at his silliness, but I do appreciate it…most of the time.  😉
