If you know me then you already know I have a deep passion for all things bright and bold! According to my mom I’v always been that way, which I find pretty cool. LOL. Anywho, I found these wonderful punchy red crop pants from H&M last fall (along with a burgundy and black pair that I have already featured on the blog) and I’ve hardly even worn them! So while randomly rummaging through my closet I decided it was time to whip these babies out and style them : )
Not that you will be too surprised, but I was that girl in high school who always wore printed skirts, cowl neck tops, crop pants and any type of high heels I could get my hands on! At the age of 14 I started shopping at Stein Mart…(yup, Stein Mart). Although it was my utmost priority to make outstanding grades and be involved in every possible extracurricular activity, I was just a “tad bit” more concerned about winning the “Best Dressed” Senior Superlative. So, yes, I spent four years of my life attempting to be the best dressed gal of the class of 2007! haha! And guess what??? I DID NOT WIN. Devastated may not even be the word to explain how I felt on that day. Anywho, I share all of this to say that I remember what I was wearing the day they made the announcement..it was this super cute knee length skirt. It was a mauve pink, grey, camel and BURGUNDY floral print skirt. I absolutely loved it. However, about 3 years ago I had to give it away as it no longer fit. But one day while randomly window shopping at H&M near NYU, I found these awesome BURGUNDY crop pants that made me think of that skirt! And to be honest these pants are way more awesome than that skirt could ever have been…they are
“SIMPLE”, much like life is now in comparison to my high school drama days! haha.
Sooooo just in case you guys have not noticed, my most favorite fall pieces are the Live a Little military jacket and my Express cheetah print infinity scarf that I have featured a couple of times on Get The Look Thursdays! Not a week goes by were I DO NOT wear these two pieces at least twice…I just love them! But because I wear these pieces pretty often, I am always looking for new ways to style them…that way they look completely different than the last time, which can be tricky. Especially when I am going on day #67 of “NO PERSONAL SHOPPING!” Anywho, I have given myself a new challenge….learning how to make the most of my closet with what I have! Sounds a lot easier said than done, right? However, in actuality, it really is quite easy. It simply takes a bit more creativity on my end.
