How I Style It: Colored Pants

HAPPY TAX DAY!  Today I’m linking up with 5 of my blogging buddies for the very 1st “How I Style It” link-up!  This is a new monthly linkup where we all get together to show you how we style our favorite fashion trends, and invite you to join us in showing off your passion for fashion as well!  
Bloggers: scroll to the end to get the details and link-up:)
This month, we’re having a Colored Pants Party!!!  Guys, this is probably my #1 fashion trend that I hope never goes out of style.  And if it does, I’ll probably still carry on the colored pants torch. There’s just soooo many ways to style them!
You may remember me talking about my 2-year hunt for a pair of mint skinnies (if not, read here). I found these earlier this year at Old Navy and luckily they had my size in.  I felt like I’d hit the jackpot!  Yes, the saleslady probably thought I was nuts, but my excitement couldn’t be contained.haha  
I’ve always loved mint + periwinkle together, so I pulled this shirt out from my closet.  It’s an H&M find from last summer, but the scallop details are very on for this season’s trends.  Since I paired two pastels together, I went with very neutral accessories.  For all that I love bright colors, I love taupe too!  This necklace is my new favorite accessory, and it was a steal for only $7 at Walmart (I got 2 colors in it)!!!

Shirt: H&M, $12 (old, similar)
Pants: Old Navy (sold out online)
Purse: Kate Spade, old (pretty, pretty)
Necklace: Walmart, $7 (in store)
Watch: Coach (old, similar)
Shoes: Target, $6 (sold out, similar, similar)
Sunglasses: Target, $16.99 (similar, similar)
Also, because I keep it real around here, let’s be honest about these pictures.  I’m lucky I got any because we were at the park on a beautiful day with Kane.  Kane could care less about mommy’s blog pictures, and wanted to play instead.  So these were snapped quickly as we tried to chase him down and keep him in one spot long enough to click the button:)

Stayed tuned to the blog for the announcement of next month’s linkup!
