Ms. Green Pants

Sure it doesn’t have the same ring to it as Mr. Green Jeans, but we can’t all be on Captain Kangaroo.  Also, I’m not a man and these are not jeans…

Yes, that's right, a visible bra strap - because I'm classy like that.

…they’re pants.  Green pants that I really don’t wear often enough, but thought they might be a good transitional item for spring.  The pants are “Tall” from New York & Co (via Ross) which means they’re just long enough for me to wear with flats.  I paired them with a bold floral print top (Old Navy), peacock cardigan (a.n.a/JC Penney) and some neutral flats (Kenneth Cole Reaction).

I like the fit of these pants, but I’ll be honest, green pants are hard for me to style.  I don’t wear a lot of green and have no idea what compliments it.  However, I remembered our conversation from last week about pairing items based on the colors in a print and once I spotted this blouse in my closet, it all came together nicely.

I apologize for any dog hair on today’s outfit – my dog was extraordinarily affectionate this morning (usually he’s just sleepy) and this cardigan collects dog hair like it’s trying to be on an episode of Hoarders.

Also, I still haven’t packed and I leave tomorrow.  I think I know what I’m wearing on the plane though, so that’s some progress.  And, although I’ll be taking pictures in Santa Fe, I won’t be posting anything or viewing any blogs (sad face) while I’m there.  But, I’ll be back Tuesday evening though and will start catching up with everyone and everything.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
