Top: Old Navy Cardigan: Target Pants: JCPenney Flats: Payless Necklace: From my mom
You guys! I finally got my butt in line and am able to participate in Heather's Pinned It and Did It link up! It's amazing what a little pre-planning can do :)
I am not always the best at looking back at my Pinterest boards to actually make my pins come to life, and I had forgotten about some of the gems I have pinned previously. When I saw this pin (from the blog heart of a blonde), I knew I had to recreate it for this challenge.
I got these pants last month while shopping for work appropriate pants with my mom. I mentioned yesterday that I prefer wearing neutrals, but this hasn't always been the case. When I was growing up, I was absolutely obsessed with bright colors, particularly pink and lime green (the walls in my bedroom were lime green for a few years...). These pants are mostly black and white, but they have a little splash of lime and I totally love them. They're a perfect blend of "old me" and "new me." I thought my neon green top would look nice with the pants as well, and I actually really like how the look came out. It's definitely my own take on the outfit from heart of a blonde, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out!
Oh, I also tried to take a detail shot so you could see the print on the pants better. It was really awkward trying to take this shot, haha...oh well. I have tried before to take a similar shot but including my top half and I cannot get it to look right. Anyone have any tips?
