thursday threads [winter blooms]

Thursday, December 13, 2012
i love when clothes can go from one season to the next and i was super duper excited to take my mng for jcp floral jeans ['member them from here?] into the colder months. 

thanks to the many colors in the pants themselves, there are a bunch of ways they can be styled. for example [and appealing to my neutral tendencies], they would look absolutely fantastic with a cream colored chunky knit

but because i'm actively trying to add more color into my white/grey/cream wardrobe, i threw on the brightest, reddest sweater i could get my hands on:

 [nordstrom rack sweater - similar, mng for jcp floral jeans - similar, h&m booties (old), rebecca minkoff mini mac]

 [oh face, why do you do this to me?]

it was pretty warm the day i wore that, but if it were chillier, i would have thrown on my pjk patterson j. kincaid army jacket and called it a [stylishly successful] day.

p.s. for the record, hubby still doesn't like these jeans.

p.p.s. [i'll leave you with this] i have a sneaking suspicion that the neighbors are catching on to me. they probably [totallythink i'm a [very short] supermodel that enjoys running around in fields, making funny faces, and experimenting with crazy pants.

do you ever get looks when you're taking blog pics? [and as a follow up, is it ever appropriate to stick your tongue out at said lookers?]


  1. Psht, I get weird looks when I take photos or do my books out in public. LOL. And go for the tongue out-- my inner four year old is doing a cartwheel with excitement! You go girl!

  2. Love the floral pants on you!

    When I take photos in public places, I do get looks from bystanders or cars driving by. haha.. I just ignore them. Sometimes I would love to stick my tongue at them but I don't unfortunately. :P

  3. Love the floral pant. Follow each other?

  4. Found you through the blog hop i'm co-hosting! Thanks for linking up, follow back if you'd like :)


  5. You must do an interview with your neighbors & see what they really think ;) Love the pants!

  6. I love the asymmetrical hemline on that sweater! So fun!

  7. I love when something works for all the seasons, and these floral jeans totally do. I love them with that red sweater!

  8. I am sure people think I look like a total moron when doing outfit photos, haha.

    These floral pants look cute on you! I like how you've toughened it up with the boots x

  9. I love your floral pants! Don't worry, my husband hates anything "fashion forward" as well :D

  10. Haha, husbands are so funny. The things my husband likes and dislikes is very interesting. And he usually hates all trendy things until I explain to him why he shouldn't. I have converted him to being okay with peplum and colored jeans. Still working on patterned jeans. ;)

    I for one love this look though! Love the darker pants with the bright tangerine top. I've heard that tangerine is supposedly "the color of the year", and it's everywhere this winter. Love it on you! :)
