Easy and Breezy

Instead of mint, I went with coral. And until it warms up a bit more, a chunky knit sweater it was.
I have a ton of colored cut offs so why do I choose only navy, black or earth toned skinnies? Something about my lower half being a bright color must be what turns me off. Well, I got over it. And, I love them.

sweater: F21 // belt and flats: Target // pants: Indigo Rein

I had just a few minutes to snap these pictures and looking back on them, I seriously can't wait to wear these skimmers with flowy tank tops and flip flops or wedges!!! Excuse the overflow of exclamation points, I'm just that excited for summer wear! I played it safe with this color combo. I really like it though. Take away the leopard prints and it feels a bit nautical. What other colors would you pair with these pants?

No need for a scarf today. A kite? yes, it was breezy. But we're getting there. And by there I mean spring. In our area the daffodils are budding and some are blooming. Our lawn has received it's first cut of the year and I gifted hubby a new grill this week :) Super cool of me, I know. He was beyond excited about the purchase and I know he'll put it to good use. We've found a few "grill" recipes to help us eat healthy and stick with the purpose of doing our cleanse. (recap tomorrow) If you know of any good ones, send 'em my way!

We've got a busy month ahead of us. Where has the first half of March gone? Besides my goals listed here and all things PCS related I'm most excited for throwing back a few drinks at the St. Patty festival, jumping up and down at the Carrie Underwood concert next week, and planning Landon's 2nd birthday party for April! I'm finally ready to start on all the PCS stuff, I thank the seasons changing for that drift in my mood!


How bold would you go with these pants?
You feeling "spring" in your woods yet?
yes, I just said "woods". thought about changing it, but it's whatever!

Kimberly said...

Just stopping in to say HI! You look adorable. I am looking for some "colored" pants myself. Maybe coral and mint.

Have a good day!

Gayle said...

Love love love that outfit! A yellow shirt would look awesome with those pants (if you're going bold). :) It's starting to get warmer here, but I'm ready for 70 degree weather and to spend every waking moment outside!

Katie said...

I absolutely love what you did with this outfit! I agree with the coral and mint combo, but I am not a high risk taker, so I probably would have went with boring old white myself.

I love a bold pant! The coral is great and I really like coral and navy together! I'm totally jealous that you're seeing Carrie Underwood next week - that'll be an awesome show! Can't wait to hear about the cleanse and what you thought about it!

Rachel Silski said...

I love the coral! Gorgeous. :)

Lynette Marie said...

I absolutely love these pants on you. Girls with legs like yours need pants like this. You should see me brightly colored pants. Think sausages stuffed into brightly colored straws. Gross visual? Sorry. My muscular (or fat...) legs refuse to be cute in any color other than navy or black. LOL. Love the color scheme though! And the leopard shoe is a gorgeous touch :)

Lisa said...

Stopping by from Wednesday Walkabout! That's a cute outfit, but I have to agree with wanting to wear spring clothes.

Coral is my favorite color and this little outfit is super cute! You are such a pretty little lady! You are motivating me to go out and buy some coral pants! Love it! XO

Jessica @ Wonder Whats Next said...

I love it. You look great! The navy on top balances the coral very well. :)

Jackie said...

Lovee the coral! I recently wore red to make my outfit pop. I like colored jeans :)

Kelsey Homolka said...

How exciting and I too am terrified of doing colored jeans. Almost bought a pair a couple days ago but put them back on the shelf last minute. We bought a new grill last year but I really haven't taken the time to look up any yummy recipes quite yet. Here's to hoping we find some new recipes to try!

Jamie said...

Those pants are so cute on you!

From Foothills to Fog said...

Cute! I have a green pair of skinnies and I never know know how to style them! All I can think of is white. I love the navy and coral combo you did.

Mags Pomichowski said...

You look great and it looks like a gorgeous day. As for what colors I'd pair with those pants, I think a white top with gold jewelry would looking darling. Also, I think any print would be nice.

Great pants! I am loving coral right now. I currently have it painted on my fingernails :)

Jena Harn said...

I love those colors together! I've never tried colorful jeans - I'm open to the idea, but I'm not sure I can pull of the look.

Florida is so confused as to what season it is..

Emily said...

What an lovely outfit! It is so perfect for this time of year :) I am with you-- I wore boots today and can't wait until I can swap them out for a lighter shoe!

Ashley @TheCreamToMyCoffee said...

I think the navy sweater and leopard print flats were the perfect compliment to these skinnies, work it girl! ;)

You always look so cute and stylish. I can never find pants that fit me to my figure right. and skinny jeans I'm not sure of. but if I could rock em I'd want hot pink wants or would that be tacky. So i like hot pink can you tell. Thanks for your genuine and wonderful sweet comment today and all. i saw you followed me back on bloglovin' thanks.

I hate when I have something on my mind to ask someone and then get to doing something else and I get off track. *thinks* Oh yea....Who takes your photo's. they are great.

I do believe I'm gonna have to nominate you and Shanna for best smile! :D

I have skinnies that color and I love them! I have worn them with teal and white on separate occasions, and they always look so good! Although, I think you have the perfect legs for them, so you might pull them off even better ;)
