i walked into the jcrew event last week and was immediately drawn to an adorable simple striped tee and some fab red floral pants. the problem these days, is that it seems harder to justify spending $150 on pants that are a. "trendy" at the moment and b. may only fit me for another month or so...
however, the combo was slightly to die for and i couldn't help but think i could find it somewhere else that would be affordable and work! it just so happened a girlfriend of mine asked me to help her update he wardrobe and one of her stops was forever 21. lo and behold, one of the first things i saw walking into the store were these pants and i just couldn't help myself. $20 vs. $150 was a done deal and they actually fit like a dream. i got them one size bigger so i can hopefully wear them as long as possible and will just belt them once my belly has shrunk down to a normal size :)
point being, i absolutely fell in love with this combo and knew i had to share.
what are some of your favorite prints to mix and match?!
