Fun Pants!

How can you not love a cheap thrill?


These pants came from Forever 21 as did my top, and I am always thrilled when I can find something really interesting and on-trend without going over my (ever-changing) clothing budget. I flat-out refuse to spend too much on things that are super trendy, as if I'm going to drop $300 on a sweatshirt that looks like it was thrifted for $5 just because it walked the runway! Bah!

I initially saw the pants via one of my favorite style blogs, Chasing Davies, and I instantly had to have them. They're definitely a bit daring, but with a neutral top and simple shoes, you'll be looking chic and feeling  good all day!


I put it with a multi-colored, multi-strand necklace that a dear friend gave me as a Christmas gift so the top didn't end up looking too blah


And, of course, my current favorite accessory to show off is my Birthday/Valentine's gift from the Hubby. I've been wanting a nice watch for a while, and my guy really delivered this year (he totally caught me off guard with this one). This is definitely arm candy that I don't have to yell at about how to properly load the dishwasher.

Top: Forever 21 (out of stock in Black) $19.80 (similar)

I hope you all have some fun shopping adventures and find a piece (or several) that can make you stand out and feel special!
