The Red Pants


I was thinking about an outfit I wore in middle school the other day. A blue and red striped tee with a pedal sleeve with a pirate style lace up front and a pair of red capris with a similar lace up front (regrettably I paired this outfit with Doc Martens, oh 2002!). Sadly, I have no pictures of it. Can we have a collective "HELL YA!" for social media not existing when we were in our formative years? There was no other outfit in my 14 year old closet that made me feel more powerful, more fierce, more on top of my game than that pair of red pants. I haven't owned a pair of red pants since-- I forgot how they feel. I forgot what power they hold. I picked up these Joe Fresh Slim Cropped Pants from JC Penny (yall, have you checked JCP out lately? Because you should). They reminded me what a good pair of red pants can do for a girl. So if you need me I will be kicking ass and taking names in my red pants today.





See I told you they have major butt kicking powers.

Blazer/ Forever 21
Lace Top/ SheInside

Necklace/ Bauble Bar

Also, anytime I get to spend any time with THIS GIRL (taking pictures or not) is very welcome.

You are a total badass. And I know this post is about the red pants but I'm OBSESSED with that black top.

If Florida and Texas were closer, I'd raid your closet on the daily.

Loveeeee

You are too precious! I love your new pants. This whole no shopping thing is not helping with you showing off all these fun things.

I love that light blue blazer! It's perfectly paired with your red pants, and red and blue is such a superhero combination too! Have fun kickin' butt!

I love this outfit, too cute! I really need to get a pair of red pants. And I've been searching for a good blazer like that for some time now! Just stumbled across your blog btw, I totally agree that everything should be covered in glitter! Haha love it :)
