Style Perspective: Colored Pants on the Hiking Trail

Finally sunshine and warmth here in Saskatchewan has found us once again!!!!!!  The weather was so amazing today that we ventured outside to soak up the vitamin D and work off the endless chocolate that has overtaken our pantry, cupboards, the girls bedrooms and my meal times.  I saw this post on FB and unfortunately it's pretty much bang on about how I have been feeling for the past three days. 

 

Logan, the girls and I headed out to do some hiking and we saw several chickadees that ate right out of our hands.  

What did I wear?  Well, I was inspired to wear my bright pants, which just happens to be the Blended Blogs style perspective stem for the week; make sure to head over there to see how others styled their colored pants.  I've been contemplating purchasing a spring colored pant but honestly I just haven't gotten around to it and I am kind of trying NOT to buy clothing right now.  Anyway  I dug out my fall/winter pair of maroon pants and just styled them to work for both mommy daytime and for the office.  What I wore today was the chambray, an old time favorite, the pants, my puffer vest, and rubber boots for the hike (I usually would have worn my lulu's but I was too lazy to change after taking a few pictures for the post) 

For the office, I'd style it more like this.

And I have to share with your this light, perfect for the spring, dove patterned, cap sleeved t-shirt, with a knitted back.  It'd beautiful, my pictures do not do it justice, but I know I will get a ton of wear out of it.

  2. Gorgeous combo and yay to this beautiful weather (and holidays). I love the outfit with the chambray and vest...I could totally create that look too. Speaking of which, I have yet to break out the Hunters...going to find them now! Thanks for participating- I always love seeing what you wear!

    1. Thanks Deena. Hope you are having a great week off. Sad news, my new Hunters, like 2 weeks old, and the fabric on the back is already coming apart. :( I am hoping they will have some in-store and I can just exchange them.

    2. I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU HAVEN'T WORN YOUR HUNTER"S YET?!?!?! Seriously, I have been wearing them multiple times a week for at least 6 weeks. . . . Okay. As I wrote that last sentence I realized that you have duck boots, so likely those got worn a lot with the slushy weather. This makes more sense now! LOL I agree with you on Bo's outfit. I LOVE the chambray and vest. Love your fashion posts, Bo!

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I know exactly what you mean about the search for the pants! I searched for the perfect fit and color last fall as well and then I finally found them only to slip on the ice last spring and put a huge hole in the knee. A few months ago I came across these at Banana Republic for $10!!!!!! I couldn't resist. The chickadees were so sweet and my girls eyes just lit up every time a little bird landed in their hands.

  9. That first image made me giggle, as I'm eating a chocolate Easter egg as I type, ha!

    Love how you've worn your burgundy pants - the chambray shirt looks great with them. I wish I had a chambray shirt to wear with my burgundy pants - finding the perfect one is on my wishlist! :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by Maci. I know the chocolate has been my nemesis for days now. At least you have an excuse, you just had a baby, you need extra calories to produce milk, :)

      It took me FOREVER to find a chambray shirt that I liked. Not too big, not too thick, not too bulky. I finally found this one at the GAP a few years ago, I am pretty sure it's the same one I have in my link above. Best of luck on your search.
