Coral Pants, with a Fall Twist?

Friday, September 9, 2011

The jury is still out on my take on this color combo... I'm not sure if it's fun and complex or if it looks like sushi and poo. I've had some troubles with these Gap pants, I knew I liked them, but didn't really know what to do with them other than neutral tops. So...

I used some of Kendi Everyday's looks as inspiration... here and here:

And here's my version of it today:
Pants: Gap...Blouse: Odille via Buffalo Exchange...Cardigan: Target...Shoes: MaddenGirl via Ross...Bag: D&B via Buffalo

Here's my issues: this blouse is silk, a great print, lovely details like the knotting/draping at the neckline. Buuut, it has tie sleeves (go back and look at the photos- gun show? Or wadded bows in my sleeves?), it's sheer and the tie front is very low, which means whatever cami I'm wearing gets a major presence. The pants are a great color, but make my rear look like a pancake. Am I totally overanalyzing this?

Anyway, it's the end of a short work week that, in my opinion, is never going to end. I think I may get stuck working late, too, since my boss has had family stuff aaaall week and we really need to get a major mailing list settled and get the envelopes outta here! I'll be honest, I'm sick of the boxes of envelopes loitering, I will cheerfully stay until late evening if it means I have approval to print labels and get this stuff moving.

Happy Weekend, ladies!


  1. I think it REALLY works! It's interesting, and looks like the pieces were made for each other. To me, the bunches from the tie sleeves just look like natural bunching on the cardigan.

    I have some coral capris, and I though I would have to put them away for next summer. Thanks for the inspiration to hang on to them a little longer!

  2. Hahaha "sushi and poo"! That's funny. =)

    I think the sleeves look fine! And I really like the whole look. The coral capris are really cute!

  3. I'm actually not too fond of colored pants for myself but I love them on others. I think this would be the perfect color if I wanted to try the trend out. It's actually not too scary of a color and goes really well with the floral top. I totally didn't notice the knotted sleeves at all!

  4. I'm actually looking for inspiration for the next Everybody Everywear challenge, which is colored pants. This is super cute!

  5. I'll be honest, this was my EB:EW test run. Great minds...
