The Bright Pant





 [dropcap]L[/dropcap]ast week we did the pattern and neutral look: we had so many awesome options!

[Tweet "welcome to the week of the bright pant- make sure you head on over to The Blended Blog to see what Shaunacey has to say about her prompt"] and also to see here who linked up and had the most clicks.  Fun fact, did you know that you can link up one of your  Instagram pics to our linkup? Yup, just add the URL from your #theblendedblogstyle post and voilà, it's there for all to see!  Now, back to the bright pant.

I actually took these pictures on the day that Abbie and I met to take her photos for last week.  I don't typically take my red pants into my spring/summer rotation because they just seem like that perfect thing to pair with freshly fallen snow. And while (cross my fingers, knock on wood) it's looking more and more like spring right now, this is likely the last time I will wear them for the year.



 I can't remember where I got my inspiration- it was a blogger and I should of wrote it down. Ah well.  But I wanted to do the black, white and red and decided to try the look out with a striped shirt.  Normally, I would gravitate to a graphic tee or just black with red.....update- I remembered where I saw the colours together...it was a post that Laura did on I do deClaire.  I started the look with just the striped shirt and jeans, but then I didn't feel like it was dressed up enough for my classroom, so I added a blazer.  Here is my version of black, red and white:






I went with my Halogen tuxedo blazer from Nordstrom - that was one of my favourite finds on our last girls' trip to Calgary.  Also, these shoes are the shoes that get the most compliments from my students.  Maybe because they're a bit strange? The shoes, that is.  They're a black and white tweed bootie loafer...boafer? lootie? by Dirty Laundry.  These also get retired to storage in the spring and summer because they are so very wintery.



  Topping off the look with pearls and red lips.  Other things that I like that are red? Wine.


A word about the red pants, if I may? The brand is Celebrity pink and they are the comfiest denim I own and the price point is awesome too, under 50$.  I found them in store at Simons (duh) and I just found them online here (I had to do a super close up on her butt to see the tag- oh the butts we study for research) but after some super-sleathing on the webs, I found them at Macy's on sale here , but they are junior, so I'm not sure how sizes would be.   I love these pants sooo much, that I had a pair 4 years ago and gave them to my cousin, Renée and then could never find a pair that was the same, so I bought them again, but in a different size- yay!  So that's that on my celebrity pink love....I may or may not be putting some more spring/summer friendly colours in my panier chez Simons...

  23. Deena, you have the best sense of style. Honestly, I could never pull those shoes off, yet when I see them in your picture I thought, "I love, I wish. I want." I really like this outfit because you can wear it causal, as a mommy or a coffee date, and for work with that blazer, which I feel is a perfect staple for a work wardrobe. I also really like the pearl necklace and bright red lips you added to pull everything together. Also, this post reminded me that I need to find a new stripped top because mine has a pin-sized hole in it.

  34. Love the bright red pants! it's funny I have a pair of red pants but I'm just waiting for the weather to cool down so I can wear them, haha! It's autumn here in Brisbane but the summer temperatures are continuing! I'm worried it's going to suddenly switch to being really cold, ha! At least I'll be able to wear my jeans though!
