Invitation To A Pants Party

Mr. Green Jeans called...he wants his pants back!!

I was never sure about the colored jean trend...
While perusing the Gap, I stumbled upon these light mint green jeans and decided to add them to the pile of clothes I was about to try on.  I never have luck with pants from the Gap, so I did not have high expectations for any of the pants in my pile.  Well...I was quite wrong.   I instantly fell in love with these colored jeans and a pair of magenta trousers.  I decided on the jeans since the trousers were a new item and would eventually go on sale.  I did just get the trousers the other day...coupon code!!   Now that they were mine, I wasn't sure how to style them.  So, I opted for the easy tank and old standby leopard cardigan.  
I love how my first foray into the world of colored denim turned out!!

The boys wanted to pose for photos and say "hi" to my friends in the computer...

Great find with the colored jeans! I love how you paired them with the purple top.

I am definitely on the colored denim trend. I wish I could have them in every color, lol :) Heather

I have the same thought about colored jeans! Plus, the last time I owned denim that's not blue, it was a pair of white denim shortalls in the early 90's, so I tend to not have high hopes based on that experience. I like how you've styled these though - I think the green is so subtle, it could almost act as a neutral (hence how it goes with purple and yellow pretty easily).

I'm excited to see the magenta trousers! Those sound so fun!

"Invitation to the pants party" makes me think of one of my favorite scenes in Anchorman and now I'm totally laughing. Love the pants!

I feel like i never have luck with pants at the gap either - glad these worked out though, because they look great and are so perfect with the leopard!

Loving the colorful jeans and outfit going along with it. I think I tried to buy that leopard cardy but could never find my size. The whole look is adorable!
