Happy Manic Monday! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend whether you celebrate Easter or not! And with that, I'll just get right to today's look!
I love these pants but I don't know why I have a hard time styling them without finding Pinspiration first. The last time I wore them was back before this little blog existed and I was still taking OOTD selfies in our office gym. This is me next to my Pinspiration back then:
Another benefit to photo documenting your outfits is being able to know what specific date you wore something. These pants - October 8, 2012. Wait, 2012?? That was a whole year and a half ago! Well, at least these pants have staying power to last multiple seasons. (And is it just me, or do you also breathe a sigh of relief when you try something on you haven't worn in forever and it still fits?!)
Kellie, a resident Manic Monday-er who blogs over at ie-style.com wrote this post recently about her yellow wishlist, and it inspired me to get these pants back into the rotation sooner rather than later. I knew it'd been awhile since I last wore them; I just didn't realize "awhile" meant 18 months!
I loved the idea of this outfit, especially because I realized I hadn't worn my new red portofino yet! The color palette is definitely not for the timid, and to be honest, I wasn't sure how I would like it on me. I'm very glad I tried it on because I think the saturated color gorgeous and fun, and well, I could not resist adding a hint of leopard in there, too!

It's been pretty hectic around these parts, I can't even lie about it. I have had to travel two days a week every week so far this month and while I'm passed that now, it's even crazier trying to cram everything in before I leave for vacation!! Vacation is awesome but the week before and the week after really suck, am I right?
