Stripes and the mystery portofino

Well, I hope you don't like the color of this portofino because I couldn't tell ya what color it is! I saw it in store and loved it, but there were a couple other things I loved too that my store didn't have my size. And the line at the registers was hella long, so I decided to place my order online. Which is great, because I ended up paying a whopping $1.48 for two portofinos and a barcelona cami after online discounts and some rewards credits. Woo! 

Except, when my order came, the portofino was totally not the same color. I ordered "peach desert" which was the closest one online that matched what I thought I tried on, but it was definitely more orange than pinky coral. Luckily, I was able to do an in store exchange, so no big deal. But outside of sending you a photo of the tag, I couldn't tell you what color it is! My next best guess would be "neon coral" but yeah, I don't know!

I haven't bought regular pants (as in non jeans or non super skinny) in a long time. I decided to take the plunge on these striped pants during Loft's 40% off sale, and I'm happy I did. They're adorable, no?

I've definitely been on a pastel kick lately, but spring is in the air and has swayed my fashion mood for sure!



  1. This outfit is adorable! Actually really love the pants. You look adorable! xx

  3. Haha! Too funny! Whatever color it is, it's pretty! And love the pants!

  4. First, your hair looks great. I love the long, soft waves. Second, dang Express and their non-cohesive color naming situation! But the pants are indeed a great look! Great choice!

  6. It's so funny that Express doesn't have a color name on the tag for their Portofinos....but I love the color of yours today!! Stacie and I were just talking yesterday about loving corals and soft peaches right now! I guess that the power of Spring, eh? I adore the pants (the LOFT is one of my fave lunch shopping runs)....I could def use this entire outfit for work ;-)
