Item of the Week: Pink Pants

Colored pants are popping up everywhere this season, and as tempting as they may be as I wander past the windows of J.Crew and GAP, it's a trend I've been initially weary of-- mainly because of the nineties flashbacks. Brightly-hued denim conjures up a deluge of memories for me, from the days when back-to-school shopping involved an annual trip to J.C. Penney's where my mom would pick me out a pair of Arizona jeans in every color of the rainbow. I've spent so many years cringing over the pictures of me in school colored jeans and giant coordinating hair bows on school spirit days. After spending the last decade seeking to redeem myself, am I really ready to let go of all the progress I've made? Thanks to the overwhelming amount of inspiring images of stylish girls in hot pink pants popping up on Pinterest lately, I don't think I'm going to have the strength to say no any longer. I definitely foresee the introduction of pink pants to my closet this spring! Here are a few of my inspiration images, and below I've rounded up my favorite pink pants in every price range!

  3. Kaity: You're one step ahead of me! The other two colors on my list, besides pink, are cobalt and coral!

    Amanda: Sounds like you're on the same page as me! With pair number 1 being sold at Target for only $22.99, I definitely think I'll jump on the bandwagon soon! I hate to spend too much money on trends, but I'm thinking new pants for $23 is justifiable... kind of a win/win situation! :)

  4. I had to laugh at the mention of Arizona jeans in every color with a matching hairbow; that was my childhood too! So funny! Zara has some great colored denim and pants that always seem to be on sale (I totally bought a pair of bright orange ankle pants for $19 last fall). And I may have just bought those Fade to Blue skinny jeans...thanks for sharing the link!

  5. Kayley: That is hilarious! I was really hoping that someone out there would relate to my childhood of colorful Arizona jeans! I love Zara so much, somehow I'd totally forgotten to check out their colored pants collection. Also, I love that you bought the Fade to Blue jeans! Such a good deal!! Thanks for your comment. :)

  6. I went to the mall to buy some red skinnies around V-day and ended up with coral instead - love them! American Eagle has a bunch on cute colored pairs if you can stand their weird sizing.
