How I Styled It Link Up: Colored Pants

April 15, 2015

How I Style It link up Garay Treasures

Welcome to the first How I Style It monthly link up party. I have the pleasure of hosting alongside several other bloggers to bring you this themed link up and as we have been advertising to you the theme this month is colored pants and how we style ours. Today I will show you how I styled mine and then I hope you will link up any recent post containing how you styled colored pants.

To begin, I never thought these photos would make it onto the blog (or at least this season I mean) as these were the first shots I took with my mini tripod and new camera and it was honestly no picnic asš I was learning the camera and how to stand the flimsy tripod up correctly and I worried about trespassing onto this closed restaurants property that day to shoot these and well lets just say that whole day was a mess. As you can tell in all of these photos save one I look like a mess, but my outfit sure doesn’t.


If you see what I see, then you see a coat on me. These were taken a few weeks before spring when the weather was starting to warm up but definitely still warranting a coat or jacket in the mornings. Here I show you my vintage Michael Michael Kors coat, a scarf, black shirt and leopard print flats to minimize the bright cobalt blue pants you see.


I look as mad as a hornet somehow, pardon my serious “I hate you” face.


A cool shot of my shoes and bright pants


There you go, I cracked a half smile. Folks this may be the first post that you see me completely serious and mad in, but I sure wasn’t mad about these pants. You can check out the outfit details here: Pants: via Plato’s Closet (similar here)//Shirt: Charlotte Russe (old,similar here)//Scarf: Merona via Target (old, similar here)//Shoes: Mix It via JC Penny but bought at Plato’s Closet (similar)//Coat: vintage Michael Michael Kors (similar here).

    Our pants are so similar! I have actually never worn mine with black; thanks for the idea! Haha!

    Haha! You look great, even with your serious face! Blue is your color and the cobalt is such a nice contrast against the black!

    Those blue pants are so fun! I love the shoes too! Sorry, I didn’t have any colored pants looks to link up so I just did my post today!

  • amy April 15, 2015 at 10:13 am

    Mad as a hornet! Haha! I love the color of these pants! Great look!

    What a great idea! I love your pictures, even if you think you look mad! Taking your own pics can be super tricky sometimes!
    And I have to admit that I totally linked up 3 posts with 3 different coloured pants…. of course, narrowing it down to only 3 is making me feel like maybe I have a coloured pants problem… hmm…
    Thanks for the great link-up!

  • Whitney 'Nic' James April 15, 2015 at 11:51 am

    LOL at your serious face. I do the same thing in pics! Thanks for hosting and love the pants!

  • Rachel April 15, 2015 at 1:46 pm

    Love the way you styled your cobalt denim! I used to have a pair the same color and now I wish I still had them 🙂 These are so cute!

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom April 15, 2015 at 3:37 pm

    I seriously need a pair of pants in this color! Second blog post I’ve opened where someone is wearing these. LOVE cobalt blue. I am cracking up over your expressions!! It can be so hard to get good photos sometimes 🙂 But, you’re right, your outfit rocks!

  • Amy Ann April 15, 2015 at 3:37 pm

    How fun! I don’t really own colored pants, but I love the trend.

    I think you look great in all of these pics! Cobalt pants are probably my favorite color of pants, and I love how you styled it with the black top. My cobalt pants are thrifted too:)
