If the pants fit...

Pants: Kohl's Apt. 9 | Shirt: Forever 21 | Jacket: JCP | Boots: Charlotte Russe | Necklaces: J.Crew & F21 |  Bracelet & Glasses:F21

...buy them! And that my friends, is what I did. I finally found a pair of mustard ankle pants that did not look like they were painted on. I say "pants" because that's what they are. These are not denim material and I think that's why they fit better than all the other yellow ones that I have tried {ahem, Old Navy skinny jeans}. Another plus, I can wear them all day without having "saggy booty" syndrome. These are definitely my new favorites. I got them last week and have already worn them twice. Who knows, I just might wear them again tomorrow.

*Disclaimer - Yes, I am wearing a jacket. Yes, I know it's not cold enough to wear one yet. Yes, you may call it fashion editorial, if you will. I did wear this outfit all day, however I just added the jacket to spice it up a bit for the blog. Call me a poser, but I will call it adding special effects.

Swoon! I love mustard, it's my hands down favorite Fall color.

I bought a plaid shirt yesterday and I thought... I feel like Shanna right now. Which, by the way, is a great thing.

Penniless Socialite said...

I love those pants! I tried them on at Kohl's but they were all out of the size I needed. I am sad now. I also did not like the Old Navy ones. Holy muffin top!

Head to Toe Chic said...

You look so pretty!!!!! I love this outfit. I saw the mustard pants at ON and have been wanting pants that color ever since. I never tried them on though so I may check out the ones at kohls. This is the perfect fall outfit!

Xo,
Angela

Ruthie Hart said...

dont be freaked out if one day you come home and find me in your closet trying on all your clothes and jewelry!! that first pic is just gorgeous I love the prints, colors, sunnies!

Holly said...

Shanna! I love those pants! I want some colored pants like that that aren't jeans that I can wear to work to spice up the ol' work wardrobe! These are perfect! I agree, the Old Navy Rockstar skinnies are awful. They do have the Sweetheart in colored skinnies. I bought a red pair and want the mint pair. Try those. They don't feel "painted" on, and believe me, I'm not a fan of my thighs feeling like sausages!

AWESOME outfit!! And I know exactly what you are talking about with the pants! I have tried several on from different place and have had NO luck! I am definitely checking these out at Khols!

P.S. I love the barn, the truck, and the wagon. I could actually use the wagon for our wedding. Just ship it on over and I promise to return it. ;o)

I ALWAYS have issues with colored denim looking like they're painted on and it is most definitely NOT attractive. Thinking I need to head to Kohl's and try out colored pants instead...love this outfit!

And I have a pair of sunglasses that are almost identical to those and they are by far my favorite pair...love em!

Landi {Freckled Confessions} said...

You look adorable!!! I would look so ridiculous in mustard yellow pants - but you are totally rocking them! Love that serious pose in the 3rd picture ;) Go girl!

Chelsea Alise said...

I have rust colored skinnies that I need to pair with something, andddd this looks like it would be a perfect match with my booties! =)

One question - super random...

what kind of socks do you wear with your booties? I always feel like my socks are showing when I wear regular ones!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

You are one adorable lady!! You must be a Delta Z ;)

But really, look at you!

And yay for the link up. Going to do it!

Love the outfit, Shanna! I think it's cute that you added a jacket, not poser-ish at all. I would do the same thing to get some good outfit pics. In fact, I'm smitten with my outfit today and may go home and straighten my hair to get some cuter pics.

Oh yes, those are much better than the ON ones! Which are in fact painted on my thighs. I appreciate your special effects because I would've have thought to put my denim jacket with these. Most likely since I get all hot and sweaty just putting them on...

Morgan | xoxo, me said...

AHHHH! You are ADORABLE!!! I love the new mustard pants, and the pieces you paired them with are perfect!! I would wear this outfit in a heartbeat. SO stinkin' cute.

This is my favorite outfit. I adore EVERYTHING about it. And I am proud to say that I just picked up a pair of mustard yellow cords at the Loft. I cannot wait to break them out. So big thanks to you Shanna! And I love studs so I must ask where are your earrings from? I love them (as well as everything else about this outfit as I'm sure I've made abundantly clear...)

Aren't those pants the most comfortable colorful pants ever?!?! I have ever color from Kohl's. I don't usually ever shop there, but for some reason tried these pants on and couldn't stop buying them! Love it! :)
