Brighton Your Day

Not only did the satin floral print on these pants brighten my day, but so did the price tag. While in Chicago this past weekend, I was scanning the sale racks at Anthropologie. These are Elevenses Floral Brighton Wide Legs, and they were normally $138 down to $19.99!

When it comes to Anthropologie, I keep a running "Wish List" on their website to keep track of everything I like. It is a good way to watch for things to get marked down to either purchase or get a price adjustment (within 14 days). So those are usually the only pieces I am focused on. However, when I do get into a store something might catch my eye that didn't make the cut from just seeing it on the website. These pants were the case and I couldn't pass them up for the price. And sometimes I have found, that the random purchases like these I end up liking or getting more wear out of than something that I have been wanting for months while waiting for sale.

With all the different shades of blue in these, I want to pair them with a chambray top. But today I went with a more no brainer choice of a black turtleneck. I was wearing my bubble necklace that day in the dressing room and was pleased to see it would pick up one of the blues in the print. Boots are Sam & Libby Kaye from Target (mine are the all black color).

Brighton is the style name of these pants that Anthro seems to carry all of the time - just in different colors and prints. I had never tried them before, so I am now glad to know the fit and size for possible future purchases.

Those are so cute! What a score! I only stick to my wishlist online, too. But instore, I give myself more leeway. I would have been thrilled with those pants and the price. The blue is beautiful. I love all of your poses. You always look different. Mine are always the same. Although lately, I have been doing sideways shots, too. Soooo wild! ; )
