The Wrong Trousers

Sweater - c/o boutique in SoHo, Tank - H&M, Jeans - Aeropstale, Shoes - F21, Watch - Vintage, Bracelet - ModCloth
If you get the reference from the title of my post, we should seriously be friends forever. Even if you don't get the reference, I would like to be friends...especially if you love this sweater as much as I do! I picked it up at a boutique in SoHo when I was in NYC, and I instantly fell in love with its neutral shade, as well as its delicateness. I also really dig the bat-wing sleeves, although my sister and I call this type of shirt a "flying squirrel shirt." You'd understand better if I was actually doing my flying squirrel pose below, but I couldn't get it quite right. Yeah, it's OK if you don't get us. We're used to it.

The reason why this post is called The Wrong Trousers (aside from my desire to make the reference) is because I am not happy with the pants I am wearing with this outfit. I wanted to wear this top and shoes with a medium-washed, slightly (if at all) distressed, slim-fitting, cropped/cuffed jeans. Unfortunately, I don't own those trousers, so I made do with a pair of pants I already had. I don't totally hate how it turned out, but I don't totally love it either. What do you guys think? I will definitely be on the hunt for a pair of cropped jeans like the ones I described this season. I can think of 10 different outfits I'd want to wear them with!

On another note, I totally adore this bracelet I got from ModCloth. It has the most darling and delicate cameos (which I love, see HERE) and it is so perfectly named the "Mr. Darcy Bracelet." I just had to have it, and I love wearing it. It makes me feel so Elizabeth-esque.

I'm so excited for the weekend! We're planning on taking a day trip somewhere (maybe to the coast?) to take advantage of the spring weather, and then we have Easter church and dinner with the boyfriend's family on Sunday. The dinner is great because we work up an appetite every year with an Easter egg hunt just for us "kids" in the backyard. The AWESOME part is that the eggs are filled with cash! It's the greatest tradition. Honestly.

Have a great weekend and happy Easter everyone! XOXOX

I think this outfit looks great on you. I love the top, and I think the pants look fine with it. If you do get another pair of jeans, make sure they are the same cut as these; they really work well on you.
