AJ Wears :: Printed Pants

I'm not gonna try and explain these pants. Every so often, I buy something that I truly love but feel the need to explain to other people why I bought them. And after the incident with the cheetah diaper pants of 2012, you'd think I'd never buy into the current "track pants" trend that seems to be going around right now, but I'm a crazy person, okay? I felt a little bit like an extra in The Devil Wears Prada today and I'm totally okay with that.

Pardon my wrinkles. I can't be bothered to steam my pants during my lunch break. I rarely have time to even sit down and EAT during my lunch break. We'll call this working girl style.

AJ Wears :: Navy Stripes

Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter Weekend! Ours was low-key and wonderful. Today's outfit is a simple weekend look - I always like to add a little punch to my weekend outfit by wearing tops with some oomph. My husband said this one looked like the back of my shirt was tucked into my pants, so oomph! There it is.

Also, 3 out of 4 of us wore white pants on my outing today, because, Easter WHITE PANTS TIME. That's the official rule, although I rarely observe and usually just wear white pants whenever I want. If it's good enough for Stacy London, it's good enough for me.

Top, Anthropologie (similar from Anthro).

Flats, Jessica Simpson (exact).
Bag, Kate Spade (exact).

AJ Wears :: A Floral Midi

This skirt is ridiculous and I love that about it.

I'd probably never be able to wear it to work or the grocery store, but the Arkansas Derby? You betcha. This was the perfect costume for a day at the horse races.

Same thing goes for the fascinator. Don't ask why I have one, I don't know. Also, don't ask why I'm not looking at the camera, because I don't know that either.

Skirt, c/o Choies (exact).
Top, Theory (similar from JC Penney).
Heels, Zara (similar, on sale).

As for the races, I won a couple of bucks and got to hang out with these lovely ladies, so the day was a success. The man at the drink counter kept calling me "The lady in the pretty skirt" every time I came to see him, which was pretty hilarious.
