Outfit Post: Breaking out the Green Pants

It has been a while since I've done an outfit post.  I just looked over the last outfit posts and I wanted to cry ... I didn't realize I had gained so much weight. That would be another blog topic, but I have been working out lately!!  I'm pretty proud of myself - I almost finished Jillian Michel's 30 day shred.  I had one day left and I was so sick I took a break this weekend for 3 days, I didn't want to kill myself today since it is my first day back to working out and I am still a little sick, so I did level 1 instead of level 3 this morning.  Anyway, we'll talk about that later - on to an outfit post:
 I LOVE clothes - if I could make a career out of dressing people and making them feel amazing in what they are wearing, I would do it in a heart beat!  Just a pipe dream of mine...
I have been wanting green and red pants for a looooong time.  I am picky and cheap so I kept looking.  Then, one day looking through a JC Penny Black Friday ad I spotted a beautiful kelly green pair for only 10 dollars.  But, they were a Junior's brand and I am not a junior anymore.  I stopped by and tried them on anyway and they fit surprisingly well.  They didn't have the color I wanted and were out online also so again I kept looking and waiting.  Over Winter Break I found a pair (and by then I even went down a size) on a random trip to JC Pennys.  Then they sat in my closet for about a month.  I finally pulled them out to wear on an engagement shoot since I had nothing else to wear (you know the situation - a hamper overflowing with dirty clothes and nothing I like left to wear even though I have plenty of options).  Well, that went so well I decided to go for it and wear them to work one day.  That and I still hadn't done laundry ...
This is a lot of typing for an outfit post!  I decided to pair them with a black top, a blazer, and some black flats to tone it down and keep it professional for work.  I love the outcome!  Fun yet still perfectly appropriate for work. 

So, what do you think?  Do you like the green pants?

I think you look amazing. I'm in progress with weight loss too. I think the green pants look great on you, but I'm pretty sure I'm not bold enough to try it myself.

I love that jacket. shows off how tiny your waist is getting which is amazing. Those pants are def a statement piece.

I miss your outfit posts and think you should start it up again.
