Now, colored jeans are back, and I think at 29, I'm ok to wear them. I was dead set on red, but once I tried on the bright pink, I was sold. Express is running a special right now: buy one, get 50% off the second item. On everything in the store! SO, I bought two pairs of colored jeans, or jeggings as I reluctantly call them.
Are these not darling? I'm not really a regular shopper at Express, but when I want something trendy, I typically find what I want there. I also had a great coupon for an additional 40%. Both the promo and the coupon made my purchase a steal at around $80 for both pairs of pants.
The best part is these jeans are wearable now with boots and a sweater or a scarf, and very wearable as the weather warms up with ballet flats, sandals or heels. Now I need to find some pretty blouses and fun polo shirts I can wear with my new pants!
Also, my husband and I popped into The Gap to find the store ready for Spring. The Gap went through a few terrible years, but let me be the first to tell you, they're back in a major way! They introduced Gap Pure, which is the softest, coziest looking items I've seen in a while. The remind me of the line CK had in the 90s with the soft tees, sleepwear and robes. Also, Gap Fit has a some great workout/yoga items at really great prices. The feel of the pants and the fit remind me of Lulu, only you won't be dropping a third of your rent on two pairs of yoga pants. The quality is there.
Also, the Spring line is darling! Preppy, nautical, and all the staples you'd expect from the Gap! I wasn't compensated for this little update (though I wish I were, because I could have spent $1000.00 or more in under ten minutes....), I just want to share the love! :)
Can you tell I'm really really ready for Spring????
