Pinterest Told Me To Buy Pink Pants

I pinned this photo of Julie Bowen back at the beginning of the summer when I purchased my Gap blazer for a steal of a deal. I just loved how she styled her navy jacket with hot pink and gold, & I knew instantly that I wanted to do something similar...

The first step in copying this outfit was to find the perfect pair of pink pants. They couldn't be too light. I didn't want them to be highlighter pink either. They had to be the perfect balance of cotton candy with bubblegum. I also wanted them to be skinny jeans so that I could pair them with boots, heels, or flats. After months of searching, I finally found the perfect pair in Piperlime's clearance section. They were marked down to $30 & with my Gap Rewards, I got them for $10! #score 

skinnies - Cheap Monday via Piperlime // boots - MIA
blazer - Gap // tee - Gap // watch - Coach 

Since my blazer has pinstripes, I opted for a plain white v-neck underneath. I'm just not sure about mixing horizontal & vertical stripes. I also switched out my gold glitter loafers for my gray boots because it was pouring down rain & I didn't want to loose my sparkles in a puddle! 

I really loved how the gold jewelry popped in the outfit too. I'm thinking that pink & gold may be my new favorite combination!
