Mrs. Green Pants

I'm always on the look out for fun murals. Many murals I find by using the help of others bloggers and Instagramers in the Los Angeles area, whereas some murals I just discover on my own. This fun car mural located in North Hollywood was one of the latter, as I haven't really seen it used before, but hopefully it gets some more love because it's pretty cool. This reminds me that, eventually, I want to create a comprehensive wall guide to the Los Angeles area. It will be coming soon. I promise!

Like this wall, my green pants were also a recent discovery or, shall I say, purchase. I bought them a couple weeks ago at Target and there's sort of a funny story behind them. I was shopping at Target with my husband and while checking out, I left him to go look at something else. (Truth be told, I was looking at clothing for me in the children's department!) Anyway, when I came back the checker exclaimed, "Oh, so these are your green pants, then!" Apparently, he thought they were my husband's and, as I found out later, the checker asked him about them to which my husband, thinking that the checker was being sarcastic, explained sarcastically that they were indeed his pants and that he had been looking for such a pair for months!

I found it immensely funny that the checker would assume that my husband could fit into a size 4 woman's pants and that he would wear bright green pants! At this point, my husband and I both surmised that the checker might have been smoking something green, if you catch my drift, because he started rambling about how probably only a rich man could pull off wearing the green pants because he could do anything he wanted and no one would say anything. Needless to say, it was very strange checkout experience! If you don't find this story amusing, I'll defend myself by stating that I suppose you just had to be there to get the humor. Regardless, this experience made for a colorful story behind this vibrant article of clothing.

  2. I love those colors together with the leopard print purse. Stunning images with the mural!
    Thanks for joining the Fabulous Friday link-up!

  3. Haha ... what an odd checker! And hey, I'm wearing those exact green pants in my "ArtOfFun" post! (To be honest I borrowed them from a friend. They look way better on you than me!)

    Thanks so much for linking up and have a great weekend!

  4. Love that shade of green on your pants - they are beautiful and work so nicely against the mural! You really should do a guide, although I'm on the other side of the world you find some gorgeous artwork to pose against so it would be nice to see a roundup of it all! :)

    Hope you had a great weekend :)

  5. Well that was amusing. The Target by me knows me too well but it is usually nice ladies I checkout with and I am glad you also shop at kids' department as I do. I own a version of green crops and a very similar blue striped blouse. Funny thing I wore my blouse like yours with my red crops so great minds think alike!


Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
