Lemon Twist

I'm back at it again with the lemons! Yes, more lemons! In my previous post called A Lust for Lemons, I vowed to curb my addiction to lemon print items, or at least I admitted that I had way too many things with lemons on them. After seeing countless people on Instagram with this lemon print shell, however, I just knew I had to get it! I also bought the matching cardigan, but considering the temperature is currently around 100 degrees here, it's way too hot for a cardigan, even one with summery lemons.

The reason I'm calling this post "Lemon Twist" is because I'm changing up my style a little bit with these fun wide-legged striped pants. I tried them on last month at J. Crew and I was on the fence about whether or not I could pull them off, because they are obviously different from the normal silhouettes that I wear. After trying them on and settling on the idea that maybe they weren't for me, I left them on the rack. After thinking about it longer, however, I decided to give them a try and ordered them off the website. I am definitely glad that I did because they are so comfy and make me feel like I have chic pajamas on all day! It should be noted that my husband said that I looked like a fashionable sailor or pirate in them! Perhaps I should have titled this post "Lemon Pirate" instead?

  1. HI! I absolutely love your style! I swear I have a lot of the same outfits you do!! Great minds think alike :):) So glad you found my blog, so now I am following you! PS: you totally pull off the wide leg pant, girl!

  2. Yes to lemons! And LOL to lemon pirates! My husband probably would have had the same comment, good thing they don't have a fashion blog!

  3. Too cute! Love that top paired with those pants!

  4. This shell top is too cute! It looks great with your wide legged striped pants. I am glad you decided to give them a try because they look great on you. Oh, and the double stripe is a nice touch. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!
