Red-Orange Skinny Jeans
Posted January 4, 2013on:
Since I finally decided to go ahead and purchase skinnys as I feel closer to my goal weight… I have added this new color!
I have to say a year ago if someone had suggested I buy this color, I probably would have laughed. There is something about losing weight that has given me a brand new confidence to burst out of my comfort zone…
How lucky am I to have a friend who gave me this fabulous Dooney & Bourke in this same red-orange color! It is really easy to pull an outfit together with such a unique color when you have a shirt with a print to pull another color and add a jacket. I love printed tops,but have had to get rid of quite a few with my weight loss. I think this is just the thing to search for in my next thrifting venture… I have to add that this grey jacket has been revived from being given away after I washed it in hot water and dried it. It shrank so that it barely buttons on me now!
Side view is to show the fun zippers that go from the waist all the way down these fun pants. These skinny’s are by Diane Gilman. They are identical to the Espresso ones shown here, but one size smaller since I am still losing weight… I love this designer and these pants, but I do have to be honest with you that the zippers are not lined on the inside and feel cold against my legs so have to wear them with tights… I don’t know if I will be able to wear them alone in spring and if not , that is a real problem.

A new realization and my Gratitude for today:
My husband came home last night and saw these pants on me for the first time and couldn’t stop saying how much he liked them. I feel so blessed to have a supportive husband who notices everything about my weight loss journey and my new style developing… It is so great that all the things that I embrace outside my comfort zone are the things he raves about, even not having any knowledge that it is a stretch for me. I guess I am surprised at how in sync with me he seems to be.
I will have to come up with some other ways to style these red-orange pants in the next few months. I know adding neutrals, like black, creme, white, tan and brown would easily work , but will strive to find something more inspiring as well. Any suggestions My Dear Readers?
