Posted on: December 28, 2012

I am so excited about my new pants, that I couldn’t wait until morning to post this,but is around midnight so it qualifies as tomorrow, Right?

I was so happy to receive these Diane Gilman Tribal Print Jeans  yesterday and couldn’t wait to style them and wore them all day.  I was beyond thrilled when UPS came so early, as that doesn’t happen! It was windy and my hair doesn’t look good at all today….

I paired these with one of my favorite jackets.  It is a microsuede swing jacket with an obi belt.  I purchased this jacket as one of my first items from the tv shopping channels. It is by Wayne Lucas Scot previous stylist on What Not to Wear.   I have worn this so much over the past two years and am so happy to report that this is going to be one of the very few items that will survive my total weight loss of about 50lbs once I get to my goal.  I also have this in brown.   I so wish this was still available to direct you to purchase because it is one of the most favorite things I have ever owned….

I took this side pose so you could see how cute this jacket really is!

I have to say that I am so loving my black booties.  The heel is just the right height and does wonders to increase my leg line, which is important for us petite women. They are clearance right now at Payless for just $15.    Last year I wore mules a lot,but have found that my new love of booties has made my mules obsolete.

I was thinking of what other ways I could style these pants and my first thought was to add a yellow top.  If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to hearing and trying them because I want these to be something I wear often… I found it very funny that when I showed my husband these pants online, he got that funny face as if to say , “really?”   He was still sleeping when I put this outfit together(remember he is on vacation) and when he saw my outfit he complimented it.  I reminded him of his initial reaction to the pants and he said, “well, I like them now!”   I told him I like them in green too and he repeated that he liked them.  I am not going to get the green, but am tempted…

Gratitude:  I am grateful that my husband got some much needed sleep.  I am grateful that everyone pitched in and helped me straighten up the house today.  I am grateful that we all just hung around the house today.  I am so glad my husband changed his mind about these pants!!!

No wonder you were excited about the pants, they are fabulous! The jacket is the perfect addition to them. I always love blue/cobalt paired with yellow, red, and green. Can’t wait to see how you style them again in the future!

I love those pants! They look great on you! Love the detail on the jacket! Would have missed it if you hadn’t taken a side shot! A yellow top would look incredible with your pants!

Awww, I can feel your enthusiasm for these amazing pants. Both ways you’ve styled them is really cute…but you look super sassy rockin’ your shades and hat with them.

Thank you and yes, my enthusiasm is off the charts! I’ve lost 38lbs so far and am starting to feel like my old self again..
