Print Explosion

Mixing prints has been going strong in the blogsphere for quite some time. I've always wanted to try the trend but never felt comfortable doing so. Fast forward to the now hot printed pants trend and I was captivated. H & M came out with these floral print trousers which I went on the hunt for and never located. Everyone who was someone on my blog radar owned the pants but I wasn't fortunate enough to get my hands on a pair. 

Instead of being defeated I decided to do what frugal fashionistas do. I headed to my local Goodwill and found these printed pants for a couple of bucks. I received a ton of compliments at work. Truth is I wasn't sure about the look until midday. Students all over the campus were coming up to me saying they liked my outfit. My co-workers pumped me up by telling me only I could pull the look off at work and not look clownish. 

At the end of the day I was happy with my creation. One of my favorite bloggers tweeted me recently and reminded me that all the fun is in remixing my wardrobe (thanks @FashionNextDoor). She's right because my closet has zero room for anything more. I would like to purchase some new maxi dresses but only if I can sell the ones I have now. And I NEED a few pairs of sandals. LOLOL!

I know y'all laughing at me right now and rolling your eyes while calling me a shop-a-holic under your breath. Right? In that case, pray that I finish grad school so I can become all that I can be and make a decent salary to support my shopping habit or I can marry rich. I am so not kidding!!!!!! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I see Blogger has gotten it together and revised the commenting section so I can reply to each individual post. I will certainly respond to your comment so don't hesitate to leave me a pleasantry. 

Giveaway coming soon :)

I love how you used the shoes for a pop of color and the printed pants are unique. Much better than having the H&M one that everyone else has.
