Patterned Pants-Weekend Edition

{Pants: Limited Super Cute} {Sweater: Limited Similar} {Wedges: NY&Co. Steal}
{Sunnies: F21 not online but still in store!} {Necklaces: old LOVE} {Bracelets: Groopdealz}

Patterned Pants have been all the rage this year. I seriously wear a different pair to work just about everyday (yes, I am fully aware I am in need of an intervention). But, because I wear them to work I usually avoid them on the weekend, they can tend to feel a little too stuffy and dressy! So with my look today I am showing you a patterned pants in a denim material. You still get all the fun of the cool print, but with a much more dressed down, comfy feeling. I paired it with a very light weight sweater and some simple necklaces to make for a go-to weekend look! PS. these are from last season, but LOFT has an ah-mazing pair (linked above) with a chevron print that I am dying over!

OK you guys, I was seriously trying to be more creative with my background in the pictures and I used my air conditioner--is that weird?! Ha! I kinda don't hate it--but def. want to get out more around town for some new, fun backgrounds. I promise you there is more to see in Ohio than just my backyard. 

Do you guys have any tips for how to scout out locations for photos? 
Do you guys use your tri-pod or try to take a friend/boyfriend/hubs?
I need some suggestions :)

Have a great Hump Day (Half-Way to the Weekend--not that I am counting ha!)


  1. This is so adorable! I've been looking for a pair of patterned pants that will work with things I already have, but just haven't found them yet. I LOVE the way you styled yours! My husband takes my photos all over our yard. We unfortunately don't have the time to go anywhere else. Luckily our yard is big and you can't see other houses from it so there are a few different spots that work!

  2. Love the yellow! So bright and cheery! : )


  3. Ok so first off, I love the patterned pants!! Especially mixed with the yellow!! And the sunnies are ah-mazing!! Second---as I was looking at the pics I was thinking "Yes! I'm not the only one who walks aimlessly around her house looking for new photo locations!!" The air conditioner--brilliant! And my hubby takes 99% of my pics for him (he really is the best)....I bet if we all put out heads together we can think of some new crazy location ideas--that will be my weekend task!


  4. Hahaha! I totally understand the background issues.. or trying to think of different poses...I am accused of that sometimes --but I'm no model and don't know how to be! lol. It's difficult to find time with my boyfriend and I's schedules as is to take pictures so it would probably work out a lot better if I told him all we had to do was go outside [but I always tell him we have to drive somewhere] ;)

    Love the sweater! Great colors.

  5. Really nice Color Combi

    FOLLOW MY BLOG / Maybe we can follow each other!!!

  6. Stop! Obsessed with those pants!! Loving all the colors!! I'm kinda digging the AC I'm not going to lie! My husband takes my pics and honestly I drive around looking for an area that looks cute with the outfit? No secret really! At least you have a really nice yard! :)

  7. Those pants are awesome!! Normally, I would never look twice at a pair like that hanging on a rack, but now that I've seen this post & because you look so cute in them, I'm definitely thinking twice about it! :)

  8. Oh I love that color of that sweater

  9. I am loving printed pants right now, and I am not even a big fan of pants! And I love them with the bright sweater. So finding locations is REALLY hard for me. I try to be creative but it is difficult, especially because I have to beg my husband to come too so he normally doesn't want to go too far. Sometimes we have to do it in our backyard because he doesn't have time, and I hate that. But finding cool locations is a constant struggle!


  10. Oooh I love patterned pants, but I only have one pair. It feels like a tragedy! I love the pattern on those - so cute and original!

    I take my outfit pics in the same spot every time, but I wish I had the time to get out and about. I'm sure my posts would be a lot more interesting hah!

  11. Love!! I got patterned leggings for Christmas and I wore them literally all Winter. I rarely do outfit posts, but when I do I just go out in the yard and have a friend snap a few pictures -- haha!

  12. You look great! My behind isn't cute enough for certain types of prints...but my camo ones would look cute with this color combo! I might have to scout out some new pieces! I have no creativity what so every involved in outfit pics because they are a rushed process right after work and I make one of my kids snap it. I have a tripod but don't take time to mess with it. Maybe someday I will branch out!

  15. Love the fun print on those pants! I don't own a single pair of printed pants...I need to get some!

    I've been taking my photos in the same boring spot but that's mostly because I'm usually crunched for time.

  16. Those pants are so fun! I love the colors and the pattern! Haha I totally feel you with the pictures. I always am looking for new places to take them but usually end up going back to the same spots as always! It's just easier and you know it works! :) FYI You are looking seriously tan in these pics, I'm jealous!

  19. your so pretty! i love those pants

  20. I struggle with locations also! It can be really hard when you have to take your own photos! I love this outfit, the yellow top compliments the pants perfectly.

  22. I take my pics using a tripod, and I usually scout out surrounding locations to keep a mental map of great backgrounds. If you're interested, I wrote a blog post guide ( that might help!


  23. I love these pants- they are SO unique! You look fabulous and I love how you brought out the yellow with your top. Your outfits are always so "put together". :)

  24. This is a super cute outfit and the colors are great together. I would wear it everywhere!

    I started out taking my photos with a tripod and then recruited the hubs to take them. I still use the tripod when I'm in a pinch, but sometimes my photos come out a little blurry. As for locations, I struggle with that too. Mostly, I use the sidewalk across from my house. I don't think there's anything wrong with using your back yard :-)
