Golden Pants with Denim and Cranberry

I’ve seen gold skinny jeans around for a while, but only designer labels at full price. I have a hard time parting with my money for a trend. So when I saw these pants on sale for $11 in the Target clearance rack, I grabbed them and didn’t think about it twice.

I paired them with a cranberry top and brown faux-suede booties. The giraffe-print scarf is a favorite of mine and doesn’t get a lot of exposure, so I wore it too–especially since I had plenty of textures but no patterns in this outfit.

I wore a denim trench to dress down the disco nature of the pants and make them appropriate for daytime (and casual evening events). On this particular day, I went out with my mom and a few of my friends. The gold pants were a neat alternative to blue jeans, but are just as comfortable.

Here’s the shot I took. Seattle, with all the rain and clouds, is the perfect environment for moss. People hate it when moss grows on their roofs and lawns, but the color sure is pretty.
