Try-it-out Tuesday: turquoise pants & double cardis

    I was thrilled to find these pants at Ross the other week. They fit great, are amazingly soft to the touch, and are a perfect length -- just a bit of excess at the end that can be scrunched or folded.  

   Velvet Heart jeggings, Ross, $22.99 
gray Banana Republic cardigan, previously loved by Mom
Joseph A. cardigan, Macy's
 Fossil "Mystic" necklace, Macy's

     Ever since then, I've been determinedly pinning outfit ideas on Pinterest. I'm excited about pairing these pants with neutrals (black, gray, white),  patterns (stripes, florals) and punchy colors (red, blues of every shade, purples).
   It's gray, overcast and chilly here, so I decided to double up on the cardigans for some layering fun. 

   I'm pleased that I've finally become a member of the Bright Pants Club! I feel really comfortable with this color, so I think these pants are going to be well-used.
   Happy Tuesday!
