Life is Better in Gold Pants

Friends, I did it. I wore the gold pants. Which gold pants, you ask? The pants I mentioned last week while talking about what I'd be trying on at H&M. I spotted them once I already had five items in my arm upon entering four minutes prior. I admit, I felt slightly ridiculous snatching them up. I mean, they are gold pants.

Not mustard. Not a brownish-bronze. GOLD. With the gold flecks and all.

I mainly decided to try them on for fun. I figured I wouldn't like them anyway, but it'd be funny and for sure make for a good picture. Well, I was slightly surprised after putting them on that a) they fit wonderfully and b) I loved them. Loved.

Just call me Ke$ha because that's who I felt like.

So, then I had to think long and hard about purchasing these gold pants. If I was, in fact, a rockstar, they obviously would find some real estate in my closet. But I am not a rock star, yet. 

The gold pants made their way back on the racks of H&M, but I'm not sure that's where they'll stay. You see, I haven't really been able to stop thinking about them. 

Now, let's talk about something that doesn't really work for me: The long-tailed blouses. You know, the blouses with the back section of fabric extending longer than they do in the front? Do these have an official name? Well, those blouses do not work for petite Chelsea. I look like I'm a 5-year-old dressing in my dad's clothes. Not a good look. Do we agree?

I loved the mint with the gold pants, though. Did I mention that I loved the gold pants?

I ended up leaving H&M with one item. A pastel neon orange and off-white striped shirt - I needed something on the more casual side. I also found some goodies at a couple other stores. I'll share those soon :)

And those are some pictures from the weekend spent in the pretty Virginia countryside :) It was my first time wearing my Cheerfully Charmed necklace and it already broke in several spots :( Not cool. Good thing I got it on sale and didn't pay the original $60 price tag!

P.S. Don't forget to check back tomorrow for the announcement of my and Hollie's mail swap and to sign up! :)

Your weekend looks amazing! And those pants?! I'm DYING. I want them! I do love the mint with the gold (but I feel the same way about long tailed blouses on myself too). I see the Ke$ha point, but there's got to be a way to make those work! I need to scour H&M now!!

Girl, life is too short. I say, get the gold pants. And wear them proudly! I got gold leggings and wore them to a Justice concert when I was in Paris, and I felt like SUCH a rockstar! Gold pants ftw.
