I have been loving these camo pants so much since buying them recently!- just call me Army Girl! I can’t get over it because it is sooo not my style. They happen to be comfortable, and I love the green tones- so much more unique than regular jeans. I’ve been playing it safe while I try out this new trend by pairing neutral tones with my camo pants- last time was black, and now a neutral beige. I’ll most likely throw white on soon, and grey haha. Eventually, I’ll get to the colors (get ready for some pink!) but for now, my pop of color is in my favorite cross body purse. Poppy red! I thought it was a good touch to this look- no?

Part of this blog is to really push myself to try new pieces, while making sure I feel confident in them still. These pants originally worked for me mainly because of the fit. I wear skinnies a lot- I like them on my legs as they seem to slim down and elongate my frame, and this particular pair happened to really accentuate my booty- in a good way :) Because I was comfortable with the fit, I knew it would be ok to stretch my comfort in the pattern/color. Plus, I’ve warmed-up to camo as it has been on trend for quite sometime now. But if I have one suggestion for you in stretching your limit, I’d say that the key is to try to keep one aspect of the new style familiar, to help you adjust. :) And then enjoy yourself while you test out your personal style!

Welp, that’s the lesson of the day, whether you wanted it or not haha! Thanks for reading :)

He tenido muchas ganas de llevar estos pantalones de camo desde que los compré y no lo entiendo ni un poco porque no son de mi estilo. Pues con cómodos y me gustan los colores- son más únicos que los jeans que utilizo cada día. Los he combinado con camisas neutrales- negro, blanco y beige- pero pronto los llevaré con algo brillante- como rosado. Hasta ese momento, los combino con un toque de color- mi bolsa roja. Es un buen toque de color para añadir más viva al look, ¿no?

Parte de mi blog está enfocada en hacer esfuerzos a definir mi estilo personal, que realizaré después de probar varios estilos. Estos pantalones no son algo que normalmente elegiría, pero me gustan mucho. El corte es perfecto para mi- me gusta los skinny jeans porque elongan mis piernas y me quedan bien. Ya que el corte fue uno que sé que me lleva bien, podía jugar un poco con otro aspecto importante de la ropa: el color/el estampado. Hemos visto camo hace muchos meses y sé que es una moda popular. Mira, no es que siempre necesitamos llevar cada moda, pero en este caso, tenía ganas de probar la del camo. Encontré que me gustaron los pantalones mucho y ahora veo que hay otra parte de mi estilo personal de que nunca sabía. Les sugiero que prueben alguna moda nueva- la clave es de conservar al menos un aspecto familiar a tus gustos para ayudarte a adaptar. 

Pues, ahora les he enseñado algo nuevo jaja. ¡Feliz miércoles y gracias por leer!
