Garden Party (See Jane Wear)

H&M anorak, J Crew blouse + shoes, Zara jeans (similar)
I think I owned these pants in legging form when I was in elementary school (with a coordinating hoodie, I'm sure).  When I got back into colored denim (which again, were a staple in my 1st grade closet), I knew it was only a matter of time before I bought some fun, floral jeans.  When Eric saw me wearing these pants he said, with a laugh, "Wow, what are those?"  You know you're wearing something good when a man shakes his head.

Love them! You look gorgeous. I have the H&M floral pants and my mum's response was 'didn't you have those when you were little' and my boyfriend's was 'curtain trousers!'. It was all the sign I needed for them to become my new favourite pair!

The floral jeans and top are looking really pretty. You can complete the look with a coral hoop earring and a nice ponytail:)
