a song about my skinnies

Sweater: Target  Tank: Target  Pants: Target  Shoes: Forever Young Shoes

Caution: I'm breaking out into song mode.... I bought GREEN pants and I can not lie, a truth that my husband wants to deny!  Ha ha, seriously though! I am so happy that I finally got a pair of colored skinnies! Unfortunately Eric is having a hard time getting used to it. Each time he refers to me, he HAS to mention the pants. For example, he called me the other day and asked, "Where are you in your green pants?" Or, "Green means go, your pants would know." Ha ha, he's a charmer ;)
So I met up with Gentri to do some window shopping at Target... which ended with a bag full of clothes and Easter m&m's. Definitely a good combination, m&m's + the tightest pants on earth. Awesome. Anyway... Gentri whizzed through the store and picked out this amazing outfit in 2 seconds flat. I never would've put this together, ever! But I am so glad that she convinced me to get out of my comfort zone! I've decided that she needs to loan me her magical shopping powers, or become my personal shopper :) Next on the list? PINK skinnies. Who's surprised?

P.S. I told Gentri the other day... I've never been more motivated to do lunges than when I wear these pants :) Ha.
P.P.S. Is it just me or do colored skinnies run smaller? My pants are 2-4 sizes larger than I normally wear... so don't be afraid to try on a bigger size!

i love that outfit. i wish i had girls to go shopping with, not the same as the husband, he always says everything looks good. useless, but sweet. anyways i just got some colored pants, slightly nervous to wear them. but i know what you mean. i feel when i put on colored pants i look at my legs and think how everyone can see my untoned thighs. but you look great. so don't worry about it.

Oh girl, this outfit is SUPER cute! Your friend did an awesome job picking that out and you are SO brave for wearing it. It looks so good on you though, so don't let anyone tell you any different lol! Can't wait to see the pink skinnies outfit!

Kristen said...

That is adorable! I have always been afraid of colored pants, though I just got some red ones not too long ago. Now I just need the courage to, you know, wear them.

Carlie said...

You look fantastic in that outfit! She did a great job picking it out!

Cindy P said...

It's such a cute outfit! I especially love the tank and sweater combo. I may go have to buy it at Target myself! And I love the colored denim. I just don't think I can pull of skinnies. My butt's too big. =(

Nicole said...

green skinnies are AMAZE! Don't let anyone tell you different! :)

Sarah said...

Cutest outfit EVER! I have some greenish blue skinnies kinda like that and my first venture in colored skinnies were HOT PINK. Your husband sounds like my boyfriend. When I wear my pink skinnies he says things like No one could miss you in those and its a good thing you like attention in those pants. They ARE bright but I love them. Enjoy your colored skinnies!

THE COOK'S said...

She did an awesome job picking that outfit, and girl, you ROCK it!
And your town may be little, but check out that gorgeous view!
Also... I ordered some coral skinnies, but didn't realize they were backordered till MAY!! Holy balls. That is a long time to wait for a pair of pants, but I'm still super excited about it! lol

Meghan @ More from Meg said...

Love your outfit! I almost bought that tank at Target the other day and seeing how adorable it looks on you - I might have to go back and get it! :)

Lauren said...

Those look super cute on you! :-)

erica[goodjobmomma] said...

color skinnies are my goal when i reach my goal weight! i really love the color! so fun!

i'm taking my sister with me shopping today because she is a master shopper too! she can pick out something and think really? but oh goodness it works and is amazing! haha.

eryka {from abcde} said...

I have two pairs of colored skinnies coming and I cannot wait! My mom actually bought me the ones you are wearing. I am pretty sure its the same color. I cannot wait to see them! :)

Pssstt....jealous that you an hang out with gentri!!!

Laura Burtis said...

Love, love, LOVE that outfit! It all works perfectly! And I totally tried on those skinnies in my normal size and they were SO tight! HA! I was not having it ;) But I'm so ready to run to Target RIGHT now to buy that blouse! Absolutely adorable!!

Jennifer said...

I low this outfit! I have a pair of similarly colored skinnies ... They're kinda teal.... But you're RIGHT.... They do run smaller and they definitely don't fit me right now :( But I wish they did now because I am loving your outfit! ...I guess I'll have to do some lunges ha.... Or maybe just buy a bigger pair :)

Keri said...

Oh my gosh. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit!!!! I wish I could wear skinnies like that! I have to have something long enough to hide all the cottage cheese on my thighs. :) You look absolutely gorgeous. Seriously, if I could pull it off, I'd be loading the kids in the van and heading to Target right NOW to buy that exact same outfit.

Kylie said...

That is seriously so cute. I need Gentri to come help me shop! I'm too scared of color and pattern, haha.

Karm said...

haha so cool. You can be a rap star!!
I love Target, they have the cutest spring line. I wanted a flow-y skirt and flats, and ended up walking out with a grey skirt, black cowl neck top and glittery fancy flip flops.... (:
You outfit is amazing though, I like how it pops!

Catherine said...

cute blog!! darling outfit!! i bought green skinnies in december and i have been so afraid to wear them until now. i got some really cute coral cropped pants from F21. i was so apprehensive about the colored pants thing, but it's growing on me :)

Jessica said...

I LOVE the turquoise and coral together, such a pretty color combo :)You look great!

Torie said...

I think they size skinny jeans to make us feel bad. Except I'm trying to not get all sizeist and feel bad when I have to try on bigger sizes anymore. Not the easiest of tasks, huh? Those jeans are adorable! I love them on you! And I'm sorry, but "Green means go, your pants would know" ? THAT IS PRICELESS.

thecoffeehouse said...

love the skinnies! and i really want to hear the rest of that song. really.

Emma Frances said...

LOVE the outfit! I want Gentri to take me shopping! Haha. And I can't wait to see your pink skinnies! Also, my red skinnies are in a larger size than I normally buy...I think they do run small!

m+b said...

LOVE the color combo on you!! SO cute!

lori said...

WHY in the world do they make skinny pants so freaking small? mine are a couple of sizes bigger, too.

love the colored skinnies ;)

April of A. Liz Adventures said...

Cute pants! I have green skinnies too -- and a pink cropped pair! I would have sworn to you a few years ago that I wouldn't be caught dead in colored denim. My, how times change :)

Michelle said...

I LOVE YOUR OUTFIT. Sorry, but that really did require caps lock. I've wanted colored skinnies forevs, and now I'm going to hunt for some after work. Yes, your cuteness is that inspiring :)

Jayme and Mendi said...

You are rocking the green skinnies!! They were made for you! Your hubby is too funny! Go get pink next!

And I totally agree that they run smaller than regular jeans. Odd!

Miss Amy said...

My BF would say the same thing if I wore green skinny jeans. but he would still LOVE them!! :) You look great! Love the color combination!

Andrea said...

You ROCK this outfit girl! Wow, you look amaaazing:)

Alycia (Crowley Party) said...

I think it is just Target. There skinny jeans run really tiny!

Katy said...

Love this outfit! I never would have thought to put all of that together, but it looks adorable. I especially like that I can find it all at Target; it's my favorite shopping place :o)

tifsong said...

i bought that exact pair from target about a month ago and i didn't like how they looked on me, but i like them on you! and they were definitely a few sizes bigger? wtf?

katilda said...

i own green skinnies toooo! but not from target. i did try on the target ones in pink 2 days ago..and boy howdy they ARE tight!

katilda said...

also, HELLO CEDAR CITY! dying about that red mountain! i definitely went to SUU. *nostalgia!*

Nicole @My Thrafty Life said...

They look great on you! I tried on skinnies once and they do NOT accentuate my "badonkadonk".

The Sweetest Thing said...

i am OBSESSED with your skinnies. rock them girlfriend you look good in them!

Gentri said...

WOOOOHOOOO! So glad the outfit is a hit! :D You look smokin'!!

Haili Hunter said...

Courtney,
Next time your in Saint George you, me and Gentri need to go shopping!! Yes? I'd looove that! I've been wanting to get blush pink, and pale yellow denim jeans. So I think that we all should buy some and take photographs! That'd be a partay!

Courtney said...

GIMME that outfit!! Your husband is funny!!

Cami said...

I can't remember if I commented already...ha-ha!!

Diane Writes said...

I love skinny jeans and I love the color blocking in your outfit. You look pretty!

Liesl said...

So pretty!!! Loving that color jade green and peachy coral together with that polka dot shirt tied in...so lovely! Love the song too...I think songs are always a good idea! :) Eric's comments made me laugh out loud...you both are too cute! <3

Robin said...

Love the pants!! I am SO happy you mentioned that they run small. I attempted to branch out and get some pink skinnies, but after going 3 sizes larger than normal I gathered up my dignity and ran out of the store! haha :) good to know It's not just me! Love your blog!!

Cate Christison said...

LOVE those skinnie jeans. I am starting to have a collection of colored denim and am hoping that it is worth the investment :)

XOXO

That Girl said...

I don't think I can get away with skinnies, but they're cute on you!

Bri Buzali said...

I love the outfit, and I just bought some skinnies too! in yellow :)

I think it's so true that we dress more for girls than we do for guys. Girls notice things like cute outfits when guys would be just as happy if we threw on a plain white t-shirt haahah

nate and amy crandell said...

SUPER cute!! Love Love Target!

natasha {schue love} said...

Love the pants...the green is a great color! Target really is the best!

Julie said...

I LOVE those green skinny jeans! I have them in red and I agree, they are very tight...I could barely pull them over my thighs in my normal size! You look great love, that outfit is adorable! :)

Megan said...

You seriously look adorable!! I love the colored skinnies!!

Jessica said...

I absolutely adore this outfit! You look so good! I love Target hehe. And yea, I feel like colored skinnies run smaller too. I don't know why. :)

xx Jessica

Listen sister, it takes me 45 minutes to scroll down to comment, you are just so blogger famous.

I tired on red skinnies the other day, and thought.. ugh, I look like a marker. I better buy them.

You look fab.

Those colors are to die for and they POP on that back ground! I love those pants on you!

Ashley Slater said...

haha this made me laugh, I have the red ones from target and I wore them home yesterday for the ride back to LA and we stopped an ate A & W's and my button was seriously threatening to POP! hahah

if we wore them together we could be like christmas!
It was soooooo great to meet you! I always LOVE when bloggers are just as cool in real life as they come across on their blogs, and you and gentri were just that! I only wish I would have had more flexibility and time so I could have hung out longer!

xo,
ash

C.Curley said...

You look awesome! I'm totally jealous that you can eat all the junk food that you do and still look like that!! :) Oh, and my husband HATES colored skinny jeans, too! But he hates anything that's fashionable. Seriously. HATES it! It's a challenge! haha!

Ashley said...

Yes, I definitely agree that skinny jeans run so much smaller.

That's the Target curse...you always come out with more than you expected!!

Love the pants on you!!

rachel said...

Corianne said...

Love love love the green pants! I need them in my life :)

Aspiring Kennedy said...

YES for colored skinny jeans. :) i may or may not have bought 3 pairs last week! i can't help it... after a FREEZING cold winter here in France, I feel a sense of entitlement to warm weather clothing. :)

Alexis Kaye said...

Kelly said...

Ok, I LOVE LOVE LOVE those pants!!!! I've been DYING for some colored skinny pants too but i'm scared....i had to laugh when you said you have never been more motivated to do lunges! That's what I keep thinking about them too! I think this mama of 4 needs to do some more before she tries to rock them!! Hehe!

Tiffany said...

Cute pants!!

Sarah @ Scissors and a Whisk said...

OMG you are too cute!

I'm so scared of skinny jeans. I'm scared of bright colors (most of my wardrobe is neutrals and a few colors here and there). So I'm like deathly afraid of colorANDskinny jeans. I'm afraid of skinnies because... I have thick thighs.

They look amazing on you!
