Thanksgiving is almost here which means that my next favorite flavor of Starbucks coffee is finally available. Pumpkin Spice is definitely number one, but Peppermint Mocha takes a close second. It really just depends on what kind of day I am having. Believe me, we don’t splurge on Starbucks every day, but it is a nice little treat every once in a while.
With that said, I have a cute little go to outfit that was inspired by my love for Peppermint Mocha and color in general. I think I’ll start using food and things that make me happy for fashion inspiration more often! This one worked out pretty well!
My husband took this on a particularly gloomy day made brighter by these, my new favorite pants and my Peppermint Mocha. I am loving the Aged Wine color in these Lee Platinum Label Pull On Erika Straight Leg pants. Yes, they are pull on pants meaning there are no zippers or buttons to worry with. The only problem I have are my hips. They go over them, but it is like a crazy dance getting them up to my waist (the woes of big hipped girls I suppose). But, I LOVE the velvety smooth feel of the fabric (no they are not velvet… but just that smooth and soft). My husband even likes these which is saying a lot for pants (he prefers dresses and skirts… another story). I paired these with a favorite blouse I found at the LOFT a few weekends ago, my trusty black cardigan and my favorite black Nine West Wedges. Simple. Cute. Peppermint Mocha. $38.99.
I also love the Sangria color in these Gold Label Madison Skinny Pants! I have to say, I just can’t rock the skinny jean look for some reason. It still needs to grow on me (and my thighs). But, I love the look and feel of these pants for sure. $42.99.
So, where do you get your fashion inspiration?
