Another Wednesday and another Fatshion Faceoff!  In case you're new to the blog, here's what the Fatshion Faceoff is all about: we're a group of six girls and every week, one of the girls in our group picks a specific item of clothing and we all style it in our own way.  Then on Wednesdays, we all post our outfits at the same time, and BOOM.  Fatshion Faceoff.  Super fun, right?

Anyway, the awesomeness that is Molly of Molly-Pocket had her chance to pick this week's challenge item, and she chose.... colored pants (or more specifically, colored skinnies if we had them)! 


top (no longer avail, but a similar leopard version) - Macys 
tank (similar) - Walmart / skinny jeans (similar, similar)  - Gap 
flats (similar) - Target / clutch (similar) - ASOS
sunnies - Ray Ban / earrings, ring - Forever21

So, for this week's Fatshion Faceoff, I grabbed my trusty cobalt skinny jeans/jeggings and popped those bad boys on.  I have other colored pants, but wanted to stick with these skinnies because, well, they're my favorites and SO COMFY. 

Anyway, if you've been following my blog for a while, you can probably tell that I really like pairing my bright blue jeans with leopard (see here and here).  Today, I went with leopard flats because they make every outfit more fun AND I thought they happened to go well with the sheer shirt I found on the Macy's clearance rack.  It has sparkles on the back, y'all!  :D  I added a pop of color with one of my favorite clutches (that also doubles as my jewelry holder when I travel).  Somehow I managed to keep the jewelry minimal today, as I didn't want to add much more to my smorgasbord of an outfit. 

Do you have colored pants?  What's your favorite way to wear them?

PS: That's my boyfriend's shadow in the pics.  (I'm wearing this outfit today, but actually took these pics yesterday).  Anyway, he was home and I like to plan ahead for FF, so I conned him into taking pics for me.  SO much easier/faster than the whole tripod setup.  :)
