Our trip to Portland meant a trip to J. Crew where I was trying to find a turquoise pencil skirt that I had seen online. Unfortunately, when I got there they didn't have said skirt. I was about to admit defeat and leave when I came across the most amazing wide leg, red pants. I was a bit nervous at first. Could I really pull off red pants? Yes. The answer was most certainly yes. There's something about them that puts a little pep in your step. They're so fun and surprsingly versatile. Here's a bit of inspiration in case you're in doubt.
