Hello! For this week's Fashion Over Fifty post I'm back wearing my red pants. I first wore them HERE back in February and I have not worn them since. It's not that I don't love them, I do, I'm mad for red; but they are hard to style. Back in February I wore them with a white shirt and tan cardigan, and at the end of my post I asked my readers for their opinions on how they would style red pants. A lot of people said that they like to combine navy and red together, so I decided to try that out. I was worried about appearing to patriotic with that color combo, but I think because I chose a more blue/grey chambray shirt, that fear never came to pass.
Almost everything I have on is from Old Navy, which is funny, because I really don't shop there that much. But my red Pixie ankle pants, chambray shirt, bracelet, and the striped blue and white tank top were all purchased there.
I'm not sure you will be seeing me in these red pants again. I accidentally threw the pants in the dryer. The instructions said to 'line dry', but really, who looks at washing instructions when they are throwing in a load of wash? Well they did shrink, and although they still fit, they just don't look the same. They fit more like leggings than pants, and I'm just so upset with myself for throwing them in the dryer. I did go on the Old Navy web site to warn future buyers not to put their pants in the dryer, and I was surprised to read that a lot of buyers actually put their pants in the dryer on purpose to reshape them because they said they stretch out after wearing them. So, I'm going to try just wearing my pants around the house one day and see if they stretch out again. Wish me luck! I really love my red pants.
Have a great day! Amy
