Meant to Be

Once upon a time (about 2 years ago), I decided that I should buy some green skinny jeans.  It seemed like an easy enough task, but I could not find any that were the right color of green, that fit properly, and that were in my price range (like less than $20). 

Then on Black Friday (2013), I was shopping at Old Navy and saw these Sweetheart jeans in the perfect green color.  For some reason, I convinced myself that I shouldn't buy them, and instead bought 2 pairs of shoes, 3 pairs of tights, a skirt, and a cardigan (all of which I really like).  But I left the jeans.  Why did I leave the jeans??

Anyway, I kept thinking about the jeans, but didn't have a chance to go back and figured they would be gone.  After Christmas, I had to return some duplicate items to Old Navy, so I hoped I would find the jeans still there.  Victory!  There was a big stack on the sale table.  $10!  But they had every size except mine.  I tried on a size up and a size down (because Old Navy sizes are never exact), but neither were quite right.  I asked the worker to run a search and the other store near me had my size!  So, I put them on hold and drive across town to get these jeans.  And then I was doing the 30X30, so I couldn't wear them.

So there's the very exciting story of how I finally got my green jeans.  And of course, they were the first thing I wanted to wear after the 30X30 was over!  I decided to borrow one of my favorite green skirt outfits, which was inspired by this pin.

Speaking of exciting things, I'm super pumped for next week, because I'm joining forces with 5 of my favorite ladies to host a week long red and pink Valentine's Day extravaganza.  That may be overstating a bit, but we will be wearing red and/or pink every day next week, and there will be a link up, so you can join in!  See, it's so exciting!        

Today I'm linking up with Heather for Pinned it & Did It AND with Jenn and Ginny for their new Style Swap (even though I can't find the original post for my pin).
