These patterned cropped pants that I recently picked up at the New York & Company Outlet are quickly becoming my favorite pants for Spring. I wore the same pair in a coral paisley pattern on Mother’s Day and they proved to be comfortable for all day wear in a day in the life of a stay at home mom. That itself makes them great, but the adorable patterns and solid colors that are available makes them even better. Unfortunately, try as I might, I simply cannot find a way to view or shop New York & Company Outlet stores online. From my experience, the outlet inventory is very different from the items offered in the regular store. If you get the opportunity to visit an outlet near you, they d0 have some beautiful items at super discounted prices. I left there with a big bag of goodies for a reasonable amount of money!
When I bought the green pants, I envisioned pairing them with a royal blue cardigan, so I purchased a super soft cropped one while I was in the New York & Company outlet. However, when I put them together, I didn’t like the cut of the cardigan with the pants. (I did not try them together in the store.) But I did have a longer cardigan in the same blue which I had purchased last spring at Target. Then when my friends at COTD Style challenged us all to pair nautical blue with any kind of geometric shape, I ran for my new green pants and blue sweater! I love being inspired to put something together, but I also love when something I already have in mind meets a challenge!
