ootd: golden

i’m wearing: banana republic sequin shoulder sweater (last year), seven for all mankind gold floral jeans, michael kors watch, various bracelets and nine west pumps.

if you follow the stylish housewife on facebook, then you may remember these jeans. my hubby actually surprised me with them after a particularly rough week. he RARELY buys me clothes so it was such a nice surprise! he was starting to think that i didn’t like them but really it just recently started to cool down here enough for me to wear them. but i do tend to do that quite often. i buy things and they sit in my closet for months before i get around to wearing them. does anyone do that or am i just weird? =)

    Umm, I do that all the time and then I feel bad for “having to have them”. Love this sweater – the color looks so pretty on you and those jeans are so fun…also the lighting in these pictures is gorgeous!

    Yup, do that all the time. It kinda makes them more special when you finally do get to wearing them…anticipation! Love the look. Love it that your hubby bought you the jeans. He’s obviously got good taste!:) Love the Arizona background. How do you like living there? We keep trying to get out of Chicago!

    Great post! Those jeans are super! Haha youre not the only one out there, happens to me all the time. Sometimes when i see a beautiful garment i just buy it, but then never get the perfect occasion to wear it or i dont now how to pair it. Thats why its important that you buy things that can last longer than just one season!

    Yes! I do that too…The worst part about it for me is when they end up fitting me differently months down the road then it’s too late to return! Bag girl.

    I do remember your hubby got those.. they look amazing, he did such a great job! I also have tons of clothes I still have yet to wear (is that bad? lol) my excuse is that I’m waiting for it to cool off, now that it’s cooling off I don’t know what to wear first and end up not wearing it at all! ay yay yay!

    I love this look! It is a refreshing Autumn look. Those skinnies are to die for! Love the print and the gold accents. The sequins on the top make you glow! Also great photos.

    Glad to hear I am not the only one that does that. I found a top the other day that I must’ve bought 1+ year ago that still had tags on it.

    How sweet of your hubby to buy clothes for you – these jeans are so fab with your sweater!

    Apparently I missed this post somehow? So happy I found it! These pants are to die for. Do they fit pretty true to size? The metallic is perfect for fall. How sweet of the hubby. I love men who know how to get to our heart-through clothes!
