man oh man, am i excited for today! us gals over at rue magazine are now working with Gap on Styld.byβ€”their fun new online catalog! go take a look over here to see all the other awesome bloggers involved! to kick it off, i picked out these punchy pants…

I definitely feel most comfortable in color. And though I usually go for bright dresses, these magenta pants put a fun spin on my personal style.

A sheer button-down and a cropped blazer complement the pants’ tomboy silhouette, while an over-the-top pair of platforms and a head full of flowers keep me right in my girly zone. The best of both worlds, really.

go see how the other rue ladies styled their sassy Gap items right here!

    Mommy Dearest says:

    Can I just jump in here and say how proud as a peacock I am that this little cutie is MY BABY GIRL??!!! I remember once when your 1st grade teacher told me years later that you and your sister Lacey were her most well-dressed students! haha The trend continues. For those that asked, that polka dot bag is a Marc Jacobs purse I gave Miss Breezy for Christmas! I’m uber stoked it made it into the shoot! These photos just make me want to say “WHEEEEEEEEE” with a pinwheel in my hand! : ) I think you just sold some pants for Gap, my child! XOXOXO, Mummy

    Your makeup looks so good! The lipstick, the blush, those are your colors. And your moms comment is the cutest thing in the world and she uses the word uber! Cute people.

    Jessica says:

    Love the styling you did for the pants, the pop of orange was delightful! It is so cool to know that the Gap is pairing themselves with bloggers now because they are a vital part to the fashion industry as of late. I love looking at blogs and I know many other people do.
