That's kind of a weird way to describe me

Today's title is from the TV show "Parks and Recreation," but we'll get back to that in a minute.

Do you know what I thought when coloured jeans started becoming a thing? Nope. Not "nope" as in "No, you don't know," but rather "nope" as in "I am not ever going to wear those." Based on my last two posts (pink and lavender jeans) I'm guessing you can already tell that I've changed my mind about that. I'm afraid that I've now actually gone in the complete opposite direction and become obsessed. No. Yes. Maybe, with one pair in particular. I want these pants from American Eagle so badly. Partly because they aren't jeans (HA! They're khakis!), so I can fool myself into thinking I need them, and partly because they are the colour of a creamsicle.
Anyway, my feelings about these pants sort of mirror my relationship with TV shows generally. When a show starts to become popular, I'm likely far from interested. But after my friends wear me down over months (or years) by constantly talking about how great the program is, I typically give in and try it out. Sometimes this doesn't end well and I am simply destined to never like the show, EVEN when I stick it out and watch the full first season ("Modern Family," I'm looking at you). Today I started watching "Parks and Recreation" and I'm not loving it so far, but I'm going to try to push through once again. Luckily, this show only has six episodes in its first season so I'm actually already halfway through! I'm also supposed to watch "Community," which I'll be attempting after "Parks and Recreation."

Have you watched either of these two shows? Are there any programs that, while popular, didn't seem to live up to their hype for you?

  4. Hello Colleen! It's been far too long since I've visited your lovely blog - I hope you're well :) When it comes to coloured jeans, I actually got on board relatively quickly. Printed jeans were another matter, however. I couldn't get over how silly I thought they were, and what a waste it would be to buy a pair since the trend was bound to disappear... obviously, they're still going strong and I totally caved and frankly, I love them :)
    xox,
    Cee
    PS: I have to say, I love those khakis - I think the colour would really suit you!

    1. Well thanks so much for stopping by again! I'm doing great and hoping the same is true for you! Happy to be finished school for the year, and only have one credit left to complete my degree. I agree; printed jeans felt like a whole different ballgame to me haha I guess the comfort in this trend is just knowing that at least they're a normal pants shape, no matter what's on them. Thank you, I love them too!

  5. I am definitely a big fan of coloured pants! Those ones from American Eagle look fun, do they have a bit of a pattern on them too? Even better!
