Two-fer and Vivian Post: Strawberry Cords paired with New Items.

I have to start today's Post by acknowledging that today on March 19th my Sweet Vivian is 14 months old. And she can even walk on her own now (still crawls a lot though). Isn't she SUPER ADORABLE on the photo above, taken just exactly a week ago? 14 months ago today, she changed my life forever. She might have been born on a cold morning but she is such a warm little girl. She blesses me every day and for that I am so grateful. Happy 14 Months Vivian!!
OK, moving on because today's post is long to write (since I have two Outfits) and it is picture-heavy, but I had to include some with Vivi, especially since they were taken the day I wore one of the Outfits. I love doing Twofer Posts where I show you the same item worn two different ways (usually worn days close to each-other). The first Outfit was worn in early March and the 2nd just last week, when I wore all my Green to anticipate St. Patty's of course. =) It's no secret that I love Colored Pants. I also love Corduroy Pants. Bold, Colored Cords are even better! Plus, I love the Strawberry Color of these and the Boot-cut Style. Express needs to make similar ones, again. =)

When wearing these Pants, I also wanted to wear some of my New Clothing + Accessories. For the first Outfit I paired them with a Black+Gold Graphic Sweatshirt (that I got for free), my Olive Military Blazer & that Statement Headband. Pinkish-Red with Olive & Black? Sure, why not. It worked. For the second Outfit I am slightly more dressed up. I knew these Pants were the perfect match for my New Sweater which is like a Light Teal Green embroided with Red+Pink Roses. I quite like the Color-blocking between the two. I also added one of my New Scarves in Teal+Turquoise which mixes Polka Dots & Small Florals together. Between the Scarf & the Sweater I am mixing my Prints but keeping the Top part Monochromatic, too. And for both Outfits I reached for some Oxford Shoes as you see. (In some photos I turned the Scarf backwards to show you guys my New Gifted Necklace - just so you know). Do you own any Colored Cords? What Color? Do you like how I styled mine?
