Sometimes when I'm shopping the strangest things catch my eye...
the rainbow vintage Louis Vuitton bucket, the pink brocade jacket I couldn't get out of my mind for months, the leather fanny pack... and now, the striped baseball pants (or, more sartorially called "pedal pushers") I bought from The Consistency Project.
I like to think my subconscious is even more about trend-forecasting than I am; Who What Wear just named the pedal pusher pant a rising summer trend, as did Vogue this past spring. I'm now so happy my friends and subconscious (and instagram followers, via a poll) pushed me to buy the pushers. Given their color I knew I wanted to go with a "watermelon" theme, adding a pink crop top to offset the bagginess of the pants and play off the colors.
Ofcourse, I went full-on-trendy and added the summer's hottest bag, the market bag!
