Today I was not going to let a heat advisory change my outfit plans! I was wearing these cobalt blue pants for today’s Trend Spin Link-Up no matter what.

I’m kind of regretting it.

I rolled up the bottoms of these pants as a nod to the fact that it was already almost 80 degrees at 8:30 AM but it’s not helping. Today I am thankful for air conditioning and the fact that I don’t have to leave my office at all today if I don’t want. Does that count as something to be grateful for, Katie?

In fact, I’ve been debating purchasing a cobalt blue skirt so I can still wear cobalt when it’s hot outside but I didn’t think I needed a skirt and a pair of pants in the same color. I’m rethinking that decision as well.

Hey! Do you wonder what I do when I’m not standing in front of the camera? I’ve got a list of upcoming running-related events I’m participating in over at my fitness blog.

    I have a cobalt blue skirt and I have definitely been considering getting cobalt pants. I think that it’s fine to have a skirt and pants in the same color– the tops that work with one will then definitely work with the other. Hope it cools down some so you can wear your pants in comfort 🙂

    Here’s to sitting in the a/c all day! I popped over to the gym on my lunch break, and even the block walk there was pretty brutal!

    Your pants are great! I love the color – cobalt is quickly becoming a favorite of mine – and the fit is great as well. I like how you rolled up the legs to stay a little cooler. It has been ungodly hot in Minnesota lately as well, ICK. It makes it so hard to get dressed or do anything other than stay in the house…blech!
