Loving My New Camo Pants from Express! And More Sweaters...

My latest purchase from Express came, and I cannot be happier with my Stella Brushed Sateen Ankle Legging in camo!  Express is having some really good sales, but these are not on sale.  They are $79.90.  However, if you google for express coupon codes, you will for sure save some money.  I ordered these along with some other stuff on sale, and found a code that was $40 off $120, making these $54.  That code works on top of already 40% off sale items!  I feel like they are giving stuff away right now lol.  Anyway, I love these leggings, but I would hate to pay full price for them because Express always has sales and discounts.

I got these in size 2, which is the same size I always get in their jeans/jeggings.  And it is the right size in these as well.  The material is cotton and lycra spandex, so they are very comfy and stretchy.  It doesn't look like it would wrinkle easily which is great.  They look like true ankle leggings on the model, but on me they pretty much go down all the way and cover my ankles completely.  I like the length better on the model, so I roll them up twice to achieve the same look.  I lose some camo print on the rolled cuffs, but I think it doesn't look bad anyway since the inside is camo green color as well.  I think camo looks awesome with orange, so here I am wearing them with my orange ribbed tank and Donald J Pliner Pausha pumps that are an exact match in color!

Of course good old black will go perfectly well with these leggings too.  I love my Lija Fuse Approach tank, because the fit is loose and yet doesn't make you look pregnant.  I think loose fitting tops go well with tight fitting bottoms.  This look is pretty cool, and I would totally walk around in this outfit even though this is a workout tank technically.  No one can really tell!

I actually went to the Express store yesterday, because the Striped Slub Knit baseball tee I got in neutral actually had a hole in it that I didn't notice till I took the tags off!  Express is pretty damn good with returns/exchanges though, so even though they were sold out of that exact tee for me to exchange, they let me have the Slub Knit Baseball Tee (which was not on sale and costs $12 more) instead as an even exchange.  I got it in dusty moss, which is pretty much an army green color.  It is the exact tee that the model wears in the camo legging photos.  It looks more brown than green on their website, but definitely green in person.

On me, with the leggings:

I got this tee in size small for the loose fit.  I love burnout material and I love baseball style tees.  This is pretty much perfect.

I had already ordered another Striped Knit Slub Baseball tee in blue, so I'm not that upset over losing the one in neutral.  Kind of rather have the one above that is non-striped and camo green.  But I like this blue striped one too.  With the 40% off and my coupon, this only costs me $6.  Lol.

Same as the neutral color I got last time, this one is size XS.  It fits a little tighter than the non-striped tee in S.  But definitely still loose enough.  Express sizes really run very large.  Here it is on me, even though I would never wear it with the camo leggings, but I already had them on so oh well!

I also got 2 more Studded Bateau Neck Ruched Sleeve sweaters since I love the white one so much!  And they cost only $8 now.  Hahahaha.  It's seriously really funny to me how cheap they are!  And they are really nice sweaters!!  I got it in pitch black and aquarium.

Pitch black looks great with the camo leggings too.  This sweater is kind of military inspired style, with the studded shoulders.  So paired with camo leggings, you really can't go wrong.  This one is size XS, same as my white one:

Gold studs
I think it looks really cute on the model as well with black bottoms and matching studded clutch:

Or, paired with white bottoms is nice looking too:

I had to get the aquarium colored one in size S because XS was sold out.  I figured there wouldn't be that big of a difference, but it is actually bigger than I thought.  It's definitely looser fitting, especially in the tummy area.  And it is longer as well.  I don't mind this fit.

Studs are silver in the blue one

Lastly, I got this Striped Rolled Sleeve Tunic Sweater in gray also for $8!  I like that it is a sweater, but it has shirt sleeves that can be rolled up and buttoned.  It makes the sweater perfect for work.  It does run very big though.  I got it in size XS, which is the smallest size offered, and it is still very loose fitting.

I just realized I forgot to take a picture of this on me.  Oh well, I'll have to do it later because I'm starving now and have to go make food!  :)  

But seriously, how great are these deals??
