Tone It Down

Top: Old Navy  |  Red Skinny Jeans: Buffalo Exchange  |  Shoes: Target  |  Necklace: Etsy (shop)  |  

I debated for months about whether or not I'd buy red skinny jeans (and/or green and blue), and in the end I decided I wouldn't.  But, when you find a well-fitting pair at a consignment store, you kind of have to get them.  It's the rule.

I ran through a bunch of color options to pair with these red skinnies, like black, white, navy, and even coral, but those combos felt too bold for the softer vibe I was feeling on this particular day.  I wanted to wear red pants, just toned down a little.  Then I remembered seeing Jodi pair red with brown and felt it fit my mood perfectly.  And, BTW, did you know when you wear red pants you get stared at a lot?  

You might notice these pics are a lot better than my normal ones.  You can thank my friend who happened to have his camera while we were together (and happens to be one of my few friends who knows about my secret little style blog).  :)

  3. Colored pants are so fun, especially red jeans!  They are so versatile and can be dressed up, dressed down, color blocking, the possibilities are endless! Love the way you styled yours :)

  4. That's a lovely outfit! I haven't decided whether to get red skinnies or not, but I'm with you...if I found some at a thrift store, I might have to. ;-)

  8. Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh Audrey! I wore my hot pink pants today! We have to stop meeting like this. I never really considered brown and red together, but everything works so well! I'll have to remember that the next time I'm stumped for outfit ideas.

  9. I do love the change of scenery! :D You're so cute!

    I really like that top. Old Navy was having some KILLER sales (and I thought of you actually) and I went O.N. crazy! I would never think to pair these colors together (knowing me I would've been like, oh white matches!) but I really like this combination.

  11. I haven't seen that post--you're right, I didn't know about your blog at that point.  But nonetheless, I actually thought of you and how you would probably comment on the staring/red pants thing!

  12. Girl, I went ON crazy too.  I got 5 blouses and they were each like $7.  I got two polka dot tees for $4 each.  It was insanity.

  13. Of course you were wearing hot pink pants today.  OF COURSE, JESS.  It couldn't be any other way.
