No one needs a pair of yellow jeans–and now I have two. But they’re so different from each other! My other pair is mustard yellow skinnies. These are cropped, loose and day-glo! Plus, I’m participating in Not Dead Yet’s Visible Monday link-up and neon seemed very appropriate.
Top: Street market in Florida
Pants: The Gap
I bought them in Boston (before my shopping ban). They were 40% off the lowers price and came in at about $17. I could justify it. I’ve worn them a lot already.
It’s funny: I wore these pants with a white top and leopard shoes, just like I wore the mustard ones. But I’ve also worn these with patterned tops, chambray, and bright solids.
I like neon (just like I liked it in the 80s) but I seem to be collecting only yellow pieces. I should branch out and try lime, orange, or hot pink. I already have neon yellow maxi skirt, envelope clutch and belt. I’ve heard monochromatic is big for fall but head-to-toe neon is a bit much.
Do you wear neon? What colors?

I don’t wear neon, but I am glad you do – these are really great jeans! And yes, a pair in hot orange would be fab too. Thanks so much for sharing your look with Visible Monday.
Glad I could participate! Neon orange would be great! Safety orange 🙂
Neon is one trend I have yet to participate in (at least in this decade). But I have seen ways that I love it worn and this is one. So cheerful and looks classy. Plus, I love your pose in the first pic!!! Happy Monday, Jean! ~Sarah
Thanks Sarah. Whenever I’m wearing flats, I tend to go tippy-toe in poses. Funny! Glad it’s not too dorky!
That is beautiful!!
I love these jeans…We are totally twins. Comfy and you can’t beat the color! 🙂
I love that colour of jeans too.. It totally matches my hair! ;P
Kachet, we are! I loved your neutral and yellow look. You’re always stunning, so it’s no surprise.
Jane, you’re right – lovely blonde hair 🙂
Lovely in yellow! Really cute photos…tippy- toe and all!
Isn’t Carmen your mom? You are your mom’s daughter…both of you are so gorgeous!
Thank you for the sweet compliments 🙂 And yes, Carmen is my mom. Two fashion bloggers in the family http://fashionableover50.wordpress.com/
A very nice outfit, yellow pants are beautiful.
Thank you – they’re fun and cheery.
Neon’s is not for me- but I love the trend as long as it’s mixed with a calming color like tan. I want a pair of safety orange sunglasses- seen in a drugstore and keep thinking about them. My own ’80’s roots come back to haunt me.
I agree – mixing neon with a calming neutral is smart. I think you should get th esunglasses. It’s an inexpensive way to experiment. They’d look great on you 🙂
Wow, those are some fun pants! I just bought my very first neon items not too long ago – a yellow belt and a pair of black flats with neon yellow cap toes. I figured I’d start small! 🙂
I bought a neon belt too – I think it was my first piece. It’s always good to start small. The ballet flats sound cute!
