Primary Colors

I’m actually surprised that these neon pants are still in rotation. I bought them over a year ago and thought they’d be a fad. But at $10, I didn’t mind.

yellow and blue

Top: H&M
Pants: The Gap
Upcycled belt: Couch Guitar Straps
Shoes: Flexx
Ring: Etsy Rain craft fair

Well, I love the boyfriend cut and how comfortable they are. And, despite being painfully bright, I like the color. Definitely noticeable. Every time ย I wear them I get compliments–or at least comments!

upcycled belt

Today, instead of wearing neutrals, I went primary. The complementary color to yellow is blue, so I thought that would work. And for fun, I added a red vinyl belt. It’s made from deadstock (unused materials) and would have been a VW seat but sat in a warehouse, unneeded, until the Couch Guitar Straps company rescued the fabric and turned it into belts and guitar straps.

I was trying for an all-color, no black outfit. I did, at least, stick to neutral footwear. Green is a secondary color but I managed to wear by green nerds ring (it’s made of tiny candy set in resin). Not edible, but really fun.

On a side note, now that my hair is longer I’ve been using my Hana flat iron a lot more. I love the results and I’m glad I had the chance to try it as my hair was growing out.

I joined the Anything & Everything blog hop at My Thrifty Chic, Monday Bloom at DC in Style, Style Sessions at Style Elixirย and Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet. Check out what everyone else is wearing!

  3. What a colourful match! Great idea for me to combine them, too.

  4. Love those bright pants. They look great with that blue top.

  5. Perfect way to wear ‘um, too. Color block, neutral shoe, simple accessories. Be careful where you wear this outfit, because you WILL get attention, but surely the right kind!

  6. You got these pants for $10?-noooo way!!! Great find, and you styled this look perfectly!

    Nice pop of color and nice color combination. Your belt really fits in well as well. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are having a great Summer.

    • Thank you! I liked going bold. I thought of you today because I bought four pair of ballet flats at H&M. They’re not Tory Burch, but you might like the style. I’ll be showing them in future posts. Hope your summer is going well. Mine is, but it’s flying by!
