Black and Yellow is all the Buzz

I like bees (we need them to pollinate or we wouldn’t have flowers and produce!) but I hope this outfit doesn’t look too beelike.

Top: Boxhagner Flea Market, Berlin
Pants: See by Chloe
Boots: Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather
Necklace: Boutique in Berlin

My mom asked me to join her style challenge. We’d both bought this black top with matching cami at the Boxi flea market in Berlin. You can see how my mom styled it here (and see the cute donkeys at the animal sanctuary she was at the day of her photo shoot).

I wore yellow pants and new shoes that I also bought in Germany. These faux suede western-inspired booties are by Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather, a vegan French company. I bought them at Veganista, an adorably vegan eco boutique in Munich. (You can read about Veganista in the München section of this post.)

Next time I challenge myself to mix this top into my wardrobe, I might try a contrasting cami and black pants. How would you wear it?

Color-blocking my Colorful Pants

When Everybody, Everywhere announced that the next group challenge would be colored pants, I was stoked. I love colorful pants, especially denim. In fact, the hardest part about this challenge was deciding whether to go with my yellow, purple, orange, or pink jeans.

pink and violet

Pink won. Mainly because these are the only pair I hadn’t showcased yet on my blog. I picked these up at JC Penneys for a mere $11 last summer. At the time, I wasn’t sure how I was going to style them, but I didn’t have a lot to lose.

Jeans: JC Penneys
Shoes: Dr. Scholl’s
Necklace: Vendor in Santa Fe
Bracelets: Claire’s

I love the snap detailing at the ankle. I get complimented on these pants a lot. Often, people just say, “wow, those sure are bright!” They’re bright, sure, but they go with a lot. I’ve worn this with white, black, gray, and even stripes of different kinds. Today, I tried a color-blocked look with a solid violet-blue top and marigold ballet flats.
