A Work of Art

Cardigan, Red Shirt: J. Crew, Blue Shirt: H&M, Belt: F21, Pants: H&M, 
Shoes: MIA via DSW, Necklace: J. Crew, Bracelets: J. Crew and F21 

For me, assembling an outfit is an artistic process. I fancy myself an artist with a glorious pallete [read: closet] of my favorite colors, attempting to break out of the box and try new things. 
When I first began putting this ensemble together, I had my doubts. I mean, fiery red pants with a red button up? It was a bit overwhelming at first. But add a few more layers and voila! A masterpiece! 
Layers can add variety, allowing you to use a lot of colors and break up an otherwise monochromatic color scheme. Thankfully it's frigid outside, because these layers in any other weather would result in heat stroke. And aren't these pants fab?! They're bright, bold, and perfect for a stand-out ensemble!
Now you tell me. Are you in to the ultra-bright pants? Yes? How do you style them?


  1. So cute! I'm still deciding whether I can pull off the brightly-colored pants or not. I feel like they'll either be totally awesome or make me look like I have a little too much booty.

  2. omg, can I please come and shop in your closet!I love this entire outfit! And it looks so great on you!

  3. Ummm you look gorg!!! Your so right, putting an outfit together is a work of art!! I'm in love with colored jeans!! I have red and pink and am craving a green pair. Wahoo for a pop of color!!

  4. love those pants!
