I pulled these pants out from the back of my closet. I think I’ve only worn them twice because the color scares me and I don’t know why. They’re not that much brighter than regular denim pants and yet when I put them on, I feel like they’re screaming. I don’t particularly like wearing “Crayola” outfits, meaning any one bright color with another bright color. I shy away from wearing primary colors together because then there’s just too much color for me.
Therefore, I have a hard time figuring out what to wear with these pants and that’s why they ended up in the back of the closet. I do like the look of the black sweater with them but I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone (but not too much) so I added the bright fuchsia scarf. I like the balance of the black between the two brighter colors, so it works.
Weird fact about me: I hate carrying purses so I never change them out from outfit to outfit. I rarely change them out at all. The most I do is throw a few important things in a clutch when I feel like adding a pop of color or don’t feel like carrying the big purse. If I were the type to change out my purse, I would have a bunch of them (I only have, like, 3) and I would be carrying a pink or black one with this outfit. But I’m not so I don’t. I love this purse (all things considered) so I just carry it.
And here’s the fun one! I can stretch in these pants if I need to run from something.
