Neon + Neutral

These bright pink pants usually get me a few comments throughout the day; note that I said comments and not compliments, because the reaction is more along the lines of "Wow, those are some very pink pants you are wearing."

Which probably translates to: "I think you are nuts."

I love them though, and my sequined stripes, and my new white Cynthia Rowely Blazer from TJ Maxx that Christine tracked down for me.

Ooh, I love those pants! I still wish I had bought them from Old Navy last year.

I love when people state the obvious about my clothes - I get a lot of "That's a bright sweater" whenever I wear my neon yellow sweater. And like you said, it usually means the speaker thinks I'm crazy for wearing it :)

I love this on you - the pink pants are so cute and you wear them so well with the stripes and the great blazer (I am so happy you got that, BTW).

I know the feel.
A comment without any adjectives- other than a color.
Well, I like them and i think you did a great job with that white blazer. It's starting to look like summer.
Today we received our first raindrops - raining season is approaching.

Ah yes, comments. I know them well. I still want to find pink pants... and red pants, and blue pants. I just really want some colorful pants, but I feel as if it is just not meant to be. The collar on this blazer is so sharp! White is my absolute favorite color for a blazer. The first blazer I ever had was white, and I wore it until it was more grey. I might actually still have the thing. I should look.

I should find some pink pants for summer. I have some pink cords, but they are too hot during the summer.

Ugh. Even when people mean well, but give me comments like that, I'm like "really? Is that all you have to say? And what exactly do you mean by that?"

At any rate, these ARE pink pants but also fabulous and fabulous with the striped top!

Oh what do people know about great pink pants? Here's a compliment; I adore the look! Love the nautical vibe here but instead of red going for pink is awesome!

Lyddie - Just lovely as always. I love the whole look - the blazer just adds so much sophistication to the outfit. It looks great on you. I get the same thing when I wear my blue pants...comments.. Don't care though because I plan on getting other colored pants very soon!

Clara Turbay said...

It´s great to see what you are doing in this blog.

Meredith said...

Love those pants. In my experience too, it's so funny how many adults have a hard time filtering their reactions to things I wear...it's not offensive, just interesting. I love color and usually can't go one day without wearing something bright.

Shey said...

They are bright pants but I think you did a great job toning down the colors with the classic cut of the blazer and classic striped shirt. Everything works well together.=)

Ali said...

WOW THESE ARE SOME REALLY PINK PANTS YOU ARE WEARING
very pink

you are so nuts
~~craAAazzYyy gurl~~

no, not really, I think they're way supa cool and not that in your face at all. Such a pretty shade! And I like how you paired them with that jacket that fits you super perfectly.

Shabby, Chic, & Cheap said...

I always love when you wear those pink capri's! The jacket balances and pulls the whole outfit together! So glad someone was able to track it down for you!

I love your description of "comments not compliments." whenever anyone says something like that to me I always think, "gee, could you be any more obvious??"

Style Journey said...

You and Tara from Mix and Match Fashion inspired me to hunt down a pair of bright pink pants of my own! You always style them perfectly :) Heather

Chrysta @ LiveAndLoveWork.com said...

I wore an outfit that was very bold and I got the most interesting comments from, "wow, look at you!" to "that's one helluva an outfit!" hahahaha. I wasn't quite sure what to make of it.
