The Art of Color

Feeling a little dark and serious after my leopard and leather outfit post so I thought I should put on something easy and more colorful.  My favorite thrifted printed blue/white dotted pants did just the trick! These were straight leg pants that I picked up for $2 and had tailored to fit a bit more harem style (not too extreme). 

Printed pants can ride a fine line between funky-cool and oh-no-pajama especially when they are a casual material like cotton.  You can find some strong examples of how to pull off printed pants compiled at WhoWhatWear  here. Somehow I think I managed to make my printed pants look casual without being too pajama-esque even in flat tennis shoes but I prefer to wear these with a lace-up boot, leather jacket, and long layered sweater.

Everything from head to toe is thrifted from St. Vincent de Paul except for the chambray button-up from Target, gifted orange wood bracelet, and my underwear. Oh and YES ma'am, I thrifted the Hot Pink Flats by Theory for $6.50 in perfect condition!  All of these clothes also happen to be the best of the casual clothes I have left before it's laundry time...hence the choice of the photoshoot location and extreme product placement....
Product Placement.
