With me, there’s always color or more color (when I’m not on a total neutral bender which often happen on the weekends). After seeing the J.Crew Minnie Pants in Medallion print on other ladies on Instagram, I decided I had to try them out. I am admittedly not a huge fan of orange but seeing them styled a few different ways and realizing they were really more on the coral side of things, I decided to try them out. Well…suffice it to say I have another fun pair of printed pants in my collection! Now, how to style them! One would probably suggest that they need to be toned down…which I would agree with but, come on, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t pair them at least once with a bright color.
Cue my Valentine’s Day outfit (ok, so I’m a month late posting…) I’ll be honest, if it hadn’t been Valentine’s day, I’m not sure I would have rocked this outfit. Maybe…but I can’t say for sure. Let’s just say nobody missed me that day! If I had wanted to tone this outfit down, I would have swapped the pink vest for a black blazer (that’s how I started out).
And now for a little more toned down…It was Friday and I had a happy hour after work so I wanted to be able to go right from work to happy hour. Even with the statement necklace which I wore over my sweater, my neck was lonely so I added in the J.Crew Factory version of the Crystal Venus flytrap necklace
The top down shot can be a little deceiving so here’s the front on shot. I have to say, this is probably one of my new favorite outfits! I look forward to wearing it again!
So, which of these is your favorite? Do you like these pants paired with another bright color or toned down with black and chambray? Would love to hear what you think and thanks for visiting!!
