I'm wearing an Anthropologie green shirt ($11 - buy it!), secondhand blue scarf ($3), thrifted and skinnied Forever 21 yellow jeans ($6), and JCPenney berry heels (free) with vintage Gucci bucket bag ($3).

These are the same pants I skinnied here. My first pair of colored jeans -- I am finally cool. Do you guys have any colored jeans? I think next on my list are red and/or pink ones.

Naturally, I paired these with every and any color I could find in my closet. Now I want some Skittles. And by some I mean a whole bag just for me. Only the yellow ones please. And I guess green too. The rest are gross.

Pssst... Don't forget... The Lime Ricki swimsuit giveaway is still going on! Enter to win a modest one-piece swimsuit!

  1. I love the color blocking that you have going on here! Color blocking is the trend this season. Especially with all the crazy colors and patterns this season. I love your high heels and your scarf! You look beautiful as always!

  2. I love, love the color of these jeans! I have a light purple pair. I can't believe you altered these yourself! The look great. I normally just take my dress pants and jeans to a professional but after reading your posts I think I'll take a chance and try to hem skinnies in the future!

  10. I love my bright pink skinnies I recently thrifted--there's just something so fashion forward about colored pants, isn't there?

    I recently got my first pair of colored jeans too! They're kind of a burnt red color. I'm so convinced that they'll work with so many tops that I've included them in my 30 for 30. Your yellow pair are so pretty!

    Yayyyy! The yellow jeans! They look oh so good with those bright heels! I think you should trying wearing them with navy soon! I love navy and yellow together :)

  36. You pulled off this colorful look so well!  It's seriously perfect.

    PS Can I have all the red skittles?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Too cute... I can't believe that anything Anthropologie sells is $11!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love how you worked these colors!
    I have a pair of purple skinny jeans that I got from F21 for something under $15. I have to take them in at the waist but aside from that, they're perfect. I seriously want some red or green ones though. One or the other and I'll be the happiest camper in Fashion Woods.

  42. Love those pants! I have some bright blue ones...and want red or pink next!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am also a fan of the yellow and green skittles :) Also, I love the greenish yellow combo on top - it's a loud color, but it really works as a neutral in this case.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Very fun, Skittles inspired outfit! I definitely vote for red or pink pants!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I guess I can't be your BFF anymore (?).

    Yellow and green Skittles are awful. They taste like tempera. But your outfit looks cute! I don't have any colored jeans, just white, which I haven't worn yet. :S

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love the pale yellow! I want a pair of colored skinny jeans too.  I'm between red (like yourself) and teal. 

    ReplyDelete
  49. oh my gosh i adore the mix of colors here! the buttery and mustardy yellows look so great together (even if those two flavors don't exactly work together :) i don't have colorful jeans YET, but i do have a pair of cobalt blue denim shorts on their way to me. i was feeling unsure about what to do with them, but this outfit is very inspiring.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have a pair of Sea-Green skinnies! What?? Red and Purple are the best  Skittles!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I do NOT have a pair of colored jeans, and now I want a butter yellow pair so bad that I cannot even think of candy.  And that's big, Elaine.  REAL big.

  52. Just discovered your blog; LOVE it! You have great taste, and so affordable. Wondering how you scored a Gucci vintage for $3. Either way, your outfit is so adorable! Love how the colors all play into each other.
