Making it work

all items remix'd
top: Old Navy
vest: Charlotte Russe
pants: Express
boots: Loft
sunnies: Dsquared

I have been dying to buy some brightly colored skinny jeans this season but have been holding off because a) I don't want to fork out a lot of dough, b) I haven't tried that many different styles on and c) my closet is already bursting at the seams. So I thought I would create the illusion of bright pants with these capris. They will do for now, they are just not quite as fitted as I would like.

Reds and pinks photograph so brightly that you can't tell that the shirt is actually red and the pants are pink. I never would have thought to wear these together a couple years ago, but I think it works.

Great idea using your capris. Love the long vest and gingham top too :)

Have you tried New York & Company for colored pants? They had blue, green, and purple at last check on their website.

I like how you made the capris work for cooler weather. I have been holding off on buying bright jeans too, for the same reasons.

Love the creativity! Hmm... how can I wear my red capris in winter... in an office that doesn't allow shoes?!?! Time to get my thinking cap!

How cute! I love the purple-grey vest and boots to 'tone down' the bright colors. The capris work great in my opinion. Go you for making your closet work instead of buying something new.
