Yellow pants!

I am very open to the use of yellow. I like it in accessories, home interiors and when used on clothes. It doesn't always go my way though.

Last year I bought a pair of jeans from Topshop and I was so very excited to wear them. I quickly realised though that they were that kind of denim that reveals your cellulite to the world...thin material/grossly unflattering.

I never give up though and when I saw these chinos in GAP it was a "bingo" moment. GAP being GAP I knew the fit would be generous and slouchy - even if they define the fit as skinny. They are also that perfect in-the-middle shade - bright but not so much that you couldn't wear these to work.

I paired them with the standard uniform. I call this "digital agency casual" because it's exactly what I would wear to work :) ....H&M white vest/old Zara blazer with shoulder pads/big back-aching bag and heels that look nice but are damn uncomfortable!

  17. I love the look! The shoes look amazing as well. Are they super uncomfortable? For some reason I always thought the more expensive the better quality and therefore a more comfortable shoe.

  22. Yellow jeans are a difficult one for me - last time I wore them on the blog, I got so many negative comment and I usually don't get any! What is the issue? They are gorgeous - as you have proved here. I'm totally wearing mine again having been inspired by your outfit. Have the perfect navy jacket to wear too. Thank you! Avril x

  41. i wish i had the confidence to pull off coloured trousers like this! the colour is lovely and so summery! i think they make a change to the safe colours that most people go for when choosing a pair of trousers. i love that you've paired them with other block colours to make the outfit really cool! LOVING those shoes - just a shame their painful (but who cares when they look like that eh? ;) ) X

  45. I'm loving these yellow trousers! I'm pretty tempted to divulge into the world of yellow but I'm milk bottle pale.

    What do you suggest for us paler ladies - brights or pastels?
