"My Heart Finds A Dream In These Unseen Hues"

Occasionally I wear pants (gasp!) and when I do, they're either some cool and comfortable pants or some well-fitted denim. These J. Crew trousers feel nice to the touch, have a gorgeous print, and have lovely leather detailing on the pockets. I still can't shake the notion that leggings, tights, or bare legs are more comfortable, but I do like the look of pants sometimes with certain shirts or shoes. 

I opted for punches of color with these pants, including a vintage mustard blouse, a Gap cardigan, and my beloved mulberry Anna Sui lace-up wedge booties. These jewel tones work together well because they're all around the same amount of color saturation. I accessorized with a collar necklace I bought at a market in China a couple years ago, and the bag that I take almost everywhere with me lately. It's hard to find a bag that's stylish, the perfect size (fits a water bottle!), matches almost everything, and I can wear or carry. It's made by the Lord & Taylor brand but I found it at one of the L train thrift shops. When I go out on weekends I tend to vary my bag choices, but during the work week I like to know all of the things that I need will definitely be in there.

Style Tip: Try to create a look that flows with every piece being an entirely different color! If you incorporate neutrals and the saturation is consistent, you'll come up with something not only colorful but refreshing.
