Grey and yellow, grey and yellow,
grey and yellow, grey and yellow
Yeah, uh huh, you know what it is
Everything I do, I do it big
Personally I’m a fan of doing what others say I cannot do. (not in an illegal sense, mind you…) Tell me I can’t wear stripes, that I can’t wear bright colors, that I can’t wear body-con clothes, that I can’t mix patterns, and I’ll tell you exactly where you can stick your suggestions.
So, that being said, I’ve been obsessed with these neon yellow GAP pants ever since I came across them online. Their vibrancy is on par to a jar of highlighter fluid under a black light, but considering I’ve never met a neon I didn’t like, I was more than happy to blind all those who dared to check me out that day.
Now, while I love me some neon, I didn’t want to literally be brighter than the sun, so I toned down my pants just a bit by adding a grey blouse and grey snakeskin textured bag. I recommend pairing any shade of yellow with grey for an unexpected balance; if you wear black & yellow you’re bound to look a bit bee-ish, (which could be your thing).
And instead of wearing plain shoes, or grey or neon yellow ones (because you know I own a pair of neon yellow heels), I strapped on my geometric-heeled pixilated-floral Aldo Rise heels. It adds to the quirkiness of the outfit without overpowering the entire look.
