WIW: Colour Me Floral

Hi Ladies, I have realised only recently that I really do quite like patterned jeans and trousers! I bought these jeans over the summer break and with Autumn knocking the weight of these is just right. Yellow is generally a no go zone for me but I think worn lower on the body like this works. I have added two layered silver necklaces hoping to "lighten" the black top and of course book ending my shoes and hair. What do you think? Are the jeans over the top? BTW the jeans are grey, yellow and touches of black. Thanks xxxDeborah

    The jeans are gorgeous and not over the top at all. They look great with the shoes, and would also look good with a gray top too.

    Those are not over the top at all as far as I'm concerned. They look really nice on you! The yellow is a pleasant surprise : )

    I think the jeans are great, not OTT at all. The silver in the shoes and jewelry balances the look and your hair does provide the finishing touch! Everything goes perfectly. :-)

    I love the way those jeans pick up the colours of your hair and eyes!

    An 11 out of 10 :)

    I love it!  And those SHOES!!  I have worn my silver boat shoes much more than I expected to -- are you finding the same with those fab silver loafers?
  • Tina.b replied 7 years ago
    The jeans with the silver loafers is just divine. I love patterned pants and I pair the just like you have here. Another gorgeous and inspiring outfit!

    Not over the top at all. A great look!

    I saw what Angie saw: the golden tones in the jeans picking up your hair color. Quite lovely, but I'm wanting to see a lighter bag or something. What do you think? But we're coming into Spring and I have to remember that you're going into Autumn, lol! 
  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago
    Love them!  I think they'd look great with lighter tops, too.  Of course, that could my Spring-starved self speaking!
  • Deborah replied 7 years ago
    I'm smiling at your lovely comments because DH hasn't seen these yet and I am not sure he will like them as much as you do:) lol

    Mary, currently my preference is to wear the loafers with jeans.  They haven't had much wear over summer (too hot for closed in shoes) but I think they are going to get quite a bit of loving over Autumn and Spring:)

    Claire, I agree re the bag.  None of my lighter coloured bags seemed to workso it looks like I may have a "hole" to fill!  Any excuse :)

    I think they(the floral jeans) are gorgeous. Touches of black do bookend the black top part, and the lighter colours are bookended by your hair, so all is right! (maybe just a lighter bag?)
  • Hil replied 7 years ago
    Fantastic! What a great way to wear yellow Deborah! Lol about the DH!
  • replied 7 years ago
    Love this look Deborah! Yes, the jeans pick out the golden tones of your hair which is a great way to coordinate and I don't think they are over the top. I too think a lighter bag would be nice to have with this outfit, though you still look fab as is. Let us know what DH thinks ;)

    Really great look. I like how the pants brighten the black. The shoes are fun.
  • Raisin replied 7 years ago
    Well floral pants certainly like you! I think they work very well with the black top. You look great!

    Sorry, double post .... Still working on using the app.
  • Mona replied 7 years ago
    As always your outfit makes me smile. such nice colours in your jeans and the silver flats complete the look.
  • catherine replied 7 years ago
    You look great in those floral bottoms.
  • Transcona Shannon replied 7 years ago
    These floral jeans look great on you Deborah - not OTT at all. I also really like the pairing of them with those silver loafers. So pretty.
  • Angie replied 7 years ago
    I'm waiting for hubby's reaction, Debs with the beautiful icy blue eyes.
  • rachylou replied 7 years ago
    I like that you paired them with a black top. A white top would have been too sweet, I think.
  • Suz replied 7 years ago
    LOVE!!! So fresh!

    Love these on you!  Different, bold, yet still true to your style. Fabulous!
  • T-Rex replied 7 years ago
    I love the jeans. I've decided I need to add a pair of patterned jeans to my own wardrobe.
  • Ornella replied 7 years ago
    Lovely. Gorgeous shoes, pants, the top part of the outfit, the necklace, everything.
    But I must say I am curious what it would look in an outfit with no black in it?
  • Aida replied 7 years ago
    Definitely not over the top. Styled really nicely here, and with just the right amount of black to be Very Deborah :) I love the peek of silver from your shoes, my favorite touch!
  • K. Period. replied 7 years ago
    Gorgeous!  So clever to wear a color you couldn't otherwise wear as a bottom. I love that trick!  You always look fabulous, Deborah! 
  • claracluck replied 7 years ago
    ylf of course .the rest of the outfit lets the trousers be the star .they are gorgeous. a perfect balance as ever of statement and understatement.
  • Carole replied 7 years ago
