Yellow Skinnies in the Winter

By this time, most of you have some denim in a color other than indigo or black.  I am a little obsessed with the colored pants trend and, at last count, have 8 pair (with one in the mail, see yesterday's post). To be fair, I'm including white & leopard even though those technically aren't colors.  This particular limon CAbi pair scared me when I first saw them last spring.  They're really bright.  They're also short (above the ankle), so they read very spring-y unless they're inside boots. But as things do, they grew on me, & now I'm pairing them with a lot!  Why not wear a fun spring color in the dead of winter?

Below is what I actually wore today: a nautical stripe shirt & a very fall/winterish fringe sweater (also from CAbi) with my Frye boots. I thought the horizontal vs. vertical stripes were interesting, and the yellow skinnies acted as a neutral with both tee & sweater.  The brown boots tied it all together. 
I happened to be shopping today, & tried on this darling navy stripe long cardigan at Nordstrom Rack, which I loved.
which look do you like more?  

Don't save summer colors for warm weather, you can wear them in the cold by pairing them back to darker neutrals.
