WIW: Some old and some new

Thank you to all those who supported me in my decision to give up my 30x30 challenge. It felt so good to put that challenge behind me and enjoy my summer wardrobe. :)

A few days back I wore my new spectacle print t shirt and my neon legging jeans. This was such a fun outfit! My husband cannot stand these jeans though, they are just too bright for him :P

Today I wore my grey printed dress with a fun new purchase - my obi belt! My friend Megan Mae makes these with thrifted men's ties. I got a lot of compliments on this belt today and even hubs said it looks 'pretty cool', although he insists on calling it my 'Obi Wan Kanobi belt'! Btw, if you're interested in checking these belts out, you can check out Megan's blog - http://www.meganmaedaily.com/p/obi-belts.html.

What do you think of these outfits? :)

    Heh heh, I love the Obi Wan belt! You look like you are having a lot of fun now - how can you not have fun in those yellow pants??

  • CocoLion replied 10 years ago

    Great looks both of them. The dress with the one-of-a-kind obi belt really stands out as a classic yet unique look.

    I personally love all of these neon brights. But a lot of people, who aren't as open minded to fashion (and I'm not saying your DH isn't!), don't like them. Last night there was an attractive woman at our restaurant in a neon pink track suit. The other server (a female) wasted no time making disparaging comments about her outfit.

    I love the neon bright jeans! And may I also suggest that you try this color in a top because I think it would look great with your skintone:). If it makes you feel any better, my DH wouldn't like these jeans either;)
    As for the obi belt-I LOVE this idea, its so creative! I am going to check your friend's site for sure

    Your neon jeans are cute! Poor hubs. He will need to wear his sunglasses I guess. I love the obi belt made from men's ties. What a terrific idea! And why do husbands come up with silly names for our fashionable things? I have a Calvin Klein front-zip dress that DH insists on referring to as my "jumpsuit". Now every time I wear it I feel like a mechanic! :/

    Claire: I have a leather bracelet with gold harware and DH refers to it as "Wonder Woman's Bracelet";0)

    Thanks rae! And yep, summer dressing just got a lot more fun!

    I'm so glad you like the drss and belt combo Denise. Neon definitely isn't everyone's cup of tea! My husband takes some time to get used to the trends I adopt, but they grow on him eventually! He was the same about my floral pants, but he is okay with them now :-D

    Victoria: Men! They just don't get it sometimes ;-) Thanks for the suggestion of looking out for a neon topper, I love the idea of a blazer in this hue.

    Claire: Yep! Especially in the sunlight because they are bright with a capital B! Ha ha ha a jumpsuit?! Husbands say the darndest things :-P

    I love the jeans :)

    And what a great little frock! Fab obi-tie belt too. Now wonder you got lots of compliments!

  • Kiwichik replied 10 years ago

    Love those bright & cheerful sunny jeans. The obi is very cool. The force is with you.

  • Meredith1953 replied 10 years ago

    I love you in those sunny jeans! The dress is really cute on you and your obi is beautiful!

  • Beth Ann replied 10 years ago

    It seems as is you were ready for another surge of creativity in your wardrobe, Kirti! Both of these looks are fresh, but very you. I think the neon will probably grow on DH over time. The world needs plenty of sunny color! I love obi belts, and yours is wonderfully whimsical and clever!

  • JR replied 10 years ago

    Kirti, you do bright colours like nobody else! (I've been lurking here a while.) My hubby says my straw fedora makes me look like an Amish farmer. I told him even they get it right sometimes. And I kept wearing it...

  • ManidipaM replied 10 years ago

    You look twice as fantastic as you did during the challenge, and that's speaking volumes!

    I'm loving the humour of the (sun)glasses with the bright yellow pants! And the dress outfit is genius with the 'tie' belt and the Indian-style flats. One of your best ever!

  • harmonica replied 10 years ago

    Bright and beautiful! I love both jeans, dress and belt. So much fun with the printed top and yellow jeans and the dress is just wonderful!

  • Kirti replied 10 years ago

    Thank you Angie! :-)

    Kiwichik: Ha ha ha :-D thanks! :-D

    Thank you Mer!

    Beth Ann: Totally! I am so glad the sales are on here because I have added few but fun things to liven everything up :-) thanks!

    JR: Thank you! And Inam sure the straw hat looks adorable on you! :-)

    Manidipa: Thank you! You give the loveliest compliments :-)

    Thanks harmonica!

    The neon pants are amazing! I love them on you and that is such a cute top. The dress is gorgeous! Great belt.

  • Kirti replied 10 years ago

    Thanks Deborah :-)

  • replied 10 years ago

    So cute, Kirti, I love both outfits! Your husband is too funny!

  • Jonesy replied 10 years ago

    I love the jeans and the dress/belt combo is great! Sometimes you just gotta wear what makes you happy and the SOs just have to deal with it!

  • Kirti replied 10 years ago

    Thanks Alicat! And yep, he totally is :-D

    Thank you Jonesy! I agree, the pants make me feel fab and that matters the most. :-)

  • catgirl replied 10 years ago

    So cute! I have those yellow jeans from the Gap and just bought a pair on super-sale for my 15 year old niece. The color is so much fun.

  • Kirti replied 10 years ago

    Una: Totally! These sold out on the first day of the sales!
