Y'all, I have a confession to make.
Hello my name is Megan and I'm addicted to colored skinnies. I bought one pair of papaya-colored skinnies from J. Crew back in the spring and that one first taste of colorful brilliance created a bit of a monster.
I now have a closet full of rainbow-legs.
I wasn't ready to give up my colorful bottoms just because temperatures have dipped below 60° of late, so I've been busily figuring out ways to style them for fall and winter. I thought I'd show you a few of the outfits I wore this past week that I thought worked well. And there's a bonus outfit at the end that includes jeans, but not skinnies, and not in a bright color.
Consider it my gift to your eyeballs.
Here's a little Pin-spiration photo I found of orange skinnies with an Aran sweater. I happen to have (and LOVE) both orange skinnies and an Aran sweater, so you can imagine how delighted I was to stumble across this combination. I wore this outfit on Saturday, which was a day of non-stop activity, so all I got was this crummy old Instagram photo that makes the jeans look red. But trust me, they are very, very orange.
And I even had the leopard shoes from the Pinterest photo, too!

I'm so into navy right now. I liked the way the neutral worked with bright jeans in the outfit above, so the next day, I paired a navy shirt with green pants.

Yesterday the remnants of Hurricane Sandy blew hard cross our plains, so I threw my hair into a quick side braid before hopping out to very quickly capture these pictures, lest I have nothing to show you but a bunch of pictures of a great big hair-ball with red legs.

Today I'm taking a break from colored skinnies to wear a dark-wash matchstick jean from J. Crew.

Tomorrow I'll be back to colored skinnies again, trying out a look inspired by this Pinterest find.
Can't wait to show you my Pin-spired look next week.
