Jester's Court (See Jane Wear)

Andre J top (same brand as these shorts), H&M pants + belt, UO necklace, J Crew shoes, Ray Ban wayfarers, clutch - gift from friend
Everyone is loving the color-blocking trend this season--even this girl.  I wore this outfit out one weekend night and while I like it, looking back I realize that it's a bit jester-esque (seriously, google image "jester" and tell me if you don't laugh).  Regardless, I especially love these pants and have been wearing them nonstop--especially to work.  They're the perfect high-waist and they must be good because Eric looks at them with a bit of confusion ('why are they up so high?' he asks). 


I'll definitely be trying the color-blocking trend again--just perhaps with different pieces.  How about you?

This is one of my favorite outfits of yours...something about the combination of magenta and blue together, you look gorgeous!

Christina said...

Love those shoes! This to me is a pretty natural color pairing in my mind. Nothing crazy about it at all.

Collections said...

Love this look on you those pants are great as is the color of your shirt! I've wanted to try color blocking but I'm sort of afraid of it at the same time, I'm not sure how great it would look on me. But it does look awesome on you!

I'm having a $100 dollar shopbop giftcard giveaway on my blog! Come check it out :)

I really love color blocking too--especially with nude shoes (like you accessorized with!) So pretty!

Taylor said...

I love those pants...and I LOVE even more that you know they are good bc your man looks at you funny!!! Mine does the same when i thrown something outta the box on! LOVES!!!!

I am fully onboard with this trend but have yet to rock it bc i don't have the right pieces...one day!

Nicole Marie said...

His and Hers said...

I'm also loving the color-blocking trend and excited to try it! I love this look and pants. They're man-repeller FAB! :)

Nikki said...

I love this look :) I wasn't really seeing a jester glimpse in it :) For me this colour blocking trend is a bit too much, I like to stay neutral on my legs or torso. x

Style-Pursuit said...

Love, love, love all of it!!! :o)

I love your pants and you pull them off so well, but I'm wondering how you do it because I've tried on so many pairs and they all look terrible from the rear view! Is there some secret to keep from having mom butt or do you just have to embrace it?

Valerie said...

The color blocking trend is one of my favorites. I love the bright colors you used and the huge clutch. Such a pretty color top on you, Anna! I'm back from Detroit and the city was scary. Thankfully we stayed in Birmingham, which is actually really nice! Hope you're having a good week.

Anna Jane said...

@Anon - Ha, i love it! Sadly, these definitely give me "mom butt" and I think you just need to embrace it. That's probably why my fiance doesn't love them..but I do :)

April said...

Fun colors, girls! Work it!

Jhonatan Silva said...

Marie a la Mode said...

 PIECE OF CAKE. PEACE OF MIND.

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

You executed this look to perfection! Loving those pants...whenever the husband gives me that look I KNOW that the outfit is a winner! haha. xo

Collette Osuna said...

You chose awesome colors....I love this trend!!!

Santina said...

I see no jester here, just one stylish lady! My god, your legs go on for days in these pants - love them! And, I can't wait to get on the color-blocking trend though it's going to have to wait until I return to the States and update (finally!) my wardrobe a bit. Can't wait to see your next take on the trend!

this free bird said...

I don't know about color blocking, but I do love those pants. Here's the thing though Anna...I think I might need your legs to go with?

Taylor said...

i love the shape of that shirt, it gives such a nice silhouette!

lauren said...

Those pants are so flattering on you! I would wear them constantly if I were you!

Jester? Really? You crazy. This is elegant and gorgeous. The rich fuchsia and sapphire are amazing together. Love this look. I'm for true fit'n tah hook this look up in my own wardrobe.

Thanks for inspiring me yet again.

xo,

Bog-Bog said...

The pants has amazing colour and look so good with the blouse!

Hayley said...

I would not have thought jester had you not said it, think it is still adorable. LOVE the pants!!

Miss Amy N. said...

I love the rich color of the top! It's absolutely beautiful. It's much more street chic than jester!

Cheers.

Becca [Free Honey] said...

I don't think you look jester-y at all!! I think you look adorable. I've been wanting to jump on board with color blocking, but I don't really have any solid bottoms in interesting colors. Everything is either printed or bland. I'm definitely on the lookout for some red pants though - if I manage to find them, you better believe there's going to be color blocking!!

sometimes I know I've done a fashion "hit" if the bf doesn't understand it ;)

And what a marvelous job you did! These colors are right up my alley and I love that clutch!

Tamra of walkswithBella said...

I love the look of highwaisted jeans, but i'm not sure my short frame could rock it like that. perhaps i'll give it a try anyway. love the clutch.
best, tamra

love this outfit, looks great on you, hopefully i can pull it off as you have.

liz ^-^

Laurel said...

I am 100% convinced that men do not, and will not understand the high-waisted thing. I think I have my husband trained one day, and the next he is looking confusedly at my bum. There should be nothing confusing about my bum! But I don't care because I think high-waisted pants look awesome.

Mércia said...

pink and blue! i love this colors together!

Laura *You Stir Me* said...

oh i love that color combo! It's totally chic and very springy! You've inspired me to be a bit more daring in my outfits:)

Tracy said...

I have the same pants, and my husband said the same thing verbatim! LOL! I always know my cool meter is on high when he has no idea what I'm wearing!

La Petite Olga said...

You did a really great color blocking job!!
